I would urge prospective undergraduates to be wary of UW's promotional literature. Although UW claims that classes are small and undergraduates are a priority, my experience proved otherwise. Classes were enormous, professors largely dismissed undergraduates, and it was difficult to find a niche at the school. That said, UW is undeniably inexpensive -- even for out-of-state students -- and the new Hathaway scholarships should make the school even more reasonable. Choose UW for its (cheap) price, not for the education.
When P.T. Barnum donated money to Tufts University, he did so on the condition that the school's mascot be named after his beloved elephant. The Tufts University mascot has been the "Jumbos" ever since.
