Seattle U is a great school with great people. The Jesuit brotherhood is by far the most open minded and liberal order of priests and it really shows. There is an emphasis on inclusiveness and community. The school does great work with the community and there are endless opportunities for service. Seattle is also an awesome city, its not giant like LA but is a Metropolitan city. Coming from California, I can say that the people of the northwest are much more laid back and "go with the flow" type people. The school has just entered WAC division 1 athletics and is on the rise. One of my big worries about coming to the school was a lack of athletics, but the student association has made some great strides to make spirit a big deal on campus. THE CAMPUS is awesome and is becoming even better. The old rundown gym has finally been replaced and the school will also be building a new basketball stadium to meet WAC standards, as the current one does not. Because it is rainy most of the year the school also provides a variety of ways of wet weather friendly activity. They have an indoor turf field, which can be used to play soccer and tennis. They also have indoor basketball courts and as of fall quarter 2012 they will also have an artificial turf soccer and baseball field along with a track. The housing is also good. They are slowly making improvements to the residence halls, and remodeling them, and in 2011 new student apartments opened. The library and student center are also new highlights all built within the last five years. The library gives a lot of help options to from the pretty helpful librarians, to the learning center, free tutoring, and facilitated study groups.The dining is pretty good. They do a good job of mixing things up, so you don't get to bored. I've been to many schools that just have a cafeteria assembly line style, but not here. Most of the food is cooked right in front of you fresh, and the different stations of the main cafeteria never have the same menu. In fact most of the options you are supposed to design your own meal. There 2 main dining facilities, with different styles, along with 4 other cafe type establishments spotted around campus, one of which is in an on campus little mini mart. This little store is packed with everything from ice cream, frozen foods, cereal, toothpaste, and over the past year have adopted alot of gluten free options along with local options. The food service is also great about having vegetarian options, and in the northwest there are plenty of vegetarians. The people that go to this school are all pretty open minded, and the school is very LGBTQ friendly. I highly recommend this school. Seattle U isn't the biggest name right now, but it will be in the future. They are doing big things at this school, and are quickly making a name for themselves.
