This page is a record of well-known, beloved, and/or despised staff members of Seattle and the many stories collected about them.
Quentin Blanchet served two sessions as an RA at Seattle University (13.1-.2). He is known for his French accent and outstanding sense of humor. Every morning, he greeted his hall with the classic, "C'mon guys, time to go" in, of course, a French accent. Under his tutelage, his hall also helped establish The Final Countdown as a canon song in Seattle.
In 13.2, his floor won a contest allowing one member of each hall to pie anyone in the camp. In a surprise, the hall prompted Quentin to pie SRA Kevin.
In 2016, he was an SRA at the now defunct Palo Alto YS site.
Sofi Halpin, like Quentin, served two sessions as an RA at Seattle (17.1-.2). She organized many somewhat popular line dancing activities and a Glee Club, which performed at the Talent Show with RA Ryan, and she led a Random Acts of Kindness activity. She was known for oversleeping and forgetting her lanyard, shoes, and one of her kids in the dorms after a hasty headcount.
Her hall won Casino Night and was planning to pie RA Kendall. Sofi conveniently forgot and a pieing did not occur, but no one really cared. It should be noted that Kendall absolutely refused to be pied and Sofi, deciding to respect her wish, didn't let her hall choose Kendall. Her hall also was very indecisive and as a result, there was no one to pie in the first place, though Kendall was definitely the most popular choice.
She caused a lot of confusion by claiming that she, Kendall, RA Owen, and RA Jacob were quadruplets, and managed to fool pretty much the entire site. The entire thing was revealed to be a hoax on the last night of the session.
Sofi and her hall were also disliked by some for singing in the hallway near or past lights out, screaming "OXYTOCIN!!" in the middle of campus (don't think of it as a pregnancy thing. DON'T.), cooking noodles in the lounge past midnight, and being crazy.
Sofi still owes Anouk a game of Scrabble :)
