CAB received the Outstanding Multicultural Program Award for its program, "A Second Night of Women's Music," which featured Ani Di Franco, Catie Curtis, and two Hamilton alumnae Jess Klein'95 and Jen Shankman'94. The award is given for a program that demonstrates creativity and innovation and that appeals to a diverse group of students. This year was the second consecutive year that CAB has received an outstanding program award. Last year the group received an award for its Acoustic Coffeehouse Series.
Raymond Forslund, a Hamilton senior and one of the two co-chairs of CAB, was also recognized at the conference. Forslund received one of five Outstanding Student Leader Awards, which are given to students who have provided outstanding service to a programming organization on their campus, and who have demonstrated innovation and creativity in their efforts.
"Regionally, CAB is beginning to be recognized as one of the most professionally run and respected student program boards," said Corey Landstrom, program coordinator of Student Activities. "The awards of the past two years illustrate this point."
The Campus Activities Board (CAB) is a student-run organization responsible for the bulk of social programming on the Hamilton campus. Each semester, CAB sponsors a variety of events, including comedians, bands, novelty acts and acoustic coffeehouse performers. Most recently, CAB sponsored the Indigo Girls concert that was held at the Stanley Performing Arts Center in Utica.
