CAB contemplates mock male pageant for spring semester

As the fall semester draws to a close, the Campus Activities Board is winding down its fall schedule.

CAB is planning a few small events to close the semester, such as a “wrap” party where students can wrap their Christmas presents. The event will take place on Dec. 7.

CAB members have already started planning events for the spring semester.

One idea was a ‘”big man on campus” event, which would have men, instead of women, competing for a mock pageant title.

A video of a similar event was provided by Grahm Dickinson, senior finance major.

The video was a pageant put on by Cowley College, a junior college Dickinson had previously attended.

The event would have about 15 guys participating in a pageant-type event, with talent and evening wear competitions.

“The cool thing is, anything is a talent,” Dickinson said.

It is estimated 15 to 17 guys could enter the event, but it is still in the development stage.

Another proposed idea was a Ramen noodle cook-off. Students would compete for the best tasting Ramen noodle dish.

“”We haven’t totally thought about it, but we thought it would be fun. College students are infamous for eating Ramen noodles,” said Julie Blackford, director of student activities.

Deterring from past semesters, CAB is thinking about having a series of comedians come to campus every month.

Members have contacted a number of comedians and are looking for about two more.

No comedians have been booked at this time, but plans to do so are close.

Blackford said the Board talked about having one act on the third Thursday of every month.

No plans have yet been submitted.

CAB is hosting a dollar day on Nov. 17 in the Lion’s Den. Students will be able to purchase a hamburger, chips and a drink for a dollar. Proceeds would go to the United Way.

Anyone with ideas or interest in CAB is invited to attend the weekly meetings at 2 p.m. Wednesdays in the student activities office on the second floor of the Billingsly Student Center.
