Campus Visit Notes for Seattle University


Visit Description:

I cant think of anything that stood out, but I really was impressed with the campus and being from the area was sort of so-so about staying here. One of my first choices now! Class sizes are perfect for me, average is 20. The dorms looked really nice and the campus is small so I didnt feel overwhelmed or like I could get lost!
