The campus at the University of Washington is well worth a visit if you happen to be in the U-District. On clear days you have beautiful views of the lake and the mountains. It's also great being able to access the campus via Light Rail.

WSU is a better option if you don't want to end up killing yourself. Great place to develop anxiety issues and seasonal depression tho.

Took my niece here on a college visit. Campus is really pretty with a nice mix of old and new buildings. The old buildings are remodeled nicely. I'm sure the campus is beautiful in the springtime with all the cherry blossoms.

The U of W sits on the edge of Lake Union. The grounds and buildings are lovely. The Burke Museum always has an interesting and often unique exhibit and doesn't take too much time. In spring the grounds are especially lovely.
