Question by ~Knut~Is~Cute~: Relocating: Chicago to Seattle? University of Washington?
I’ve lived in Chicago my entire life, and am now a rising high school senior. I’ve been encouraged to check out the Univerisity of Washington- Seattle, and I’m wondering about the school itself and the city. What can I expect if I make the transition? I’m specifically wondering about how the costs of living, job markets (I’m going to work towards a BSN), and overall cultures of the city compare. (any info on the music scenes?) thanks!

UW is awesome! Great school, great teachers and nice people. Seattle is amazing. I’m 17 and plan on going to UW as well and I know many people there, have lived here my whole life. We do a lot of outdoors things like kayaking, hiking, biking, and anything on the water. Nightlife is good and the soccer, baseball, football and hockey games are always a blast. Cost of living downtown is very expensive….BUT there are tons of college students who buy a large house and room up to 6 people and you can rent a room for a couple hundred a month. Oh and there is many job openings in Seattle and more up North (Stay away from Tacoma no jobs). As for music scene it’s really good too. Lots of concerts and stuff going on at Everett Event Center and it’s so much fun to take a trip to the Gorge for outdoor concerts and camping then head down to the river. Also of course live entertainment in certain places of the city. Good luck 🙂
