“As a Jesuit university, we believe in educating the whole person—mind, body, spirit—so it is about a holistic approach to education,” says Provost Shane P. Martin. “Our curriculum and character stretch far beyond the classroom and into the world that surrounds us.”

It’s all rooted in Jesuit education, which goes beyond just acquiring knowledge— it’s what you do with that knowledge that is just as important.

Spend your spring working with an NGO in India. Your summer interning for a Fortune 500 company in downtown Seattle. Your evenings hanging out where music fans first discovered Nirvana. Indulge your ad venturous spirit, get your hands dirty and become invested in the community as you enrich the lives of everyone you meet. It all begins here at Seattle University. That first class. That first student club. That moment when you and your peers look around and realize that in a city so full of culture and history, you are prepared to make a difference.

Seattle University students make a meaningful impact on the world. They’re future focused, fearlessly exceptional and brimming with passion and purpose. They balance self-reliance with interde pendence, knowledge with spirituality. And bravely question accepted norms to advance our understanding of the world.

GET TO KNOW STEPHEN How has your involvement with the Association for Computer Machinery (ACM) helped you find your place at Seattle U? I joined ACM during my first year at Seattle University to hone my programming skills. Being a member has helped me notice my identity extends beyond programming. I realized I have a natural inclination to serve my peers. After founding a personal project competition and becoming the ACM president, I learned that I’m a programmer and a leader. What drew you to Seattle U? I thrive in small communities where I can make a difference. I chose Seattle U because I wanted to have relationships with my professors and a reliable community of peers. What do you like most about Seattle U? I enjoy the ability to step off campus and into the city where there are so many places to explore and eat.

Favorite food: Fried rice! Dream job: Automating routine human tasks through programming. I hope to work as a project manager or entrepreneur and make products that save people time.

Favorite singer: Bruno Mars Favorite place to relax on campus: I enjoy sitting at the Union Green on a sunny day and reading in the Library's Wyckoff Reading Room on a rainy day.

STEPHEN WALLEN CLASS OF 2022 COMPUTER SCIENCE MAJOR LIBRARY TECHNICIAN AT MEDIA PRODUCTION CENTER FROM HONOLULU, HI “I was introduced to programming during my senior year of high school and was hungry for further exposure. I was thrilled to be admitted into the Computer Science department at Seattle University to start my professional development as soon as possible. I appreciate that my professors are enthusiastic about contributing to both my personal and professional development.”

Favorite place to hang out in Seattle: The dog park in downtown Seattle.

Outside of the classroom, Hultgren enjoys exploring Seattle and Washington state with her family, along with cooking and dining both at home and around the city. She loves crabbing and clamming, which she says is a good way to combine her loves of cooking, eating and marine biology.


CLASSES TAUGHT BY FACULTY (not TA’s or graduate students)


AVERAGE NUMBER OF STUDENTS PER CLASS Kristin Hultgren, PhD, teaches and studies marine species diversity using both ecological and evolutionary tools. Locally, she is involved in several studies examining ecological patterns in crustacean biodiversity in the Puget Sound. Like many classes in the Biology Department, students in Associate Professor Hultgren’s courses often conduct hands-on research during labs. Emphasizing the “how” of biology in re search-based labs allows students to learn by making mistakes, modifying techniques and reevaluating hypotheses.

Hultgren, who joined Seattle U in 2012, teaches courses at sev eral different levels in the Biology Department. “I love the ‘aha’ moment when they can apply a concept they learned in my class to solve a problem in biology,” she says. Much of her research is collaborative, involving faculty and un dergraduate and graduate students from around the world. This was evident during a recent lab at the new Jim and Janet Sinegal Center for Science and Innovation, which offer modern labs in a state-of-the-art facility. She enjoys this approach because it allows students “to see themselves as participants—rather than just observers—in the community of science.”

Hultgren says one of the most rewarding aspects of teaching at Seattle U is the effect the Jesuit mission has on the type of students we attract and their attitude toward their education. “Our students,” Hultgren says, “are strongly committed to social justice and to making a difference in their communities.”



“By doing this, they start to view themselves as a professional scientist. Developing the technical and analytical skills needed to conduct research helps prepare students for a professional life beyond college. Plus, it’s a lot of fun.”

Seattle truly is a city like no other. It’s where some of the most forward-thinking people in the world come to live and work and where students who aspire to shine in the Emerald City come to forge new paths.

When you’re living, learning and playing at Seattle University, a day in the life presents the opportunities of a lifetime.

“Embracing diversity of opinions was one of the most important lessons I learned from Seattle University to help me be an empathetic product manager. When working on products that millions of customers use every day and collaborating with many engineering and product teams, it is crucial to be inclusive in meetings and in product design. Seattle University helps you build the soft skill set to flex that empathy by questioning assumptions and voicing opinions.
