We're All About the Finish - CityU students finish at twice the national rate

Bellevue, WA – September 20, 2012 – In an ongoing effort to resourcefully address budget restraints and students’ needs, City University of Seattle, a not-for-profit university, announced today a partnership with OfficeMax® Incorporated, a leader in office supplies and services, to provide students and alumni with significant savings off thousands of school and office products.

The five-year partnership provides the university’s students and alumni with exclusive access to CityU’s contract pricing on thousands of OfficeMax products online and at OfficeMax stores nationwide. The partnership also provides CityU with furniture and office solutions for its new campus and headquarters in downtown Seattle which will open January 2013.

“CityU is committed to finding ways we can better serve our community and be of service. We see this as an opportunity to create new revenue streams and minimize costs by developing an end-to-end solution through innovative thinking and relationship building,” said Christopher Ross, vice president for University Advancement at City University of Seattle. “OfficeMax is a solution provider that will enable CityU to maximize efficiencies; we’re thrilled to partner with them!”

In addition to offering CityU’s community discounts, OfficeMax will provide CityU with janitorial products, branded promotional items, technology services, furniture and printing solutions at a discounted rate as CityU begins to move into their new headquarters and urban campus located at 521 Wall Street in Seattle.

CityU and OfficeMax will continue to explore additional opportunities and ways to collaborate.
