Degree: Biochemistry
Graduation Year: 2017

I have attended classes in both UW's Seattle campus and Bothell campus. Honestly, in terms of understanding the material, I love Bothell way more because of the help from tutor center and professors. It is much easier to build a strong relationship with your professor and the research opportunities are much more approachable than Seattle campus. This does not mean that you could achieve better GPA or career potential though, as Bothell stem professors are not so generous with curving. I do find it suprising that Seattle campus 400 level classes students cannot quite write a decent lab report. Basically you just get better training outcome which is similar to apprenticiship system.

Degree: Science, Technology and Society
Graduation Year: 2015

UW Bothell was a great school for me, it felt like I was in a private school while paying public school prices for my degree. For instance, 100 - 200 level STEM classes (such as BIO 100 or CALC 100) tend to have anywhere from 800 - 1000 students per class at UW Seattle, While Bothell typically has 50-100 students per class for those type of classes. UW Bothell is not as social as UW Seattle, it's more of a commuter school and noticeably has more older students as well. So I would definitely recommend living on campus or joining a club or organization on campus if you're looking for a more social environment. My degree was part of the Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences (IAS) program. I knew this program fit the best for me because it was creative and offered a pretty diverse set of classes I could choose from. Unfortunately no one tells you just how hard it will be to find a job after you get a liberal arts degree. Even though I loved IAS, I think they could have prepared us more. If I were to get a degree in the School of IAS again, I would either do the Interactive Media Design major or the Mathematical Thinking and Visualization major. Both of these majors seem equally creative and multidisciplinary, and would probably be the most promising majors within the IAS department (in terms of employment after college).

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2016

As a graduate of the Comparative History Department at the University of Washington, I can say that I have acquired a new perspective and ability to critically analyze the world. When I first started, the way I looked at the world was a product of my experiences. Through exposure to histories of other cultures, histories of institutions and realms of thought, my mind and heart transformed. I had the opportunity to study abroad twice, and immerse myself in understanding other cultures which in turn lead to a deeper understanding of myself. This program is truly one of a kind. I had the best professors and met some of the most creative people I have ever encountered. I found a space to be myself and explore my passions, and received individualized support and guidance along the way. I want to encourage people to participate in this program, even as a double or a minor. You don't want to miss this experience!!

Good college, it was fun and educational. But each student should do their own research before jumping in

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2004

UW is a big school so find ways to make it feels smaller. Live on campus, join clubs, make friends and just try something new.
