Erik always knew he was a big city kid at heart. After growing up in the small town of Lakeport, California, Erik finds himself right at home here in Seattle and at Seattle University. He's a bona fide leader, a busy bee keeping up in the busy world of college and the hustle and bustle of the big city. If he's not busy running around campus, you'll often find him with friends at a hip local restaurant embracing his inner foodie spirit. Erik also frequently "shops until he drops" and it's not uncommon to see him browsing the many retail options in and around the city.

What does Evan like more than music? Nothing. Looking for Evan on a Saturday? Go to the nearest thrift shop and you’ll find him rummaging through the bins. Can’t find him on campus? That’s probably because he’s hanging out with local indie rockstars in the KEXP studio. Why are there so many questions in Evan’s description? Because his Jesuit education has taught him that reflecting is the bee’s knees.

Kiana is a girl from suburbia finally being able to live a big city life. She likes going anywhere that has a nice view of Seattle and carries a Polaroid camera everywhere she goes. You will rarely find her in her residence hall room because she is always going on some sort of adventure. When asked what her favorite thing to do, she responds with "grabbing a cup of coffee on Pike and doing a little bit of people watching while reading a good book." On campus Kiana is part of Hawaii club, JustServe, and has a slight obsession with penguins. But who doesn't like a penguin?

Julia is a junior Marketing major from San Mateo, CA. When she isn’t designing posters and flyers for Marketing Club events or baking cookies with her roommates, you can usually find her enjoying Seattle’s cultural life. Whether it’s the latest exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum, a concert downtown, or the newest restaurant on Capitol Hill, Julia loves city living. She’s usually got her Nikon D90 camera in hand so expect to find lots of photos on her blog.

Although Arianna hails from the small city of Eagle River, AK (located in south-central Alaska), she likes to believe that she is true Seattleite at heart. Arianna has an affinity for buying too many art supplies and finding the best deals in the city because of her refusal to buy anything that isn't on sale. She also takes far too much pride in her extensive iTunes library. If she isn't marathoning Scandal or Grey's Anatomy, you can often find her frequenting The Elliot Bay Book Company or Molly Moons Ice Cream Shop on Capitol Hill, as nothing is stronger than her sweet tooth and love of books.
