Campus Activities & Recreational Programs


Campus Activities 

The Campus Activities Board is housed in the Office of Student Affairs with the express purpose of providing entertainment, recreation and educational programs for Life University’s student body. CAB, which is comprised of part-time Campus Activities Monitors, helps to plan student events on campus.

If you like planning and participating in events designed for students such as concerts, parties, bands/ DJs, holiday festivals and dinners, open mic nights and other fun gatherings, the Campus Activities Board is a great way to get involved and get your friends and colleagues involved as well!

Membership

Any student with a cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.5 or higher can become a member of the Campus Activities Board.

For more information or to join CAB or its membership, please email engage@life.edu or CAB@Student.LIFE.edu.
