What’s Up at EC: CASE renamed ECPB

With all the changes happening on campus, it’s no surprise that student activities are affected as well.

Any Emmanuel student that attends an on-campus event knows about the all-encompassing nature of Campus Activities and Student Events (CASE). Chances are, you were “recruited” to join during your freshman/transfer orientation, attended a couple meetings, and were either fully engulfed by the club or quickly left it.

Or you’ve attended one of their many on-campus events, like Moonlight Breakfast, Mr. Emmanuel, Spring Day, or Clambake, accompanied by the inflatable air-dancers that have somehow become their staple.

Regardless of how you know CASE, you know what it is.

Now, CASE has decided to change its name to ECPB: the Emmanuel College Programming Board, starting this upcoming fall.

“Nobody knew what CASE actually stood for, so we hope in the long run our new name will clear up any confusions,” said Allie Bleier ’14, who will be ECPB’s Executive Director next fall. “Because we are the programming board on campus, the club whose purpose is to put on events for the Emmanuel College community, we wanted to have a name that reflected what we do.”

An important distinction that CASE/ECPB is trying to get out is that its mission and goals have not changed; only its name.

“The purpose of both CASE and ECPB was and will be to provide diverse and socially engaging events and activities that entertain and educate the entire Emmanuel College community,” Bleier said.
