Bloustein Comes to Seattle! November 3rd!


As you may know, will be hosting a graduate and professional schools fair on Monday, November 3rd from 5pm-8pm in the Seattle University, Campion Hall Ballroom (914 E Jefferson St). To that end, in case you have any undergraduate students who may be considering graduate school in the fields of Urban Planning or Public Policy, I wanted to let you know that we will have a representative on site at this fair to answer any questions your students may have.

We ask that you please direct your students to meet with us at the fair on Monday, November 3rd from 5pm-8pm. The Bloustein School offers masters and doctoral degrees in planning and public policy, as well as approximately 15 research institutes working on specific aspects within policy and planning. Should you have some students who are unable to make it to the grad school fair on campus, but who remain interested in obtaining information on our program, please let them know that they can contact me directly with their queries. Additional information can be found on our web site as well:

Recently, we have partnered with in creating a web series of short videos designed to help students better understand the graduate school application process, called GradSchool101. It is a series of 10 short videos that provide tips on everything from financial aid requirements, to choosing the right graduate program, to putting together an effective personal statement, etc. The series can be found here:
