We have all walked onto a college campus and have been bombarded with brightly colored posters screaming at us about all of the upcoming events. Music, speakers, comedy…it’s all there. Most likely, all of that activity is facilitated by the school’s Campus Activities Board.
CAB is comprised of students (officers and members) who are in charge of making sure that the campus comes alive with fun, exciting, diverse, quality entertainment, and enrichment all year long. Bands, magicians, comedians, poets, speakers, hypnotists and ninjas- if you can name it, chances are it has been here or will be in the near future!!
How do I become a member?
Joining CAB is easy. Just e-mail a CAB Officer or come to one of our weekly meetings. You may also call CAB at (815) 921-4189 or stop by the CAB Office (Room 1122) right next to the Student Center Atrium for more information.
When does CAB meet?
Tuesdays at 2:00 p.m. in the Student Center Club Room during the fall and spring semesters.
