New Students Engage the Culture



What is CityQuest?

CityQuest Banner


One of the highlights of Orientation, CityQuest allows incoming SPU students to engage the culture through community service.

CityQuest’s purpose is to introduce new students to SPU’s commitment to “engaging the culture” through service-learning. 


With their classmates, new students will spend the day in service to a Seattle-area non-profit organization, learning about the organization’s role in our community and ways students can continue their involvement throughout the school year.
