It is summer in Seattle. Record heat, following record rain! But City University of Seattle continues to be a cool place to be during our sunshine-filled months.
At City University of Seattle, we are all about the finish, and nothing represents that better than the graduation ceremony when students walk across that finish line and receive their diploma jackets.
Our Enactus team competed in the annual Enactus United States National Exposition in Kansas City late last month. At the national competition, more than 100 university teams qualified, and of those, only 16 advanced to the semi-finals, the Sweet 16. CityU was one of the teams. Not only did CityU advance to semi-finals for the first time in school history, our team placed second in its semi-final league, ranking it among the top eight teams in the country.
City University of Seattle is a vibrant education community because of our international students and our international partnerships around the world. It gives students from Seattle to Shenzhen, from Hanoi to Hilltop, from Vancouver to Vancouver, insight into global business and global issues.
We recognize that it is imperative that the university continues to invest in and develop our faculty, because in doing so we give our students a better, more relevant education and experience. The more our faculty learn, the more knowledge they can effectively share with their students.
To celebrate the accomplishments of CityU’s past and present students, we hosted our first academic achievement and alumni reception on February 28 at our main campus in downtown Seattle. During the event we welcomed 140 students, recent graduates and alumni and had the opportunity to recognize their hard work and academic achievements.
