Making the most of your visit

Visiting a college is crucial to making your final decisions on which university you will ultimately attend. Here are some helpful tips to make the most of your visit to Seattle University:

  • Eat on Campus
    Grab a bite to eat at one of our on-campus eateries! Our student employees also love to recommend their favorite neighborhood lunch spots.

  • Read the school newspaper
    Pick up a copy of The Spectator for a truly unique student perspective.

  • Don't be afraid to ask questions
    Our students are more than happy to share their SU experience with you! Here are some questions we recommend you ask our tour guides:
    • What does it mean that Seattle University is a Jesuit university?

    • What are your favorite places to hang out on and off campus?
    • What is the Core Curriculum? Do you have a favorite Core class?
    • I heard Seattle University has small class sizes; what has your classroom experience been like?
