Snowpocalypse 2012

Posted on Tuesday, February 14, 2012

A big thanks to the faculty and staff who shared their pictures from last month's snowstorm. Here they are...

RussLidman_SnowRuss Lidman, emeritus professor in the Institute of Public Service, writes:  "Raven (law professor) and I had two feet of snow on the ground when the ice storm hit early morning of Jan. 19. It was two more days before we could drive out. It was icepocalypse that did the major damage in Olympia. Of course, our power was out--the ice took down tree trunks and branches--and the lines as well.  The snapping of the trees sounded like rifle fire.

  

ChuckPorter_PioneerSquareChuck Porter, chief information officer, sent in this shot taken in Pioneer Square as the snow fell.

 

AmyLane_Ice on treesAmy Lane, gift and data integrity coordinator in University Advancement, contributed this beauty.

 

LizPilati_DogandSledHere's one from Liz Pilati, executive secretary to the president. (Great picture, although we're not sure if Liz managed to get the dog to pull her on that sled...)

BookFest2012Jim Martin_Main"Colbert Chaplain" James Martin, S.J., center, with School of Theology and Ministry Dean Mark Markuly, left, and President Stephen Sundborg, S.J., joined Mary Oliver as keynote speaker at STM's fourth annual Search for Meaning Book Festival on Feb. 4. A record-setting crowd of 2,500 flocked to SU for a chance to interact with 40-plus authors and consider questions most fundamental to the human condition.

Gratitude is extended to departments and colleagues across the Seattle University campus, without whose support the 2012 Festival would have not been possible: Faculty, staff and students of the School of Theology and Ministry, School of Law, Albers School of Business and Economics, University Advancement, Human Resources, Bon Appétit, Conference and Event Services, ITCS – Classroom and Event Tech Support, Facilities, Public Safety and Reprographics.
