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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think I have to first establish that I am a third generation Seattlite from an inner city activist high school. I also spent virtually all of high school (and honestly some of middle school) enthusiastically researching small liberal arts colleges that were very far away from home. I was super excited to experience life somewhere else in the country and I always knew that if I stayed in city for college I wouldn't be able to justify the cost of living on campus and I'd end up living with my parents at home. In the end, I couldn't really make the finances work anywhere else so I ended up here. So, going in to college I wasn't quite the epitome of husky pride. Despite the fact that it wasn't the smartest financial decision, I chose to live on campus. I aimed for West Campus but got placed in Haggett. Haggett is super old and the rooms are not very well lit, but the bathrooms are well renovated and I liked the social aspect. They were definitely incredibly over priced, however, and so I will be moving back home next year. I started the year in LSJ classes, which were incredibly interesting and I felt that succeeding in them was accessible as long as you put in effort. However, I found it really frustrating that a lot of my classmates were super centrist and so interpret that as you will, but I felt that most of our discussions were incredibly hindered by this factor. I am now taking mostly drama classes. These classes were small and more hands on and for the most part I have enjoyed them. A lot of the students don't even know that UW has a drama department and the lack of funding means that there is a hiring freeze that will be in place for the entire time I'm at UW. However, because of this there are not many people applying for arts opportunities. I got a great internship through this department and I got to learn how to run lights for a show. I have also had great experiences with the english department, including an amazing creative writing class taught by a grad student and a class on podcasting. Socially, I've found a lot of the students rather unfriendly. The general population has little interest in the arts and no one really wants to engage in light debates which sort of surprised me because I thought that that's what college kids like to do. They instead go play team sports for fun (ie rock climbing, frisbee in the quad). Everyone who I know who is involved with Greek life seems to be super happy, and there are so many different houses that if you really want to be involved, someone will except you. Most of seem to be "blonde only" but there are definitely some that aren't and even some that don't do rush. There are lots of right wing activists that come on campus with really hateful signs and there isn't really anything anyone can do about it but it has been a major part of my experience that I feel should be mentioned. Also, although this hasn't affected me, I have seen the competitive major system kill dreams. So if you come here set on computer science, you may end up disappointed. I have had lots of opportunities here outside of drama as well and for that I am grateful, I get to go abroad twice next year and it costs about the same as just living on west campus would. So overall, if you are a student looking for a large research University, this may be a great place for you. Especially if you like rain, recreational sports, STEM, and hope to go Greek. If this doesn't sound like you, you may want to keep looking.

The University of Washington is definitely a school that I've dreamed about going to for a long time. Now that I have, I truly believe it lives up to its expectations. All you have to do is work hard, focus, and be passionate to succeed at a school like this.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the University of Washington. Its a very hands on school with plenty of opportunities. Sometimes it can feel more like a graduate school and sometimes a lot for undergrads to go through but once you make it past the hump its totally rewarding! It has a great student life, sport involvement and enthusiasm (GO DAWGS!) , facilities, location, and so much more. It's a fantastic school :)

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school offers vast opportunities for the students to gain exposure to desired fields as well as get involved in social scenes across campus. Due to the magnitude of the college the campus offer diversity both of the population, class content and the offerings. Among my favorite memories are meeting the new people in my classes along with my interactuve teachers. UW is home. Despit being far larger than any other class size I feel safe and comfortable explroing new ideas and asking questions. For this UW is a great school with the experience to match its state charm and reputation.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Washington-Seattle Campus, is my dream university. I moved to Washington with the purpose of attending the University of Washington, and I happened to be one of the lucky ones that got in. As a result, I pretty much love everything about the campus. It is a beautiful. The students are actively engaged in everything, the professors tend to know what they are talking about and are very helpful, and the advisers in the various undergraduate majors are extremely active in keeping their students in the know (I get multiple emails a day from the English department to the point that it is actually kind of annoying). I learned on my very first day that this school wants you to succeed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Washington may not be the friendliest campus, but hey, that's the city of Seattle as a whole, and you'd be hard pressed to find a more beautiful campus. Science, math, and engineering are particularly emphasized on this campus, and with multiple big employers like Google and Amazon in the city this can only be a good thing. As long as you don't mind starting out with 800 people in a classroom, you'll get some of the best teachers, including lectures from nobel laureates, and have plenty of opportunities to learn and grow at every corner.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UW was pretty but thats just about it. Lots of liberals who pretend to get football on Saturdays in the fall and spend more time with there nose in a book than at social events pretty much sums up the student body. It sounds harsh but as a WSU Coug I can confidently say, if you want to enjoy college and are looking at UW, you are about 300 miles too far west. GO COUGS!

I love the University of Washington! The academics are the campus is beautiful. Professors and Teaching Assistants are very helpful and really understand their area of study. In addition to great academics, UW has a great social environment and well established sport following. It is very easy for students to join clubs and recreational sports at UW.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love love love the University of Washington! The campus is beautiful, the classes are challenging enough to make you push yourself, and most of the students are very involved in the school. It is my first year here and I am super excited to spend the next years here as well!
