It all started with a walk through Arthur Denny’s wooded property in what is now downtown Seattle, when Denny and Daniel Bagley, two of Seattle’s founders, chose a small knoll on the property’s south end to locate the Territorial University of Washington. What started 150 years ago as a three-building campus on 10 acres is now a three-campus university offering 250 degree options from 16 colleges and schools. The original campus is now home to the Fairmont Olympic Hotel, a leader in the hospitality industry and one of the city’s most celebrated treasures. Today, these two institutions share more than just a plot of land. Both emerged as two of the most respected institutions with global reputations for excellence and service.—Jean Hayes
