CAMPUS HIGHLIGHTS GUIDE
Red Square, officially Central Plaza, is a large open square on the Seattle campus of the University of Washington that serves as a hub for two of the University's major axes, connecting the campus's northern Liberal Arts Quadrangle ("The Quad") with the science and engineering buildings found on the lower campus. The plaza is paved with red brick and becomes notoriously slippery during rain.
Built in 1895, Denny Hall is the UW’s oldest building; it was the campus’s first when the University relocated from downtown Seattle to its current location. Originally called the Administration Building, Denny used to be the only building on campus — it was where all the action happened, housing all the labs, classrooms, offices and other University activities. Denny Hall was renovated in 2016 to increase natural lighting in the building and give it modern amenities.
Denny Hall 建於 1895 年，是 UW 最古老的建築。 這是大學從西雅圖市中心遷至現址時的第一個校園。最初被稱為行政大樓，丹尼曾經是校園裡唯一的建築，它是舉辦所有活動的地方，所有的實驗室、教室、辦公室和其他大學活動。 Denny Hall 於 2016 年進行了翻新，以增加建築物的自然採光並為其提供現代化設施。
Formally known as the Liberal Arts Quadrangle, the Quad is one of the most photogenic areas of campus. One of its primary draws is its collection of 30 Yoshino cherry trees, which were rescued from a construction project in 1962. Their stunning pink blooms, which emerge toward the end of March, attract visitors from around the world. Even when the trees have finished blooming, the Quad remains a favorite go-to area to spend time outdoors, as students picnic, play games, read or relax in the sun.
正式稱為藝術四邊形，四邊形是校園最上鏡的區域之一。它的主要吸引力之一是它收集了 30 棵吉野櫻花樹，這些樹是 1962 年從一個建築項目中救出的。它們令人驚嘆的粉紅色花朵在 3 月底出現，吸引了來自世界各地的遊客。即使樹木已經開花，Quad 仍然是學生們在戶外野餐、玩遊戲、閱讀或在陽光下放鬆時最喜歡去的地方。
The UW is home to 8,000 international students representing more than 100 countries.

西雅圖天氣 Seattle weather
Despite its rainy reputation, Seattle averages just 37.5 inches of rain a year — less than Miami. Drizzles are more likely than downpours, so umbrellas are less common than the all-important rain jacket.
Typically, temperate winters — from November through March, the average is 47 degrees — encourage wearing layers that can be shed as chilly mornings turn into warmer afternoons. On the rare occasions snow falls (in inches rather than feet), Seattleites bust out their sleds and cross-country skis to revel on closed streets.
Seattle summers really shine: June through August, the average temp is 71 degrees, with maybe a week or two of over-80 weather (usually in July). The moderate heat and dry, blue-sky days make the area a paradise for hikers, campers, kayakers, cyclists and other lovers of the outdoors.
西雅圖的夏天天氣非常好：6月到8月，平均溫度為71°F，可能有一兩週超過 80 °F的天氣（通常在七月）。溫和的高溫和乾燥的藍天使該地區成為徒步旅行者、露營者、皮划艇運動員、騎自行車者和其他戶外愛好者們的天堂。
