Special Events

  • '80s Dance 

    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

    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.  This year, Fall Ball will take place at Benaroya Hall on Friday, November 15, 2013. For more information, contact Fall Ball Chair Lindsey Habenicht.  

    Battle of the Bands

    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. This year, Battle of the Bands will take place on Friday, February 28, 2014, in the Campion Ballroom.  For more information, contact Battle of the Bands Chair Antonio Dowling.


    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.  Mark your calendars for May 17, 2014: an SU tradition you won't want to miss. This year also happens to be the 25th anniversary of this one-of-a-kind event!  For more information, contact one of our two Quadstock chairs: MG Hart or Cristina Vázquez.
