CAB: February 2018 Org of the Month
Congratulations to SP&E’s “February Org of the Month,” Campus Activities Board (CAB)
February was a short and busy month on campus! The opening of the Bentley Arena provided new opportunities for orgs to create innovative programs. CAB’s wildly successful comedy show, the ever-popular Super Bingo, and its Spring Day campaign, have earned it the title of Org of the Month.
CAB is the largest student org on campus, and it provides students with quality events that meet the educational, recreational, and social needs of the Bentley community. This org is responsible for some of Bentley’s most beloved traditions. February brought two major CAB events to campus. On the very first day of the month, students migrated to the Dana Center for the chance to win big at Super Bingo.
Two weeks later, the 2018 CAB Comedy Show became the first student event to be held in the Bentley Arena. Wayne Brady took the stage, inviting a handful of Bentley students to join him, and kept the audience laughing all night. It was another great achievement for CAB this month.
The biggest event that CAB holds is Spring Day. On the Saturday before finals, Bentley students overrun lower campus to participate in activities like body painting, inflatable rides, and karaoke. Of course, there’s always plenty of food to keep students energized for the main event: a high-energy concert, which will take place in the Bentley Arena for the first time this year.
Past artists have included Travis Scott, The Chainsmokers, and Jason Derulo. Bentley Students are already anxiously awaiting the announcement of this year’s artist. Another Spring Day first is CAB’s initiative to raise money for Puerto Rico by withholding the identity of the Spring Day artist until Bentley students have donated $7,000. The goal is to help Puerto Rico find a sustainable path back to stability and prosperity. The campaign kicked off in February and will continue until CAB’s goal is reached.
CAB has engaged both its Bentley audience and the community at large, earning it the title of Org of the Month. Help support CAB’s efforts by donating to its Puerto Rico fundraiser today!
