WHAT I LIKED

The UW is diverse if you know what to look for. Upper-level profs tend to be white and a lot of people have not deconstructed race in their heads. George Washington needs to be toppled.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The on-campus food is ridiculously expensive. So is everything here. The bus system works but not as well as they sell it.

WHAT I LIKED

UW Seattle has a beautiful campus. The people are nice and there are lots of clubs that can help with finding long-lasting friendships.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The only thing I have an issue with UW is you have to apply for your major unless you're directly admitted. This can be stressful for many and can cause issues.

WHAT I LIKED

The classes I've taken at UW so far have been engaging and informative. There are lots of opportunities to get involved on campus, both with RSOs and in research. In addition, the surrounding area is gorgeous.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Some of the introductory level courses can be quite challenging weed out courses.
