What our students say:

Student Photo
I had always dreamed of being a Husky, and the University of Washington Bothell made it possible for me. UW Bothell is now my home away from home. I spend so much time here - either with friends, studying, or working on campus. I can't imagine attending college anywhere else and having such a strong support network. As a first-generation student, it was important for me to select an institution where the faculty and staff are committed to my overall growth and development." Marlene Manzo, Class of 2014
