It Says a Lot About Seattle University
From a guest that attended a chemistry conference: "I thought that Seattle U. was a beautiful urban campus. The conference support staff and residence hall staff were so friendly that I felt at home right away. I also liked that we were meeting every day in a "green" building. The accomodations were fine. The food was very good.
"Please pass along my thanks and appreciation to all of the Seattle U. folks for everything. Such consideration and care given to guests who are really complete strangers says a lot about an institution."
