Summer is a Time to Be Neighborly

This month, we highlight our connection to the city of Kenmore and the community.

A ray of sun over the pillars shines on some flowers.
Flowers soak up the summer sun at Bastyr's Kenmore campus.

Sunshine and warm temperatures tend to put smiles on many people’s faces. While these kinds of days may be standard for our San Diego students, faculty and staff, there is no better time than summer to visit our Kenmore campus. Gardens are in full bloom, the days are sunny and long, and the campus is so peaceful, even deer have been known to come out to sample some of our organic garden delicacies. 

We welcome all of our neighbors to campus because no matter what your interests may be, there are myriad reasons to visit Bastyr University.

City of Kenmore Summer Concert Series

Bastyr is a proud sponsor of the city of Kenmore’s annual summer concert series at neighboring St. Edward State Park beginning July 11. These free Thursday evening performances are sure to bring out the crowds, and are a great chance to meet your neighbors.

Soccer Camp in Full Swing

Once again, the sights and sounds of soccer are on display on our athletic fields. Located near our award-winning Student Village and our medicinal herb garden, the fields were renovated in 2011 with the city of Kenmore’s assistance and feature a self-repairing and eco-friendly species of grass. Soccer’s next superstar may be among the hundreds of kids who spend time on the pitch and sometimes, even a soccer legend stops by to say hello.

Special Deals at Bastyr Center

Right now is a great time to visit Bastyr Center for Natural Health, the teaching clinic of Bastyr University, located in Seattle’s Wallingford neighborhood. Summer specials include our very popular $20 Well-Child Visits (which include a free bottle of children’s vitamins) as well as $15 Counseling Visits. Both deals run through the end of August, so make sure you take advantage of these top-notch clinical services for a discounted price.

Congrats to Colorado!

Finally, we send our heartfelt congratulations to our friends in the natural medicine field in the Rocky Mountain state, which recently passed a law recognizing naturopathic doctors. Colorado is now the 17th state in the nation, along with the District of Columbia, to provide legal recognition for naturopathic doctors. A win for all of us in the natural health community!

July is a great time of year at Bastyr University in Kenmore. We welcome all our neighbors to stop by and experience all we have to offer during the summer months.



In health,

Daniel K. Church, PhD

Bastyr University President
