COVID-19 Brings Challenges and New Opportunities

Posted by The Seattle University Alumni Association on Thursday, April 2, 2020 at 10:33 AM PDT

Throughout these unprecedented times, Seattle University has kept the health, safety and well-being of our students and the university community paramount. Since we last communicated about our COVID-19 response, President Stephen Sundborg, S.J., released a video message, calling on us to “look out for one another and care for one another.” Watch the video.  

Faculty are busy preparing to teach virtually when the quarter starts on Monday, April 6 and staff across campus are working to create engaging experiences for students and alumni for our current reality. As Fr. Steve said, “While this is a time we need to keep our distance physically, it is as important as ever that we stay connected.”

Despite these challenging times, the Seattle University Alumni Association is building programming options that will cultivate robust virtual communities where you can engage with the SU alumni community both near and far. Check our website regularly and stay connected to us via Facebook, TwitterInstagram or LinkedIn to get programmatic updates.
