Life in class

Your teachers are highly experienced and incorporate a variety of methods to facilitate your success in and out of the classroom.

Some instructors will take you into the wetlands on campus for an ecology experiment, others will lecture or use theater games. Still others will work with you on developing skills of entrepreneurship, writing a poem, reading a difficult text, solving a quadratic equation, or creating digital art.

Take advantage of the enormous resource that is our faculty. Go by and talk with your instructors during office hours or while they are drinking coffee in the Commons. They are here to assist you in any way they can and, together with you, to build a learning community for the information-age.

UW Bothell is proud of its outstanding and innovative faculty. As a first year student, you will enjoy small classes, be known by name, and have many opportunities to work with your instructors not only in class, but also outside the classroom on projects of mutual interest. All faculty are active researchers as well as superb teachers. Get to know them. They are here to help you succeed!
