What is your overall opinion of this school?
To start off: The biggest issue on campus right now is money. Our school decided to change to divison 1, and most everyone is unhappy with that. This change means cutting art programs, such as German and theater. Also, it means a 9% increase in tuition. And when you're already paying over 30,000 to go to school, 9% is a big deal; especially when it's for something like athletics at a school where people could care less if we have a soccer or softball team.
Other than that, it's nice. The campus gets to be small after a while, but a 4 block walk always brings you outside of the school to a nice park, new resturaunt, or downtown to all the shopping and movies and Pike Place. Not many people have heard of SU. Usually when I say I go here, they reply with "Oh yeah. I've been to SPU. They have a nice campus." I usually correct them and say "Sorry, not SPU. SU. Seattle University. On Capitol Hill." Other times, I just let it fly. There's not really a college town feeling here, but I like that becuase it transitions you into the real world a little better, providing more job oppertunities other than working for the school or in a resturaunt.
There's plenty to do and see here. It's easy to get caught up in the goings on around campus, but it's nice to be able to get out easily and experience things on your own.
