I am an accounting major taking online courses, and I have found the overall program to be challenging, but not so difficult that I find myself struggling in my courses. The instructors are always available to help, as long as you plan ahead and give them time to respond to emailed questions. This is the primary method of communication with faculty in the online setting, but some instructors do provide phone numbers to reach them in an emergency situation.
There is great balance in the coursework, amply covering all of the topic areas that will be addressed on the CPA exam. The course material is covered in a variety of ways, as well. A typical course requires written assignments, discussion-type assignments, projects, quizzes, and exams.

This is a school or people who just need to finish their degree or get through their university studies but it doesn't have the social and community aspects many students are hoping to get out of the college experience. The facilities are very safe and provide for my learning needs.

Financial Aid was not really available for my alternative cert program and I am still hoping that the state will approve a grant for me to get some assistance and I have had to work hard to get scholarships on my own with no help for the university.

The places are good but not up to the mark.But availability is good when you need immediately to fill your stomach.

They have a great assortment of subjects that are interesting and desirable.

I was part of the Masters in Teaching program. The professors were excellent. I haven't had a bad class. The workload was manageable. We had to do four internships and student teaching, which was a lot of work, but great experience. Some of the administrators have been less than helpful. I had to get two of my internships on my own. All and all I've had a good experience.

City U at Bellevue didn't have any dining room. The only thing it has is vending machines. The vending machines weren't bad, with a pretty good selection. I think the new downtown Seattle campus may have food service, but I don't know.

City U is geared towards adults, many of whom have full time jobs as well as going to school. Night life in Bellevue isn't very good from what I've heard, but there are a lot of clubs downtown, so if students wanted to drinking after class they could. I don't drink or party, so I'm not the right person to ask about night life.

I rode the bus, so I didn't experience any parking problems. From what I saw the lots were full on weekends, but again I haven't been to the new campus downtown. I would suspect parking there is more difficult than it was in Bellevue, but bus service downtown is great.

There is no Greek Life at City U. There is no on-campus housing. City U is geared toward the older student.

I haven't been to the new facility downtown, but the labs are always empty at the Bellevue campus when I've had class. There seem to be enough computers for the people using them. Also wifi is easily available. I think some of the professors wish it weren't as many students were checking e-mail or Facebook during class.

If you like weather typically between 40-70 degrees F. you'll like Seattle. If you want more snow or sun in the winter, it's not the place for you. People do not drive well when it snows here and sometimes if it hasn't rained for a while Seattlelites tend to forget how to drive (the oil that comes up on the roads doesn't help.) We don't have many thunder storms, but we do have some beautiful views of the mountains on both sides and plenty of nice weather to enjoy the outdoors in the summer.

Washington is a great place to raise children, school system is okay, city university is nation wide thus far. I have had a few set backs but for the most part it is my only option now.

There is only public paid parking available which is ridiculously expensive and also has time restrictions which means you have to watch the time to make sure you move your car so you won't be ticketed.
College Senior 2013-07-06T12:09:20Z
Public transportation is reliable and frequent. Besides public transportation though, everything is within walking distance to the campus. It's a reasonably safe neighborhood and so walking around late at night isn't something to be too concerned with.
College Senior 2013-07-06T12:06:01Z
There are tons of apartments in Beltown, but definitely way out of the average student's price range. You really have to be a full-time working adult to be able to afford to live anywhere remotely close to campus.
College Senior 2013-07-06T12:04:41Z
There is no on campus housing available. CityU doesn't even provide off campus housing at a discount to CityU students like Art Institute does. I think it would increase enrollment if there was campus housing available.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
