    There is an excellent pizzeria that does daily slices for $2.50. Throughout the year, UWT offers discounts on many activities around the Sound (movies, concerts, comedy shows, etc.) During the holiday season, UWT offers discount tickets for Zoolights. Students are also given free admission into a few of the downtown museums.

    While at UW I got all I needed money wise, especially from the professors. It was a blessing to be taught by such exquisite professors instead of TAs. No university is going to be 100% cheap, but for what I paid for my education, I believe that it was a win-win relationship.

    As we all know, students are finding it very challenging to afford college and those who are able to attend are finishing college with an outrageous amount of debt. One of the deciding factors for me as to where to attend college was tuition. I chose UW - Tacoma because tuition for Washington State residents is currently about $12,000 per year, so $4,000 per quarter. The affordability of UW - Tacoma combined with degree's such as Nursing, Social Welfare, Accounting, Computer Science, Criminal Justice, and Psychology had me sold. Not only is it one of the most affordable schools in Washington State, but it has an awesome financial aid office who will do the best they can to help you financially. I have been extremely impressed at how quick and easy it is to meet with a financial aid employee when needed.

    It costs about the same as the Seattle campus, but I think it's worth it for the sake of smaller class sizes.
