Student Programming Board

The Student Programming Board (SPB) is a campus organization that allows students to plan and produce special events on campus.

SPB sponsors events like concerts, lectures, films, and novelties throughout the year. SPB strives to bring quality entertainment and educational programs to campus that complement the mission of the University and the Division of Student Affairs.

Members of SPB are committed to providing valuable educational experiences outside the classroom and hope to serve the cultural, educational, recreational and social interests of the W’s student body. By becoming directly involved in planning and presenting these events, students have the opportunity to develop many life skills, including leadership, management, public relations, decision-making and creative thinking.


Upcoming Student Life Events

  • August Orientation Thu. 2 Aug, 2018 (8:30 am - 5:30 pm) August Orientation will consist of both Freshmen and Transfers combined. Orientation is a program that will assist both Freshman and Transfer students to have a smooth transition as they start their new journey here at The W. Orientation will give students the opportunity to learn more about the University, services offered to students, and academic programs, along with enrolling in classes for the upcoming fall semester. During Orientation you will get to meet and get to know your upcoming classmates and engage with currently enrolled W students. You will also get the opportunity to connect with members of the University's faculty and staff. Orientation does not stop at just students. We also have a parent/ family orientation experience that accompanies most of the Student's Orientation sessions. We develop programming for parent and family members that are specific to their needs.  We look forward to seeing you at Orientation! Welcome to The W family!!
