“This is a school, not a restaurant”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2012

I was asked to review the UW as an eatery. The UW environs (meaning the streets adjacent and close to the UW) are filled with really good restaurants, but UW's campus food is...well...campus food. I hold a BA from UW, and I got a good education there, as well as a job afterward, which for most of us, is the goal. Pack your lunch before you go to school, friend, unless you have time and money to bop around off campus.

“Very Scenic Campus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2012

On Lake Washington, worth the trip around the campus. Greats views of the Lake and Cascades in the background. Do the Paddle boats on the lakefront.

Gorgeous hilly, green campus with stunning old and new architecture. Don't miss the library. Excellent dance & music at Meany Hall, regional history at Burke Museum and avant-garde art at the Henry Art gallery.
