Black Students Board

The Black Students Board is one of NC State University’s first African American organizations after the Society of Afrikan American Culture (SAAC). The Board exists to foster a sense of unity among students of the African Diaspora while educating others about our culture. It is our belief that “the pursuit of culture is not readily attained. It must be cultivated with determination, strength, creativity, and unity.” Committee meetings are Wednesdays at 7pm in the UAB Suite, Talley 5261. Email Deijah Barnes at uab-blackstudentsboard@ncsu.edu to learn more!

Diversity Activities Board

The Diversity Activities Board is a committee that welcomes representatives from diverse organizations/clubs on campus to participate in programming for the Union Activities Board. Our mission is to promote, produce, facilitate and educate by conducting events including all cultures and perspectives. By utilizing the strength of the diverse student body at NC State, this committee programs with the intent of celebrating the world for all of its cultures and experiences. Committee meetings are bi-weekly on Wednesdays at 6pm in Talley 4245. Email Nyla Ruiz at uab-diversity@ncsu.edu to learn more

Films

The Films Committee selects and promotes the films shown at the NCSU Campus Cinema. We aim to satisfy every type of moviegoer, offering box office blockbusters, as well as occasional independent films. The committee runs sneak peek previews, allowing students to screen films before they are released to the public. Our mission is to provide students with a place to go for entertainment, and to help introduce the students to different cultures from Bollywood Films to Latin American Film and more. Committee meetings are Thursdays at 7pm, check go.ncsu.edu/uabfilmscalendar for location. Email CN Pittman at uab-films-movies@ncsu.edu

Issues and Ideas

The UAB Issues & Ideas Committee’s mission is to provide students with information about current issues and a forum in which to discuss them. We work to both address topics in which students have an interest, and to inform them of important issues that affect them of which they may not be aware. This can include local, national, or international issues within academic disciplines. Through such programming, students expand their knowledge base outside the college classroom. Committee meetings are Thursdays at 6:30pm in Talley 4105. Email Mitchell Moravec at uab-issues-ideas@ncsu.edu

Concerts and Entertainment

The Concerts and Entertainment committee helps plan several large university concerts (such as PackHowl, LDOC Concert and All Night Bash) along with providing students with fun and engaging events to enhance their college experience. These events are built to promote music, art and general entertainment within the NC State community while providing students with the opportunity to see various talents. Committee meetings are Mondays at 4:45pm in Talley 3210. Email Luis Esteves at uab-concerts@ncsu.edu

Leisure and Recreation

The Leisure and Recreation Committee offers an assortment of fun and engaging activities for the student body. Through new ventures and old traditions, we help students get the full experience of college life by providing stress-busting activities and events. A multitude of events are curated by this committee with the intention of relieving the student body’s stress through activities that excite and intrigue the student body. Committeee meetings are Tuesdays at 5:30pm in Talley 4105. Email Crystal Thao at uab-entertainment@ncsu.edu
