- About UW
Choose your floor! UW offers First-Year Interest Groups and Living Learning Communities where you have a chance to share classes with your neighbors. Floor communities include fun activities that are designed with your interest in mind, and some floors with required courses offer a chance to get to know a professor who sponsors the floor.
Form long-lasting friendships and gain study skills from ready-made study groups of like-minded peers. Instead of making your way through those first research papers, final exams, and study sessions alone, you'll be part of a community of learners, yet you'll maintain the flexibility to be independent, too.
By joining a floor with required coursework, you are guaranteed a spot in your courses before they fill up. Some courses fill quickly, but students on FIG floors need not worry about not getting the classes they wanted.
