HUB Alumni Spotlight: Mike Egan, ASUW President 1989-90

Mike Egan

What was your most memorable UW class?

Comparative Literature with Professor Willis Konick. He brought classics to life and walked the desk ala “Dead Poet’s Society”.
 

Who is your hero? Why?

Both Lincolns: Abe and Johnson. Both have bettered their surroundings and united their communities.
 

What would be your go-to karaoke song?

“Rapper’s Delight” by The Sugarhill Gang (long and old-school, but once you get these lyrics down, you won’t forget it.)
 

What is your favorite Husky football game day tradition?

With a 5 year old and 8 year old, my days of gathering in the Montlake parking lot to tailgate have now morphed into watching the boats arrive at the Waterfront Activities Center and then searching for Harry Husky!

What has been your favorite memory of the HUB?

February 25, 1989, seeing Nirvana play (before anyone knew them) – 4 bands for $4 – in the HUB Ballroom. And that same year, hosting Jerry Seinfeld, before his TV show, for Parent’s Weekend. I still recall The Daily blasting ASUW for booking him, their headline; “Jerry Who?”
