Earlier this week, Campus Activities Board hosted a Holiday Fair in our McGinley Center to celebrate the beginning of finals and ring in the Holiday season. Campus Activities Board had five tables set up, and many other clubs and organizations had tables as well. Some of the CAB tables included stocking and Santa hat decorating, make your own Christmas ornament, Rice Krispie treat decorating, finals prep goody-bags, and a photo booth.
The biggest attractions of the HolidayFair, however, were the 6 tables lined with Georgetown Cupcakes and the photo opportunity with Mindy the monkey. Campus Activities Board is broken up into 9 committees plus a General Board, and many of the committees had their own special table at the fair. The Comedy Committee really thought outside of the box this year by bringing a monkey and a chinchilla to the fair. People lined up all around just to take a picture with the monkey! Another big hit at the fair was the photo booth. We even had a member of the Executive Board dressed up as Santa for a little bit!
Many other clubs and organizations also had tables at the Holiday Fair as well. For example, the Fordham Marketing Association sold homemade iPhone cases. Some of the booths sold the goodies that they had, while others gave them away for free. However, any of the donations that CAB received went to helping the relief efforts in the Philippines. It was a great way to celebrate the holiday season on campus, and it was also a fun way to kick off finals and the end of the semester.
