The UW campus is beautiful year-round, one of the loveliest in the US (at least). The grounds are very well kept and it's nice just to walk around (possibly combine with an Arboretum visit, just to the south). Two small but high-quality museums on campus, the Henry Art Gallery and Burke Museum (small admissions fees). Also a must is to... More

The collegiate atmosphere and architecture make the UW campus perfect for families wanting to provide children in grades K-11 exposure to a university campus. Touring Suzzalo Library also makes a real impact on young people.

The library building is amazing and the cherry blossoms on campus were in full bloom. Was fun to visit my sister's alma mater with her.

There are endless resources for students, you just have to go to them! The school feels smaller once you build a community of friends, advisers, and acquaintances. Beautiful campus, friendly people, lots of places to go for anything--studying, snacks, advice/help, making friends, getting involved...I'm so glad I chose to go to school here!

Lots of buildings that have been renovated inside but maintain their original character. Beautiful walkways, some of which highlight a view of Mt. Rainier. My day was probably one of the finest, weather-wise. The imprint of the Gates family is clear.

We stayed at University Inn nearby the school so we can see the cherry blossom. Unfortunately the cherry blossom in the main quad has already bloomed and we missed it. We walked around the campus and saw other cherry blossom and flowers. It is a beautiful campus.
