Excellent Academics. My first year here helped me to grow a great deal intellectually, personally, and spiritually. The core (required classes for all undergrads) may seem too extensive but, believe me, they truly do help to create in you a balanced and well rounded person. Plus you will be opened up to new ideas that you would have never otherwise explored.

    While this campus is pretty and well located in downtown, it is a difficult school to merge into. Science here is not a heavy focus and the liberal arts are the only type of class they can effectively teach. If you're coming as an unknown or liberal arts major this place is amazing.

    Seattle University is a small, private, Jesuit university just a couple of minutes from Downtown Seattle. It is a welcoming place with wonderful professors and students. The university encourages students to speak their minds and not be afraid to have complex discussions.

    I really love this school. While it's painfully expensive they offer good scholarships and I truly feel that the quality of education and resources supplied to us is completely worth it. Only downside I have found so far is it's incredibly political and they tend to push (shove) their beliefs and values down your throat- other views aren't respected as much as they should be.

    Seattle University is a Jesuit school that is right in the middle of the city. Just because Seattle University is Jesuit does not mean you have to believe in a certain religion. It just means they pride themselves in helping you become a smart graduate, not just a smart student.

    Seattle University is an amazing college focused on the holistic approach to teaching. Although it is a bit pricey, the food, small class sizes, and one-on-one time with your professor is well worth it.

    The university has good academics that are rigorous and cover a lot. Socially it isn't as great and students are unfriendly to people who don't fit the status quo. Administration is also kind of bad, doesn't do that great of a job, but facilities are fantastic.

    Classes are small and there's plenty of one on one time with the professors. The campus is beautiful. Professors are very helpful with classwork and looking for jobs, and internships.
