Seattle Pacific University
Each year Seattle University, University of Puget Sound, Pacific Lutheran University, and Seattle Pacific University bring together their honors students for the annual Honors NW Research Symposium. Students from each university submit current research for peer consideration, and selected papers are presented on panels chaired by faculty from all four institutions. The four students from SPU presenting this year are Joe Heindel, Michaela Rubinstein, Justin Ramsey, and Kira Arias-La Rheir.
The research presented is interdisciplinary, with students in the social sciences, STEM, humanities, art, political science, education and economics presenting. Panels will focus on:
- Technology and Material Culture
- Gender and Philosophy of the Self
- Pedagogy, History and Sectarianism
- Aesthetics and Ethics of Selfhood
All are welcome to attend.

Dr. Jennifer Maier is putting the finishing touches on the English Department’s Art and Incarnation study abroad trip in Rome this coming June. Some students may have questions about the program—about coursework, daily activities, lodging, costs, etc.
If so, the first, informal INFO SESSION will take place next THURSDAY, Nov. 3rd, at 5:30 in the Marston Conference Room (Room 252). This first meeting will be very brief (a half-hour), making it easy to attend.
If you can’t make that meeting, don’t worry. Other info sessions will be offered throughout this and early next quarter, before the application deadline in late January.
Finally, it’s really helpful for planning and budget purposes to get a close estimate of the number of applicants as early as possible. IF YOU ALREADY KNOW YOU INTEND TO APPLY, please let Dr. Maier know by email as soon as possible.

Learn to facilitate poetry that changes lives!
REGISTER TODAY FOR SEATTLE TRAINING, OCT. 8TH
We think you’ll enjoy this day with Pongo, learning our trauma-informed techniques for helping youth and adults to write poetry about their difficult experiences. In 1,205 surveys, 100% of our authors report enjoying their writing experience, 75% report using poetry to express themselves on topics they don’t normally discuss, and 82% report feeling better after writing. Over one-third of our writers have written only a little or not at all before Pongo. Poetry is a way of engaging people, in an open and powerful way, about painful events that affect them deeply. The training is appropriate for counselors, teachers, artists, and anyone who wants to see change in the world and for themselves. People from out of state are welcome to attend using a scholarship.
