New Student Immersions

  • September 16-18, 2015


    Immersion Registration is now CLOSED.


     Sign up for the Fall 2015 New Student Immersions will begin in Late June 2015.  At this time all trips are tentative and subject to change.

    Hey New Redhawks! Are you just itching to start your SU experience? Would you like to meet other incoming students before Welcome Week begins? Well, you're in luck! Seattle University's New Student and Family Programs Office organizes several pre-Welcome Week Immersion Trips for incoming first year students.

    Trips are mandatory for any student who was unable to attend Summer in Seattle and then opened up to other incoming students. These two-day, overnight experiences will introduce you to your new surroundings, allow you to enjoy the beauty of the Pacific Northwest or develop leadership skills as you enjoy the company and conversation of other new students. Each trip will be lead by an SU staff or faculty member and an upper division student.

    The online sign up form for the 2015 New Student Immersions will begin in late June . Space is limited and reservations are taken on a first come, first served basis. Each activity has been designated for different ability levels, so please select the one best suited for you and your interests.

    Each trip costs $60, and the student participation fee will be included on your fall quarter bill. Scholarships are available for each activity. If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call at 206.296.2525.

    If you are living in the residence halls, you will move into your room the morning of Wednesday, September 16th, before departing for your Immersion Trip. All immersions will return to campus on Friday in time for students to participate in our Welcome Week Orientation program.

    International Students will participate in the New Beginning Program in September, which serves as your make-up orientation. You should contact the International Student Center to confirm which orientation you should attend. Sign up information is available here. You are able to participate in both the New Beginning Program and a New Student Immersion program if you wish.

    Matteo Ricci College Students will be unable to participate in a New Student Immersion program due to your mandatory orientation session on Friday, September 18th, which conflicts with immersion programs.
