CAB voices input on Galaxy Series’ selection

CAB members allocated a total of $6,800 for four upcoming campus events.

Samantha Evans, treasurer, said that the CAB account contains $9,298. Clubs’ budget hearings start Thursday. Evans reminded clubs to make sure that their required members are at the hearings.

CAB allocated $3,300 for the next two free movie nights. The first movie night is this Sunday. The second free movie night, which is a special showing of The Hunger Games, is March 25. Luke Wright, president, said the movies available would be listed on the plasma screen in the Student Center.

CAB allocated $3,000 for Scholastics Day events. Laure Sinn, advisor, said that Friday, April 13 is Scholastics Day. Approximately 1,500 high school students will be on campus for the event. Events for students include horse/wagon tours of the campus, courtesy of Fort Robinson, and a tour of the forensics lab, according to Sinn. Sinn asked for help from students and clubs with the events.

CAB allocated $500 for a luau during May, which is Asian Pacific Islander Month.

Shellie Johns, conferencing coordinator, passed out a survey, so club representatives could vote for the specialty event for next year’s Galaxy Series Events. The acts on the survey were the Tap Dogs, Keith Anderson, Jared Rogerson, and Billy Gilman. Johns said that with some of these acts, their availability depends on whether she can get the stage equipment and sound equipment, which come from Florida.

Johns said that clubs that want their events posted on the calendar in the Student Center should talk to her. Clubs are not allowed to write their events directly on the calendar.

Sara Labor, student events coordinator, said the U.S. Navy Band Sea Chanters will perform at Memorial Hall 7:30-10 p.m., Tuesday. The Wind Symphony has a performance 7-9 p.m., Thursday, March 22. Release is 7:30 p.m., Saturday, March 24 in Memorial Hall.

The Public Relations Club and RLA are hosting the Battle of the Bands event 6-10 p.m., March 30 in the Student Center Ballroom. Students get in free, and there will be t-shirts for sale.

The Pit event “Got’cha” starts on Thursday, according to Reba Jackson, Pit co-manager. On April 26, the Pit is hosting an End of the World party, with a barbeque, hot tub, live band, and other activities. Clubs are welcome to help co-sponsor the event, Jackson said.

Wright reminded club representatives that the next CAB meeting is March 27.
