Heya guys, Please bare with me while I ask about housing in the seattle area. I just got accepted for the MPH graduate program and I'm planning to attend UW in the fall. I am searching like crazy on craiglist and every single seattle community I can to find housing. However since I am not from the area and I have yet to visit, I have no idea the proximity of any housing or neighborhoods. I heard that capitol hill and university district was some good choices. I'm from a farm, so I know nothing about how cities are laid out. I have a shit car which means that I would like to live semi-close to campus, within walking distance. I can't apply for on campus housing b/c I have a 15lbs. dog who is my world. So here are my questions:
*What neighborhoods are within walking distance from UW campus? (or public health building if that makes a difference) *Which of those neighborhoods are good/bad as in safety wise?
Thank you soooo much. I greatly appreciate your info and help with this. It's hard moving to a new huge city without knowing anything about it.
Anyone know why they didn't send out those "Your Priority 1 Registration Date is blahblahblah" emails this quarter? And my MyUW page's "Important Dates and Deadlines" section only has the last day for winter quarter withdrawal listed – nothing about registration. If not for talking to people in real life (something I try to avoid), I wouldn't've figured it out for quite a while that I should've registered. What's up with that?
I am in desperate need of some help. I'm graduating in June with a Biz degree, and all I've wanted to take at UW is a photography class for an elective...but only Freshmen and Sophomores can sign up. So, I'm asking for help.
If there is someone who is either a Freshman or Sophomore willing to hold a space for me until Period 2 (March 7th) in ART 140 I would be ever so grateful! (That is, if you don't want that class). Photography was a kind of therapy for me back in HS when a tragic incident happened to my family, but for the past few years in order to get to any beginning photography class I needed to take a bunch of drawing classes....and I'm awful at drawing.
I've applied to UW for gradschool, and I was curious as to how far people drive for school. I figure most people probably live on or near campus, but does anyone commute from Everett or the Mt Vernon area? I have family that lives in those two areas that have offered to let me stay with them if I'm accepted, but it seems like one hell of a commute, especially with traffic delays.
