If you're not into the political sphere of ASUP, Campus Program Board, more commonly known as CPB, is another great way to get involved with student government. If you're interested in being behind the scenes at school events, CPB is for you. This organization hosts several of the social events around campus for your entertainment.

For instance, we play the films shown in BC Auditorium every weekend; this week we're showing "The Proposal." Voting for October's films will be happening next week. In addition to films, we're currently planning our biggest event of the semester, Homecoming. It's time to bring school spirit to another level, especially with Wally Pilot returning to the Bluff. Homecoming will be a little different this year with events planned throughout the week (Sept. 28 to Oct. 3), leading up to the game and dance. We're going to "pump up the purple!"

Also in October, we're having our first coffeehouse, featuring Ryanhood, an acoustic duo from Tucson, Ariz. They are amazing musicians who write their own songs as well as do covers. You can find more information about them on their website: www.ryanhood.com. Although we have all these events already lined up for the semester, we would love to hear your opinion about possible future events or ways to improve our current events. We'll have our first meeting tonight, Thursday, September 10 at 5 p.m. in Shiley Hall 123.
