Bored? Not at Saint Leo

After a long day of classes, exams and important meetings, many students look for fun things to do on and off campus, but you don’t have to look too far to find some great entertainment and fun and at a cost that won’t break your wallet. Here are some things to do both on and off campus at Saint Leo!

CAB Events – CAB stands for Campus Activities Board. They are responsible for planning both on and off campus events. Looking to make a new t-shirt, ring or other fun novelty? CAB has got you covered. They offer many free make-your-own giveaways. Look for those scattered throughout the semester. Another great fun activity is CAB Bingo. Over $1,000 in prizes are given out once a month and all you need is a small canned good donation. This isn’t your grandma’s Bingo, this is way more fun and a great time with friends for all.

But what CAB is well known for are the $5 trips. Have you ever wanted to go catch a baseball game, hockey game or go to a theme park? Ever want to try indoor sky diving or check out the mystical land of Medieval Times? CAB does that too! Look out for their annual trips to Universal Studios or Busch Gardens every semester and for their annual Halloween events, Halloween Horror Nights and Howl-O-Scream. All of this for only $5. That includes round-trip bus transportation and in some cases, a meal voucher. Not to mention the free movie trips every month held at Muvico in Tampa. Make sure to check out www.saintleotickets.com to purchase your tickets and to see what trips are coming up soon. CAB is your one stop shop for fun trips and great day events that will leave you less than bored.

Not to mention, cheering on your Lions as they compete is always fun and a great way to embrace school spirit.
