Hello everyone

I'm sitting here in Vancouver, WA and I've been going to the Art Institute of Portland for a while. I've decided it's overpriced and not really impressive, so I'm going to have an associate's degree soon and I am seeking a new school. After a lot of thought, UW seems to be the best and most practical choice for me.

So, I just have some questions...Is anyone in the Art department? How good is it? What sort of stuff do you have access to(studios, darkroom, computers)? How about he philosophy classes, for anyone that has taken some?

How is the dorm life? I noticed there is a no-alcohol policy, but is it enforced? I don't really drink, but regulations like that bug me a little. Are people pretty social? I'm sort of introverted, so I need some somewhat social people around me or I will never talk to anyone. I intend to live on campus, though I don't know if it will be in the residence halls or on-campus apartments. Possibly the halls at first.

How is the food in seattle? In portland there is some really good chinese, italian, and thai food that can be had really cheap. I will probably fingure this out when I visit. I will also find out whether downtown seattle is within easy walking & biking distance, which is important to me.

I would also appreciate any thoughts in general that people have.

Hi, I'm thinking of transferring to UW (its narrowed down between UW, WWU, and my current school), but seriously need some help in making the decision. I'm an art history major, and if anyone has any honest comments or opinions at all about the professors, classes, or program in general, please share them. Its so hard to tell from just the literature the school provides. Thank you so incredibly much!

I've noticed that the longer I've been at UW the less inclined I am to take other people's crap. Before moving to Seattle, I had honked my car horn maybe twice in my whole life; now, I honk it at people (and follow it up with a middle finger) on a somewhat weekly basis. I used to let people cut in front of me in lines; now, I give them the sarcastic 'scuse me? I used to move over for bicyclists illegally using the sidewalk; now, I snarl at them if they block my way.

Anyone else seen themselves go through this same transformation over the past few years?
