Degree: Communication and Media Studies, Other
Graduation Year: 2017

The University of Washington overall is a great school with an amazing college life experience. There are endless opportunities for success in academics, student life, and career planning. It's a beautiful campus to be on, especially during the spring with the full bloom of the Cherry Blossom trees. The courses at UW can range from 25 to over 300 students in the class and professors seem to be more focused on their personal research than teaching. Majors are also very competitive at the university and the university sets very high expectations for students compared to other schools. Now that I have finally graduated I don't really feel like my degree will lead me to a promising career. It's been difficult finding jobs in Seattle's competitive market. But UW is really great for those pursuing degrees in engineering, science, information technology, business, and medicine.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2013

At the University of Washington, Seattle I tried to fully embrace opportunities through extra curricular activities. I tried to find groups that help others and gave back to the community. My sophomore year I found Dream Project, a resource for underrepresented high school students who are applying to college and/or figuring out their next steps after high school. Once a week for two years I volunteered at Foster High School and mentored high school seniors in the college application process. This was a very fulfilling and meaningful opportunity I was able to find at the University of Washington. It not only have my a deeper insight to career paths I could be interested in but it also built a strong community on campus that I felt enhanced my experience and education 10 times more than if I hadn't been a part of it. This and so many other opportunities on campus make the University of Washington an enriching experience for every type of interest from education to aerospace engineering.

The Communication department is a hidden gem at the University of Washington. The instructors provide relevant insight into the communication systems that impact our realities today and combine their extensive research and experience with open minds to work with students and develop the social solutions of tomorrow.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 1988

The University of Washington had a wonderful School of Communications that allowed me to channel my interest in design, advertising, copy writing, marketing and art direction into an exciting career. Today I own my own business and make a great living, and I owe a ton of my success to the program, ideas, work ethic and instruction I received at the UW. Campus life is rich and diverse, and it's truly one of the most beautiful settings in the country as well. I would recommend this school to likeminded students. The only drawback to my education was that I felt the school did not do enough to help grads get placed out in the community after graduation (portfolio prep, internships, etc.). This certainly may have changed over the years, as the workforce has grown more competitive. It was a while back when I attended.
