The final stop of my Seattle tour was a visit to the University of Washington.
This school is part of the Pac 12 Conference and is home to the Washington Huskies. This was also one of my top sites to visit because I’ve never seen it during my last two visits and now I finally had a chance!
The tour began with stops at Husky Stadium and Edmundson Pavilion, which are the sites for football and basketball, complete with a gorgeous sunrise over Mt. Rainier.
Then, it was onto the main campus itself, with a stop at the Drumheller Fountain while going through the Rainer Vista. This was the main entrance to the campus and it was the most picturesque site, especially facing toward Mt. Rainier at sunrise.
Then, it was onto touring the different halls around the campus, including the Smith Hall, named after me. Out of all the different classes they offered, my favorite was art because I could see myself taking any one of them and showing off my talents to everyone on campus! Maybe one of my projects would be something around the university or a landscape in Washington State.
Of course, no trip on campus would be complete without visiting a library, so the Suazzllo Library was the one I wanted to see because of the large reading room to study or read books, and that room reminded me of a colonial library. There was also a room named after me as well like the Smith Hall, so I guess you can say I found three Smith’s in Seattle!
Out of all the places on campus I saw, my favorite area was definitely the Husky Union Building (“HUB”) because it’s one of the best places to hang out when students aren’t in class.
This building had everything from a book store, a food court, and a Game Center with bowling, billiards, video games, foosball, and board games. When I visited the University of Maryland, their game room was closed.
However, this one was open and I had to try it out for myself. So, I played a couple rounds of pool and a did a little bowling. Even though I haven’t done it in a while, it was definitely worth the experience!
If I was in Seattle, I would definitely attend this campus and be part of the Washington Huskies while taking my favorite classes, living in a fraternity group or dorm room, hanging out at the Game Center with friends, and of course watch a live football or basketball game.
Overall, this tour of Seattle was definitely better than last year’s because I got a chance to see even more places and the weather was absolutely perfect with lots of sunshine and no rain!
I can’t wait to see where my next destination will take me!
