“Enjoyed quick drive-through”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

We were just doing a drive-by for our 16 year old son, but recommend it for those interested in attending. It's kind of hidden from the outside, but once on the campus, it's a very beautiful and impressive campus.

“Enjoy the beautiful architecture and gardens”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

We strolled through the campus with visitors from abroad, and enjoyed seeing the beautiful architecture of the older buildings, especially Suzallo Library, and the walk down to Rainier Vista with the rose garden and the fountain. Also the "quad" is worth a visit, with the cherry trees and the surrounding buildings.

“A GREAT CAMPUS TO VISIT”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

This is a great campus to visit... And it was really good to experience while in Seattle. The little college town, was nice. We ate lunch at a local Vietnamese restaurant. Everyone was friendly.

“Large, sprawling, and various”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Surely worth a look with its open-stack library and gracious main room. The Henry Museum is on its campus, as well as the Burke.

“Bow Down to Washington”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Five years of education at this location cannot give anyone enough time to experience all that is to be seen.

Top Destinations
1) Drumheller Fountain and Rainier Vista - sunny days in spring are made EPIC with a view of the fountain and Mt. Rainier in the background.
2) Husky Stadium - the greatest venue in college football. BEAUTIFUL STADIUM. Views are rivaled by nothing. Throw in the Husky Marching Band, Husky Football, "Sailgating", and all that you can get from a DAWG SATURDAY.
3) Cherry Blossoms in the Quad - It gets crazy full of tourists, students, randoms, etc but if you can get a nice view/picture without thousands of people walking around - you have truly scored.
4) Campus Buildings - The brick architecture is amazing. Large libraries, beautiful views and a college campus aura makes it a magical place, unless you went to WSU.
