Seattle Pacific University Reviews
My experience at Seattle Pacific University has been so awesome. Since we are a small school, that means we have smaller classes and our professors are able to build closer relationships with us. The support, challenge, and care I received from my professors were what made my first year so worth it. Many of our professors are Doctors in their fields and teach from a place of great experience and knowledge. It is very evident in their teaching! In smaller classes, it is also so much easier to make friends with colleagues and build closer relationships with them as well. Campus life is great. All of the dorms have great communities and our dining hall is known by other colleges to be really good. Although you will reach a point where you get tired of dining hall food, it is at the end of the day, pretty good for a college cafeteria. Altogether, I love SPU and look forward to the rest of my years here.
I really like the small school atmosphere of the place. You make good friends that you most likely will have multiple classes with so it makes it easier to study and makes class more fun. The teachers have a lot of knowledge and are very receptive to feedback. Campus is beautiful and really well taken care of! The only down fall is that since they are a Christian school you are required to take quite a few in depth theology classes, regardless of your major. This takes up a lot of time, credits, and money for classes that may not be applicable for some people.
I have immensely enjoyed my time at Seattle Pacific University. Although the campus is small, it is a beautiful oasis nestled in the affable Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle, with plenty of city to explore! The food--Gwinn--is amazing, and you'll love the buffet-style cafeteria featuring amazing cookies you can stash in your backpack for later. I have learned so much during my time at SPU, due to the excellent academics and engaging professors. Give it a chance and I promise you'll love it just as much as I do!
