This Tuesday, January 3, 2017, Antioch University Seattle opened for classes at our new location, 2400 Third Avenue, Suite 200, Seattle, WA 98121. Faculty and staff, including work study students, joined together to move our university into its high-tech, design-forward new facility over the last weeks of 2016, pausing only for the winter holiday closure.
Our new campus comes with a mix of the familiar and the unfamiliar. For example, we have retained our beloved, mirrored, mosaic pig Ms. Coco, and student group AUS GROW will continue to tend garden beds on campus, which are now located on the campus terrace outside of our new library. However, we have also gained exciting new technology in our classrooms and study rooms, as well as a phenomenal increase in natural light, thanks to our many floor-to-ceiling windows.
The new AUS campus is also located near many major bus lines and a great deal of city parking, making it easy for our students, faculty, staff, and visitors to get to and from school. The Antioch University Seattle campus will continue to be a cultural hub and meeting place for our progressive community, and we will use our central location and green, modern presence to stand strong, in line with our values, throughout 2017 and beyond.
