What is your overall opinion of this school?

Through my four years at the University of Washington, I had noticed that the campus is artistically appealing. The old buildings, the ever so colorful trees, and the clean facilities truly make me believe that the campus is cared for. I do believe there needs to be much work on the campus as it is growing so fast, and the lines for the restroom, food, and other services make it hard to enjoy being on campus for reasons other than class. I think the off-campus housing is separate from the University, but the off-campus housing is questionable. Perhaps a better deal than the on-campus housing in terms of price but it is Seattle after all.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The university of Washington campus is great. There are many resources and connections to take advantage of, and being a part of the University has been a great experience in meeting students from different backgrounds and experiences. The amount of clubs and activities they offer is amazing and I recommend taking advantage of everything you can.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UW is a great university with lots of opportunities, both academically and outside of school. Some of the reasons I love my school is because of the wide variety of majors offered, the campus's commitment to sustainability, and the access to extra help that is available. I do wish they did have a better on-campus housing system, as there's never enough dorms for all the students which makes it really expensive. But overall, the student life available is unlike any other college and UW is a fantastic school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UW was my dream school as a child and I feel incredibly luck to have been accepted. It is very expensive and slightly uninhabitable at times when trying to find off-campus housing and food but I don't regret my choice to come here. The professors are amazing and care about the students learning. I wish I had more time than the two years that I've been allotted giving my status as a Running Start student, but earning a bachelor's at 20 years old will be pretty cool.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think the academics are great and there are plenty of opportunities to get involved with whatever you may be interested in. My biggest concern lies with the safety of the area surrounding the campus. I have seen so much crime and it doesn't seem like there efforts to reduce that.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion if the school is that it offers a lot of opportunities, but you have to pursue them yourself, since it's a huge school. You can definitely find your niche here, and really be successful. It's also very beautiful, and there are lots of greenery, buildings, etc.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Washington is quite a large school that has an exceptional atmosphere filled with numerous of academic and extra-curricular opportunities. Another great aspect of the University is that it has the #1 hospital in the state right on campus. And did I mention the ongoing research! The UW is the #1 funded research university in the nation. This allows for you to get involved rather easily, and who knows, you could be a part of the next great discovery!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

You have to be a certain kind of student at the University of Washington. It is very fast-paced, very crowded, and most students are so intensely grade-focused and there is so much competition at the school that they don't necessarily want to be your friend. You're competition. It can be hard if you are not academically driven and if you don't handle pressure well. Classes, especially for STEM majors are rarely under 200 people, move very quickly, and sometimes it takes 15 minutes to get across campus to your next one when you only get 10 minutes. However, the UW has so many extra-curriculars, events, and clubs to help make the campus seem smaller, and to get your mind off your busy schedule if you happen to find the time to take a break from school. The school spirit at UW is among the highest I have ever seen, and it truly is a treat to be able to be a part of the UW family if you can hack it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I was a former student of UW, transferring elsewhere with a change in major with no fault to the school, per say (a death in the family motivated a change). It's competitive (in the competitive majors) and it's good and hearty for those who thrive in such an environment. People are friendly, the staff are available given their hours (I've been informed that some colleges don't have instructors with office hours at all and I am appalled). Some classes are just a tad big where you become anonymous in a sea of students and are just about irrelevant to the professors unless you come to them for person-to-person interaction. My experience at the college was rather bland. There's plenty of opportunities, I will say, for it to be otherwise. There are so many extra-curriculars! I know that the physics department had a great community and were hosting get-togethers time to time and I always loved attending Batman's Kitchen when I could. In the two years I was here, though, I was merely friendless and the large population that was ever shifting between my classes made it hard for me, personally, to connect to anyone substantially. My only reservation with this school is when you fail to obtain a spot in a competitive major. They have 'pre-major's that allow you some access to certain classes, but they don't guarantee your spot in the actual major you intend on going. The advisors will try their best to prepare you for alternatives, but it's disheartening for the stubborn when you're delegated off into something else. My friend, who was in a similar situation, now advises others not to bother if they get into such programs. "Get into the department," She says, "If you don't, don't bother." Moreover, she's had a situation where the general advisor told her she wasn't their student (despite her no longer qualifying to go under an pre-engineering advisor's wing). I was told by another advisor that I was some or so years late if I wanted to switch into a different program as it took a certain amount of years to complete (I don't find time an issue - I will take as much time as education needs. Hearing this made it sound as though they wanted me to graduate ASAP and it finalized my decision that this school would not align with my interests going forward with a major-change). Moreover, there seems to be a problem with individuals who fail to get into their chosen major and end up stepping back into other competitive majors to compensate. This results in limited spots being taken up by students who don't really want to be there. I have met maybe the one professor who didn't seem to quite have everything together. For the most part, however, I have met many professors and instructors who are extraordinarily amazing at what they do with a passion towards the community and a passion towards teaching. It's a good school with its ups and downs. Wasn't the school for me. But, it's a good school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I've had enriching experiences in the classes but the system isn't great. I don't feel like the administration staff really care about me and the overall university body seems to prioritize money over its students and teacher assistants. There are also ridiculous fees every single quarter.
