Did You Know?
There are eight Fortune 500 Companies located in the greater Seattle region. Six of which are located less than twelve miles from campus!
Here is the complete list of Fortune 500 Companies in the Greater Seattle Area and their rank on the list:
Expeditors International of Washington (434)
Many of these companies have made significant contributions to the UW or have used the UW as a scouting pool for their professional talent. Such as:
The Nordstrom Tennis Center, graciously donated by the late Lloyd Nordstrom, is one of Husky Athletics staple facilities situated between Hec Ed and Husky Stadium.
Microsoft founders, Bill Gates and Paul Allen, have funded multiple departmental buildings such as The Paul G. Allen Center for Computer Science and Engineering that overlooks Husky Stadium and Mary Gates Hall which houses all undergraduate academic tutorials (student-athletes are able to use this facility as well as SAAS).
The Paccar Corporation made a splash when they donated upwards of 18 million dollars to establish a state-of-the art building, Paccar Hall, for the Foster School of Business.
