CAB offers fun and leadership
By Aubrey Kirk
Now is the time to get involved with the Campus Activity Board. The first event on Saturday Jan. 30th featured a Gameday Hangout and Whiteout Basketball game. Events like this offer students opportunities to build a community on campus.
Mary Baucom, Asst. Director of Campus Activities and the staff Advisor for CAB, says that getting involved with CAB “is so easy.”
“Students can come to a meeting anytime and get plugged in,” Baucom said. “We meet every Monday at 5:30 p.m. in the Great Hall.”
This semester includes multiple Live on King Street events, Gameday Hangouts with CAB before the sports games. CAB is working on a Spring Fun Run and 5k, Movie Nights at Grand Avenue, Bingo and Trivia Nights, as well as the beloved Pancake Supper.
Former Executive Leader Taylor Humphrey said CAB has come up with new ways to provide the ability to stay involved during the pandemic.
“COVID-19 has caused CAB to think outside of the box in how to reach students,” Humphrey said. “We had to overcome challenges by including technology-based events and using our recourses, such as Instagram, to stay connected.”
Members are thinking outside the box by brainstorming about creative events with pandemic restrictions.
CAB member Jillian Boucher said that being involved has offered more than just involvement. The mission of CAB is to create events that enhance campus community, as well as fun. It creates a space for the members to grow as student leaders and gain event experience, which can open so many opportunities for the future.
“I love getting to develop my leadership skills ad be involved in all of the on-campus activities,” Boucher said.
