University of Washington - Tacoma Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (11)
My time at the Tacoma campus of University of Washington was incredible. If you always wanted to go to a big campus with all the flare then UWT might not be for you. However if you prefer a small campus, with a tight knit community the I highly recommend you look into UWT. The campus is extremely inclusive. The quality of education is superb. In bigger campuses, much of the time you never get one-on-one time with your professors whether it be for simple homework help or perhaps something bigger. UWT being a smaller campus with smaller enrollments and class sizes, it is not at all difficult to show up at a instructors office and walk in without appointment or all the hassle. The classes feel more tailored and inclusive. The student body is extremely diverse and if you choose to commute, the drive isn't so bad either.
An AMAZING school!! I had a professor meet me at a Caf by my house on the weekend to help me with my paper! The genuine care, support and intellect these professors have is absolutely heartwarming! THE best investement I had ever made! I was hired at my dream job before the degree was even mailed! They do not discriminate or tolerate any discrimination. A safe campus. Security is always there to walk you to your car if you ever feel unsafe. You have access to every UW campus library AND classroom- meaning you can take a class at all three campuses at no additional cost. Advisors will make the most complicated of situations seem attainable with ease. Best academic/career move I could have made.
The best school I ever attended, hands down. The professors truly go above and beyond for their students. They really do care about your education and provide you with many opportunities aside from classwork (e.g. extracurricular activities, internships, research opportunities, etc.). I personally feel that UWT is not a normal school where you have typical fraternities and on-campus parties. It's a commuter school, meaning all the students drive from all over to attend classes there. The students aren't there to have fun and go to parties, they are there to learn and be the best. As for me, after I graduated and earned my B.S. in IT, I enrolled right after into the Masters in Cybersecurity and Leadership program. Finally, after I finished my master's degree, I got hired at Amazon to work in the Information Security field as a Security Technical Program Manager. As a result, I had a really good experience at UWT so 5/5 for me.
I like UWT which is in a small town but I m earning the name from there. i have more opportunity to connect to professionals down in Tacoma than Seattle campus. I connect with professor well personally since it's a small class setting. Small Campus and nice environment.
It is a privilege to have been a student and now alum of the University of Washington-Tacoma. The University of Washington is a prestigious school with high quality teaching from qualified and caring professors. I was impressed by the rigor of the academic program as well as the caliber of my fellow students in the program. All of the staff, from administrators to the faculty, are all invested in training quality nurses that will be highly skilled in the clinical setting, as well as developing interests into graduate nursing fields. The location of the campus is great, woven neatly into the downtown commercial district of Tacoma. Because of the unconventional nature of this satellite campus, it attracts students from all walks of life which help to diversify the educational environment, adding to the quality of the educational training.
Attending University of Washington-Tacoma (UW) was, hands down, one of the best experiences in my life. The school is more to me that a building where I learned facts; it is the place where my lust for knowledge and my unconditional love of learning were awakened. The most important part of any school is the teachers, and UWs professors are the finest anywhere. I had a diverse course load that included American history, modern philosophy, economics, and a wide array of political systems (and that's not even half of what UW offers), and every one of my professors was amazing! They would work with me after class and on breaks, they would guide me towards extra readings that would further my learning, and they were all passionate about their subject and job. They made me glad to be student under them. Further, the diversity of classes allows for almost any type of major, and the advising staff is extraordinarily helpful, meeting with me many times and giving detailed answers to every question. The courses are challenging and engaging, perfect for developing skills and knowledge one will need in a career. The campus is located in bustling downtown Tacoma, a blend of historic buildings and modern architecture, with stores and restaurants for busy students on all sides. I cannot say enough about UW-Tacoma; I would recommend this university to anyone. Go Huskies!
The University of Washington - Tacoma provides its students with an excellent education with the added benefit of a private school atmosphere where students can get to know their professors personally rather than being 1 out of 400 students; at the more affordable cost of public tuition prices. It's the best of both worlds and I would highly recommend this University. The law and policy bachelors program at UWT helped prepare me for my masters program in International Economic Law.
The Law and Policy program provided a comprehensive curriculum touching on various issues and subjects pertaining to the fields of policy and legislating. The faculty are quite helpful in that each seem to be approachable and frequently accessible. Feedback throughout the quarter was critical to grow and it was provided in each of my courses regularly. The content was challenging and modern. Both seminar format and regular lecture styles were implemented. The interdisciplinary approach is an angle that I felt critical towards comprehension and later recollection of the material post-graduation. Overall, I was satisfied with the degree.
I loved my college experience! The campus is located downtown Tacoma with easy access to public transportation (to basically anywhere). The campus is relatively new and still expanding. Class sizes are small, and the teachers were engaging. I would highly recommend this college! It would be easy to get a part-time job around campus. No car needed. There are plenty of fun places to hang out around campus - the Matress Factory or the UW YMCA. There are also several museums nearby, the water front, and lots of outdoor activities (parks, bike lanes/trails, hiking).
In general, UWT was a rewarding and accessible choice for me. They offered a variety of class schedules to fit my needs and many of the professors were more than willing to assist students to ensure they saw the maximum benefit from their courses. Some teachers however left a lot to be desired and would refuse to teach outside of their prepared slideshow and refused to slow down and explain concepts that many students didn’t understand. I ultimately abandoned my minor because the teachers within that program either took a more passive approach to teaching or didn’t put a high priority on the “one-on-one” small class size teaching style that the Tacoma campus advertised. Overall, I loved this campus and many of their professors, but I would definitely caution new students to review their professors online before taking certain courses.
