What is the Student Activities Board?
In the summer of 2015 Vice President of Student Services, Brad Davis, sat in his office pondering how to improve the overall student experience at Southwestern Christian University. After several hours of intense meditation, Student Life brainstorming sessions with students and staff members, several proposal adjustments, and a fateful President’s Cabinet meeting, the Student Activities Board (SAB) was born.
The SAB will be tasked with the responsibility of organizing evening/weekend trips to off campus destinations/events that will be available for all traditional students on a limited first come first serve basis. This will consist of reserving university transportation in advance, inquiring about pricing, and deciding date and time of said events prior to submitting a final proposal to the Director of Student Life for final approval and allowing time for purchases that may be required.
Composition of SAB

Trips with Student Activities Board (SAB) vary in cost, depending on the activity and the length of the trip, but all activities/trips are subsidized by the SAB, making the cost to the student as minimal as possible. All equipment is either provided at no cost by the Student Activities Board, or rented on a per trip basis. Either way, we make it easy!
An active campus environment is a crucial component of a co-curricular educational experience. Our mission is to provide SCU students with quality experiences that ultimately promote personal enrichment and community enhancement. Through well- organized activities/trips, participants will have the opportunity to develop life-long friendships and leadership skills, as well as enhance their abilities to work with others.
Who Can Participate?
The Student Activities Board program at Southwestern Christian University makes it possible for everyone on campus to get out and enjoy Oklahoma City as well as the great outdoors of Oklahoma while taking part in activities that are both enjoyable and sometimes challenging. Our activities are open to all students on campus and are built to be enjoyable, educational, and challenging. Finally, the SAB is made up of a committee of students that are responsible for organizing all SAB trips/activities. Each SAB member serves a 1 year term, which provides opportunities for other students to be involved as much as possible. The SAB is advised by the Director of Housing and Residence Life.
