Campus Programming Board

The Campus Programming Board is launching this spring (2020) to prepare and plan a variety of events and programs for the MC student body beginning in the fall of 2020. What has been known as the Campus Activities Board (CAB) will transition into a larger and broader group known as the Campus Programming Board. This board will plan a variety of events, fun activities, large scale campus weekends and events, educational programs, and more. 

Who will lead the Campus Programming Board?

The Campus Programming Board will be led by student directors that work in the Office of Student Engagement throughout the fall and spring semester. The directors will lead eleven (11) committee chairs who, along with their committees, plan and execute a variety of programming for the campus. Committee membership will be on a semester-by-semester basis, meaning you don't have to commit to the entire year or multiple years. You can decide how much you want to be involved!

What are the committees?

A few of the committees are standing student committees that will come under the Campus Programming Board umbrella, while some are brand new. Some of the committees are event specific, while others will plan 2 to 3 events per semester under their specific focus.

Commuter Programming

Students on the Commuter Programming Committee will work together to plan activities geared toward commuter students. 

Cross-Cultural Programming

The Cross-Cultural Program Committee will work on programming which highlights the diversity and many cultures represented on our campus. This committee will work alongside student organizations and departments already represented on campus.

Family Weekend

Students on the Family Weekend Committee will work together to plan and implement programming for Family Weekend, typically held in September each fall semester.


Students on the Homecoming Committee will work together to plan and implement student events during Homecoming Week in October. 

Lighting of the Quad

Students on the Lighting of the Quad Committee will plan and carry out Lighting of the Quad, typically held the Tuesday after Thanksgiving break each fall semester. Lighting of the Quad is MC's biggest Christmas event each holiday season. 

Marketing & Promotions

The Marketing & Promotions Committee will work to promote the work of the Campus Programming Board through social media, flyers, graphics and other promotional materials. The committee will also work on viritual programming such as giveaways, sports brackets and more. 

Music & Arts

The Music & Arts Committee will work specifically on events that highlight music and art on campus. This committee will have the opportunity to collaborate with campus departments and organizations specific to music and art.

Pop-Up Events

The Pop-Up Events Committee will create and execute pop-up events throughout each semester that are meant to highlight student's days through giveaways, small celebrations, etc. These events are smaller scale but big impact events.

Special Events

The Special Events Committee will work on larger events that fall outside the description of the other event committees. Examples may include Friendsgiving, Haunted House, events with outside vendors such as Laser Tag, etc. 

Spring Fever Week

The Spring Fever Week will work together to plan an exciting week in April that highlights the excitement of spring on campus. 

Student Productions Committee

The Student Productions Committee will work on producing MC's two largest student productions each year, Follies and Swerve. This includes assisting groups with their individual productions, working with the audio/visual crew, working backstage, and more.
