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.

4 College Sophomore

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!

5 College Sophomore

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.

4 College Junior

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

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: One of the greatest things about University of Washington Tacoma is the downtown urban vibe. It feels as if you are in a large city, but still has the neighborhood feel. The culturally diverse student body is what makes this campus unique.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far my time at UWT has been pretty good. I enjoy the small class sizes, it allows for a lot of interaction with students and professors, making it easier to connect with others and ask for help when needed. I particularly like how the campus is small as well, I can get to classes fast and all buildings are just a small walking distance away. I like how the campus is in the middle of downtown Tacoma and close to a lot of food places, all within walking distance. However, the school is still developing and lacks in course offerings and majors. The majors isn't an issue for me, they offer the one I'll be pursing. But I'd like to see a larger range of course offerings for my major and more interesting electives.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have enjoyed my experiences with school so far. Transitioning from community college was easy enough. The advisers are very helpful and available. Class sizes are small and it is easy to get involved in different things on campus. Also, the area is not as expensive as some other universities in the state, although parking can be a pain at times.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This satellite University is perfect for me. It's not far from home, the classes are fantastically small, professors want to know you, and there are plenty of things to get involved into without being completely committed all the time to being on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far my experience has overall been great. It's quite hard to make friends, and the tuition really hurts to pay, but I have not had one bad professor. The campus is close to home and I can save money by living at home. The parking options aren't the best, but that's to be expected when being in an older city. The education and small classroom sizes more than make up for the small "issues" though. Not to mention the new student Y center is pretty nice.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have only been there a year but my school is very nice. The campus is close to home and in a convenient location. There are plenty of things to do around campus as well as plenty of places to study at around campus.
