Our Mission

The Southeastern Louisiana University Campus Activities Board provides a wide range of programs to enrich the social and educational experience of our fellow Lions.

CAB offers students opportunities to participate in leadership, while creating events that are impactful, relating to pride, promoting retention, and creating an experience. We’re the best in campus entertainment, traditions, culture, and spirit – for students, by students.


Miss SLU

Miss Southeastern

CAB has sponsored the Miss Southeastern pageant since the 1970's. Each Miss Southeastern goes on to compete in the Miss Louisiana pageant.  She gets to participate in many exciting events throughout the year as she represents Southeastern.

 Gumbo Yaya

Gumbo Ya Ya

During Homecoming Week in the Fall, CAB sponsors the traditional Gumbo Ya Ya. Over 3,000 students enjoy gumbo, bread, soft drinks and cake in the Student Union Park. It also features different entertainment each year such as inflatables, wax hands, and music.



Strawberry Jublie

Strawberry Jubilee

Every spring since 1980, the Campus Activities Board has sponsored Strawberry Jubilee. This event provides the Southeastern community with free food and entertainment. Our Miss Southeastern assists with cutting the traditional strawberry cake. Also, student organizations setup tables and sell various items.
