Junior Griselda Feliciano has been one of the homecoming co-chairs on CAB for the last two years. When asked what advice she would want to give the new homecoming co-chairs, Feliciano said, "As the homecoming co-chair, you must be responsible and willing to ask for help. You must also be creative because things are going to go wrong and you will need to be creative enough to come up with solutions."

Although it's a huge committment, Feliciano had an overall good experience on CAB. "There's nothing like walking into the dance you helped bring to life," she said. "It's a lot of work, but it's satisfying."

Applications are available in the Student Involvement Resource Center (SIRC). They must be turned in to Coughlin 040 by Tuesday, November 18th, 2008 by 3:00 p.m. When dropping off an application, students should also sign up for an interview time on the CAB bulletin board on Lewis 2.

  1. First of all, that picture of the "decorations" looks likes balls of hair.... but that's besides the point.

    Homecoming Chair is a great way for anyone to get involved. CAB is a pretty stellar organization and I think YOU should give it a try!
