What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great school to spend your undergraduate years. The class sizes range from around 40 (for the more general classes) to around 12 (for the higher level classes). With that said, professors know your name by the first week of class and this makes sure your not just another face in the crowd. The small class sizes are one of the things I like about this university. The professors are always available either through office hours, through email, or even directly after class. You start to feel like you are friends with your professors. Many prefer to be called by their first names, or by a nickname and many will invite you to lunch. Not in a creepy way (at least to my knowledge) but in a let's talk about it over lunch way. The party scene isn't obnoxious; there are usually small parties going on or just small gatherings at someone's apartment but they don't often disturb other students if you're not into the party scene. Similarly, we have 18+ clubs that people frequent. There's a lot of political conversations especially since we are in the heart of Seattle. We are not afraid to criticize our administration for questionable decisions and if we feel something unfair is happening we say it. Because, the university is in the heart of Seattle, only a few minutes from downtown, there are many things to do around campus. However, we also often get crime advisories and "suspicious" people sightings on campus. Public safety and the Seattle Police Department is usually quick to respond. The dorms are on the smaller side and kinda expensive. The apartments on campus and off campus are pretty nice but also a little on the pricier side. We live in Seattle so this is to be expected. With that said it is a private school so it can be very expensive to attend. It is my 2nd year at SU and I've loved it so far.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Seattle University has really interesting academic programs. In the College of Business, students can major in entrepreneurial studies along with accounting, economics or business management. Even though the campus is in the middle of a busy city, it is like going to school inside a park! The entire campus is 48 acres and a lot of that space is devoted to gardens and big, beautiful trees. Some students put up hammocks and study while swinging in the sunny breeze.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's tour season, which means that a couple of SU students will be taking groups of clueless highschoolers and their parents around the best parts of campus. What they don't show you are the undermaintained facilities, the drab and descolate classrooms, the horrible food options (I'm allergic to gluten and dairy! There's nothing to eat, the food is gross, and the staff is underpaid!), and the severely depreciated non-tenured staff. While SU is nicer for its smaller class sizes and oasis of a campus (meaning, as soon as you step OFF campus, you're likely to be haggled and harassed on the street), I'd look into options like UW or even WWU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the atmosphere here at Seattle University. The political activism and campus-wide support for all people are unlike any other. Professors welcome new ideas and want all students to feel that what they say matters. There are so many different clubs to join where you can make lasting friendships. I believe any student who chooses to attend Seattle University will feel at home!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like Seattle University. It's a small school, which means small class sizes, which I like because the professor actually knows your name and you get to build a relationship with them. Classes are challenging but doable. The school seems pretty accepting, with various events and clubs and resources for queer, people of color, various religious groups, veterans among others. There's a variety of ways to get involved which is great. There's the previously mentioned clubs for specific identities, intramural sports, student government and even a radio station, which is super cool and I'm part of. Another really great way to get involves is with the school's center for community engagement. It's great that the school encourages giving back to the community because we should take advantage of the privileged position we are in to help others that aren't. I personally work at the local elementary school in an after school program run by SU. Seattle is a big city, so with that comes the possibility of danger. Luckily, SU takes safety seriously. There are emergency boxes all campus and Public safety officers are always available, and you can even call them to walk you from the library to your dorm when it's dark out. The location is great. Downtown is a 30-minute walk away from campus. There are a lot of restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores, etc within walking distance and there's not as much hustle and bustle as there is in downtown. The amenities are pretty typical for a college. Room and bathrooms are pretty good. Each room has a fridge, microwave and sink and the bathrooms have a good number of stalls and showers Food is decent. There's stuff like pasta and hamburgers but they also have a more actual meal like food, but it's usually not great, so I end up getting a burger. I wish there was more variety of food and that there were also healthier options. Overall, I'm happy with my decision to come here and look forward to continuing my education here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion for SU is that it's a beautiful Catholic open and welcoming private campus to anyone that would love to join and it is also a Jesuit culture which is something extraordinary. The campus and the environment have a wonderful contribution to the student body and also the community in which it is in. I would love to be part of this humble and beautiful place.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, the high cost is not worth the facilities. Professors and life-long connections are the saving grace of this university. The location obviously has a lot of perks being in the middle of a major city. It's easy to get off campus and out into the "real world" whenever you need a break from studying.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I transferred from another school and so far I am really enjoying it. I live in the on campus apartments but there is still activities in the building. There is always things to do and you are close to food and shops. So far I really like it here and would suggest it to people who want to be in a bustling downtown but have a quite, small campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Seattle University has a fantastic academic environment and a beautiful, localized campus in the perfect location within the city. However, it falls short when it comes to our expectations of support of student life and overall well-being. There are many programs in place intended to foster a community between students, but they are not very active and often don't do enough to really do what they are intended. Honestly, you get out what you put in with the social aspects of going here, but that's true for many universities. The professors are knowledgeable (a bit pretentious at times) and the workload is a fair degree of difficulty. Campus is pretty safe and accessible, and the neighborhood that surrounds us is great save the high cost of living when moving off campus.
