CAB wraps up the year with a bang
Campus Activities Board is always looking at what we can do next. What is the next big event? Who can we bring to campus? What does the Assumption community want to see? But it’s just as important to look back on previous events and the big picture.
CAB began the year working alongside SGA to provide students with “Welcome Weekend” events. From Brian O’Sullivan to Fall Fever through everyone’s favorite BINGO, these two groups worked as a cohesive unit to put on five highly attended events. Welcome Weekends are hard to plan because the events need to be booked and solidified the year before.
The transition into the new school year is often difficult, but this year’s was flawless.
Family Weekend came next with a theme of “Seasons Change, Family Remains.” The executives created a family tree and welcomed Assumption families with great food, entertainment and many smiles.
Weekend events flew by including acapella group Overboard and Trivia with a taste of Worcester. One event CAB is extremely proud of is Assumption’s first Paint Night on campus open to all students. This allowed student to create a canvas of a sunset in fall, very applicable to season.
The executives took off for a conference in Hartford: NACA. While there, executives learned what other schools are doing to promote, plan and execute successful events. We bonded with schools in our area, saw some daring acts and won an award for our creativity. CAB pushed the boundaries and overcame some rather large obstacles to get the most from this experience.
Soon after NACA, CAB welcomed our new advisor, Kaitlin Bevins. Her laugh was contagious from the start and it’s a good thing she’s kept that going since her first day. As a board, we are a lot to handle and Kaitlin was thrown in just in time for the biggest event of the semester.
For Winter Bash, we welcomed GrooveBoston back to campus. Their new “Cohesion” tour kept students entertained and engaged. After a long day of set-up and break-down, CAB celebrated Christmas and exchanged gifts. Nice things for nice people.
The next semester began with snow storm, after snow storm. These storms didn’t stop CAB from bringing the best events to campus. Alongside SGA, “Welcome Back Weekends” were a hit with Mind Games and karaoke.
Claytime, Headphone Disco and Relaxation Night were all offered to students. These events were diverse enough to keep every student engaged. It’s hard to please everyone but we definitely put our best foot forward to accommodate everyone.
Siblings’ Weekend came and everyone brought their sweet tooth. Candyland allowed siblings of all ages to feel welcome on campus. The Assumption community enjoyed inflatable Twister and a showing of “Into the Woods” before the movie had even come out to the public.
Over this past weekend, CAB’s Spring Formal: Masquerade was held at the DCU Center. The ball allowed seniors and juniors to get dressed up and dance the night away. Masks provided a fun party favor for all to enjoy.
Have you missed any of these exquisite events? Well there’s still time to buy your Spring Concert ticket. Eric Paslay and Dan + Shay will be coming to campus on May 4 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15 for students and can be found in the CAB office.
