University of Washington - Tacoma Reviews
Review University of Washington - Tacoma
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!
The University of Washington Tacoma just finished building a new YMCA for all students. Granted the fact that the membership fee adds on top of the tuition, It is still an amazing perk for each student as they are blessed the opportunity to utilize all the brand new programs and equipment. I've gone there almost everyday since it was built(1 year ago). Varsity sports aren't as big of a deal at UWT because all the teams perform at the UW Seattle campus. Intramurals are much more popular because UWT is so small the people love to have fun. The University of Washington Tacoma provides students with plenty of ways to maintain healthy physical habits. I love it here!
I love UWT! I love how every professor interacts with us separately, we're not a number in a 500 person lecture. I've formed meaningful relationships with many of my professors and I know that all of them would be willing to write me any kind of letter of recommendation based on knowing me personally and knowing my work personally. UWT does not use TA's, which I love! We get to have actual professors as well as lecturers who are trained in their fields and are so knowledgeable.
