University of Washington

Founded in November 1861, just 10 years after the creation of Washington Territory, the prestigious UW now occupies 693 hilly acres that were originally cleared for the festival grounds of Seattle’s Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition in 1909. Supporting a 40,000-member student body that’s as eclectic as the architectural mix on campus, the institution has garnered a reputation internationally for its undergraduate and postgraduate curriculums in biomedical research, ethnomusicology, computer science, and literature. Wide open quads, cherry blossoms in spring, and landscaping provides a relaxing counterpoint to the constant buzz of advanced learning.
