CAB is the primary programming entity on the Rose Hill Campus. We bring you both small and large scale events to make your life at Fordham an exciting one. Our mission is to provide high quality social, cultural, educational and informational programming that appeals to all interests within the student community. CAB consists of 10 committees, including a General Board, that each handle specific areas of programming to bring you the best variety of fun.
CAB's major campus-wide events include:
Cinevents is a committee committed to bringing movies to campus and the campus to movies. The on-campus movie screenings are on Tuesdays at 6:00 PM and 8:30 PM. They also execute excursions to current movies in theaters!
The CAB Comedy Committee is the sector of Campus Activities Board that puts on improvisational and stand-up comedian performances, as well as competitions and fun activities for students. All events are free and occur throughout the semester both on and off campus. Past events include Spring Weekend comedians such a Colin Jost and Tig Notaro, Welcome Week performances from Chris Gethard and Kate Berlant, as well as the annual Last Comic Standing student competition.
