What Students Are Saying

4.03 Average Rating
In high school I could get straight A's with just the barest amount of studying. In college, however, all that has changed. I have a study desk, a lamp, a drawer full of books, and all the sugary snacks I would need to keep me up all night and I use them all the time. You cannot slack off with the classes here. But just because the classes are hard does not mean you cannot get good grades. The amount of help you get is astonishing. In the library is the tutor center, writing center, and math lab. The professors meet up with you when needed and they even set up their own special study time with tutors that you can attend for free.

The beginning is not as difficult because of all the help available. It does become more rigorous as time passes.

A lot of the classes are hard, but not to the point that you are destined to fail. You are just going to just have to keep on track and don't fall behind on reading... ever.

It is hard for me, I won't deny or try to sugar coat anything. I have friends currently taking the nurse program, and they study night and day. The academics here are challenging, but usually teach you things you want to learn, and will be able to use in the furture. Just choose your classes wisely!

This University has a very rigorous program for all major fields. With required core classes and a brand new system reinvented to educating the whole person recently established, Seattle University continually seeks to improve the curriculum and makes it quite evident with this recent change. Each class pushes you and makes you strive for the grade worthy of your efforts. Indeed it is a very tough journey, but what journey isn't? The teachers get to know each of you individually and also finds the methods to teach you to best improve your capacity for learning and succeeding. You will be faced with very critical moments in your academic life here, but teachers and staff are ready to guide you along the way making readily accessible office hours to everyone. You truly receive all of what you put into tuition when you go here.
College Freshman from HI
The classes at Seattle University are small and discussion based. Professors push you to participate and attend class regularly. You have to be self sufficient when it comes to deadlines because often times your professor will not remind you! Read the syllabus, study, and stay engaged to ensure success. No classes here are Easy A's
