Off-Campus Housing: Off-Campus housing is available but you have to be willing to pay downtown Seattle prices. Most of the time students find it to be expensive and have to obtain multiple roommates just to afford it. For some it's worth it, for others its easier just to stay on campus.

Off-Campus Dining: We live in downtown Seattle! Places to eat are endless. But we do live downtown so sometime prices can be a little more expensive.

Administration: Since we do live in Seattle the administration's views on discipline are very liberal but we also do go to a Catholic school making some of the decisions a little bit stricter.

Scholarships: I received more than I was accepting from the school just from my GPA and the FAFSA. The rest I earned in outside scholarships and loans. Seattle U was very helpful throughout the entire process and always answers your questions no matter how repetitious they may sound.

Party Scene: Being at school where there is no Greek life, parties are few and far to come across. The parties that you will find will be off campus or at UW. All I can say is thank the lord for Uber and Lyft!

Campus Food: At Seattle University we are very lucky with our food options. All of our food has no trans-fats or preservatives (unless of course you buy packaged food at The Cave). The only thing I complain about are the low amount of options for gluten-free, vegan, and lactose-free. They are available and labeled, but they're aren't as much as some of my friends were hoping for. Overall our campus food is very good, but nothing beats Momma's cooking.

Campus Housing: I love living on campus. I currently live in Campion Hall and love being so close to my classes and the dining hall. Since I live in Campion Hall I'm only a 20 minute walk from my job downtown. The views in Campion are also fantastic, don't worry I lived on floor 2 and it isn't that bad of a view. It truly is the best for Freshman and Sophomores that want to live on Campus.

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is pretty unaffordable, rent is skyrocketing and parking is hard to find.

Scholarships: Scholarships for GPA are a great option, but are not enough compared to how expensive tuition is. I will be in A LOT of debt from just two years at SU. There are not enough scholarships/grants for people whose parents could afford to pay for their schooling but are not.

Campus Housing: I live off 15 miles off campus. The commute is long during rush hour (about 1.5 hours), but during off times is not bad (about 45 minutes).

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.
