While summer can be a slow season for many campus areas, it is a time that Event Sales and University Events ramp up and serve approximately 40 overnight programs.

Each week, Event Sales will send an update on the groups you can expect to see at Seattle University. In the upcoming few weeks, you may see guests around campus from the following programs:
