University of Washington Reviews
Review University of Washington
UW is an amazing school. There are free giveaways occasionally and the campus looks amazing. The many libraries provide ideal places to study and the teachers, faculty, and TAs are really supportive, at least in my experience so far. The weather is usually always overcast and its good because most people are not in the mood to get distracted, but it could be a bit gloomy. The student benefits are also very nice- free bus passes and access to the IMA (the gym). I believe UW is considered a public Ivy League university and I can confidently say that the classes are really rigorous! 40% of the students here are Asian ( a lot are international students) so there is also a lot of competition. I definitely recommend going to the UW if you are serious about education!
It has been a very welcoming community since acceptance! There are more opportunities available than you can imagine. However, nothing is going to fall into your lap; you have to reach out to be supported by the plethora of resources. Unfortunately, some of the dorms are going under renovation, so it can be difficult to gain access to on campus housing after Freshman and Sophomore year.
I went to UW because I was a Seattle born girl who has never thought once about leaving the city. Also because all throughout high school I've done programs at UW and completely fell in love. I called it home before I even had the chance to apply. The campus is beautiful. The classes are challenging, I mean come on its college. There are TONS of things you can do at UW besides take classes. I have opportunities here where coming from my background I would never imagine myself doing. Hands down one of the best decisions of my life was to come to this University!
