Leslie Ikeda

Graduate Coordinator, The Commuter Link

Building/Room: PAVL 150

Pronouns: she/her/hers

I am a proud 206-Seattle local where the mountains, evergreen trees, and rainy seasons have always been my home. I received my bachelor's degree from the University of Washington in American Ethnic Studies and was a commuting student throughout my time as an undergrad. Post-graduation, I felt strongly about remaining connected to the institution that had given me so much heartache while also many opportunities as a first-generation college student. My time there would be committed to academic support and student success and ultimately fuel my interest for pursuing a Master's degree at Seattle U's Student Development & Administration program. As the Commuter Link Coordinator, I am excited to support the engagement of our commuter student community and help students get connected to campus despite a busy and tight commuter schedule. Outside the office, you'll find me in the company of my two cats, Kaelo and Miyu, coaching my youth basketball girls team, or enjoying Seattle's delicious food and coffee scene with my partner.
