Activities Board means entertainment
The Campus Activities Board is known as source for entertainment on campus. Providing students with an alternative to downtown nightlife, the group hosts a variety of cultural and comedy events in addition to planning road trips to such places as St. Louis and Chicago.
Perhaps the largest event is the annual Family Weekend. Occurring during the fall semester, the board plans a variety of activities and entertainment for Hawkeye families to enjoy while visiting their students.
Though Family Weekend is a once-a-year occurrence, the group hosts many other nightlife events throughout the year, such as a Haunted House, laser tag, and a Guitar Hero tournament. Each week, it also screens new movies in the IMU at $3 per ticket. These films have usually not yet been released to Blu-ray/DVD, Redbox, or Netflix and evening showings are offered Thursday through Saturday, with a matinee on Sunday.
