The Activities Programming Board is a student organization responsible for the majority of student entertainment on the academic campus. Since APB is funded by Student Activity Funds, most of its programs are free to students.
The Activities Programming Board, known as APB, is the student-lead organization that fosters school spirit, awareness, diversity and inclusion through a wide-variety of events for the VCU community. APB events include weekly film screenings, weekend events, entertainment, special events, concerts, lectures, Homecoming and Spirit Week.
The weekend programming committee organizes monthly off-campus events over the weekend. Some examples of weekend events include: transportation to laser tag or bowling with food, and films in the Commons Theater
The entertainment committee organizes monthly events that bring entertainers to campus. Some examples of entertainment events include: a hypnotist, a comedian and celebrity speakers, such as Tyler Oakley.
The special events committee organizes monthly events surrounding special occasions, like holidays. This committee is also responsible for “Relaxation Events” near the end of every semester. Some examples of special events include: Got Pink: Breast Cancer Awareness, An Evening with MLK, and A Great Gatsby Valentine’s Day.
Heavily connected to Spirit events, the concert committee plans two large concerts throughout the year; Homecoming concert, known as RamFest, and Spirit Week concert.
The lectures committee organizes large and mini lectures throughout the year to engage the VCU community in learning and growth.
