Life at the UW
The University of Washington provides a wonderful environment for scholarship, and the City of Seattle provides an excellent environment for a PhD student. The area supports a wide variety of arts and cultural organizations as well as pretty much any type of recreational activity you can imagine (see the Official Guide to Seattle). An outdoor lifestyle is possible year-round and there are numerous parks and vacation destinations only a short drive from the city.
