Campus Activity Board plans action-packed semester for students

By Avery Hagler

We all love a shoe that fits perfectly. The University of Mary-Hardin Baylor  has an organization that strives to fit every one of their students in the same way, with events and activities that pique various interests. This is the Campus Activities Board, better known as CAB.

The best part about all of CAB events is that you don’t need your wallet. Every event that  CAB hosts is always free to all UMHB students. All you need is your Cru Card to attend.  The other great thing about CAB is the opportunity for students to join CAB’s team in putting on these events.

Senior Sydney Ashmore has been a member of CAB since she was a freshman. She  joined CAB because of the “welcoming environment and the community that CAB provides on campus.” Sydney is just one of many examples of students who have found their place on  campus through CAB. 

Organizers say that the commitment is flexible, according to Mary Baucom, the Director of Campus  Activities and the staff advisor.

 “Students can be as involved as much or as little as they  want,” Bawcom said. “If a student does not want to attend every event, that is fine.”

Participating students say that CAB truly is designed for both social butterflies and more reserved students alike. Students can help plan the events, but don’t have to. Caroline Cademartori has attended many CAB events. She says the highlight from the past year was the Randy O’Rave, a dance party at the president’s house on campus.

 “It was a fun night with all of my friends, and it was unlike  anything I have ever experienced before,”  Cademartori said.

Randy O’Rave is just one of the many staple events CAB has put on annually. Students also  look forward to a pancake supper, back to school bash, homecoming events, and many fun pop-up events that occur on King Street. 

According to Baucom, in the next month we can expect a pool party at Summer Fun  USA located in Belton, TX. Find Randy is another fast approaching event that aims to get the  student body pumped for the first home football game and for winning some fabulous prizes. 

If you are looking for an organization that is flexible, community-oriented and fun, this organization could be that perfect fit for you.  If you are interested in joining, CAB meets every Monday at 5:30 P.M. in the Student Activities office.
