Organization Note

“The Campus Activities Board was designed with the fundamental goals to enrich the educational, cultural, social and recreational needs for the entire Gustavus community. It is our duty to plan and execute a variety of programs and activities, being sure to satisfy the entertainment needs of the student body. With student input we hope to provide the community with a vast array of entertainment opportunities.

The mission of the Campus Activities Board is to enrich the campus life experience by encouraging the involvement of all students in entertainment that is exciting, fun and diverse.

The Campus Activities Board strives for success in a variety of ways but primarily -through these common goals: gaining all student input, planning and implementing diverse events, becoming recognized leaders, providing students with a connection to campus and having fun.

The Campus Activities Board is a member of the National Association for Campus Activities (NACA). NACA was created in 1960 to help increase the buying power of campus programming dollars. Today NACA has more than 1,000 college and university members and offers many different events, educational institutes, publications and networking opportunities for many colleges and universities. By being a member in NACA the Campus Activities Board hopes to gain professional knowledge and input on planning and programming successful events.”
