Student Activities Office: College Programming Board (CPB)

CPB logoCPB is a student-run organization charged with the creation, organization, and implementation of inclusive programming for the students of Claremont McKenna College. 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.

We value your input and involvement with helping to shape programs that will ignite interest and participation from our peers. To contact the board with event ideas or suggestions, or to learn more about becoming a member, please email us at cpb@cmc.edu.
