Why UW? The diversity of people, ideas, and opportunities available to students is amazing. I graduated wishing I had more time to take advantage of all the classes, clubs, and people. The size of the UW can be intimidating at first, but it also means you will never be bored. I met the people who became my best friends in the first weeks at UW, but I was able to meet amazing people throughout my four years as an undergraduate. I paddled to First Nations reserves as part of Canoe Journeys, traveled to Powwows in Montana, learned what Hula really is, ate Persian food for the first time, went on ethno-botany field trips in Eastern Washington… My time at UW taught me the world is vast and to be a part of it.
