Campus Life  

Programming Board


AQPB is your campus Programming Board that organizes social and academic events outside the classroom. As the largest event planning group under the direction of Campus Life we are able to put what we learn in the classroom to use for you in marketing, event planning, and event implementation.


We meet on Wednesdays at 5 p.m. in the Loutit Room of the Wege Center. Meetings are open and we are always looking for new members. Join us! For more information, contact Kay Borst (President) at or call (616) 632-2460. You can also find us on Facebook at Aquinas College Programming Board.
