Student Stories

Initially, SPU wasn’t at the top of her potential college list. But everything changed when she visited campus and began talking with the admissions staff.

She first heard about SPU from a family friend, then toured SPU as a pit stop on a family road trip during her junior year of high school.

For Nikhil, there’s much more to SPU than just basketball. He knew it would be a “no-brainer” for him to come to Seattle. 

At first, Alli had no idea which career direction she wanted to pursue after graduation. Gradually, something began to change.

Melanie was looking for something beyond a traditional “college town.” Seattle Pacific connected her to a world much bigger than herself.
