University of Washington Campus Facts
Founded in 1861, University of Washington is one of the oldest public universities on the West Coast. UW is known for its discoveries made by students. These include bubblegum, vinyl, synthetic rubber, the color TV and more. Alumni such as Beverly Cleary, Chuck Close, and Bonnie Dunbar have all left a legacy on UW that continues to motivate its students.
In 1970, the UW campus and students organized an event called “World’s First Trash-in” which led to Seattle becoming a world leader in recycling. Students brought trash from home and separated it into glass, metal, paper, and plastic in an effort to educate and innovate the way we handle waste. The 643 acre campus in Seattle also reaches around the world to more than 50 locations in more than 10 countries.
