Beautiful, old campus

Even if you just pop by for a quick tour, this is a pretty neat place to see. Lots of old Seattle history.

We've been here twice, and there always seemed to be some special event with authors present for book signings.

Make sure to check out the campus during Spring for the Japanese Cherry Blossom or fall for the foliage. The Suzzallo Library and the Drumhellar fountain are also definitely worth seeing, another with the Arboretum Garden nearby.

So far, this has been the best university out of all the tours we have done for our daughters future career.

If you don't mind some walking, this campus is very attractive. It has a large fountain with ducks. The Henry Art Museum (free on some Thursday).

We were visiting from Indiana on a campus visit. It was an amazing campus and definitely my son's favorite campus so far. It was clean and easy to navigate. Be sure to take a campus tour! I especially liked being able see Mount Rainier from the fountain.

Don't forget to eat at the Northlake Tavern and Pizza House when visiting the U District. Best pizza in town for years.

The campus box the university is lovely beautiful. Grass and tree everywhere and building are awesome. The only problem is the parking, not much place for this purpose.

I recommend visiting this campus area when in Seattle. They have large football and basketball stadiums as well as a fabulous shopping center next to it.
