TAB to host spooky double feature for Tech students

On Halloween night, the Tech Activities Board will be showing two scary movies to Tech students. Katie Williams, coordinator of Student Activities, said the movies that will be shown are still undecided, but will be posted on TAB’s Facebook page later in the week.

The Halloween movie double feature will be held on Oct. 31 from 9 p.m. until 1 a.m. in the RUC Multipurpose Room. Williams said free drinks and popcorn will be available to everyone that attends the double feature.

“The event is completely free to students,” said Williams. “They only need to bring an Eagle Card to get in.”

TAB is a student organization made up of volunteers that schedule and create campus activities targeted towards all students.

“The types of activities we try to plan are catered to maybe different demographic groups of students, but we try to hit as many as we can with different types of events,” said Williams.

The main goal of TAB is to promote diversity and get all types of students involved in the activities.

In order to have the money available to sponsor these movies and other events, TAB relies on a budget that is given to them by the University.

 “Our budget varies from year to year, and is based on student fees,” Williams said. “There is a fee on your student account that is paid, and we get a portion of that money to do programming.”

This budget funds all of TAB’s events and student activities.

TAB also sponsors giveaways, public speakers, concerts and even comedians.
