There are over 4,000 colleges and universities in the U.S. And while the media tends to focus on just a handful of schools, we at College Coach encourage students to think outside the box during their college selection process and explore a wide range of colleges. As such, we are highlighting a new college each week in our School Spotlight series. Check out the college below, along with the other posts in our series, and you may just stumble upon your dream school!
School Spotlight: Seattle University
The coffee alone might be enough to convince some students to attend college in Seattle. But those who are looking for a mid-sized university that provides individualized attention and opportunities for personal and spiritual growth should look no further than Seattle University. This Jesuit Catholic university attracts a diverse yet inclusive student body. Sixty-four percent of SU’s 4,300 undergrads come from out-of-state, while over one-third are students of color. The university offers a wide range of liberal arts and pre-professional majors, including cultural anthropology, electrical engineering, international business, and public affairs. High-achieving first-year students interested in attending SU’s law school may be invited to participate in the Law Scholars Program. Members attend lectures and workshops at the School of Law, and can also volunteer in the University’s Access to Justice Institute. Seniors who successfully complete the program will be offered a place in the university’s law school! Do you love the great outdoors? Come enjoy the beautiful Pacific Northwest by joining an activity offered by the University Recreation Department, such as kayaking around Whidbey Island, hiking along Umtanum Canyon, or cross-country skiing at Stevens Pass.
