Autumn 2002 | Volume 25, Number 4 | Campus
Northwest Neighbors Invited to Campus

THIS FALL, 35,000 HOUSEHOLDS in the city of Seattle received a colorful invitation to the 2002–03 Seattle Pacific University Event Series. On the schedule are public lectures, theatre productions, concerts and athletic events. “Our goal is to engage the people of the Northwest in the many events that are happening on the SPU campus,” says Ken Cornell, assistant vice president for marketing and admissions. “There are opportunities here that many people don’t know about.”

Now in its second year, the Event Series features several of SPU’s most popular happenings. The highlighted events are chosen from the University’s full events calendar, says Cornell, to give Seattle Pacific’s neighbors a taste of what’s available to them on campus. Besides its classroom offerings, SPU sponsors events that educate, entertain and engage people from both on and off campus — and the quality of these events is increasing every year.”

Some of this year’s featured events include a lecture on a Christian’s response to AIDS by Tony Campolo; a production of the classic American play Arsenic and Old Lace”; a presentation by the author of Soul Survivor, Philip Yancey; the annual Christmas concert at Benaroya Hall; and Falcon basketball and soccer competitions.

Last year’s inaugural SPU Event Series helped fill auditoriums and bleachers with city neighbors, and event planners expect even more community members to visit campus this year. A second mailing with information about spring events will be mailed in January. For more information or a copy of the autumn brochure, call 206/281-2051.
