    SEATTLE UNIVERSITY - FORMULATING MY VISION!

    I had applied to Northern Ohio University at about the same time I had applied to Seattle University. My high school GPA of 3.2 worked in my favor and I received an acceptance letter from the Seattle University well before the expected time. The application process required my certified transcripts, financial support document along with an application fee of $55.


    Course Curriculum - 

    Classes are very engaging with some practical sessions and projects conducted every now and then. I find myself working on a number of assignments thereby improving my coding skills. Outside class hours, I occupy myself with clubs and other community services that give me an opportunity to network and build my leadership skills.
