University of Washington - Bothell Reviews

I am extremely grateful I chose to go attend the University of Washington Bothell campus. There are so many resources available to students that you won't feel lost as you would at bigger schools. One is class sizes only hold 30-60 students maximum in a classroom depending on the building. The tutoring center and the writing center are two great assets being offered for students like me. The library offers a great size as it holds quiet study areas, computer labs, study rooms, and even a wide selection of books! Additionally, there is a recreational center open to everyone to hang out, eat, and even finish homework on campus. The career and academic success center offer great advice for students to continue to work hard and strive for success. I think anyone would have a great experience at Bothell if they're looking for benefits like these.

The community is very welcoming, sociable, and motivated! I recently transferred here from a community college in Bellingham and love it so much more. There are lots of extra-curricular activity options and clubs to join depending on what your interests are. The campus is easy to navigate and classes easy to find on the first day.
Coming from a school system where a majority of students that I saw were Caucasian, I really enjoy seeing students of color from all kinds of backgrounds at UW Bothell. I have been more socially and politically aware of my education and environment.

However I, along with many other students, have not felt a sense of safety and security on campus. For example, during the election season, many of our Muslim students endured a LOT of physical and verbal harassment. Campus security and the administration are aware of MANY situations where our students were put in danger, but they don't actively take role to make these events stop. Overall, there were many situations that I have listened to and experienced for myself and my peers that have emphasized the lack of safety and security we feel at UW Bothell.
