CAB at NACA Fall 2011.jpg

Students and staff from Eastern Connecticut State University attended this year's National Association for Campus Activities conference in Hartford CT on November 17-19. Students from Eastern's Campus Activity Board (CAB) competed in several categories and took home the honors for: best flier, best themed campaign and best traditional promotion for their division.

Associate Director of Student Activities/Student Center, Candace DeAngelis, was also recognized at this year's regional conference. She was honored with the Maureen McDermott/Michelle Delaney Staff Programmer award which is given to someone who best exemplifies outstanding achievement in the field of student affairs.

The National Association for Campus Activities advances campus activities in higher education through a business and learning partnership, creating educational and business opportunities for its school and professional members. NACA now has more than 950 college and university members and over 550 associate members who represent artists, lecturers and performers.

Student Activities Fair 2009.jpgOn Thursday, September 2, 2010, Eastern Connecticut State University will hold its annual President's Picnic and Student Activities Fair from 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. The President's Picnic will be held on the Wood Support Services Lawn. At the same time, over 60 student run clubs and organizations which are sponsored by the Student Government Association will be on Student Center patio for the Student Activities Fair. The rain date for the event is Wednesday, September 8, 2010.

The Student Activities Fair is an excellent opportunity for all students to explore opportunities to get involved on campus. Current members of the clubs and organizations will be present to give interested students information on meeting times and expectations along with details about upcoming programs being planned by the groups.

Joining a club or organization has benefits beyond connecting with other students with similar interests. During the 2009-10 academic year, individuals who were involved in student clubs and organizations achieved better than their peers who did not participate within the classroom. Over 1000 students participated during that time and averaged a grade point average of 3.04.

A complete list of currently active clubs and organizations is available at the Student Activities web site. Students are always welcome to start a new club or organization. Information on the web site indicates the process on how to get started. Individuals can contact John Bazin, Assistant to the Director of Student Center/Activities and Student Organization Assistant in the Office of Student Activities for more information.
