Open the school year by dancing the night away at SEAC's annual ‘80s Dance. Dress up and dance to mix of 80s and current music. Held on campus, the ‘80s Dance is the capstone to Welcome Week and a great way to de-stress from moving in. Legwarmers, spandex, neon colors, and big hair are encouraged.
Fall Ball is SEAC's annual semi-formal dance. Hundreds of students dress up and go out on the town for a night of music, dancing, laughter, and fun. Put on your dancing shoes and dance the night away in one of Seattle's beautiful venues.
Battle of the Bands ("BOB"), SEAC's winter-quarter event, showcases student bands in a competition for various prizes and bragging rights. Up to a dozen student bands go up against each other in a showcase of amazing Seattle U. talent. Professional musicians evaluate performers while BOB attendees vote for their favorite group via text-messaging.
SEAC's annual Quadstock, Seattle University's biggest event of the year, is an all-day event during spring quarter. First, the entire campus comes together for some carnival-like festivities on the green, along with the Student Music Stage, which allows Student talent to showcase their skills. The day culminates with a huge concert in the quad. The music, food, and games never stop between the Quad and the Union Green, with student groups playing at the Green during the day, before the Quad opens for the main festivities toward the evening. Like Seattle’s music scene, Quadstock offers music of all different genres and will have something for everyone. Past performers include The Thermals, Dan Deacon, Macklemore, Del the Funky Homosapien, Talib Kweli, Ok GO, and Blue Scholars.
