More Fun, Frequent Events

THE CAMPUS ACTIVITIES BOARD (CAB) is a group of dedicated and creative students who work for the Office of Student Activities to plan, market and host events for all students. Those students are: Rachel Bunker, Kyla Desmarais, Ashley Elder, Sarah Gilmore, Keith Jordan and Avery O’Neal. The office has grown over the last couple of years to offer more, higher-quality events for students.

Examples of a typical month of CAB programming consists of Monday Night Bingo, Tuesday Night Trivia, Waypoint Wednesday, movie nights, weekend trips, and gaming tournaments. CAB also hosts many large-scale and traditional events such as the Welcome Back Extravaganza, the Community Involvement Fair, Homecoming, Late Night Breakfast, CABin Fever Week, and Finals Week programming.

CAB is always looking for new and unique event ideas to host and often brings ideas from fellow classmates to the table. Some of the more unique programming that CAB offered this past year was a celebration of National Pickle Day, a Mechanical Shark riding contest, a MadLibs water challenge, and the wildly successful Duck Day.

You might wonder what in the world is Duck Day? Well, it started with 200 miniature rubber ducks hidden on campus. If a student found one, they would turn it into the prize table for a chance to win one of 200 prizes available. The event boosted campus pride and engagement as well as the spirits of the 200 happy prize winners.

Through both the social and educational programming that CAB offers, students are provided opportunities to enrich their college experience and hopefully have some fun along the way.
