I am proud to be a member of the Seattle University Redhawk community. My return to Seattle has been blessed with rewards: being near family and friends; living in the Pacific Northwest; discovering what it means to be part of a Jesuit University; coming to know the outstanding faculty, staff, and students of the College of Nursing; and discovering the joys of being part of an urban campus committed to making a difference in our community.
