This is Husky Country! Beautiful campus, lots of lovely and beautiful buildings. You do not want to miss the Suzzallo Graduate Library! Stunning! You feel like you entered a Harry Potter movie. The Drumheller Fountain is also worth seeing. You will get lots of exercise visiting here.

We had heard the rental canoes were in the Arboretum, but found out that they are actually part of the University. They are $9 an hour and what fun.

This is a great campus! We walked from our friends house and found a student going our way. He not only helped with directions but walked with us most of the way. On campus, there were more friendly students. Don't miss this place!!

My title says it all...Bring a picnic...Book...Or friend, and enjoy the landscape. The chubbiest squirrels on the face of the earth. They will climb your leg in the hope of a nut. Their bellies are so round from donations their little thighs point outward to nine and three o'clock.

UW Seattle has a beautiful campus with Gothic architecture. The HUB is a very under-utilized resource on-campus (because it's usually empty). Students can play bowling, rent games, play ping pong, table hockey, FREE foosball (w/student ID). I like to take guests on a campus tour, and they're always surprised by the architecture. It's not a big campus, so an average... More
