4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Friendly professors, small campus that is easy to get around, some difficulty with graduate office communication.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It was a great experience, I got to know lots of people and faculty

5 College Junior

Campus Food: The food here is fantastic, mostly because of how many options there are. I think the initial meal plan requirements are unnecessary and a little annoying, but my experience with dining services at SU has been an overwhelmingly positive one.

Off-Campus Dining: I am only rating it okay because the food is somewhat hiked up in terms of prices.

Off-Campus Dining: Cool places in cap hill, but not many that target the students that stay out late and don't want to pay too much.

Scholarships: The University gave me a pretty good amount of scholarship based on my high school gpa, and I am not carrying that much debt.

Campus Food: Overall, food is pretty good, but the lines are always really long. You always have to wait a pretty good amount of time if you want to get any of the really good meals.

Campus Housing: They're ok, but the rooms aren't very spacious. None of the dorms have private, or at least shared, restrooms. All the bathrooms are public. Common areas are nice and good enough room for studying.

Off-Campus Housing: I still live on campus but in my search for somewhere off campus to live there seems to be a pretty good variety at pretty good costs

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I love all the options of off campus dining around

2 College Sophomore

Administration: It all depends on your RA and which RA is on duty, some will let you off with warnings some will write you up immediately.

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.
