UW is fantastic. One of the top universities in the US and around the world. I had such an amazing experience there as a student. I would recommend it for people looking to apply. It also has an amazing view of the Cherry Blossom trees - originally meant to be in the shape of a U (so you could see... More

Beautiful campus. Easy to walk around. Some of the older buildings have very interesting and classic architectural detail.

We had a great day at Husky Stadium last night to watch the Huskies take on Portland Vikings. The stadium staff was friendly and the food was awesome. Food was not priced too high...normal for a college football game. The new stadium was clean and had plenty of restrooms and places to eat. The new stadium has a great new... More

I have been on this campus at least four times and have been favorably impressed with each visit. My last visit was to the University Club for a small conference. The view of the lake from there was quite lovely. The layout of the campus, for the size of the institution, is not too onerous. It is, thus, not too... More

The UW campus is one of the nicest in the US, so come check it out. If you happen to be in town when the cherry blossoms are up (usually around March), definitely stop by and experience this for yourself. GO HUSKIES!

Well, I may be a little bias, I graduated from UW and worked there as well. Campus has got to be at the top as far as beauty goes (I've also worked at Brandeis and UNR) and visited many other campuses. Makes for a nice walk if you want to go around the entire campus or cut through the middle.... More

There are mountain vistas, flower beds, and fountains. Geographically, the campus is separated into an upper campus for education, business, and liberal arts and the lower for engineering and the sciences. Additionally, there... More

The vista to Mt Rainier on a clear day is just incredible with the lake and all. The quad during the spring time is absolutely gorgeous with the cherry trees in bloom. The old buildings have lots of history - great place to do your walking or biking even in the rain - there is much to see and look... More

It is a very impressive sequel of hundred years buildings in a lovely scenery. Wonderful promenade in the cherry blooming season and lovely at other times. Recommended to enter the areas of personal interest and have staff briefing. I also introduced myself to a couple of students and had a brilliant tour of what it is there for young people... More
