3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I cannot make an objective review just because I have not yet attended classes at my school, although many people I know have over the years. The thing that I have noticed as a major complaint of UW students is that before you are accepted to your major you receive a quality of education that is hardly worth paying for. This is something that I think definitely needs to change but it won't until the university decides to be fiscally and ethically responsible.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: All the people that I know of are big fans of the sports play at this school and school spirit is very high.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: As with any type of school, if your the type of student that is open and friendly to other. It will be the best four years of you life. So spend some time on interacting with a lot of people.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the class sizes because we get so much attention from the professors!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The staff members really care about finding students opportunitis during and after college.

Health & Safety: Sometimes I fear that my moped won't be there when I get back just because of Tacoma's reputation, but I feel safe other than that.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are outrageously small looking and way too expensive.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My first year at UW Tacoma has been exciting and totally not what I expected college to be like. My professor's make it fun and interesting to learn. I get to explore so many topics with the degree I'm working towards and I know I can go to my professor's any time. The small classrooms and student-friendly campus is the best part.

Overall Experience: I love everything about UWT! our class sizes are small enough to be able to interact directly with the professor, but big enough to have many different opinions with each student. They offer many classes, but sometimes the classes overlap so you would have to pick one or the other. However, I'm sure that happens at many different schools. I love the professors, they're interesting and smart. They truly are interested in how the students are doing and will always check up on us if something goes awry.

Overall Experience: UWT trained teachers are some of the most sought after teachers around! We all declare a specialty, ELL or SpEd. I've been told from students that have done the Masters program here that no student goes into spring quarter without a full time offer at a school! It's pretty exciting to know that I'll have a job guaranteed. If not, I know it will be easy to find one with the skills and reputation of UWT.

Health & Safety: No matter what you're always safe on campus. If you don't feel safe, you can always call campus security and they will walk you or take you wherever you need to go. There is also the emergency posts all around campus just incase.

Overall Experience: I love UWT! I love how every professor interacts with us separately, we're not a number in a 500 person lecture. I've formed meaningful relationships with many of my professors and I know that all of them would be willing to write me any kind of letter of recommendation based on knowing me personally and knowing my work personally. UWT does not use TA's, which I love! We get to have actual professors as well as lecturers who are trained in their fields and are so knowledgeable.

Athletics: While UWT does not exactly have a sports team, the morale is felt from the UW Seattle campus. It's fun to be apart of an organization with such high ranking in sports! Our YMCA is brand new and it's perfect for what I need it for.

Athletics: The University of Washington Tacoma just finished building a new YMCA for all students. Granted the fact that the membership fee adds on top of the tuition, It is still an amazing perk for each student as they are blessed the opportunity to utilize all the brand new programs and equipment. I've gone there almost everyday since it was built(1 year ago). Varsity sports aren't as big of a deal at UWT because all the teams perform at the UW Seattle campus. Intramurals are much more popular because UWT is so small the people love to have fun. The University of Washington Tacoma provides students with plenty of ways to maintain healthy physical habits. I love it here!

Overall Experience: The University of Washington Tacoma is well know for their advancements in the technology field. You can say it is a 'computer science' focused University. This creates a technology friendly environment within the campus. It is right on the edge of downtown Tacoma, yet the University has still managed to create a friendly aroma of learning. Every time I walk on campus it influences me to read a book. This University has gone above and beyond the agenda of keeping incoming students involved many different areas of the school. Diverse is a perfect description of the curriculum and the people who attend the University.

Overall Experience: Its a good school, suits my needs and i love it!!
