Spring Orientation

Spring Orientation is Friday, March 24, 2023 from 11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. This program is required for all new Spring Quarter students and includes greetings from campus leaders, meeting Orientation Leaders, academic inductions, and learning how to get involved on campus. Students will receive more details about Spring Orientation and an RSVP link on March 1st in a message sent to their Seattle U email.

In addition, you will be added to our Spring Orientation group on Canvas, SU’s online learning system. This series of transition modules will help you learn about SU’s Jesuit tradition, how to make connections on campus, and important academic, wellness, and financial information.
