University of Washington - Seattle Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (70)
I am proud to be a UW graduate- forever Husky! Despite the rainy season in Seattle, attending the University of Washington was one of the greatest experience. The professors are sincere about the students' well-being and the campus is like no other in the nation.
Hard to get a start in because I didn't know what I wanted to do and it is such a big school. Once I found my niche in Sociology, I absolutely loved the program and the faculty.
Very good environment for learning, very open and understanding staff and student body.
I had a great experience at the University of Washington. The campus is beautiful, and dorm life is fairly typical of most four-year universities. The introductory classes are fairly large, but upper division courses are smaller and provide more individualized support.
The University of Washington is a big school for a reason. Bigger schools means a lot of opportunities. It also means that you will be challenged and be pushed to your limits. This school not only allows students to freely express themselves but also encourage students to take big risks.The University of Washington doesn't want students to be comfortable because comfort doesn't create successful and risk taking individuals. I'm glad that I went to the University of Washington. I was pushed to explore different interests and careers and I got to travel around the world. If you want a school that provides a lot of unique opportunities, go to the University of Washington.
Excellent institution with lots of variety, options, and faculty to work with. Strong research institution to collaborate with. Good cross department working.
Quality of teachers and instruction are mostly stellar. Student-to-teacher ratio can be disappointing the first year or two. You must be proactively pursuing resources to find the aid or advice needed for your particular major, research or internship opportunities related to your career goals, or to find alternate sources of funding. With a school this large, this can often be an overwhelming process to find the who, what, where for each item of concern.
Everything I am today I learned from Washngton,a wonderful expreienced faculty that has reshaped my understanding to the modern world ,it has enabled me inspire others in more ways I didnt think I could ,as I go travelling all over the world I feel quite confident interacting and facing all forms of social ,political and economic forces the world has to offer,What makes it so special is the approach it has given me to challenge myself and realize in life it's more of knowlegde and wisdom that works. I am proud to be a bona fide student of Washington University.
Attending UW was a great experience- I was challenged, and I felt like the professors were top-notch. I enjoyed going to school there even if I ultimately didn't end up using my degree.
I definitely appreciated the smaller classes with more discussion and hands on learning. It is very important to know your learning style & find a school that fits your needs. It's silly to go to a school where you are 1 of 1,000+ in a lecture hall when you are a hands on learner like myself. I learned the hard way!
