The original Territorial University building was torn down in 1908 and its former site currently houses the Fairmont Olympic Hotel. The sole surviving remnants of UW's first building are four 24-foot (7.3 m), white, hand-fluted cedar, Ionic columns. They were salvaged by Edmond S. Meany—one of the University's first graduates and the former head of the history department. Meany and his colleague, Dean Herbert T.

            As we move further into fall, it brings back memories of walking the beautiful tree-lined paths at the University of Washington. I loved going to classes there - great educators and friendly students. I couldn't have asked for me.

            There are so many things: from the diversity, to the instructors, to the organizations and learning opportunities. UW has it all. I loved my time at UW and miss it tremendously. You never realize how great things are until they're over. I hope to join UW again for my Residency after I graduate with my M.D.
