5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: SPU is in the middle of two awesome foodie neighborhoods. Plus, downtown is a short bus/ car ride away.

Off-Campus Dining: We live in downtown Seattle, so the options are pretty much endless. Unfortunately Seattle is also very expensive. There are some very cheap places though.

Off-Campus Dining: SPU is in a residential neighborhood. There are a few thai restaurants within walking distance, but most restaurants require a car. For Seattle, the prices are really competitive, compared to the U. District, its overpriced though. Student discounts are hard to come by, but that also depends on your taste in food.

Off-Campus Dining: I haven't explored the local off-campus cuisine a whole lot, mostly to save money, but I've seen a lot of small places that interest me. There are a lot of Thai and pizza restaurants. Fremont has better choices than Queen Anne.

Off-Campus Dining: There aren't very many places within walking distance of campus or that are open late enough for the average college student. The quality is okay, but most people just use their on-campus meal plans.

Seattle Pacific isn't in a prime location for an easy bite when you step off campus; there are only a few choices within walking distance. If you're feeling ambitious and don't mind a longer jaunt, Fremont is within range. The best option would be to hop on a bus or drive a short distance to access infinite opportunities for great grub. Seattle has every genre of cuisine (including vegetarian options), but, by far, Seattle has the most variety in the category of Asian food. You will never be more than five minutes away from restaurants that serve pad Thai, Sushi, or pho. 

There are also many restaurants on the waterfront Downtown that serve excellent seafood, like Ivar's Salmon House or Cutter's, but these places tend to be a bit pricey, even if they are deserving. These spots may be better for when your parents come to visit and foot the bill. One of the great things about Seattle is that often atmosphere is considered just as important to a meal as the food. Some of the best advocates of that partnership include Mama's Mexican Kitchen Downtown, Mamma Melina's Italian restaurant in the University District, and the B & O Expresso in Capitol Hill.
