Arts & Entertainment Committee

The Arts & Entertainment Committee is responsible for planning and co-sponsoring educational speakers and events as well as coordinating trips to fine arts opportunities in the Twin Cities based on student interests.

Speakers invited to campus cover a wide variety of backgrounds in effort to engage the student body as a whole, as well as individual interest. Major speakers are invited to campus every other year, trading with the “Big Concert.” Previous speakers have included:

  • Jason Lezak, Olympic champion (Spring 2009)
  • Frank Warren, founder of PostSecret (May 2010)*
  • Frank Abagnale, respected authority on forgery, embezzlement and secure documents - depicted in the movie Catch Me If You Can.(May 2011)
  • Scott Dikkers, founding editior of The Onion (April 2015)

*Exception was made to the 'every other' rule.

This year we will feature small to medium sized speakers, as this is not a ‘Big Speaker” year. In addition to speakers, this committee will focus on identifying fine arts (shows, museums, etc.) in the Twin Cities which we could offer trips to attend.

If you would like to join this committee or have any suggestions to help CAB improve this portion of the on/off campus entertainment please e-mail Mackenzie Venhor.
