My 2 Cents' WorthHow is SPU’s Christian identity played out on campus?
All staff and faculty at SPU are Christian and are great resources for discussion and support. We offer worship services, and our vision statement, “Engaging the culture, changing the world,” means that we want to encourage all of our students to use their gifts and talents to improve the world around them. Students are not required to be Christian, and students from other backgrounds also have great experiences here.
What should I do senior year to stand out to admissions counselors?
Make sure to get all of your application requirements in by our November 15 Early Action deadline. That deadline doesn’t commit you to SPU but if your application is completed by then, you get priority on your admissions decision, housing selection, and financial aid package. Also, feel free to call our office and request an interview so we can get to know you better.
Should I take the SAT, the ACT, or both?
I recommend taking both the SAT and the ACT once, and then taking the one you were stronger in at least a second time.
