UW has literally everything anyone could need. It's in the middle of one of the coolest cities in the world, so everything is close by. Additionally, the campus is gorgeous, making it so easy to be happy here everyday walking to class. Classes are hard here, but really as hard as you want them to be. Anyone can do average, but you'll really do as well as you want to. Campus life is very positive, everyone is very happy here, socializing isn't difficult whatsoever, and partying after school work is done is one of the best ways to have a good time, meet new people, and relax! Sports are awesome, the professors are very engaging and enthusiastic, and it's so easy to fall in love with the school. UDub has it all!

So far so good! I currently renting a house with a couple of seniors who also attend UW and every single one of us has had quite the satisfying experience. The professors I've had has been very helpful in helping me learn the material as well as being engaging during lectures. I haven't been to very many football games but as the scoreboard shows, UW's football team, as well as many other sports, has been top notch. UW's basically centered nicely in Seattle in a way where there are a variety of places to do and to eat, so you'll never be bored!

Coming from a previously over-involved High School Cheerleader who was the President of multiple clubs and Organizations, the opportunities for becoming involved in the University of Washington, I would have to say are INCREDIBLE. It is truly a dream - for the first few months, it was non-stop Husky Spirit immersion. I went to my first basketball games with one of my flatmates and it was super - we jumped up every 10 seconds - I'm sure we burnt just as many calories as the players on the court. Everyone is always super jazzed and really spirited - which is nice as a past-ASB-superfan-kid. Beyond the bleachers, the athletics facility: the IMA (Intramural Activities Center), is the most beautiful facility (perhaps in existence). This gymbuff's heaven has 3 floors of possibility including a climbing wall, swimming pools, basketball court, indoor track, multiple weight rooms, and numerous studios for a seemingly endless list of classes! I'm planning on enrolling in a couple within the new year (yoga/pilates, kickboxing, martial arts, and maybe some form of dance). Athletics at my school is honestly quite great and it has played a great part of my personal college experience.
