The best part of Seattle U is that it is right in the city so there is so much to do, but at the same time when you're on campus you feel like you're in a bubble away from the city. One thing I would change about Seattle U is the ratio of girls to guys. There is about 2 girls to every guy, which is good for the guys and sucks for the girls. If you're a guy, come to Seattle U, you will definitely find a girlfriend. If you're a girl, don't come to college expecting to find a boyfriend. I love that Seattle U is small, all my teachers know my name and encourage me to come speak with them if I'm having issues in their class. It sucks we don't have a football team, but if you want the aspects of a big school that Seattle U doesn't offer you can always just go do them at Udub while still attending Seattle U. When I tell people I go to Seattle they ask me if the rain bothers me, which it really doesn't. I didn't really think it rained all that much actually. Then they ask if I go to a private school, and assume I'm rich. On campus most of my time is spent in my dorm room doing homework or hanging with friends. There is definitely of school pride, but since we don't have a nationally ranked football or basketball team, there's not much to brag about.
All my professors knew my name this last year. i didn't have a favorite class this year, I was taking all core reqs or general biology or general chemistry; not much fun there. But now that I'm done with the general classes I can get onto the ones I actually want to take like Anatomy. Students study all the time and if they're not, chances are they should be. All I did freshman year was study, with a little procrastination and a little partying thrown in there. Class participation is usually required, teachers grade on it. But it's no different than high school. Some students have intellectual conversations, again same as high school. The science dept is really tough, the classes can be pretty difficult, but everybody wants to help you and see you do well. Education at Seattle U will get you a job right out of college and you will have a great deal of knowledge.
There is a group for everything on campus. No student would feel out of place, there are all types of people at Seattle U. Students usually wear sweats and comfy clothes to class. I felt dressed up when I wore heels one day, some students wear heels al the time though. Yeah all the different groups interact with each other. Four tables in the dining hall, one contains the soccer boys and some girls, one contains graduate students and their computers doing work, one contains all sorts of different people who are all friends and one contains a group of girls just having good time. Most Seattle U students are from Washington, but people come from all over. The financial backgrounds of people are usually middle to upper-middle class. Yes any students would love to rave about their political views to you. They are predominantly left, democratic views. No they do not talk about now much they hope to make someday.
