Incoming students invited to help shape student experience with Student Programming Board

Members of the university’s Student Programming Board shapes the student experience like no other facet of #BobcatNation.

The fully student-run organization organizes events throughout the fall and spring semesters — from bingo nights to fall and spring concerts featuring some of the biggest names in music. In fact, the organization hosts at least three events each week.

“SPB is a huge reason why I love this school so much,” said Shannon Flaherty ‘22, president of SPB. “From my first week at Quinnipiac, I knew I wanted to join SPB.” She said she is excited to be able to host regular in-person events throughout the 2021-22 academic year.

Of the countless traditions SPB leads each year, Bobcat Bounce — which entails filling the Quad with inflatable activities — leaps above the competition for Flaherty.

Throughout the year, SPB sponsors traditional late-night events every Friday and Saturday — from film screenings on the first Friday of every month to weekly trivia nights.

Like Flaherty, students can join SPB in the first days as a Bobcat. The organization has a general board as well as committees for each of their different chairs: 

  • Arts & Entertainment

  • Cultures & Conversations

  • Mainstage

  • Marketing

  • Traditions & Community

  • Late Night

To get involved, students can connect with SPB on Instagram and join their DoYouQU page.
