America's Most Beautiful College Campuses
University of Washington/University Photography
University of Washington: Seattle
The eye-catching Collegiate Gothic Suzzallo Library at UW’s Seattle campus has 35-foot-high stained-glass windows and elaborately gilded vaulted ceilings that soar 65 feet in the air. But come spring, the Quad’s 30 Yoshino cherry trees steal the spotlight with blooms of delicate pink petals set against red-brick buildings (peak cherry blossom season, mid-March to early April).
Photo-op: The Drumheller Fountain for spot-on views of snowcapped Mount Rainier.
To-Do List: Musical acts at the newly renovated Neptune Theatre, which debuted in the University District in 1921. —Ratha Tep
