What Students Are Saying

4.03 Average Rating
Seattle University is a great option for students interested in International Studies. Because it is a private college, students get more one on one attention and support from well-educated professors. SU offers a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities to further one's education and global awareness.
Marissa from Seattle, WA
It is challenging, to say the least. A jesuit school, that tries not to impress upon people it's own regilious background (however ethics and theology courses are required in the CORE studies). Overall a good, well-rounded school.
