I knew when I interviewed at the University of Washington that this was the place I wanted to spend my academic career.  Aside from top-notch research, the University of Washington has, what I consider to be the most beautiful campus in the country (keep in mind I have worked at UCSB and Princeton)!  On a clear day in the spring, when the cherry blossoms are blooming  and you can see Mount Rainier, the campus feels as though it is located on another planet.  The people in Seattle are also amazingly friendly.  The coffee is not bad either
