Board going crazy for finals madness

Members of the Campus Activities Board decided to have an officers meeting on March 1 in the student activities office.

“We had a stack of events that needed to get done recently,” said Candice Dickinson, CAB president. “That’s why we had two normal meetings in a row, then there was senior assessment. We felt like we just needed to plan some stuff before another full meeting.”

One of the things the Board discussed was what kind of community involvement project it wants to focus on this semester.

The group has narrowed down its choices down to two projects, either the Boys and Girls Club or the Lafayette House.

“We need to figure out if we’re going to do a fund-raiser or if we’re going to donate man power,” Dickinson said.

The Board also discussed upcoming events like the MOSO Talent Show and the Southern Olympics.

The Southern Olympics will be at 8 p.m. on March 14.

There are already eight teams signed up.

CAB will help out by setting up and tearing down and possibly providing judges.

The talent show already has at least 14 acts signed up. But, the deadline is Friday for entries.

Tori Maloukis, director of student activities, said the talent show will be mostly musical acts this year.

“While going through the applications, it looks like there’s a lot of vocal acts and some instrumental acts,” she said. “I would also like to see more things like dance. I know last year one of the complaints was a diversity issue in the judges. And I think they’re making a point to try to get some diversity on the judges panel this year.”

The Board also discussed the theme for final madness.

“We’re looking at bringing in a rock wall and hopefully some local bands,” Maloukis said. “But one thing for sure on the agenda is Extreme Air, a skydiving simulator.”

CAB also has a movie night coming up on March 9. Tickets will be available in the student activities office.
