University of Washington (Seattle)

How many UW students does it take to change a light bulb?

3 - One to use Amazon to purchase the new bulb, one to make the coffee and one to put the grunge records on the turntable.

What says...

The 47,000 students at the University of Washington (UW - "U-Dub" to the locals) have life pretty good. Indeed, with a massive, leafy campus in the midst one of the coolest and most culturally interesting hubs of US society, life would be rewarding and stimulating here even if it weren't one of the best public schools in the country. It's hard not to see the city of Seattle as the overwhelmingly best reason to choose UW as your American college experience - it is after all the home and birthplace of an improbably long list of pillars of the modern America which includes everything from Starbucks to Nirvana.
