The Grizzly Activity Board is a volunteer student organization that is responsible for designing and implementing a variety of events, programs and services for the college.
They meet weekly throughout the regular school year and meetings are open to the public. The new Executive Board currently includes President Vanios Queen, Vice President of Programming Tiana Hicks, Vice President of Collaboration Chris Darby, Vice President of Finance Chelsa Fenderson, and Secretary Tamara Valdez. Four of the board members are sophomores.
Students can expect a range of different events including comedians and musical performances from GAB this year. “We would like to have more events around the Valley, and a trip for students to go to Santa Fe, New Mexico. Our plan is to have several events throughout the school year” said Queen. One of the more unique aspects of GAB is that $80,000 of student fees is given to the organization to host student events, and these events are drug and alcohol free.
GAB is also in charge of events during week of Homecoming September 26 through October 1. Events include the Chalk the Walk Monday, September 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. located on the sidewalks of the Japanese Gardens where clubs and homecoming royalty advertise.
Homecoming royalty voting will take place in the Student Union Building Solarium 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. electronically. One of the oldest events is the Medicine Show “Laughter Makes the Best Medicine” which takes place Wednesday, September 28. Clubs will put on two to three minute entertainment skits.
Other traditions include ASC’s Bonfire on Thursday, September 29 at 8:30 p.m. free hot chocolate and snacks will be provided. Each club, or clubs working together, nominates two members as their homecoming royalty contestants who, then compete for the official homecoming royalty crowns, presented at the game on Saturday, October 1 at 1 p.m.
Many ASC students, faculty and alumni are very grateful to GAB for all their hard work and for making the campus more entertaining.
