Topics: Carolina Union Activities Board

The Carolina Union Activities Board, CUAB, is a student-run organization that provides entertainment, events and programming to students. Funded from student activity fees, the group provides films in the Student Union, art in the gallery and various cultural events, such as the air guitar championship in the Student Union Great Hall.

The film series brings movies that have already appeared in theaters but might not yet be available on DVD to campus. Admission is free with a OneCard. There are also a few advanced screenings depending on availability and cost.

One of the widely known committees is the fun committee. Members of the fun committee generate random activities to enliven an ordinary day, such as handing out free popsicles or bringing puppies to the Pit.

CUAB is well-known for the events it plans around the last day of classes. It also partners with the Carolina Athletic Association to bring musical acts to campus each year for Homecoming.
