SEAC's signature events are larger scale events which happen once a quarter, Fall Ball during Fall Quarter, Battle of the Bands during Winter Quarter, and the Quadstock Music Festival during Spring Quarter. These events are designed to bring the Seattle University community together and enjoy everything that SeattleU has to offer.
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 many beautiful venues. Past venues include the Museum of Pop Culture, Museum of History and Innovation, the Seattle Art Museum, the Aquarium, and Benaroya Hall. Students have the opportunity to explore a new part of Seattle and have a fun night out with their friends.
As one of Seattle University's Homecoming's largest attractions, SEAC is proud to present our annual Battle of the Bands (BoB), showcases student bands in a competition for various prizes and bragging rights. Student bands compete against each other in a showcase of amazing Seattle U. talent. Professional musicians evaluate performers while BoB attendees vote for their favorite group. The winner of BoB gets to open SEAC's Annual Quadstock Music Festival in the spring.
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, ok Go, Dev, Macklemore, Ivan & Alyosha, and Saint Motel.
