Academic Excellence

Sullivan Scholars are students of distinguished academic achievement. We employ a holistic definition of academic excellence, one that focuses on the students' intellectual curiosity and the educational challenges they have embraced. We consider the academic opportunities available to applicants and whether they have taken full advantage of them.

We look for students who see academic achievement as going beyond the classroom and incorporating parallel educational experiences in athletics, the arts, student government and community service. Click on the links below for challenging academic opportunities at Seattle University.
