We are excited that your student has chosen to become a Redhawk! This can be just as much of a transition for you as it is for your student.
During New Student Orientation you will have an opportunity to participate in sessions that are tuned into information and resources that are particularly helpful for families + supporters during this transition.
Review past content for families + supporters below and check back for new content during orientation 2021.
After your Redhawk gets settled in, you may have some more questions or need additional resources. Our Parent and Family Engagement Department will be happy to help and can be found HERE.

Involvement outside the classroom is vital to the Seattle U student experience and adds a dynamic element to the university’s core values of Academic Excellence, Diversity, Service, Leadership, Justice, and Faith. The Center for Student Involvement (CSI) supports over 100 student-led clubs and orgs and students can check out these opportunities and get involved through the CSI’s online platform ConnectSU. SU’s Center for Community Engagement serves as the main entry point for students who want to engage in the local community. This includes service-learning opportunities, university-assisted community schools, direct service, community-based advocacy, and more.
For questions about health care on campus, health insurance, immunization requirements, and more, please visit the Student Health Center web page. You may also contact the Center at email@example.com and 206-296-6300.
