University of Washington - Tacoma Reviews
UWT has very supportive staff members who care for all their students. The professors are very energetic and love what they do. This makes the whole classroom experience a great environment to learn. I admire the diversity and constant focus on ensuring every student is safe, and having equal educational experiences. University of Washington Tacoma additionally, offers many diverse programs for every field!
University of Washington-Tacoma Campus is great! There is a variety of awesome majors to choose from. Many interesting clubs to join and in a diverse environment. This campus has a YMCA free membership for Huskies, great Teaching Learning Center for tutoring; overall a great community.
I love UW Tacoma! The city is beautiful, the buildings have so much character! The professors are amazing and truly care about their students. One improvement I would make is regarding diversity. The majority of students and faculty are white. This is an issue because students need to see faculty and leaders that look like them. We cannot truly say we value diversity and equity if we aren't making the changes to our hiring policies that are so desperately needed.
