Watch the Bumbershoot 2014 Music Lineup Video!
Bumbershoot is Seattle’s 3-Day Music & Arts Festival that happens in Seattle Center every Labor Day weekend—it’s been going on for 40+ years! Last summer I had the opportunity to be the marketing intern for the festival, so it’s an event that I just love.
Check out the video above! It’s a great lineup, and a cool depiction of Seattle.
Last week/weekend was a perfect depiction of my time at SU and the variety of activities I’m exposed to.
Last week I went to the Ellie Goulding concert at the Paramount, which was so fun and ridiculous. She was great and her lighting/visuals were amazing.
This past weekend, I got to tour Starbucks corporate headquarters in SODO with the American Marketing Association chapter on campus.
I also spent some time exploring and hiking this weekend on the Tolt Pipeline trail in Woodinville.
It was a classic weekend—seeing a concert walking distance from campus, exploring my business network by touring Starbucks (one of several major corporations headquartered right here in Seattle), and getting some time to explore the outdoors!
Q:Will I be able to get more scholarships if I apply for early action or it doesn't really matter whether I apply for early action or regular admission?
Hi! Great question!
Financial packages don’t depend on how early you apply, but rather academic merit, i.e. test scores & cumulative GPA.
Typically, we encourage students who feel academically consistent to apply early, and those that are wanting admissions to see their first semester, senior year grades to apply regular decision.
Ending a fantastic Easter weekend with Mass on campus at the Chapel of St. Ignatius and a delicious homemade brunch! We made a fruit salad, asparagus/goat cheese/mushroom frittata, and I made peanut butter banana bread! Happy Easter!
Photos from the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival:
All of my roommates and I went this past weekend to the Tulip Festival in the Skagit Valley, about an hour north of Seattle. We lucked out with beautiful weather and minimal traffic! The tulip festival is essentially what it sounds like: open fields with rows and rows of beautiful tulips planted, and people come from all over to see it. It was amazing—the pictures don’t quite do it justice!
One Reel’s Career Day 4/10/2014
Yesterday I had the opportunity to help out at an awesome event put on by the organization I interned with last summer—One Reel. The City of Music Career Day is an event they host for high school and college-age students who are interested in pursuing a career in music. This year featured a keynote address by Adam Zacks, who started the Sasquatch Music Festival up here in Washington. There were panel discussions with industry insiders, a table fair with local organizations, as well as an opportunity to eat lunch with mentors in the business. High school students who were interested in going even got an approved day off school! It’s a fantastic event and something I wish I had gotten to attend in high school. The Seattle music and arts community is a close-knit one, and I’m so grateful for the internship experiences that have let me become a part of it.
Yesterday was the first over-70 degree day in Seattle of 2014, so naturally the whole city was celebrating!! The park was packed when I went on a run, filled with dogs and picnics and bike-riders. My roommates gardened in the front, I took silly sunny-day selfies with fellow blogger (and roommate) Erik, and of course I made delicious tacos for dinner! Happy Spring!
