Hi, my name is Matthew Marone, and I want to say welcome to the University of Washington Bothell! I am sure you will love it here! I transferred here last spring from Bellevue College to major in Business, and minor in Computer Software Systems. I transferred as a junior, and now I am a senior. My usual hobbies consist of snowboarding, wakeboarding, sailing, dirt biking, golfing, and playing the piano. However, I like to try new things whenever I can. I also like playing pool on campus, studying at coffee shops, and meeting new people. I wasn’t born in Washington, but I moved here when I was five, and consider it my home. The reason I wanted to come to school here is because the University of Washington is highly respected, and the Bothell campus provides a small campus feel as well as a convenient location for me. In fact, I live within walking distance of campus, and I love it! I was also pleased to find out how helpful everyone is here, and how dedicated the university is to providing a great educational experience. Again, welcome to UWB!
