    I have met my best friends here. There is so much going on around campus and being so close to down town helps keep social lives versatile. It's nice to have a small campus in a large city becasue I feel like the city is an extension of campus.

    I truly enjoy being a student here at Seattle University. I enjoy all the other students who come from such diverse backgrounds, as well as all the staff members who challenge you daily to become not only a better student but person. I enjoy the all natural food on campus, the events, and even the dorm rooms.

    I love being here so much. It's amazing because you are in the middle of this huge city, but when you are on campus you feel like you are a part of a smaller community and family. Everyone smiles and acknowledges each other on campus. There are always activities that are being put on by SU that are actually really fun!

    No, I would say I love it! I have lived n Seattle for ten years before attending SU, and not a city person. Through SU I am actually starting to love being in Seattle. I have gone to some basketball games, a fashion show, two concerts, and other activities. I am a member in several clubs and find new people to meet and hang with almost daily. I am a commuter student and enjoy the collegia. It is a great place to chill between classes, study, or visit with new friends. I have found new places in Seattle to try and explore through friends on campus. SU has actually made city living fun for a non-city person, a major achievement. I'm having more fun than my friends that are going to U of Washington.
