Why I'm Choosing SPU

I'm interested in SPU because I want to leave Oregon and see new places, while also staying in the Pacific Northwest. Not only do I really like the city of Seattle but I felt extremely comfortable and safe on the campus. The community at SPU was very welcoming and one of my top priorities when choosing a college is that they have a faith based community- which SPU does. I also had the chance to sit it on some classes there and I thoroughly enjoyed how they were taught as well as the atmosphere in each classroom. As an added bonus the food on campus was delicious as well as the plethora of restaurants surrounding the campus and throughout the city of Seattle.
