Subject:Grad School...
Time:8:29 am.
Mood: curious.
So I'm currently a senior at the University of Michigan and have been accepted to UW's School of Public Health (Exposure Science in the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences). I visited a couple weeks ago for an interview and got really good vibes from the program. The faculty I met with were really friendly and the grad students were all very helpful and answered a lot of my questions. So basically I'm sold on the program (and the location) but have a lingering question...

In your opinion, how easy is it to meet new people at UW (especially in graduate programs) as an out-of-state student who will essentially be starting over? I don't know anyone in Seattle and my family still lives in Michigan. I definately want to put in the effort to start a new social network, but I'd like to know your experiences. Because the program I'm entering is so small, I assume it should be easy, but want your feedback. I'm curious about the "culture" of graduate students at the school. I'm into live music and such, but not really being a drinker, I'm not into the bar/club scene. I know that there are a ton of things to do in Seattle and was wondering the most common ways to meet/hang with people.

Sorry for the lengthy post, but I appreciate all of your opinions. Thanks!

Hi, I'm looking for someone to carpool with from Pullman to Seattle either late Sunday or early Monday April 14th.  I'll be happy to split the cost.  Thanks in advance.
