Off-Campus Housing: I haven't really tried that hard to look for off campus yet so I can't be of much help

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: THere are very few guys and the ones that are here most of them are hipsters. I will say that the guys here have a sense of community between themselves that I haven't seen before which is really cool. It's really nice to have them in class because of the different perspective they give.

Scholarships: It's pretty easy to apply its just hard to find more than what they give you. This school is so expensive and even with all the aid its hard to make ends meet.

Computers: There are lots of computers in the library. The internet is either awful or great. It can be super slow and there are days that it just wont stay connected and it is really frustrating when you are trying to go on blackboard.

Athletics: We don't have a whole bunch of interscholastic sports, and personally they aren't the ones I am super interested in. A decent amount of people go to the games but I wouldn't say its a huge thing for campus.

Academics: I have had only a handful of professors that I feel like didn't teach very well but other than that the professors are great. I have been so challenged and learned so much in my classes.

Local Atmosphere: I love that Queen Anne, Freemont and Ballard are all about a mile away and within walking distance for the most part. Golden Gardens and GasWorks are awesome! The bus to U W and downtown is so convenient!

Campus Strictness: I really like that alcohol isn't strictly not allowed in thedorms because it makes it easier to stay away from. It does make it hard for the of age people in the apartments

Weather: I personally love the rain, it just sucks when its 40 degrees and raining. It is really nice in the spring when the sun comes out. Just cold and damp in the winter.

Drug Safety: Drugs and alcohol doesn't happen on campus. IF they want to drink and go to parties, there is a larger university near by or they go to someone's house. There is the use of tobacco and huka, but again they aren't allowed on campus so people smoke that and their cigarettes right off campus.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Seattle Pacific University is unique. Students do not have to fit a specific prototype to find their experience rewarding and worthwhile. While SPU does not boast a particularly diverse student body, the education and experience offered truly could accommodate one. For those who seek spiritual growth, there are loads of activities and classes to nurture their souls. For those who aren’t interested, a few Christian scripture classes with surprisingly open-minded professors will suffice. Unlike many religiously-affiliated universities, SPU does not have mandatory chapel services.

Scholarships are distributed generously, which means it won’t take a miracle to finance school if the attendee is comfortable with moderate school loans upon graduation. Plus, students can complete their degree in four years—no sweat. For students who desire a close-knit community, small class sizes and on-campus housing are available and ready to smother them with warm fuzzies. For the more independent, adventurous type, there is a bustling city full of character to be explored—just a walk or bus ride away. Whatever activity or subculture is not represented on campus, it can surely be found in Seattle. As a whole, Seattle Pacific University and Seattle are extraordinarily thoughtful communities, as they both rub off on each other in many ways, leaving a permanent but beautiful mark on all of those who come in contact with them.
