What Students Are Saying

4.03 Average Rating
This school is very small, so you meet everyone. It is near downtown, so you are able to be very mobile and independent. The classes are also very interesting and fun.
Sarah from Bremerton, WA
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.
