This commuter school is perfect for the traditional and nontraditional student! The professors were amazing, with the exception with one every here and there, but other than that, it was a great school.

You also get the prestige that comes with the name "University of Washington" at a smaller campus, since this is an extension of the main campus in Seattle.

I'm glad I decided to pursue higher education here. I really didn't want to choose a huge campus, so I decided to go to UWB instead of the campus in Seattle, and I do not regret my decision. UWB has a very welcoming and inclusive atmosphere (one of the best, if not the most, perks of this campus), and I truly felt that the professors invested a lot in making sure students succeed and feel welcome. This campus has a lot of resources for students as well, such as the writing and communication center, career services center, and the quantitative skills center.

I'm was in the Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences program and I really enjoyed what I've learned over the course of my education at UWB. My experience has consisted of a lot of writing papers, group work and projects, presentations, and group/class discussions. The professors I've had have been really knowledgeable and passionate about what they're teaching.

Overall, I've had mostly good experiences here.
I have been at the University of Washington Bothell for my junior year of college and it is a lovely school. The campus is small and personable and is great for others that learn well in small class sizes. The academic level is high and there are many resources to get help, such as the QSC (Quantitative Skills Center), professor office hours, and designated peer study group areas. In addition UWB has plenty of opportunities to get involved in student campus life. Events are held daily and with over 70 clubs to choose from there is something for you. The experience at this university is like no other and I would recommend the University of Washington Bothell to any student looking for a highly ranked small institution.
