With UWT, you get a UW quality education with Community College size classes. It's the best of both worlds! The campus is located in downtown Tacoma. They remodeled old factory buildings, so you have a really cool urban/vintage feel walking around campus. There are lots of clubs and things to do on campus, but don't expect much around campus past 5 PM. You'll have to drive down Pacific Ave or 6th Ave for that.

I like how the campus isn't so big so you see lots of familiar faces. The students are friendly and very welcoming. I like the environment and the many restaurant choices that are close by. They have a bus transit right in front of the school so you are free to go wherever without walking too far. I like the University Y center, students can take fitness classes, play sports, work out and it's right next to the student housing which is great!
A small college with about 3,000 students. Very cozy location with many shops and museums for students to visit as well as the added convenience of an apartment building converted to a dorm right across the street from the campus. Buildings are all fixed-up factory warehouses, giving the area a really old-timey look. Administrative departments tend to have trouble talking to each other, but everybody you talk to is genuinely helpful. Very easy for freshman to get familiar with the campus. Signs make it really easy to navigate.
