The Campus Activities Board (CAB) is comprised of six committees that each address a different aspect of social programming at Gettysburg College. The committees include Live Music, Traditions, Special Events, Late Night Programming, First Year Events, and Movie Nights. In addition to the six committees, we also co-host and co-sponsor many events with the Attic, which is an on-campus student-designed night club. Through these seven committees, CAB is able to provide a social outlet for the entire campus community.
The Attic committee is involved in the planning of high-energy parties, smaller concerts, and Happy Hours in the Attic venue. The Attic hosts popular themed events, such as the Decades Party, the Trump Party, and the Tropics Party in addition to the Happy Hours that sometimes feature small bands or artists, such as Matt Santry and Austin Kyle, for a chance for students to eat and socialize. The Attic also provides a venue for other forms of fun events, such as Glow Parties and Bingo Night or Casino Night where students have a chance to win some great prizes.

The Coffeehouse committee regularly provides a comfortable and intimate setting for students to enjoy an array of musical guests who vary in genre, instruments, and often include a single artist performing. Taking place in the campus lounge, the Junction, students are able to listen to new up and coming acts in a "coffeehouse" atmosphere in large couches surrounding the stage, while drinking coffee and enjoying appetizing refreshments. In the past, this group has attracted less well-known but very talented performers such as Tamara Bedrickey, Stephen Kellogg, Shwa, Libbie Schrader, Meg Allison, Jason Myles Goss, the Alfred James Band, the Black and Tan Fantasy Band, Nelly's Echo, Andy Suzuki and the Method, and Jeff LeBlanc.
The Concert committee is responsible for the planning and execution of the annual Fall and Spring Concerts. Past concerts have included such noteworthy groups as Busta Rhymes, Rusted Root, Blues Traveler, Ziggy Marley, Ani DiFranco, Dispatch, Live, Common, Matt Pond PA, Tobey Lightman, Howie Day, Blessed Union of Souls, Virginia Coalition, Maroon 5, Pat McGee Band, Guster, Pat Green, Hellogoodbye, Say Anything, Polysics, Young Love, Augustana, Reel Big Fish, Super Mash Brothers, Sister Hazel, Chiddy Bang and Hoodie Allen, and Lee DeWyze. Most recently, the committee brought Sage the Gemini and DJ Beauty and the Beatz to campus.

Late Night Programming
The Late Night Programming committee regularly plans small events throughout the year and one large event at the end of each semester. The committee is also responsible for the monthly Midnight Madness, for which Servo opens at night and serves snacks such as nachos, hot dogs, and mozzarella sticks. Some of the smaller events include ping pong tournaments and quiz nights. In the past, the large program has featured a casino night, an ice skating rink, inflatables, crafts, and other activities.

Movie nights occur almost every month in the Junction where students may watch movies that are not yet on DVD in a comfortable atmosphere of couches, free popcorn and soda, and a medium-sized movie screen, along with two other smaller televisions that students may view the movies on as well. We also have special movie nights where students are provided with free transportation, if needed, to go to the Gateway Movie Theater and buy discounted tickets to see movies currently showing.

The Special Events committee brings unique forms of entertainment to campus. They have successfully brought different magicians, comedians, such as Robbie Printz, Jen Kober, Tracey Ashley, and Daniel Kinno, and A Capella groups, such as Chapter 6 and Blue Jupiter to campus. They host transportation to Washington D.C., the National Apple Harvest Festival, and to New York City to see a choice of Broadway shows, as well as various other activities or trips, such as snow-tubing, throughout the year.

The Traditions committee is responsible for annual programming events that the entire campus community can share in. These events include Oceanfest, a special seafood dinner, in September, Snowball, a winter formal occurring in February, and Springfest, a three-day outside event in April, which brings concerts, food, and novelty items to the campus.
