We take part in casual riding and racing throughout the school year. SUCC is founded on a common love of bikes and enjoying time spent on two wheels.
Food With Spirit is a Seattle University group that focuses on sustainable, urban agriculture and food justice in a domestic and global context.

We grow and harvest seasonal food crops for local food banks, host work parties to maintain four raised garden beds on the corner of 13th and Marion, on-campus at Broadway Garden, Chardin Garden and the Potager Garden outside the Student Center.

To be a Buddhist is to be both an ecologist and a conservationist. This is the vision EcoSangha strives to promote. It is a vision modeled on the Buddha as the Great Physician who is called to the service of those in pain and suffering, who scientifically investigates the nature of and prognosis for an ailment and then compassionately effects a cure. The progression from symptom to cure is presented by the Buddha in his fundamental teaching of the Four Noble Truths: symptom, diagnosis, prognosis and cure.

Our framework for understanding and addressing the complicated issue of climate change includes analyses of the science behind greenhouse gas emissions, the interplay of environmental racism and ecological degradation, and economic systems that contribute to climate change.

At Girls on the Run, girls in the 3rd-5th grade and 6th-8th grade participate in an after-school program like no other. Designed to allow every girl to recognize her inner strength, the Girls on the Run curriculum inspires girls to define their lives on their own terms. Physical activity is woven into our program to inspire an appreciation of fitness and to build habits that lead to a lifetime of health. At the end of each three month session, the girls participate in a celebratory Girls on the Run 5k event. Crossing the finish line is a defining moment when the girls realize that even the seemingly impossible IS possible.
Welcome to Seattle University Vegan Society! We are delighted to share information about a vegan diet (which excludes all animal products) and celebrate nature’s abundant offerings with creatively-prepared, delicious vegan dishes. Each month, we’ll be creating a culinary showcase together and savoring the flavors of different regions around the globe together with fellow diners. All are welcome to participate, whether you’re simply curious or fully embrace veganism.
