Modernizing the World from Our Corner of It

Seattle truly is an international city like few others. It’s an entrepreneurial playground where global points of view, leading-edge tech, popular culture and legendary coffee blend together every day—with the wonders of nature all around you. U.S. News and World Report called it one of the "Top 10 Best Places to Live in U.S." Like so many game-changing companies, you’ll simply call it home.

Alumni Profile


Juris Doctorate
School of Law

First marriage, then law school. That’s what Angeline Overturf Thomas, ’11, and Stephan Thomas, ’11, decided would be the order of things after a whirlwind, long-distance romance interrupted their respective plans for law school. At the time, neither of them lived in Seattle nor knew much about the city. But the School of Law’s social justice mission was the beacon that drew them to start a new life together in the Pacific Northwest. Now at home in Seattle with their young son, they credit the law school with helping to launch their careers. More importantly, they say, the school’s mission was fundamental in shaping the lawyers they have become.
