What is your overall opinion of this school?

Seattle University is a great school for those who are looking for an academically stimulating environment in the middle of the city. Although Seattle U is not a party school, most students are very welcoming and willing to make friends. My favorite aspects of Seattle U are the resources provided, specifically the small classes, writing center, and access to free tutors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I first arrived to Seattle University I was a scared little freshman unsure of what my college experience would be like. Having chosen Seattle University has been one of my best decisions because the culture here at Seattle makes me feel at home. I feel like I am accepted wherever I go, in and out of the classroom.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the atmosphere on campus. Because the school is located on Capitol Hill, there is a hugely diverse community and everyone is accepted, no matter their race, gender/genders, culture, etc. The faculty is also extremely involved in keeping the students engaged. I struggled my first quarter, but received a lot of help from my professors and advisor.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Seattle University really does give you a unique environment to learn in. The campus food is amazing and the people there are even better. Coming from a small town I didn't know how I would feel moving to such a big city but, the school's location gives a small town feel with big city amenities. As an international business major, I love how many opportunities there are to work with the many major companies that have headquarters in Seattle. There are plenty of activities to do on and off campus that will help you find your place in school. If you're looking for a school that you will help you grow not only in academics but also as a person Seattle University will be the place for you.

Awesome College for Progressive Students

If you are someone who sees themselves as progressivly active or enjoy the discussion and action that social justice can take this is the university for you. It is a jesuit university, but don't let that be a reason against it. I'm non-religious but I think the way that religion and culture is studied here leads to a great beginning for preparing for post graduation.

City Vibes

Seattle U is a great school for those who want to live in a city while also not being directly in downtown Seattle. Being a 15 minute walk away from the heart of downtown, SU gives students the perfect location to venture around campus and learn from the diverse culture Seattle emits, especially Capital Hill where SU is located. While it is a small campus, you will appreciate not having to walk long distances in between class or those few times you happen to be running late to class. A small campus allows for a close knit community to exist where you have real relationships with your professors and classmates. SU is a school worth paying for, despite the high tuition that is constantly increasing.

I like my School

I love my University! It's right on Capitol Hill and is only a few minutes walk from downtown! There is an assortment of shops and Cafes, and there is always new foods to try! My classmates are always studious and intelligent and the professors always love to engage with students! One draw back is the tuition, the prices are always on the rise, and sometimes it's terrifying to imagine not getting a job that pays well enough to cover my student loans!

My future home.

I was raised in Nairobi, and growing up there I have witnessed things that might shock a lot of people. To me, it seemed natural. The thing that I have come to understand is trust. One must be careful about trusting. People will kill you for 20 shillings. Every time you leave your house you can’t be sure that you will come back. This is a difficult lesson for a young child to learn. Visiting Seattle University, I come to understand some of the students that attend at the Seattle University have same value as I one how to help people in poverty across the world with the knowledge the we learn from our professors at Seattle University . I cm to understand the students at the Seattle University don't have the experience of being an immigrant to the USA has given me even more insight because I can see how sheltered Americans are to what is happening in the world. I do believe that this has empowered me to help further develop American culture by adding another American voice to our melting pot and helping our country grow in its empathy for the entire world.

Overall a good place

Seattle U has a lot going for it. It's an incredibly friendly, warm environment. One dean once told me that the attitude at the school is that all the "kids" are genuinely good, and you'd have to be a pretty deliberately bad person to change their minds. That means that professors start off from a place of respect, though you can always mess it up, but they don't assume anything bad about you right off the bat. It sounds a little random and silly, but the way the dean described it really made a lot of things suddenly make sense to me. It's a Jesuit Catholic school, and while religion is never pushed, the Jesuit philosophy is fundamental to almost every aspect of life at SU. That means: caring about the less fortunate, putting others before yourself, and learning HOW to think, not WHAT to think. There are always a few bad professors at any school, and SU is no exception. But there are so few bad profs there (and it's such a small school) that they quickly get a bad name for themselves, and your friends and classmates will tell you who to avoid. Overall, it's a warm, supportive environment, and a good bridge between home and the real world.
