Campus Activities Board
The McKendree University Campus Activities Board (CAB) has maintained a reputation as one of the best organizations at McKendree; planning and executing alternative and diverse social, recreational, multicultural, and educational events for both the campus and community. CAB consists of an Executive Board and general members, allowing for students to network with professionals in the work force, while gaining personal growth in leadership skills, programming, and team creativity.
CAB plans events that appeal to a college community of more than 1,500 students, including campus-wide traditional events, including Homecoming, Family Weekend, and Spring Fling. Through our efforts, we aim to create a positive experience for both our members and the students we serve; thus enhancing the campus experience at McKendree University. Meetings are conducted weekly between members to discuss information relevant to scheduled performers, events or activities.
