Panther Portrait: CABapalooza



Students filled the Maucker Union ballroom on Thursday, April 18 for CABapalooza, an annual event organized by the UNI Campus Activities Board.

The evening was filled with games and activities.

“We had an obstacle course, meltdown, a velcro wall, Jenga, giant checkers, bag toss, wax hands, along with free food and many prizes,” said Mallorie Hueber, junior elementary education major and CAB’s spirit executive.

The biggest prizes available included several Amazon Echo Dots, a 32-inch TV and a kayak.

Tied in with the fun lay the overall purpose of the celebration.

“CABapalooza is our end-of-the-year event,” said Mackenzie Misenheimer, a junior communications major who serves as the chair of the “CAB Live!” committee. “It’s a big celebration for all of the events we’ve done throughout the year. Its main purpose is to bring students together to relieve some stress because this time of year gets super stressful.”

“The best part of this event is seeing so many people here,” Misenheimer said. “It’s fun to see college students on the inflatables, just letting go. Like, even though everyone has homework to do, we all just come together and have a good time.”
