Rising star Kaylee Best knows what it’s like to be a student-athlete of note. She says students and faculty congratulate her for wins on campus and get her amped up for games—the support is overwhelming and always encourages her.
But the best part is simply being a student at Seattle University. Professors help her manage her schoolwork with her athletics schedule and navigate potential career paths she can pursue alongside basketball. Seattle University, its students and faculty are all more than just supporters of her team, they’re family. When Kaylee’s standing on the court listening to them chant “We are SU,” she has the backing of thousands on her team.
