Urban Preview

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

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