Training Stars #1 - Logic Puzzles

The first group of trainee astronauts are all sitting around the table, waiting to start their first day of training.

From the clues given below, can work out where everyone sits?

Seat 1 is next to Seat 2 and Seat 8, etc. Seat 5 is across from Seat 1, and Seat 7 is across from Seat 3, etc. Seat 2 is a higher seat number than Seat 1, etc.

William is next to Alisa and Nick.
William is across from George.
Amanda is next to Sarah.
Sarah is across from Eric.
Nick is next to Eric.
Sydney is in Seat 4 and sits next to George.
George has a higher seat number than Sydney.
Alisa is not in Seat 2.

Seat 1 = William
Seat 2 = Nick
Seat 3 = Eric
Seat 4 = Sydney
Seat 5 = George
Seat 6 = Amanda
Seat 7 = Sarah
Seat 8 = Alisa

Reasoning
Sydney is in Seat 4 and is next to George (Clue 6), so George is in either Seat 3 or Seat 5. But George has a higher seat number than Sydney (Clue 7). Therefore, George is in Seat 5.

William is across from George (Clue 2), and therefore is in Seat 1.

William is next to Alisa and Nick (Clue 1), so Alisa and Nick are in Seat 2 and Seat 8 (either way around). But Alisa is not in Seat 2 (Clue 8). Therefore, Alisa is in Seat 8 and Nick is in Seat 2.

Nick is next to Eric (Clue 5) so can only be in Seat 3.

Sarah is across from Eric (Clue 4), and therefore is in Seat 7.

Amanda is next to Sarah (Clue 3) and can only be in Seat 6.
