1 College Senior

Overall Experience: If I could do it all over again, there is absolutely no way that I would choose the University of Washington - Bothell. Before coming here, I was told of how convenient it was to get to the main campus and surrounding areas of Bothell, it is not a commuter campus because there is on-campus housing that has an excellent community, etc. I am currently confused at why they ever even said the things that they did. It is strictly a commuter campus as even most of the students who live on campus go home almost every weekend and the majority of students come for classes then go home afterwards so there is no sense of community whatsoever. It has been beyond difficult to go north of Bothell as the buses do not have decent routes anywhere north. As for getting to Seattle, that is also a pain in the butt. I was told that there was tons of stuff that I could do at UW-Seattle campus but I have found nothing but ran into difficulties. I also had no idea how far left many of the people here are and I am beyond sick of people shoving their beliefs about politics down my throat and not being accepting that I believe otherwise whatsoever (that may just be my experience because I worked on campus and many of the strong-willed people work on campus as well). Plus, there is no food on campus except for two cafes which I have only bought coffee there about 5 times, two of which they burned my coffee. I bought a salad once; it was rotten. There is also a Subway that most students get beyond sick of because that's basically the only choice for food. Other than that, good luck finding anything without having to do a 30+ minute trek into town. There are no sports, just a few intramural teams that play soccer at night. There aren't many activities either. They occasionally have events like "Pokemon battle" and small things that don't strike interest in everyone.... which is really funny with how much of an "inclusive" campus they try to be. I have so much more to say.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love how every one of my professors knows not only my name but they know stuff about me. I also love the small class sizes, it makes it easier to engage in class

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I enjoy the access to the main campus but professors seem like the leftover bunch who are not as committed to the learning experience of the student.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The school is great I'm just dealing with my own issues right now which is making it hard. But overall University of Washington Bothell is the best.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I have friends living in the campus housing and they are not very happy with the amenities.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Limited dining options on campus, however there is a different food truck every day of the week on a regular schedule.

2 College Junior

Party Scene: No parties, however there are a few late night dances

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: We tend to go off-campus to dine. Pen Thai and Sushi Zone are popular favorites

4 College Junior

Administration: It is a commuter campus, so there isn't much that administration can do. However, they have had to kick people out of a few dances for being drunk or high on things other than weed.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Fairly average, nothing seriously lacking but nothing outstanding either.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: There are a couple of running and biking trails, and a few parks, but if you're looking for the "college experience", look elsewhere. This campus is for students looking for a quiet environment to focus on school.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The small campus means small class sizes, so the classes are more personal and engaging. All of my professors know me by name and have ample time to help me through any curricular struggles. The Quantitative Skills Center is also always available and usually very helpful in studying and solving difficult homework problems.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The University of Washington Bothell is a small campus in a sleepy town, so crime is very small if non-existent. However, campus security is still very present and the local police department and fire departments are mere blocks away, so the campus is very safe.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The students here are in a small town university, so they're not attending for the merit of attending a big party school, however they're still in the University of Washington so they're also obviously dedicated to their education.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Not much available, and rent is expensive for being a small town, but the apartments are nice and well kept

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Lots of campus security. Lots of lighting in lots and parking garages. Campus security responds quickly, will even walk you to your car.

Scholarships: Fill out your FAFSA completely and accurately. Be thorough. If you keep your grades up pretty high, you'll receive additional merit scholarships later on and can reduce loans, if needed. Talking to Financial Aid advisors was quick and easy--they even recommended I just email them in the future to save myself a trip.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Not a lot of publicity for non-club students to use or access the facilities. The (small) gym is free with your Husky Card though.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Las Margaritas, Cafe Ladro, Ranch Drive-In. Relatively inexpensive, pretty good food, close to campus. No student discount that I've seen. :(

3 College Junior

Local Area: Small town getting bigger. Downtown Bothell has some cafes, antique shops, bakery, burger joint, etc. Walk on the Burke-Gilman trail. Close to the freeway to drive to bigger cities. Bothell is nice to live in, but not very exciting for young adults or teens.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Bothell has some decent spots, not in walking distance

Off-Campus Housing: It just depends on your preference it comes with it's perks like more freedom less supervision but then you have to pay for parking at the school and transportation back and forth.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: In Bothell we only have intramural sports however we are very supportive of our main campus Varsity team.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: We don't have an open party scene in Bothell.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: We don't have a Greek life at the University of Washington in Bothell I like that a lot because it helps me to focus on school more than be distracted by Greek Life.
