  • SU Rolls Out Red Carpet for Notable Visitors

    SU VisitorsWho says the summers are slow at Seattle University? Not last week! In the span of four days, the university played host to a nationally renowned nun, a soccer team considered by many to be the best in the world and a broadcaster with an inspiring personal story. (And that's to say nothing of the hundreds of incoming freshmen and their families who were visiting for Summer in Seattle orientation.) 

    Thursday, July 14:  In town for a “friendly” game against the Seattle Sounders, Manchester United was in need of a place to practice, and Seattle University gladly obliged by offering Championship Field. After their evening practice on the 14th, which attracted quite a throng of onlookers, the 19-time English League champions made another appearance at Championship Field to hold a soccer clinic for Special Olympics athletes (right) on July 19, the evening before their match against the Sounders.  

    Friday, July 15: ABC News Correspondent Bob Woodruff visited Seattle University on July 15 to deliver a talk on homeless veterans. Woodruff was seriously injured by a roadside bomb while reporting in Iraq in 2006. He returned to work after an arduous 13-month recovery and today is a leading figure in raising awareness for the plight of our nation’s veterans.
