Even though outsiders don’t often think of Seattle as a college town, the University of Washington’s shadow looms large. As long as packs of 18-to-22-year-olds don’t spook you, the University District has a lot to offer. In addition to all the attractions the campus brings (speakers, sports, cherry blossoms), the surrounding neighborhood stays busy with engaging entertainment, high-end shopping (see: University Village) and loads of international food options (many of which cater to UW’s student population).
Meet Seth Sommerfeld
Seth has lived in Seattle since 2011. He was born and raised in Billings, Mont., with collegiate pit stops in Spokane, Wash., and Syracuse (go Zags, though) along the way. You can probably run into him at a concert.
