Ana Hernandez Blackstad, '96 Director of Student Advising and Support Services, Cascadia Community College
"I am proud to be a graduate of the Student Development Administration program at Seattle University. Its emphasis on values development combined with a holistic, student-centered view of student services is unique in the world of student affiairs graduate programs. I enthusiastically recommend the program to anyone who is looking for a challenging and fulfilling learning experience."
Kirsten Weber, '07
"The curriculum reflects the faculty's genuine dedication to their students' development - not only as professionals, but also as individuals."
Brian Miller, '98
"I knew I wanted to be in higher education administration but I didn't know how to get started. I was fortunate to find the SDA program at Seattle U. and it gave me what I needed to be prepared to enter into the profession. I learned more than just the theory of student development (and I learned a lot about that!)-- I also experienced my own, personal development through internships, mentoring and network building with exceptional colleagues in the classroom and in the field. And while I had a special interest in admissions as a career, I learned about academic advising, student affairs, financial aid, residential life, strategic planning and higher education law, all of which serve me well in my current position. I can't speak highly enough about the SDA program. It was a transformational experience for me."
John Paul, '08 Resident Director, University of California Berkeley
"The thoughtfulness and intentionality of the SDA curriculum prepared me to also be a thoughtful and intentional professional in working with students and in the field of higher education as a whole. The faculty genuinely invested in me and my professional journey and allowed me to make what I wanted and needed out of the experience."
Colin Stewart, ’08 Director of Student Activities and Leadership Programs, Illinois Wesleyan University
"I was so thankful for my time at Seattle University. I felt as if I experienced what true Jesuit Education was. The faculty and staff really cared about who you were and where you were going. I was also very impressed with the partnership between the Student Development Division and the Student Development Administration program."
Matt Wojciakowski , '06 Student Engagement Coordinator, Carlson Leadership & Public Service Center, Center for Experiential Learning and Diversity, University of Washington
"I learned so much in the S.U. Student Development Administration program and cannot say enough good things about my time there. The program did an excellent job of equipping me with not only the theory and academic understanding of the Student Affairs field, but also with a practical understanding of higher education policies, practices and governance. The leadership and excellence modeled by the SDA program faculty and alumni, coupled with the authentic care for developing strong personal relationships, put the SDA graduate program in a league all it's own. It's Top Notch! "
Krissy Mieszcanski Creager, '09
"The SDA program provides the best of both worlds: a chance to debate, share, learn and grow in a diverse environment full of dedicated professionals, coupled with having the freedom to customize your education while studying under some of the most educated and accessible faculty and administrators in the country."
