Program Board

From organizing well-beloved traditions such as Bingo for Books, Winter Ball, Pushball, and Springfest to creating new events like Food Festival, Drag @ Mac, Coffee House Jam, and speaker events, Program Board members work collaboratively with other student organizations and departments to provide (on and off campus) educational, social and cultural programming to Mac students.

Partners in Programming is an effort to increase student programming in the Campus Center.

Funds can be granted to any amount of up to $500 for a recognized student organization.
