Students who are adventurous, forward-thinking, creative and have an interest in social justice are drawn to Seattle University, located in the heart of a city with unparalleled access to innovation and culture.
Seattle has produced some of the world's most prestigious and influential companies such as Microsoft, Starbucks, Amazon and Costco. This urban setting is where all walks converge to find a better way forward. Seattle University is a school of action with an ever-growing impact on the city, the community and throughout the world.
The greatest successes at Seattle University are the result of people coming together and standing united to bring about great change. A good example: The Seattle University Youth Initiative, the university's largest-ever community engagement project, which continues to grow as it transforms academic achievement at the city's most underperforming public elementary school. The lure of the Youth Initiative is compelling-so much so that an increasing number of incoming students say it's the top reason they choose to come to SU. Worldwide, other universities-20 and counting -see the Youth Initiative as a successful prototype. The White House took notice, too, and honored the Youth Initiative with several awards for community service in each of the last three years.
In a state like Washington, where dozens of different languages are spoken and every race, religion and perspective is represented, Seattle University's 4,500 undergraduate students from 53 states and 89 nations fit right in.
A transformation happens when you're a student here. A Seattle University education instills in you a lifelong capacity to create a more just and humane world.
