MEETING LOCATION

www.washington.edu

Surrounded by sparkling blue waters and nestled between the jagged Olympic Mountains to the West and the volcanic peaks of the Cascade Range to the east, Seattle beckons with all the magic of the Pacific Northwest. The Emerald City offers a wonderful variety of adventures including watersports, mountain hiking or bicycling or the more tame pursuits of golfing, museums and walks. There is no better time to visit than in June, when long summer evenings enhance the natural beauty of the city. For our Night Out, Summer School attendees will taste very briefly the unique culture of Tillicum Village, where Native American Indian culture is showcased in a magnificent setting on Blake Island.

The University of Washington is conveniently located about three miles north of downtown Seattle, on the northern shore of Lake Washington. The summer school lectures will be held in the Auditorium of the HUB (Student Union Building) which has a capacity for 470 people, and is just a seven minute walk from the northern lakeside residences.

WEATHER AND WARDROBE

Late June weather in Seattle is moderate, ranging from 60-70 degrees. Casual layered clothing is recommended (T-shirt, sweat-shirt or fleecy, rainjacket) to cover all the possible activities (boating at night could be cool) and to allow maximum flexibility. With an average monthly precipitation of only 1.4 inches for June, rain usually consists of passing showers or a gentle mist. An umbrella may be advisable for the short walk to the lecture theater.
