Southwestern Oklahoma State University’s Collegiate Activities Board (CAB) has selected its members for the 2006 spring semester on the Weatherford campus.

CAB is comprised of student leaders who enjoy volunteering and providing educational and fun events for other SWOSU students.

According to SWOSU Dean of Students Cindy Dougherty, CAB sponsors several events on campus with a portion of all student fees which goes to CAB for funding campus-wide events.

“This is a volunteer army of the best and brightest this generation has to offer,” Dougherty said. “They are creative and energetic and a pleasure with which to work. I count myself blessed to serve as their sponsor, and SWOSU is a more exciting place because of their contributions.”

Some of the recent CAB events include: Haunted Parker Hall, Constitution Week, and the Martin Luther King Power Breakfast. CAB has also provided for the entire student body: movies on the lawn, a super bowl watch party, and SWOSU Night at the Hornets Game.

Special events the group has created and managed are: X-box Love-a-Graduate Day, Faculty/Staff Administration Day, laser tag, and Bulldog Blitz, a campus–wide talent show.

New events this semester are Hispanic-Latino Heritage Week, Cinco De Mayo Celebration, Battle of the Genders, and Sex in the University (women’s “her story” week).

Any student interested in joining CAB should contact Shameika Williams, CAB director, in the Dean of Students Office (STF 214) or 580.774.7153.

“At CAB, we listen to what the students seek, need and want,” Williams said. “Then we respond with appropriate events.”
