Dear fellow alumni, Getting ready for a new academic year is always an exciting time on campus! We have spent much of the summer working on alumni initiatives that will provide programming and communications to help us realize our vision of being a world class alumni relations office and presence for Seattle University. I look forward to a new era in Division I sports and a new year to help us further define programs that will provide professional development, engagement with faculty and of course, meeting a whole new class of Redhawks. I am also very excited to let you know that the Alumni Board of Governors is ready to not only represent you but to help plan an even brighter future for the Alumni Association. We couldn't do what we do without this great organization of volunteer leadership! As we work on developing even more volunteer opportunities, please let us know if you are interested in giving any of your time or talent to Seattle University. Building a strong cadre of volunteer leadership is part of our key initiatives in Alumni Relations. You can contact our office and we will gratefully let you know how you can work with us and support your alma mater. Also you recall that in our spring issue of the SU Magazine, Fr. Steve asked to hear from you about what will make SU more relevant to you. You can send him your feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our alumni are our most treasured resource, and your voice matters.And don't forget to please connect often with the Seattle U Alumni Association online to learn more about the benefits you have as an alumni along with the great schedule of programs in the coming year.Our Seattle University alumni network is growing stronger every day! We are glad so many of you have signed on to our Alumni Online Directory. This resource is critical in realizing our goal of keeping you connected to your alma mater and each other. Please take a moment to log into this valuable resource.Here's to another great year at Seattle U and I look forward to seeing you soon! Susan R. Vosper, '90, '10
This month's featured alumna living the mission is Hilda Guiao (Seattle University 2008), who shares how Jesuit education has shaped her personally and professionally, especially in how it has helped her to stay intentional during challenging times in her life. As Hilda says "I wanted to learn more about my Catholic faith and to be in an environment that fostered and provided a structure to work out my own spiritual journey. Jesuit education offered a way to incorporate what I was learning, apply it, and make connections in my own life." We are grateful to Hilda for sharing her reflection with us and with you.

I am thrilled to be back at Seattle University! It is surreal and humbling to return to a place I respect, love, and admire. I am also fired up to coach this team!
