Campus Activities Board Recognized for Programming Excellence

December 13th, 2012 by 

The Campus Activities Board (CAB) at the College of the Holy Cross received an Excellence in Programming Award from the National Association for Campus Activities (NACA) at their Northeast Regional Conference, which took place in Hartford, Conn. from Nov. 8-11.  This is the second year in a row that the College has received the honor.

“This award shows that our publicity ideas, our events, and the success of those events, displayed a wide range of programming abilities and excellence,” explains Rob Doyle ’13, a biology major from High Bridge, N.J. and co-president of CAB. “We demonstrated our strong programming skills and how we have implemented new techniques and new events in order to keep the student body engaged.”

During their presentation at the conference, CAB highlighted some of their most successful events at the College including Unity Week, which featured a talk by Academy Award-winner and civil rights activist Dustin Lance Black, as well as the Holy Cross Pig Roast, a Spring Weekend celebratory event.

“We are here to program events that students want to participate in,” explains Doyle, discussing the impact of CAB on the Holy Cross community. “It’s great to work on these events and to see how excited everyone gets.”

“We have strived to do better and to bring in events that students want to see and would be interested in going to,” he continues.

Also at the NACA conference, CAB co-president Matthew Fay ’13 was honored with a Ken M. Bedine Student Leader Award, which was presented to only five student leaders in the Northeast.
