Urban Preview 

Join us at Seattle Pacific University to experience college life. Urban Preview is a free overnight event for senior high school students from groups traditionally underrepresented in higher education.

At Urban Preview, you will have the opportunity to finish your college application, visit classes, spend the night in a residence hall, and learn about SPU’s admissions process, financial aid, and more.

Urban Preview: November 6-7th, 2016

Urban Preview is for you, if you are:

  • A senior in high school
  • A first-generation college student and/or a student from a diverse community 
  • Serious about college and curious about diversity at SPU
  • Interested in experiencing life as an SPU student

Check out this tentative Urban Preview schedule.
