Thanks, Natch Ohno, S.J., (Student Development) for sharing these pictures from commencement and showcase our students' unusual ways of getting around on the big day, whether on wheels or on (winged) foot.

Another deskmate

Thanks to Chuck Porter for submitting this photo of a rather menacing figure that resides on his desk. Word has it that Chuck's little friend here helps to ward off technical glitches.

Staying on top of that reading?

Posted on Monday, June 08, 2015


As announced in April, the School for New and Continuing Studies will take up residence on second floor of the Law School Annex. To make the space available, the law school moved its student publications back into a renovated space in the law library of Sullivan Hall.

In the process, 15,000 volumes of law reports were discarded. Matilda Schroeter, a junior environmental studies major who works in Facilities, is seen here atop one of the dumpsters of the law reports before they were recycled.

In other recycling news… Did you know that that the university donates or recycles an average total of 40 tons of material not needed by students during Move Out? The university donates four tons of clothing to Northwest Center, a ton of books go to the Friends of the Seattle Library, seven tons of household goods are given to St. Vincent De Paul, a half ton of nonperishable food is given to Northwest Harvest, and 30 tons of paper and plastic is sent to be sorted and remade into new products. Also, 500 pounds of personal care items such as unopened shampoo and household cleaners that otherwise would go to the landfill are given to Real Change newspaper vendors. All of the material is collected between the first day of finals and Commencement, only 6 days! 

If you have questions or comments contact Matthew Benedict, recycling coordinator and compost technician, at 296-6459.

Thanks to Dean Forbes (media relations specialist) for the photo and Matthew Benedict (Facilities) and Kelly Kunsch (law librarian) for the information.

Spring shots

Posted on Tuesday, April 07, 2015

When The Commons invited readers to send in shots of spring break or spring, our telecommuting colleague Doug Duncan (Office of University Counsel) reminded us, as pictured below, that spring has not necessarily visited his town of Madison, Wis.


Meanwhile, back on the mother ship, Annemarie Riese (Project Lead the Way in the College of Science and Engineering) snapped this shot from her office. (Hang in there, Doug--your day will come!)


Lest we get too carried away, Pat Howell, S.J., of the Institute for Catholic Thought and Culture brings us back down to earth with this picture that depicts the other (rainy) side of spring at SU.
