Hello! Congratulations on your acceptance! I’m so glad to hear that, thank you so much! My tour experience was similar when I applied to SU, so I’m glad the tour was helpful and informative and that you fell in love with campus - it’s a very special place! Let me know if you have any further questions, I’m happy to help. We’ll see you in the Fall! :)
One of my favorite things about Seattle U is the liveliness of campus, whether it’s during the week or on the weekends. Over half of our students are from outside the State of Washington, meaning that during the weekends you won’t be left hanging out by yourself while all of your friends go home for the weekend. This was especially nice being from California, and being able to go around the city with friends on long weekends like we just had.
Speaking of weekends, lately I’ve been feeling an incredible since of wanderlust and desire to go on an adventure outside of the city. When I was abroad in Barcelona, weekends consisted of crazy, last-minute excursions to cities all over Europe, and I got so used to the fast-paced, explorer lifestyle that my already restless spirit had trouble adjusting back to in Seattle. Sounds crazy, but I’ve been eager to get out of the city for awhile now.
Fortunately for us city-dwellers, public transportation, train lines, easy access to a major international airport, and access to services such as ZipCar and Car2Go provide excellent opportunities to explore the greater Puget Sound Area, even if it’s for the day, or even exploring out of state. Since I’m from out-of-state, I wasn’t able to bring my car up from Cali, but I’m hoping my new membership with ZipCar will allow me to explore the city more on day trips, or even just an easier way to get around.
Check out their website in case you’re worried about not having a car in the city, but remember that Seattle has great public transportation options like our bus system, commuter trains, a light-rail, and of course taxis - the options are endless! I wonder where I’ll be off to next…other than the new ZARA store in Downtown Seattle (I’m SOO excited!). Hope you all had a great weekend!
