Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

It would be difficult to find someone who didn’t enjoy his or her time at Seattle University and would not be willing to do it all over again. Of course, there are some gripes, and some genuine difficulties, but none of them have ever really been large enough to make people regret their decisions to come here. The professors who teach here are top-notch, and it is easy for students to form a close relationship with them, and not just because of the small class sizes. Of course, the size of the campus itself, and the kind of community that surrounds it, prevents there from ever being a traditional “college-town” feel like you would get around the UW and the Ave, but with all of the options around First Hill and on Broadway up on Capitol Hill, you won’t be lacking for anything to do.

The city itself is a wonderful place to live and play, with a vibrant cultural life in many different areas like music, theater, and cuisine, and despite recent issues, it is a generally safe place to live. It’s the kind of dynamic place that is essential to explore if you want to have a fully developed college experience. Shutting yourself up in your dorm room and not interacting with your floormates or friends will only lead to bitterness and resentment. People here are generally welcoming, and though it might be hard to break the ice with some, once you do you will find a world of connections and opportunities opening up to you. The Jesuit spirit of openness and curiosity is all over campus, and it will affect you if you choose to go here. If you are looking for a goal in life, be prepared to find one, and if you feel you already have one, well, be prepared for the chance that it will change.
