Valedictory Address

Each year we celebrate two outstanding graduating students, one undergraduate and one graduate, with the Archbishop G. Raymond Hunthausen Award. The award celebrates students for their leadership, academic excellence, and faith.

Each recipient is invited to deliver the valedictory address at their respective Commencement Ceremony. This is a unique opportunity to share your experience and insights, inspire your fellow graduates, and leave a legacy at Seattle University.

For information about the ceremonies, other graduation events, apparel, etc., please visit the Commencement Site.
