Very lovely and vast campus. Bring a bike or rent one, so you can explore more without tiring yourself out, walking all over the place. Go to the library and see the "Harry Potter Reading Room."

One of the great land grant universities. The campus is gorgeous in the spring (see the cherry blossoms in the pic) and on any clear day, where you can look down from the fountain directly to Mt. Rainier. Fans ride their boats across Lake Washington to attend football games.

The campus is spread out and offers a variety of educational events to study. People are very friendly and the dorms offer a relaxed atmosphere to stay in.

This campus is really beautiful and fun to walk around. It has a combination of old building (check out the library which has a reading room out of Hogwarts) and minder architecture. There is an anthropology museum, fountain, grassy meadows and views of the lake. Nice place for a quite stroll.

The view of Mt Rainier from Frosh Pond (Drumheller Fountain). The Quad in spring time with the cherry blossoms. The water from the boathouse. Regal Suzzallo library. Enough said.

Greg S. was our tour guide and did an excellent job! He was entertaining, knowledgable and was refreshingly frank about his background that lead to him attending to University of Washington. The campus itself was very large and beautiful and first choice of all the colleges visited.
