Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 1986

I loved the UW campus. It is beautiful. The greenery, fountains, architecture and amazing. The education, however, was spotty. I had some really great instructors and some absentee instructors who were much more interested in their own careers and research than teaching students. Some of my classes had several hundred students in them and were taught by T.A.s from other countries with significant pronunciation issues. Overall it was a good experience, but not great. I'm glad I did the first two years at a community college where the focus is clearly on teaching and learning and the classes are much smaller.

Degree: Linguistics of ASL and Other Sign Languages
Graduation Year: 2014

There's no arguing that the University of Washington's Seattle campus is one of the best value institutions in the United States. Located in the heart of Seattle, and with an extensive range of programs, beautiful campus, and diverse student population, this school is one of the most dynamic and exciting places to study. As a student studying Linguistics at UW, I was able to delve deeper and think critically about my studies with a wide range of classes available. Further, the extracurricular opportunities available on campus are incredibly valuable for those seeking real-world experience and service. I was able to pursue many of my own personal interests (activism, mentorship, and language exchange, to name a few) in addition to receiving a world-class education. I would definitely recommend UW to anyone seeking to grow on an academic, professional, and personal level. This school is amazing and I am incredibly grateful that I was able to attend here.

Degree: Geography
Graduation Year: 2008

The University of Washington was a wonderful place to get my education and the Geography program is a top rated program nationally. Some of the best Geography PHd's and grad students provided an exceptional level of knowledge and insight. Geography was not my first degree choice, but in the end I was pleased that it's where I completed my degree.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 1992

Tell us about your college experience.

It was a perfect fit for me. It's location to Seattle is great and the Greek system is wonderful.

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

I would choose the same degree because I loved all my classes which made it easy for me to get good grades and graduate on time.

What advice can you offer other students?

Pick a coarse of study that truly interests you and your classes will seem easy. Don't pick a school based on what friends are going there because your friends change.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

Tell us about your college experience.

College was a good fit but I was not on campus any extra time, just for the classes. I have two kids and live 40 minutes away so I was not a part of the night life at the college.

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

Yes, I loved the program I did. I enjoy learning about nature which is what my program did. I'm currently working on my masters so I can be a middle school science teacher.

What advice can you offer other students?

Pick a topic that interests you, you'll find a way to make a living after college. It's important to do what you enjoy.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 1993

Liberal arts degrees are a hard-sell these days, but I value mine. It opened my eyes to things I never would have learned on my own - new ways of thinking and understanding. Learning an entirely different system of meaning and a different culture helped me directly (by preparing me to react in different ways to that culture when immersed in it after graduation) and indirectly, by giving me a toolset I've used in my primary profession (marketing).

A liberal arts degree alone, however, has to be complemented with resourcefulness and the ability to learn practical skills in the real world.

I had wonderful professors, the most influential of whom is still teaching in the program. I was in the honors program and had great support from the advising team throughout my time in school. I didn't use financial aid or job placement, so can't comment on either.
