University Activities Board

University Activities Board (UAB) strives to provide activities and entertainment appealing to a wide variety of student interests by acknowledging the unique diversity of the student culture at Lake Superior State University. We seek to encourage student involvement in campus events and to promote University activities and programming.

UAB is charged with the task of providing programming for all Lake Superior State University students. We host traditional celebrations such as Laker Week, and Snowfest, in addition to many other events throughout the year.
