    The University of Washington Campus

    Rainier Vista at the UW Campus

    The University of Washington was founded in 1861 and has more than 40,000 students.

    The University of Washington Campus is large and beautiful. It is filed with huge lawns, lovely trees and scenic views of Seattle. I recommend taking a bike tour of the campus, because it is so big. And remember, locals call it "U Dub."

    University Village, located just outside campus is a great shopping area. There is a large QFC (grocery store) here, as well as trendy clothing and home stores.

    Be sure to check out Ranier Vista on campus, a central plaza with a fountain that looks out onto spectacular Mt. Ranier.

    Another great sight is Husky Stadium, where UW's football team plays. This is a breathtaking stadium, with amazing views of the lake. If you can see a football game here, you won't soon forget it!

    Enjoy Spring baseball at the UW

    The Pitch

    In spring a young man's mind turns to baseball. In Seattle there are the Mariners, a major league team playing in a big ballpark where the fans sit far from the action. Once we sat in the upper deck and watched a home run hit and the ball never rose above our eye level. The UW has the Huskies, a college team where you sit close, close enough that baseball is an auditory sensation as ell as a visual one. And it's a lot cheaper too.
