Seattle University (SU) is a Jesuit Catholic university located in the First Hill neighborhood of Seattle, Washington, USA.[2][3][4] SU is the largest independent university in the Northwest with over 7,500 students enrolled in undergraduate and graduate programs within eight schools, and is one of 28 member institutions of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities. U.S. News & World Report, in its "Best Colleges 2011," ranked Seattle University 6th out of schools in the West that offer a full range of master's and undergraduate programs.[5]



In 1891, Fathers Victor Garrand, S.J., and Adrian Sweere, S.J., took over a small parish near downtown Seattle at Broadway and Madison. At first, the school was named after the surrounding Immaculate Conception parish and did not offer higher education. In 1898, the school was named Seattle College after both the city and Chief Seattle, and it granted its first bachelor's degrees 11 years later. Initially, the school served as both a high school and college. From 1919 to 1931, the college moved to Interlaken Blvd, but in 1931 it returned to First Hill permanently. In 1931, Seattle College created a "night school" for women in order to allow them to attend; this was a highly controversial decision at the time.[6][7]
