What is the stereotype of students at your school?

Eastern Washington is more like the South, kind of ignorant and white trash and very dry and flat and colorless. However, once you get west, it is beautiful and green and Seattle is one of the most educated cities in the country. Washington students are interesting. Many undergrads have a "could care less attitude" but there are many who are very driven and are at school because they have something they want to learn. UW is better for graduate school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a big school with something for everyone, lots of student organizations & clubs. It has a lot of prestige in this area & around the nation. Prospective employers have always responded very favorably. Seattle is so much more than a college town, it's a world-class city with lots to do, great nightlife & fab restaurants.

Describe the students at your school.

Lots of diversity, which makes for great after-class coffee talk. People are open-minded and casual.

What is the stereotype of students at your school?

Very liberal, and very competitive; lots of outdoor activities & active people

What are the academics like at your school?

Students are serious about their studies, classes are tough & engaging, and upper division classes usually have smaller class sizes, so there's a chance to get to know your prof & participate.

People tend to stick to their group of friends and a lot of people who go Greek don't really leave the Greek scene.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The best part of UW is the campus. It's ridiculously beautiful; a great place to learn. It's huge and sprawling but you can still walk anywhere and you're guaranteed a nice walk. The reaction when people hear I go to UW is a kind of awe. It solicits comments like, "wow you must be smart," or "congratulations."

Describe the students at your school.

With scores of thousands of people, chances are you can find just about any type of person you can think. It's like walking through a rainbow.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

The diversity at UW means that you can find any kind of organization you want. We have everything from the arch conservative religious fringe groups to the amateur pornographers club. And we all coexist pretty peacefully. Situated in a lively university district and right next to the bustling heart of Seattle, there's always a gallimaufry of activities suited to any chemical alterations you may have made to your brain.

What are the academics like at your school?

If you want your professors to know your name they will. Come early, sit in front stay after a few minutes and ask some questions. They teach becase they like to teach. They want to talk to you.

Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

No and yes. We do party, but we do our homework too. That's why the second stereotype is true.

What is the stereotype of students at your school?

People assume we don't party. We are known for being far superior academically than WSU

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

You know you're at UW if... Everyone around you is wearing northface and drinking coffee or tea. It's raining but there are very few umbrellas in use. When the sun is shining there are a million people at the local parks, there are ridiculously long lines at every aquatic rental place and there are thousands of people just sitting or playing outside. It is snowing, hailing, raining and freezing cold the very next day after it was hot and sunny. You are trying to eat soup in the dining hall but your spoon has disintegrated in your bowl because the utencils have "Gone Green". "Going Green" is trendy. There are people randomly shouting speeches and voicing their opinions using mega-phones in red square.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Washington has amazing opportunities to take advantage of. Although many will say that's its too big or in the middle of a rainy city, the campus environment has everything to suit your needs; whatever they may be. Diversity is number one at UW and there are multiple facets available for students. Student groups are also very prominent. With over 500 different registered groups, it becomes more of a challenge deciding which ones to join, not if to join at all. Smack dab in the middle of Seattle, it provides an excellent social climate for students to visit the city.

Describe the students at your school.

The University of Washington's student body is the most diverse you will find anywhere. Diversity is the university's number one priority. With a plethora of student groups, no student feels unwanted. Students range from a variety of backgrounds but with financial aid and scholarships, class is not really prevalent so it is not apparent what backgrounds people come from. And despite the liberal stance of Seattle, the university has students from all over the political spectrum and each has its group so no one feels out of place.

UW Rocks! You will have the time of your life and be changed forever by the experience!

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

The Residence Halls have a leadership/involvement program called RHSA which is a system set up so the voices of those living in the halls can be heard. It also provides programs for residents to make them feel less out of place living in the halls. It depends on where you live but most people will wander from room to room to talk to people. However, there are also floor and hall programs to get to know your neighbors. Staying up late is part of the deal. I am usually up till around 1 am doing homework because i am so busy during the day but that comes with time management. Partying is not that common and can be avoided if you want to. Of course there are those groups that do, but it is not as much of a college must as the movies make it out to be.

Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

Of course not, stereotypes never are.

What are the academics like at your school?

Professors at the UW range in their personalities. Fortunately, I have had excellent professors thus far. My class sizes are not too large, on average around 200, but i sit near the front so it makes the experience seem close to a common high school class. In section, the class is split up so participation is much easier and common. Students give honest and open-ended feedback and debate with each other in a safe environment. I have mainly taken Political Science classes so I can only account for these but I assume others are similar.

It rains all the time, we are crazy hippies,

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Most people don't realize that Washington is a great academic school, especially for a public university. The school is made up of a large number of Seattle natives and also a large number of out of state students, including me. The campus is pretty big, but easy to navigate with the use of a map if you don't know where you're going. Washington has good school pride, but not so much that its overwelming. The campus offers a diverse selection of activities, from clubs to the waterfront to the study abroad program.

Describe the students at your school.

Washington is made up of every type of student possible. Everywhere you go there are diffirent styles of clothing and status's, and no one really seems to notice when they interact. All types of students interact, it just depends on whether or not you wish to interact too.

Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

It is true that a lot of students are from the Seattle area, but thas because Washington is a public school. However you still meet a hude diversity of people from different states and even countries. Its also not true that most students get depressed during the winter there are many ways to counter the effects of the winter.

What is the stereotype of students at your school?

Some stereotypes of Washington are that the school is made up of mostly students from Seattle, and that most students get depressed during the winterbecause of the weather.

What are the most popular student activities/groups?

Washington has just as many activities and groups as you can imagine. Students can go to the gym, hang out in lounges, go to the waterfront, or even catch a bus to downtown Seattle. If you are a partier there allways seems to be something offered, but for those who arn't big into that there are lots of things to do instead.

What are the academics like at your school?

While many lectures have 100 or more students, professors have office hours where they offer their help to anyone who needs it. Every teacher has their own teaching style, some give straight lectures, other have student participation, or find some other way to make lecture more interesting. I personally dont spend to much time with my professors outside of class but its nice to know that if I ever need their help they are there to help me.

Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

While a majority of students do return home on weekends, this is not necessarily a negative factor. I enjoy being able to take a 40 minute bus ride home and visiting with my family and friends from back home whenever I choose to return. The student population is not predominantly Asian. But the school is very diverse, which is something I value greatly.

What is the stereotype of students at your school?

A few of my friends at other colleges in Washington said that people believe that UW students return home every weekend, and the student population is predominantly Asian.
