  • Erik Hagberg


    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.

    Kiana Serna


    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."

    Evan Britton

    Evan is a true Oregonian at heart but finds home at Seattle University as a Theology and Religious Studies major. He finds solace in free food and knitting and if he isn't attending a local concert or frolicking around the park, he can usually be found with his friends at Cupcake Royale or Elliot Bay Book Company. He's always got his phone on person, ready to take a picture of the latest and greatest fun. He also enjoys baking, which can admittedly turn out to be a big, beautiful mess.
