"Regret that I chose to go here. The tuition is very high, yet the school doesn't offer much at all. The facilities are old and low budget. Sports teams, clubs, and school events are lousy. Few classes are offered- some required courses are only offered once every other year. The students are very spoiled, snobby, and unkind."

"Overall, I really enjoyed the program at Seattle Pacific University. The Music department was a friendly and welcoming place, and I really enjoyed the variety of options for choirs and ensembles to get a lot of experience performing. A particularly sunny spot for me was the Percussion Ensemble- led by the fantastic Dan Adams. Getting to travel with these musicians and bonding together was a cherished part of my education, and with it I gained lifelong friends."

"I transferred to Seattle Pacific University half way through my degree. While it was a difficult community to break into as a transfer student, eventually the school, students, and professors came to be my home. Professors seemed to not only thoroughly love the topics they were teaching, but also be practicing in the field."

"I liked the idea of a Christian liberal arts college. I made meaningful relationships with teachers and staff. My university president was reachable and knew me personally. I wished it was more diverse, but overall I had a great time there. Definitely go there if you want a small tight knit community."

"The best thing about the school was the close knit community. The worst thing about it was that it's hard to get out of the "bubble" at the school."

"Seattle Pacific University offers more than just classes. It's classes in the subjects you're interested in but with an eternal perspective, because we're about engaging culture with our lives."

"Great college. For many, it is a great place to develop a close group of friends. Great professors. Coming out of SPU, you are exposed to many different views with little to no biases. They try hard to display the facts."

"I love attending SPU. It is an evironment filled with great people who really aim to make a difference with their talents, for the greater community . I have been able to connect with the professors and staff on a personal level that I could not get elsewhere. I have grown SO much in the little time that I have been here and I look up to my advisors and professors with a fond admiration."

Rachel Quigley - 9/3/2013
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2009
"Seattle Pacific University's School of Business and Economics set the stage for its students to learn about business as a productive contributor to society. Through classes ranging from Social Enterprise to the Legal Environment of Business, the program's variety and in depth study of each area related to business has impacted my career direction. I was so glad I took advantage of the Mentor Program and Internship opportunities. With this school being in the heart of Seattle, there are innumerable businesses, companies and non-profits to engage. The only thing I would have done differently is to take part in a study abroad program."
