University of Washington

Founded in 1861, the University of Washington (or “U-Dub,” as it’s known locally) is one of the top research universities in the nation. The Seattle campus features historic buildings (the stunning gothic Suzzallo library is always a favorite), several museums (natural history at the Burke; contemporary art at the Henry), and the famous cherry trees that bloom every spring on the quad. The university has a strong athletics program, so try to catch a basketball or football game.
