University of Washington - Seattle Reviews, Bachelor's in Business
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.
The University of Washington offers a competitive and diverse array of degree opportunities. If you want to earn a degree that is highly revered among employers and valuable in your job search, the University of Washington is a great choice. There is also a great deal of community and involvement opportunities for every hobby or unique interest you may have.
Overall, the UW is a great school with great resources. You will find anything there. But it is also a huge campus and can be hard to find your way. Get involved - clubs, sports, tutoring - anything to get some grounding and a support network. Try lots of things until you find what suits you. Often after you're matriculated, you'll have a better grounding and see more familiar faces. Explore the resources that are available. All the libraries offer something unique. Tap into the other students and go to office hours. The professors are there to help you. They're passionate, knowledgeable and dedicated. And often times no one else goes to their office hours. If you can, live on campus. A lot of students commute and you miss some of the culture. Go to football games. They're a great way to integrate into the school. Go Huskies!
I was in Air Force ROTC and needed a degree to go to pilot training. The UW ROTC program was one of the best in the nation at that time. I was very happy with the UW professors and facilities.
I went to UW Seattle and am happy with my decision. The school provides a lot of depth in terms of course offerings and degree options. I shifted majors several times before settling on a double in Business and Japanese. Overall, the professors and TAs were great, but instruction does suffer at the more general-level classes. Also, I didn't start hitting small class sizes until my 3rd year. My classes ranged from 200 students to as low as a dozen. My coursework was challenging, but enjoyable. I felt I learned a lot and have been able to put some of it to use in multiple work settings. I even did a study abroad program for a year, which I felt was very life-changing (it also helped me meet my wife!). UW is also a good school for once you're outside of the classroom. I met many friends, joined several student clubs, and even cheered on the Huskies at different sporting events; the school has a beautiful campus and it's located in an interesting part of the city. Overall, I think any college experience depends on how the student uses the resources at their disposal, and UW has plenty of resources. Utilize them, and you'll be rewarded with great college memories.
