Working in close collaboration with the Student Activities Staff, CPB provides a multitude of programs on nights and weekends for students to enjoy. Past CPB events have included weekly Friday night movies, anti-stress activities during finals, and off-campus excursions to Disneyland, the LACMA, and other iconic Los Angeles destinations.
