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.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Communication between high-up board administrators and the student body.
