Advice for high school/transfer students: Apply early to your top schools, and come visit campus. Visits are huge! They can give you a great feel for campus life, and also give you an idea of where you’ll spend the next two to four years. Make sure to leave time to see the rest of the city when you visit SPU, because Seattle is a one-of-a-kind place.
