The area around campus, the U-district, has a lot to offer to students. There is tons of food, festivals, farmers markets, and also homeless people. The Ave, the main street on campus, has lots a shopping (Urban, American Apparel, some other clothing stores) and tons of international foods. The food is amazing. However, don't walk alone after 9 or 10 at night because it can be kind of a sketchy area!
Residential areas, the freeway, parks. North includes the Greek district, a veer west gets you the nice neighborhood in the Green Lake area, northeast is the high-end shopping center, the University District. South and east: water!
