Only one group brings films, air guitar championships and LocoPops to campus: the Carolina Union Activities Board.
CUAB uses student fees to fund all of its programing and brings a variety of activities to campus.
“Each student has paid for what our group puts on,” said Amanda Kao, CUAB president. “We make it our job to bring diverse, fun activities so everyone can enjoy them.”
There are 18 committees as part of the group, specializing in areas from film to aesthetic expression.
A few new committees were created this year, including the media features and aesthetic expression committees.
The media features will focus on generating publicity for CUAB and the aesthetic expression committee is “centered around beautiful things,” Kao said.
Some committees are more recognizable than others, such as the film, fun and music committees.
The film committee brings recently released film s to the Union Auditorium. There are two screenings every weekend on Friday and Saturday. Admission is free with a valid OneCard.
“We just try to do everything we can to offer a variety of movies to everybody,” said Kevin Nguyen, chairman of the film committee.
