Favorite place to grab a cup of coffee in Seattle:

Café Presse on 12th Ave. (with a chocolate croissant!)

Favorite place on Seattle U’s campus: 

Standing in front of sculptor Steve Heilmer’s Gratia Plena (“Full of Grace”) in the Chapel of St. Ignatius.  The sculpture is so inspiring and intriguing.

A piece of advice for a prospective SU student: 

Make time to reflect on what you want out of your college years.  At the risk of being cliché, it really is a journey and not just a destination. (Also, listen to your gut…it’s trying to tell you something.)
