The purpose of the Campus Activities Board, a student-run organization, is to involve students in creating and planning social events for the campus community. CAB aims to provide a diverse range of programs for students that allow them to develop socially, while simultaneously attempting to create a more unified campus. There are three main purposes of the organization, which include:
- Providing social programming for Gettysburg College campus community.
- Challenging its members to be creative and innovative with social programming events. With a coalition between social programming organizations, CAB can encompass the social desires of the campus and become diverse in its vision of events through an active student voice.
- Educating and uniting various groups in the production, promotion, and organization of programs, as well as in the recruitment and retention of members. CAB supports the coordination of various events between organizations during its meetings.
