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 visit classes, spend the night in a residence hall, and learn about SPU’s admissions process, financial aid, and more.

Urban Preview is for you, if you are:

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