By entering UW later, transfer students discover camaraderie, competition and their own path | KNKX

Each year, the UW accepts thousands of transfer students, spread across its three campuses in Seattle, Tacoma and Bothell. Many previously studied at community colleges, in Washington and beyond. These students didn’t follow the well-known route to university that starts in high school. Most choose to pursue their education in a different way, joining college at a later stage into their educational journey. Sylvie Shiosaki, assistant director of multicultural outreach and recruitment at the UW, and UW students Edward Kim, Madison Collins and Ben Fetters, are quoted.
