I really love the campus size and the location! Being in the city, yet not being in the city, is a great place to live. Having smaller classes means more hands-on experience, and more one on one time with professors. However, the school tends to lack in diversity.
LOVELY!!! SO FRIGGING AMAZING! As a Muslim student, I don't feel excluded as I did in highschool. All of them are kind and lovely, including the professors.
Seattle Pacific is a really great school. Although a Christian affiliate, SPU does a lot to maintain proper social, political, and cultural awareness and advances. However, I think there should be more to include students that do not identify with Christianity. The class sizes are small, intimate, and the teachers care about the students. I like the small school setting, especially because spu is situated in a good area, so as not to get too isolated by the size of the school

They seem very friendly there. So far, I have only visited, but they seem nice. The administration has done a great job of reaching out to me!
Decent school, I am not sure it is worth the price tag. Despite the economy within Seattle, the tuition price is high and the added prices continue to rise. I am not sure where most of the money goes since the sports program is small and there are heavy fines on textbooks, dorm fees, uniforms, and transportation.
I like how everyone is very friendly. I also like how SPU tries to add diversity. However, they could add more diversity.
I like Seattle Pacific because of the small class sizes and attention I receive from professors. It is an easy place to be yourself and learn without feeling as if you are being judged. I enjoy this school because it gives me the opportunity to thrive in whatever direction I choose due to the fact that it is diverse in the studies it offers. Seattle Pacific University is a culture that is loving and welcoming and it is a blessing to be a part of. All of these are reasons why I decided to come here and I am so glad I did.
I love going to school here! The class sizes are fairly small (20-40 students), so I actually know my classmates and my professors. No matter how busy they are, my professors have always been more than willing to provide help outside of class as well.
What I love about Seattle Pacific University is the community aspect. Everyone loves and accepts each other and the professors do an amazing job of creating the community. What I would like to see change is for our campus to be more culturally and ethnically diverse.
I love Seattle Pacific. I am a second year here. I think a lot of the lower reviews saying we have no greek life and students cannot drink are funny because they openly advertise that on the tour, on the website, in the rules, etc. SPU proudly says it is a dry campus and if anyone took two seconds to ask, they would know that going in. It is a great school, the professors really care and the workload is actually manageable.
So far SPU seems like a good school. It is very small however and sometimes hard to get away from people.
I love how SPU welcomes the new students who've never been away from home before. They have made my first month a wonderful transition with a beautiful community atmosphere.
My favorite thing about Seattle Pacific has to be the amazing professors in the science department. Since a lot of the classes are on the smaller size, you can have that one on one relationship with the professor. The professors also genuinely care about how you are doing both academically and personally.
One con that I could say about the university would have to be that there isn't a lot of diversity on campus. As a student of color, I would like to see more activities/clubs geared towards POC
SPU is an amazing school, this school not only guided me in the right career path for myself but it gave me a chance at having an amazing education. This has broadened my knowledge base with the many resources they provided through my undergraduate years and has led me to return to my alma matter in completing my masters degree. The staff know you by name and not just your id number, the environment is warm, caring, providing you with that comfort of not letting you fall behind.
The small size of SPU gives it a number of advantages. First, you get smaller class sizes. Most of my lower division classes were 25-40 students. Upper division classes are even smaller. The professors are there because they want to invest in students, so nearly all of them welcome students to visit during office hours, and I have met with a few of my professors for coffee to further discuss class material or life. I also found a really good community of peers at SPU. It should be noted that a lot of this is because I started there as a freshman in the dorms--if you do not live on campus and/or transfer in, it is a lot harder to feel that you have joined the community. Also, they lack diversity. The majority of students are white women. The majority of professors are white men. Nevertheless, I had a very positive experience at SPU. I am pleased with the level of education I have received and how the professors have developed deep, critical thinking in me.
It is a wonderful school with great teachers and classes. Student life is great if you are a social person. Food is not too bad and dorms are nice.
The coursework is difficult but very informative. Teachers are very knowledgeable but also very kind and caring.

Seattle Pacific University is a great school! The professors connect with their students and truly want them to succeed in college and their future careers. Also, the learning atmosphere is phenomenal, as the small class sizes make it possible to ask many questions during the lecture. Overall, the campus is beautifully maintained in a great location.
I graduated from Seattle Pacific University two years ago. I was there only for three years as I had transferred credit from a local community college. It was a very challenging three years for me, but, once I felt connected with a community, it was very rewarding. I met many very wonderful, compassionate, and intelligent people there, but I think my favorite part about SPU, beside it's great location in Seattle and all of the opportunities that location provided, were the professors. While I did not connect with all of my professors, I did with most and still stay in touch and see them. They played such a huge role in my development, not only academically, during those three years, but also personally. There were some times I can recall have felt like I gave up on myself, but it was the professors of all people that kept me going and gave me the motivation and self-assurance that I would get through those challenging moments.
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!
