It’s that time of year again- GRADUATION. The students of Cohorts past are getting ready to head for the door and a new group of bright-eyed, idea filled cohort 13 members is on it’s way in, change is in the air.

But, before we let the grads head for the exit, there is one more CommLead (The program formally known as MCDM) event not to be missed. We have all heard the rumors & it is true: SUMMIT IS COMING.


What can you expect from this event? Well, I’m glad you asked! The Screen Summit started in 2011, it is an end of year networking event where students could show their work from the previous year on the screen of their choice. Be it big screen, small screen, iPad, iPhone etc… This is an event at which it is encouraged for students to use their work to say “look at what I did!”

In it’s first year, the event was held at Portage Bay Café in South Lake Union. Then, for round two, last year, the Screen Summit was held at the Institute for Systems Biology – South Lake Union location, this year we are shaking things up with another new location & bringing this fantastical networking & toot-your-own-horn event to the recently remodeled Museum of History & Industry aka MOHAI.

There are so many innovative, original ideas born from the minds of CommLead Students and the Screen Summit provides a place and time for us to show off just how awesome the work we do is. Some of the projects previously presented have run the gambit from mobile apps that match up digital pen-pals to an ultimate Frisbee team documentary to a YouTube channel for incoming, current and prospective students. If the years past are at all indicative of what we can expect this year (I think they are), I can’t wait to see what this year’s event has in store.

If you haven’t made it down to MOHAI since the Dec. 29th grand re-opening, this is the perfect opportunity to check out the new digs, see some awesome student work and, as with all CommLead events, do some hardcore networking. You can RSVP and find directions via Brown Paper Tickets.

Did I mention that there would be wine? Oh and food too…

See ya there!
