University of Washington - Bothell Reviews
I attended Cascadia and transferred to UW Bothell to finish my undergraduate degree in Biology and I am beyond blessed for this school. The campus is clean and the perfect size to be tight knit with your peers but not overwhelmingly large or small. I love their edible garden near the library, too. It is obvious this campus is dedicated to reducing their carbon footprint. If you're into sustainability like I am, you'll have appreciation for this. I recently heard about this outdoor club, too. They plan affordable backpacking/white water rafting/etc trips. I have nothing negative to say about this institution. Thanks UWB!
It's been fantastic so far! As my first year draws to a close I learned a lot about the campus that really showed me the difference between High School and College. While I admittedly still have much to learn when it comes to everything the University of Washington Bothell I can rest easily knowing that I'm excited for what the future holds. Speaking of, the professors here are absolutely fantastic and incredibly astute in their studies, something that has definitely improved from my transition into College. Also, being a minority I’ve found my peers to be very accepting of me and to feel included wherever I am. Go Huskies!
When I was touring college I toured 14 different campuses all over the country, but University of Washington Bothell was by far the most diverse and accepting campus of all of them. The community is small enough to feel like a family but large enough so you dont feel stuck. The dorms have an amazing view of the local Pacific Northwest Wetlands, and are well updated and fully furnished apartment style. The professors are engaging and well respected in their fields. There are limited food options on campus, but if you like Subway and Pho you'll love it here!
