A Jesuit education is one that engages the whole human being. Following in this tradition, Seattle University offers academics and student life activities that are intellectually, spiritually, ethically and creatively challenging.
Located in Seattle, Washington, Seattle U grants bachelor’s degrees through its individual schools, which include a school of Arts and Sciences, a school of Business, a School of Science and Engineering and a school of Education. Master’s degrees are also awarded through the school of Theology and Ministry.
In class, students examine ethical principles while challenging their intellect and cultivating compassion and creativity.
This multi-faceted Jesuit approach takes place outside of class as well through student life activities. The campus newspaper and radio station, poetry readings, lectures, film screenings, community service groups and more than 120 cultural, artistic, religious and recreational clubs are some examples of the varied extracurricular options.
Within the city of Seattle itself, students can also find a full range of activities.
Transcripts, an essay, recommendation letters and SAT or ACT scores are some of the materials required for undergraduate admission to Seattle University.
When seeking admission, prospective students may also apply for financial aid.
67% of students gave Seattle University 5 stars overall.
I enjoyed Seattle University a lot. The courses are challanging but so interesting it makes the effort worth it. All professors are very appoarchable and most give you their home phone number with their office number so you can reach them with questions on assignments. The campus is goregous and an amazing atmosphere to study. Days that the sun is out you will see a lot of students outside to study. There are both quiet spots to study and places were groups can gather. The Lemuix Library is incredible with lots of places to study alone or in groups. Of course the university is in Seattle and walking distance to great food, entertainment, and shopping. There are several bus lines that run near by campus, and the lightrail will have a station nearby soon. So you can study, shop, and go out to places to eat or movies within a 15 minute walk or bus ride. A car is good if you plan to go farther afield, but the bus system is very good here as well.
I believe that Seattle University is a very high quality school. Academics and professors were superb. The campus is beautiful and I always knew that I would be well prepared for the work world. The one thing that I didn't realize was how hard it was going to be. It was a very tough school and it affected my personal life and near the end I was quite burned out. My recommendation would be not to work during the time you are attending school or work part-time. My advisor was always available and knowledgeable in the areas I wanted to specialize in. I would recommend this school for anyone who wants a smaller campus and one that allows for more time with your professors and advisors.
