Illuminating the World Around Us
A Seattle University education not only prepares you to make a difference in the world, it provides you the opportunities to make the world better and even a little brighter. Seniors in the Electrical Engineering program did just that by being part of the award-winning Muhuru Bay Microgrid Project. Working alongside professional engineers, they created a micro-grid system to provide sustainable electricity for a rural village in Kenya, Africa.
To know more. Do more. And be more. Because here we dare.
We believe the sharpest minds are well-rounded. Educating mind, body and spirit is not multiple choice—it's the Jesuit way. At Seattle University, we dare to become greater than the sum of our parts, to impact locally and shape our global environment. From the heart of Seattle and its innovative and forward-thinking culture, we dare to know more, do more and be more.
SPEAK LOUDER THAN ACTIONS
For Hollis Wong-Wear, spoken word was more of an interest and less of a career path. But one of her professors recognized her talent and encouraged her to explore outside her comfort zone. Hollis made an impression within the Seattle hip hop and rap scenes—most notably with recording artists Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. Their collaboration on The Heist resonated with audiences so loudly that the album won several Grammy awards.
