Conversations Magazine Lunch on ?Mission Integration?
Monday, Oct. 27, noon-1:15 p.m.
Student Center 130
The Office of Jesuit Mission and Identity invites you to a lunch and a ?Conversation on Conversations? with Pat Howell, S.J., Distinguished Professor in the Institute for Catholic Thought and Culture, and Connie Kanter, vice president for finance and business affairs. Father Howell and Kanter both have articles in the most recent Conversations in Jesuit Higher Education magazine, which takes up the theme of ?Mission Integration.? They will address how Seattle University integrates its Jesuit mission into its decision-making, works with students and cares for one another as a community, as well as how the influence of Pope Francis, a Jesuit, is an inspiration for our work together in Jesuit higher education. A light lunch will be served. RSVP to Eddie Salazar at jesuitidentity@seattleu.edu.

Women?s Golf Hosts Pat Lesser Harbottle Invitational
The Seattle University women?s golf team will host the inaugural Pat Lesser Harbottle Invitational next Monday and Tuesday, October 13 and 14, at the Tacoma Country and Golf Club in Lakewood, Wash. The Redhawks will welcome 12 other intercollegiate teams to play on one of the top courses in the region. The Washington Huskies are coming off a convincing victory at their own tournament at Sahalee Country Club this past week, but they will receive competition from schools such as Washington State, Portland State, Idaho, Cal Poly and Eastern Washington. This will also be a good look into how Seattle U compares with its conference foes, as WAC members Grand Canyon and Missouri-Kansas City will be competing. The tournament is named in honor of Pat Lesser Harbottle ?55, the first female to ever play on a men?s collegiate golf team as well as the winner of numerous amateur tournaments across the country. Spectators are welcome to watch the two-day competition as the teams are scheduled to play 36 holes Monday and 18 holes Tuesday, with an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start each day. Come down to Lakewood and support the Redhawks!
