New and Notable: Rock ‘N’ Roll Mole

From Seattle University’s mascot Rudy the Redhawk:

As a mascot, I definitely understand Mole’s dilemma. It’s never easy stepping out in front of a crowd to perform, even if there is an entire team behind you! When I became the Seattle University mascot in 2000, I was nervous. The university had had a long tradition of excellence in sports before me, and I wasn’t sure I could live up to the hype. But sometimes that first step is the hardest, and I quickly found the support and friendship I needed to represent SU and help cheer our teams to victory.

I chose “Rock ‘N’ Roll Mole” because not only is it a message I can relate to, but I think it’s an important lesson to us all: if we don’t take chances and step out of our shells, we’ll never experience all the fun and excitement that life has the offer! The book also shows how Mole put his friendship with Pig before his own fears, and really stepped up to bat when Pig needed him most. We can accomplish so much if we just remember to express ourselves and that friends are there to support us as we support them. (more…)

Honoring Courage

In 1942, 15 Japanese American students were forced by federal order to leave Seattle University during World War II. Their educations were disrupted by their unjust removal and incarceration. The indignities and injustices they endured can never be undone, but as a university committed to empowering leaders for a just and humane world, Seattle University is compelled to help with the healing process. As part of that, the Seattle University Trustees will grant these students honorary bachelor degrees at the undergraduate commencement ceremony June 12. The exhibit, Honoring Courage, tells the stories of these students and their lives following the incarceration.
