Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 1966

The University of Washington and the Foster School of Business are exemplary. Makes me wish I still lived in Seattle area to visit the campus frequently. The Alumni association keeps me connected although I did two later degrees at other institutions. I have a Masters from City University and a doctorate from Capella University. Living and working situations prevented me from continuing at UofW. It is still the best, most community involved university I am aware of.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

UW is by far the prettiest college I have attended. I strongly believe that this school is very diverse and many of the professors really cares about their students and is always available for additional help. Transportation around the area is great and there are many restaurants around.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2012

I attended the University of Washington, Seattle Honors program where I double majored in Microbiology and Biochemistry. I enjoyed the rigor and challenges my programs offered me, which helped prepared me for medical school. Being a huge public research school, UW offers a lot of research opportunities to anyone who is interested in. I also loved the diversity of student populations, where I met some of my best friends. The school location is very well situated, with easy bus access to downtown Seattle and other neighborhoods. The school is essentially its own city with lots of dining and fitness options around the area. UW also has a huge and excellent gym that all students can utilize. The gym also offer fitness classes to students. There are lots of student organizations for everyone to be involved in as well. Overall, UW is a superb school that offers challenging and rewarding education in a convenient location with lots of things to do around the school.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2010

The University of Washington's Sociology department is very welcoming and has strong instructors. There is a tight hold around what can be studied within the department though. Economics and inequality are some areas that can be studied. While I wish there were more classes targeted to my interest (Sociology of Religion and Family) it prepared me well to go onto a Master's degree.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2013

The University of Washington is a beautiful school in a beautiful city. Outdoor enthusiasts will love the proximity to multiple national parks as well as urban parks. My favorites are North Cascades National Park and Golden Gardens Park. I did not have a car during undergrad which meant I biked to school and around campus everyday. The entire city is very bike friendly. As far as academics go the UW was very challenging as classes, especially intro series and basic requirements, are giant. It is hard to stay focused and engaged during a 700 person lecture. This is why I liked the UW much more after deciding my major. I was able to take smaller classes with teachers and classmates that I got to know personally.

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2011

I would highly recommend the Medical Anthropology and Global Health program at the University of Washington. The program includes materials from multiple disciplines. The classes combine concepts from all forms of Eastern and Western medicine and cover many different opinions and viewpoints.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 1988

I received a great, well-rounded education at a top-notch university. It motivated me to move onto further my education working in the social service arena (I went on to get a master's degree in Counseling/Psychology). The campus is beautiful and the staff excellent. I highly suggest doing an internship during your senior year. I received financial aid all 4 years I attended.
