Founded in 1861, University of Washington in Seattle is one of the oldest universities on the West Coast. I was quite impressed when I walked around the campus a year ago with my friend who was taking her PhD here.
I couldn't remember the names of the buildings I visited here--the school campus was huge! It was my first visit to an American university and it was a great experience to be in the middle of a vibrant intellectual community. I wanted to be where former students who have gone to the moon walked. Where brilliant minds mapped the human genome, broken the sound barrier, created vaccines.
