When the SU men's basketball team took the court for their 2010-2011 home opener on Nov. 14, a familiar face was leading the opposing team. Joe Callero returned to Seattle after leaving the Redhawks in 2008 to take the helm at Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo. Before tip-off, the former SU coach was acknowledged for his successful eight-year stint at SU. He received a gift and warm wishes from a contingent that included current coach, Cameron Dollar, as well as Athletic Director Bill Hogan and the legendary O'Brien brothers, John and Eddie. The Redhawks lost to the Mustangs, 76-60.  


There's a new pastry at Seattle University. The Popko Fritter is named for University Librarian John Popko in recognition of his incomparable leadership of the Lemieux Library and McGoldrick Learning Commons project, which was dedicated last month. Popko learned of the homage when he was called to a mysterious meeting with Buzz Hofford, director of SU's food service provider Bon Appetit, on Oct. 12. Here's how it all went down.  


On Sept. 30, 2010, the Seattle University community gathered to dedicate the largest investment the 120-year-old institution has ever made in academics - the Lemieux Library and McGoldrick Learning Commons.  


On Sept. 29, Dean David Powers of SU's College of Arts and Sciences joined Army ROTC cadets in rappelling off of the Casey Building.  


The Commons caught up with SU President Stephen Sundborg, S.J., a few days before the 41st annual University Convocation. Father Steve fielded a few questions about his speech, which is always eagerly anticipated and sets the tone for the coming academic year.
