FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the SAB? Is it a "club"?
The Student Activities Board is not a student club. It is a professional student organization that functions, develops, and implements large scale student programming as an extension of the Department of Student Life.
What exactly do you guys do? Do you only plan events?
The Student Activities Board plans and hosts a substantial amount of the events happening both on and off-campus. We host a variety of events such as wellness events, cultural events, professional development events, off-campus events, and big production events. We strive for students to be able to walk away from our events with new knowledge whether that be educational, health, cultural, professional, or just new friends.

How can I get involved? Can anyone join?
The SAB functions on a Spring to Fall schedule. Recruitment for the new 2021 cohort will begin sometime mid-Fall. Our Executive positions require students to be matriculated for one academic year and have some campus leadership experience while others require one academic semester and little to no experience.
