From our friends at Queen Anne View

For World Autism Awareness Day, Seattle Pacific University joined other institutions around the world for the Light It Up Blue campaign. Light It Up Blue, in its third year, is a unique global initiative by Autism Speaks to help raise awareness about autism. Landmarks around the world, such as the Empire State Building in New York, participated to promote World Autism Awareness Day.

SPU’s iconic Demaray Clock Tower, located at 509 West Bertona Street, will be bathed in blue lights for the next few days in honor of Light It Up Blue.

SPU students volunteer at Lawton

September 25th, 2009 by Sara

UPDATE:  Twenty one SPU students were hard at work today at Magnolia’s Lawton School, putting in over 100 hours of weeding, pruning, mulching, raking and sweeping.  They completely spruced up the grounds of the school.  (Thanks Scott for the photos!)

To top off their day, they headed up into the Lawton Ravine with 25 gallons of water for the many cedar and fir trees that SPU students had planted in years past on “CityQuest” service days.

Nearly 800 Seattle Pacific University students will start off the new school year by spending their first day in college volunteering all over the city. From 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 26, students will lead volunteers groups to fix up houses, clean parks, remove graffiti and participate in other projects at 30 different locations around town, as part of SPU’s “CityQuest,” an annual community service orientation. Volunteers will be working in Magnolia cleaning up Lawton School.  They will work on the grounds of the school, weeding and doing general yardwork and clean up.  For a list of citywide projects, click here
