What is the SAB?
Here at the Student Activities Board we provide events that give students the opportunity to meet new people, make meaningful connections, learn something new and have fun!
SAB strives to provide a variety of high quality, engaging, and entertaining events reflective of the diverse needs and interests of our student body. SAB works collaboratively to promote community engagement and student learning through social, educational, cultural and recreational programming while honoring campus traditions and complementing the academic mission of the university.
SAB is made up of committees (Pop Culture & Concerts, Cinema & Dance, Spirit & Traditions, and Collaborative Events) that are run by volunteer student members.
Any UAS student can join SAB! We invite you to come to our meetings and voice your ideas and opinions. We meet weekly during the fall and spring semesters.

Humans vs. Zombies
Humans vs. Zombies (HvZ) is a week long game of moderated tag played at UAS once a year during the fall semester. Human players must remain vigilant and defend themselves with Nerf blasters to avoid being tagged by a growing zombie horde. Registration and gameplay typically occur in later September or early October each year. Sign up to play in the SAB office during registration week.
Held on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving each year, this event brings together the UAS community for a delicious feast in the Lakeside Grill. The menu includes traditional fixings and vegan/vegitarian options. Lantern lighting in the Mourant Courtyard caps off the evening's festivities.
UAS' oldest and coldest tradition! Students, staff, faculty, and community members alike gather each year to jump into the freezing cold waters of Auke Bay Harbor to be invigorated, prove their ruggedness, and raise money for a worthy cause! The 19th annual Polar Plunge occured on January 21st, 2017, as part of UAS' Winterfest suite of events. This year we raised over $500 for the UAS Care Team, which supports students in need. Keep an eye out for the 20th annual event in spring of 2018 - it will be our biggest and most exciting Plunge yet!
Community Egg Hunt
UAS Students, staff, and faculty with children between the ages of 0-10 are invited to campus for a large-scale egg hunt. Candy, small prizes, and pictures with the Bunny can be expected. The event is held in Mourant Courtyard, the Saturday before Easter each year.
Carnival games, prizes, a dunk tank, cotton candy, and messy twister are just a few of the highlights each year at this semester-end celebration for all students. Look for this event to occur two weeks before spring Finals Week on a Friday each year.
