Campus Activities Board

The Campus Activities Board (CAB) is a student organization that provides social, educational, cultural and recreational activities for students, faculty, staff, alumni and the Topeka community.

From bringing comedians, magicians and speakers to campus, to handing out water bottles, the organization ensures that there's always something to do at Washburn!

Located in the Union Underground of the Memorial Union, CAB is involved with Move-In Day, Playfair, Rock the Rec, Convocation and many other activities during Welcome Week at Washburn.

CAB also helps to organize Union Market Daze, Grocery Bingo and many other events. Learn how to get involved by stopping by the CAB office or Student Involvement and Development, also located in the Memorial Union.
