Students planning to come to Seattle, if they do not already know the place, should very well make sure to plan for an adventure. Seattle University is at the heart of Seattle and does an amazing job of blending in. Make sure you bring comfortable, warm clothes and have a pair of shoes that you don't mind walking everywhere in. The campus is small enough to get around by walking which eliminates the need for any bikes and boards, but it will indeed benefit you. Freshman 15? Seeing as you walk pretty much everywhere you go you may actually be losing 15. A big tip is to be open to the city around you. The city is absolutely amazing and is less than a mile or two away! You can find all the shopping places you need, so you definitely wouldn't need to bring you entire house with you. Although it may be wonderful here the whether is extremely bipolar. One day it may be sunny, and the next it can rain. One year may have snowfall, and the next Seattle decides not to have a White Christmas. Make sure you love the cold when you come here because you will easily start to feel like cool drafts if you haven't already!
