we welcome you as important members of our community.
As you know, college is a critical time of growth and
development. At Seattle University, students have every opportunity—both in and
out of class—to stretch intellectually, personally, and spiritually. We want
students to take full advantage of Seattle University’s transformative Jesuit
During their time at SU, we want students to:
with mentors and peers;
themselves to move beyond their comfort zones;
and integrate their experiences; and
to living out their values, gifts, and talents.
Please join us in ensuring that your student gets the most
out of Seattle University. Your involvement in the Seattle University community
is critical to the overall success of the university and to the quality
education of your student. We applaud your participation and look forward to
getting to know you!
We value our relationship with you, and have provided this
website for you. Here you will find everything—from transition issues and
on-campus resources, to where to stay when you visit campus—you need to help
you be successful in your role as the parent of an SU student. If you need
