Faculty and staff can now drive with pride while supporting student scholarships with the new Seattle University license plates.
The plates are being launched with an auction just in time for the holiday season. Through Dec. 12, Seattle U supporters will have the opportunity to bid on license plate numbers 3 through 25.
"This auction gives faculty and staff the chance to show their pride in Seattle U while also giving back to the students since all proceeds go directly to student scholarships," said Corinne Pann, associate director of Alumni Relations. "We've already seen a lot of activity in our auction and are hoping more of our faculty, staff and supporters will participate in this unique opportunity to claim one of the very first SU license plates. In less than three days, the auction has raised over $14,000 and four license plates have been purchased for full price. So now is the time to bid!"
With proceeds from each plate going to support the Seattle University general scholarship fund, the purchase of an SU plate for you or a family member is really two gifts in one-the gift of student education and an SU plate for your car.
On Jan. 2, Seattle U license plates will be available to the public through the Washington Department of Licensing. As soon as the DOL makes the registration page available, you will be able to pre-order online. Or you can go directly to a DOL office on Jan. 2.
A Seattle U license plate will initially cost $72.75 and you don't need to wait for your current tabs to expire to purchase SU plates.
Show your Seattle U pride: bid now in the auction or buy your SU license plate in January.
