I love UW. I really enjoy and promote Greek life as well as attending sporting events, playing intramural sports, and getting involved. I also love the school's location and campus. We are one of the few campuses that you can get to football games by boat. We are so lucky to be on the lake and so close to the ocean with gorgeous views of the mountains from campus.
Graduate school is very small and personal where the professors know you by first name and spend quality time in teaching and guiding you. The academic standards are high and well regarded across the nation. One can be proud to have a degree from this school.
