Campus Activities are planned, coordinated and carried out by the campus activities directors with the assistance of Campus Activities Board (CAB)—several selected students. The goal is to offer activities that provide opportunities for fellowship and recreation to all members of the campus community.
A wide variety of events are available throughout the year including movie nights, coffee houses, bowling nights, roller skating parties, Feast of Carols, Powder Puff Football and dances. In addition, CAB plans many non-traditional events with input from the larger student population and supervision from the directors.
The college views these activities as an integral part of each student’s emotional, social and physical development. Spouses and immediate family members of students living off campus are also invited to participate in many of these activities.
Hesston College supports the organization of clubs that provide opportunities for students to further explore specific areas of interest. Current clubs include ping-pong, discussion group, Hesston’s women’s association, grill club, amateur radio, and knitting club. Initially, each club must present a written proposal to the Academic Advisory Board and director of campus activities who will approve club development. Each club must have a faculty or staff member as an active sponsor and promote the mission of Hesston College. Limited funds are available by application. Applications should be in writing and presented to a director of campus activities.
