“UW Bothell campus is like a gold mine. The student population is very diverse and tends to have a lot of work experience to complement their education. The small, more intimate environment at UW Bothell allows us to really concentrate our recruiting efforts and better connect with the students.” – Jeff Hanley, Boeing
