What Students Are Saying

3.49 Average Rating
I absolutely love The University of Washington- Bothell Campus! The class sizes are small which allows students to be able to better understand the material. Everything is easy to find and everyone is so helpful!
Elizabeth from Kenmore, WA
UWB is a public university with a private school feel--small class sizes and a warm, tight-knit campus community. Here, there is a heavy focus on interdisciplinary studies, critical thinking, and getting students prepared for life after undergraduate education. In my time here, I have learned so much that I will take with me for the rest of my life.
Avalon from Bothell, WA
The atmospheres of the students and professors are very positive. The school welcomes diversity with a strong, focused passion. Everyone is dedicated to help the students to be successful.
Alan from Tulalip, WA
The teachers actually care for their students, mostly due to the much more intimate class sizes. The staff is always friendly and willing to help. Parking is plentiful and close to campus.
Blaine from Mercer Island, WA
I really enjoy having small class sizes at UW Bothell. It allows me to learn so much better and have a connection with students. I also like that most every student here is so driven to succeed.
Vanessa from Kenmore, WA
Due to the usage of small class sizes ranging from 6-48 students, the University of Washington Bothell provides a higher chance of interaction not only with the professor but also with other students. The better the connection a student has a with a professor the better his or her grade will be since there're more chances for understanding the material to the best of his or her abilities. Apart from being the fastest growing campus in the state of Washington, UWB, offers new and different courses every year, updating things and keeping prospective students interested; with this evidence the UWB clearly deserves a solid A+ as they have everything you need and more, to succeed in life.
Laura from Mukilteo, WA
I never knew I could learn so much!! In the interdisciplinary studies program all the professors have enthusiasm to question the burning questions of society. Students are encouraged to think critically and become global citizens.
Bernadette from Mill Creek, WA
Beautiful campus, caring and accessible faculty, resources available from the entire UW network of campuses. UW Bothell is a big university with a community college feel. Small class sizes make for a better learning environment.
