University of Washington Reviews
Review University of Washington
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!
UW has literally everything anyone could need. It's in the middle of one of the coolest cities in the world, so everything is close by. Additionally, the campus is gorgeous, making it so easy to be happy here everyday walking to class. Classes are hard here, but really as hard as you want them to be. Anyone can do average, but you'll really do as well as you want to. Campus life is very positive, everyone is very happy here, socializing isn't difficult whatsoever, and partying after school work is done is one of the best ways to have a good time, meet new people, and relax! Sports are awesome, the professors are very engaging and enthusiastic, and it's so easy to fall in love with the school. UDub has it all!
So far so good! I currently renting a house with a couple of seniors who also attend UW and every single one of us has had quite the satisfying experience. The professors I've had has been very helpful in helping me learn the material as well as being engaging during lectures. I haven't been to very many football games but as the scoreboard shows, UW's football team, as well as many other sports, has been top notch. UW's basically centered nicely in Seattle in a way where there are a variety of places to do and to eat, so you'll never be bored!
