The Park Student Activities Board plans activities for Park University students. It hosts about one event every two weeks to provide a fun, planned activity students can participate in.

“Our overall goal is just to like create student involvement on campus and get students out of their rooms,” said Cami Cochran, PSAB president and junior organizational communication major.

Last semester, PSAB put on about seven events ranging from taking a bus to a trampoline park to hosting a viewing party for “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.”

One of the events, which was Cochran’s favorite, was Five Minute Language Lessons, where students could learn words and phrases from multilingual students.

“I really enjoyed it because I think a lot of people enjoyed it, and I always like learning new things like some phrases from Mandarin and Swahili,” she said.

Minute to Win It kicked off the spring semester on Thursday, Jan. 16, which featured fun games and prizes. This was just the beginning for PSAB as it has more events planned for the month of February.

Spirit night at the women’s and men’s basketball games at Breckon Sports Center will take place on Thursday, Feb. 20 at 5:30 p.m. PSAB will be giving out gift cards to the first 30 students that show up. PSAB members will also hand out their new club t-shirts throughout the game.

In honor of Black History Month, Cochran is planning a trip to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and the Jazz Museum.

“I’m excited,” she said. “I went there, and I really enjoyed it a few years ago.”

The trip is scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 26 at 3:30 p.m.

Students who have signed up will take a bus to the museum for a tour of the exhibits.

A new face in PSAB leadership is Ariane Ramalho, a junior business administration major, who started her position as vice president of internal events this semester.

“I will have to organize the events: like make the decorations, help to introduce something if needed and guide the people to like inside the place,” she said.

Ramalho is also excited for the spring formal they are working on, which is currently planned for Friday, March 27.

The spring formal is set to be at the Olde Mill Emporium in Parkville and will start at 8 p.m. However, the theme has yet to be determined.

Be sure to check Crew along with email, flyers and calendars around campus to see the dates and times of more events, and follow PSAB on Instagram @park_psab.
