Student Organization Spotlight:
Student Union Board
The Student Union Board (S.U.B.) is an on-campus organization run by students at Hampton University to promote activities within the confines of the Student Center (formerly known as the Student Union). Not to be confused with just on-campus activities, the S.U.B. plans and implements several community service initiatives.
"Within the Hampton Roads area we have volunteered our services in the CANDII Program, the Special Olympics, the Fort Eustis Multiple Sclerosis Walk, as well as several nursing homes in the Tidewater area," said Courtney Southard, the 2007-2008 community service co-chair.
To fulfill the needs of their peers on campus, the S.U.B. has hosted several events which have appealed to the interest of the students. Some examples of past campus activities include: the annual Fright Fest, salsa lessons, speed dating, and movie night as well as both men's and women's appreciation nights.
"Our main objective when trying to satisfy student needs is to give them an opportunity to come together and fellowship during campus wide activities," said Southard.
Next month, in honor of the Christmas spirit and in hopes of adding a more festive mood to campus, the S.U.B. will decorate the Student Center with various ornaments and objects that will increase excitement for the holiday season.
