Is there a particular activity or event you would like to see on campus? Would you like to become more involved in extracurricular activities? If so, CAB is the group for you! Campus Activities Board, also known as CAB, is a fun and creative organization. The purpose of CAB is to build a sense of community between students within the college. CAB is dedicated to the purpose of planning, organizing, and executing campus events for all campuses to enjoy. They hope to increase student’s overall wellness by inspiring campus pride. They also aim to promote student involvement, leadership, self-growth and unity by giving all a chance to come together to enjoy exciting events.
Lewis Phipps has been a part of CAB at the Eastern Campus for more than five years. As a member, and President of The Board, he has done it all. Phipps helps setup and clean up events, take photos, and even designed the East CAB logo (as seen on CAB t-shirts).
“CAB plans the parties,” said Phipps.
CAB produces many of the fun events on campus, and would love students to get involved by volunteering, spreading the word about events or simply attending and giving feedback. By serving on CAB, students get first input in what events happen during the semester and contribute in promoting a more fun and vibrant college experience.
Ginny Krouse, has been the Student Life Advisor at the Western Campus since 2009. She revealed that studies have shown that students who participate in co-curricular activities, such as CAB, perform better academically and are more likely to succeed. People go to college to help them get the job of their choice. The best way to do this is to have an attractive resume and connections. You gain marketable skills through this experience. Participating in CAB will help you do just that in a fun, nonthreatening setting.
The Campus Activity Board (CAB) works with the Office of Student Life as a programming board at Tri-C. Membership in CAB is open to any student who wants to participate in the planning and volunteering for campus events. If you are interested in becoming a member, please contact the Office of Student Life at your campus. It’s not just about the time you spend at Tri-C, it’s about the experience.
