Micah Lund knows what it takes to get involved. During his freshman year, he got connected to the Urban Involvement program through the Neighborhood House program in South Seattle. Once a week, this Visual Communication major spent an afternoon with a group of SPU Somali students tutoring refugee children.
Since then, the senior from Vancouver, British Columbia, has served as a peer counselor with the Center for Career and Calling, and also spent a summer teaching English in China.
But at the end of the day he also knows how to relax and have fun. Tradition, SPU’s annual outdoor Christmas party, is his favorite. As he describes it, “that’s where you get the chance to pull out your ugly Christmas sweater, grab a mug of hot chocolate, and hang out in SPU’s Tiffany Loop with friends.”
What else does he like about SPU? “Small class sizes, passionate faculty, an urban setting, and the cookies in Gwinn Commons.”
