Student Activities Board (SAB)
Buena Vista University's Student Activities Board's (SAB) is an organization, run by students, that brings diverse social and recreational activities to campus. SAB will provide free, fun entertainment planned to fit the diverse interests of the student body. It is hoped that these shared experiences will help students connect to each other and the BVU community. The SAB ten member executive board leads a committee of members at large in efforts to plan multiple activities for all students each month including Midnight Movie, comedians, and bands. SAB also coordinates a week long Homecoming celebration each fall.
BVU boast of more than 50 active student organizations representing a wide variety of interests, service and disciplines. The majority of BVU student are involved in one or more groups.
