Special: Fall Activities Board Preview

Hey everyone!

My name is Abhi Kelkar, the Main Chair of Carnegie Mellon University’s Activities Board for this upcoming year. We are the campus’ primary entertainment booking organization in charge of your concerts, lectures, comedians, movies, special events, political speakers, and more. Here’s a special glimpse at just some of the events we have coming up this Fall (with many more)!

September’s Welcome Back Concert is The Mowgli’s! They’re best known for their hit “San Francisco” and the show will be Tuesday, September 8 at 7 p.m. in CUC Rangos.

October will feature the now-annual Activities Board Petting Zoo, featuring animals such as goats, piglets, llamas, and alpacas you can pet and feed. It will be on October 27 on the CFA Lawn unless there is rain.

November features a double-hitter with our not-yet-announced Fall Concert (past bands have included Walk the Moon, Timeflies, and Sleigh Bells) in Weigand Gym on November 21 and AB Films’ showing of Straight Outta Compton on November 20 and 22 in McConomy Auditorium!

Keep an eye out for hints on who the Fall Concert will be in and around October. We may even do a special announcement at one of our events and through The Tartan’s Pillbox section.
