Seattle Pacific University 2019-20 Application Essay Question Explanations 

The Requirements: 1 essay of 250-500 words 

Supplemental Essay Type(s): Why

Please respond to the following topic (in 250-500 words) 

At Seattle Pacific, we encourage all students to explore or go deeper in Christian faith and to be inspired to make a difference. SPU’s vision means that you can pursue an education that helps you change the world for the better. How does Seattle Pacific’s vision align with your desires for college? How does your own faith perspective or personal story intersect with our vision?

Though the two questions at the end seem similar, they are asking for two different answers. The first one focuses on what you’re looking for in a college experience and how their mission statement checks those boxes. Take some time to read over the linked material carefully and take note of what inspires you. Does their “transformative experience” incite thoughts of not only learning academically, but also spiritually? Moving on to the second question, they want to know who you are and how your life intersects with their goals. Did you go on a spring break mission trip that taught you about service? Have you taken to memorizing scripture as a daily devotional act? Take some time to reflect on who you are, what you stand for, and why they’d be lucky to have you.
