SPU staff is incredibly friendly and student services make many events for students to attend. The student body is diverse and makes it quite easy to make friends.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The board of trustees. It feels like they aim to create a breeding ground of hate for all SPU students who are a part of a minority.

I enjoy the overall social vibrance and energy! People here are nice. In terms of academics, they have a very good medicine program, one that if you're pursuing could be beneficial down the road.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I will personally be transferring because I will be changing my major and career pathway to technology based industries, and Seattle Pacific does not offer much of anything in those areas. Also, I have come to realize that a private Christian campus just isn't for me, as I want a few more freedoms that aren't offered, but it's okay!

My favorite part about Seattle Pacific University were the professors, the faculty, and the staff. Besides that, their campus is beautiful.

It is a beautiful campus and everyone is extremely friendly and inviting. The teachers try to get to know you due to the small class sizes. They have counselor's always willing to help you and free therapy visits that are included in tuition. The campus is very diverse with many international students. The security is amazing, they respond very fast and are always willing to give you rides if you feel unsafe. There are always safe places to go and someone always willing to help you.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The food is better than most schools and has good options for people with all kinds of diets. As someone with a whole host of allergies that fall outside of the typical allergies, it can be challenging to find food from the dining hall I am 100% safe for me.

I liked the quality of the professors and the relationships that you can build with them because of the small school size. However, in the chemistry department specifically, there is a very low amount of professors and students. Since only certain professors are qualified to teach certain classes, this means some students have to wait a long time to take those classes which delay graduation time. For certain majors, it may be better to go to a university that has more opportunities and class availability.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

As stated before, the lack of professors in certain areas causes there to be little class availability which delays student graduation time.

Overall, I really enjoyed the small community that Seattle Pacific provides. The student-to-staff ratio is large, and class size is usually not very large, which personally helped me learn easier. Everyone is usually very nice, and very easy to talk to.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Food is a bit overpriced, and meal swipes are limited to only certain hours of the day.
