Between Feb. 5 and Feb. 16, the Fordham Campus Activities Board (CAB) is hosting seven free Valentine’s Day-themed events for students.

CAB is made up of nine different committees that plan free events for students on campus. The most popular event week is Spring Weekend, but CAB also hosts event weeks for Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day and midterms. During these event weeks each CAB committee aims to host a unique event to provide students opportunities for festive celebrations and goodies.

Students involved in CAB meet every week throughout the school year to brainstorm new ideas, discuss the current student body’s interests and change past events. The events are spaced out over a week or more to try to allow a range of opportunities for students to attend.

The Valentine’s Day celebrations kicked off on Sunday, Feb. 5 with CAB’s Weekend Activities Committee (WAC). Many students know WAC for their monthly bingo and weekend outings, WAC brought a group of students to make Love Pies at an off-campus dining establishment, Pugsley’s Pizza.

On Feb. 8, the CAB Concert Committee, who plans the Spring Weekend concert, hosted a giveaway for four different concerts this month at Webster Hall. The raffle included tickets to Fitz and The Tantrums, Claire Rosinkranz, DVSN and Chappell Roan.

CAB’s Cinevents Committee is known for hosting showings of movies for each holiday season. On Feb. 9, Cinevents streamed “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days,” which many know was a Valentine’s Day classic.
On Friday, Feb. 10, CABs Weekend Activities Committee hosted a Valentine’s Day-themed bingo. They gave away prizes including massage gift cards, movie and dinner gift cards, weighted blankets, flowers and teddy bears.

“I went to bingo for the first time on Friday and I was literally on the edge of my seat the whole time. It was so much fun seeing others do the same,” said Norah Mosquea, FCRH ’25. “When I saw that I had cleared my whole board I screamed at the top of my lungs ‘Bingo!!’”

On Tuesday, February 14 CAB hosted Rom-Com Movie Bingo at 7p.m. in Keating 1st.

On Wednesday, Feb. 15 from 4-6 p.m. in the McShane Gallery, the CAB General Board is having an event. The General Board is bringing back stuff-a-plush, in which students will be able to choose between building their own raccoon, dinosaur, sloth or teddy bear stuffed animal.

“With our event being the day after Valentine’s Day, our Gen Board devoted itself to take the route of self-love,” said co-chair of CAB’s General Board Alyssa Curcio, FCRH ’24. The event will have a table to build your own self care bag, an affirmation station, snacks and candy and the newlywed game (for platonic or romantic relationships).

The General Board will also have a table featuring Parade to give out free apparel in all sizes to students, first come first serve.

To close off the holiday week CAB’s Special Events Committee will be tabling on Thursday, Feb. 16 for a variety of giveaways.
