The UW connection
The University of Washington is comprised of three campuses: the 156-year-old Seattle campus, and the Tacoma and Bothell campuses, both founded in 1990. Each campus offers many educational qualities — a vibrant setting; top-drawer faculty known for their teaching ability; a rigorous, interdisciplinary curriculum; and high standards of social responsibility.
