"University of Washington is a huge diverse school with a niche for everyone. With research in nearly every field it gives students the unique opportunity to contribute to the learning of the world as they make the most of their own learning. University of Washington gave me many opportunities as an undergrad and set me up perfectly for my future graduate studies."

"Hard to get a start in because I didn't know what I wanted to do and it is such a big school. Once I found my niche in Sociology, I absolutely loved the program and the faculty."

Degree: Anthropology

"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."

"I had a great experience at the University of Washington. The campus is beautiful, and dorm life is fairly typical of most four-year universities. The introductory classes are fairly large, but upper division courses are smaller and provide more individualized support."

Graduation Year: 2016
"The University of Washington is a big school for a reason. Bigger schools means a lot of opportunities. It also means that you will be challenged and be pushed to your limits. This school not only allows students to freely express themselves but also encourage students to take big risks.The University of Washington doesn't want students to be comfortable because comfort doesn't create successful and risk taking individuals. I'm glad that I went to the University of Washington. I was pushed to explore different interests and careers and I got to travel around the world. If you want a school that provides a lot of unique opportunities, go to the University of Washington."

"Loving every minute  at this school. Professor and advising is awesome, F.A. is amazing, love it's intercity. Don't go in thinking you are going to skate through your classes, you have to study hard, you will get a lot of here. Learning so much can't wait to graduate next year."

Brittany Bender - 1/3/2016
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013
"I was a double major in English Literature and Psychology and I had very different experiences with each program. UW is more known for their achievements in the field of Psychology, and so I had (mostly) very exceptional instructors in my Psychology classes. However, the English department is much smaller and not as well known, and so I had a much more poor experience. Most of my English classes were taught entirely by TA's (even upper level courses), some of whom had never taught before. In regards to financial aid, my family had an extremely difficult time dealing with their primary office. Often we would get transferred to three or four people in one phone call and none of the employees would be able to answer even basic questions about my financial aid package. If you are an out of state student hoping to receive in state tuition, you also have virtually no chance of ever having this approved. It's close to impossible to find information on the website to even see what the requirements are for in state tuition, and the university in general makes it extremely difficult to meet these requirements. All in all, my experience with the University of Washington was very hit and miss."
