The Cascadia Activities Board is a group of six student event coordinators that plan on campus events and activities for students. CAB plans social, recreational, entertainment, and cultural events all over campus.  CAB plans a variety of different events including, but not limited to: dances, movie nights, carnivals, casino nights, guest speakers, musical performances, arts and crafts events, group outings and more!  

CAB is always looking for volunteers to help out at their events. If you are interested in helping set up, tear down, or work at an event, please contact CascadiaActivitiesBoard@Cascadia.edu

Cascadia Activities Board Chair

 Name: Ellie Boone

 

 Position/Title: Cascadia Activities Board Chair

 

 High School you graduated from (and city):

  South Whidbey High School on Whidbey Island, WA

 

 What are you studying?

 I am currently working towards my AA degree in integrated studies. Then a major in community psychology and a masters in educational leadership and counseling.

 

 Why did you choose to attend Cascadia?

 I actually discovered Cascadia College by total accident! I eventually chose it because of how unique it is. Cascadia is not the traditional Community College. Students are really involved here and there is always something fun going on at campus. Now, I get the opportunity to do my part in making the campus a place students want to be at. Which is what attracted me in the first place.

 

What are your hobbies/interests?

In December of 2016, I received my black belt in martial arts! But, when I'm not chopping pieces of wood in half, I like to nap a lot. I also enjoy hitting the mountains for a good ski trip, swimming and watching a lot of reality TV, especially House Hunters, The Bachelor in Paradise and Chopped. Pinterest is also one of my biggest supporter in all of my life goals, including my inspired DIY crafts, my perfect house, my dream wedding and about 3400 recipes that I swear I will get around to trying someday.

 

 What are your plans after Cascadia?

After earning my Integrated Studies Degree from Cascadia College, I plan transfer to a four year university in the Seattle area, and major in community psychology. Then I will continue to expand my knowledge in the student administrative field by working towards my masters degree in educational leadership and counseling. My ultimate career goal is to work in the student success department at either the high school or college level. My current student life advisors Becky Riopel, Shandy Stomieroski, and Kirk Heynen have left such a great impact on my life and showed me my passion is in student success. I hope to one day, be able to do the same for students.

 

Why should students get involved in Cascadia Student Life?

Someone once told me, Cascadia College is a two year college, with a four year college feel. Which is so true. There are always fun activities going on here. When students are involved on campus, they have a better college experience, meet new people, and just HAVE FUN! You only are in college for a few short years, so why not make it the best it can be. Also, you get free stuff, and what college kid doesn't like free stuff.

CAB  Social Issues Coordinator

 Eric E web photoName: Eric Espinoza

 

 Title/Position: Social Issues Coordinator

 

 High School you graduated from (and city):

Juanita High School in Kirkland

 

What are you studying?

Right now, I'm working towards my Associates Degree in Integrated Studies. 

 

Why did you choose to attend Cascadia?

It was my goal to go to a two year college right out of high school and once I visited the Cascadia Campus, there was no longer a question of where. The campus was a good fit for me from the first time I stepped foot on it. I signed up for classes the next day and here I am now!

  

What are your hobbies/interests? (outside of school)

If you’ve ever met me, you know that I talk about movies a lot. Whether it’s a reference, a quote, or a recommendation you usually can’t get me to shut up once I start talking about film. If I don’t come back on a Monday having gone to the movies that weekend, it probably means I had a disappointing weekend (even if my wallet isn’t complaining). I’m pretty relaxed when it comes to hobbies, though I’m always looking for something new to try out. Even though my parents took my dogs along with them when they moved this summer, my dogs are also super important to me and I talk about them way too much.

 

What are your plans after Cascadia?

At the end of last year, I thought I had a clear life plan post-Cascadia, but now I’m not so sure. After a summer full of massive life changes, that isn’t the case anymore. I know that I want to attend a college in Washington (or at least in the PNW), so now it just comes down to deciding between UW Bothell, UW Seattle, and Western Washington University. At the same time, I’m currently juggling at least a dozen possible majors – including but not limited to English, Communications, Marketing, Political science, etc. Hopefully this will become clearer during this school year!

 

Why should students get involved in Cascadia Student Life?

I think that Student Life at Cascadia is much more rewarding than most people would expect. In high school, for me, Student Life seemed to be more of a popularity contest than anything, but that isn't the case here. Events are not geared towards anyone in particular, but they tend to be geared towards everyone on campus. It makes for an incredibly inclusive environment and the rewarding feeling that comes with providing that is incomparable. Not only that, but I think that Student Life is an important factor in building relationships and making connections, much more so you might were you to only attend classes.

CAB Global Arts & Culture Coordinator

 Name: Yintong "Grace" Wang

 

 Title/Position: Global Arts & Culture

 

 High School you graduated from (and city) 

 I haven't graduated from high school yet, I am currently taking the high school completion program courses at Cascadia College. 

 

 What are you studying?

 Accounting

 

 Why did you choose to attend Cascadia?

When I first came to Seattle two years ago, I had a chance to visit most of the colleges in the area. When I took my campus tour at Cascadia, I was first attracted to the beautiful campus, especially the library that we share with UW Bothell. I talked to one of the staff members at the front desk and she kindly answered all of questions I had. I really liked the welcoming atmosphere at Cascadia, so I decided to come here.

 

What are your hobbies/interests?

I am a big fan of reading novels and watching movies (Marvel ones especially). Even though these hobbies have no connection with my career goals, I am still interested in them and feel relaxed while I am doing them. I also like to sing songs during my free time.

 

What are your plans after Cascadia?

I plan on transferring to a four-year university after graduating from Cascadia. I want to major in Accounting. After earning my Bachelor's degree, I may decide to focus in Business Law. Cascadia is helping me set up a really solid foundation both academically and for my future school life.

 

Why should students get involved in Cascadia Student Life? 

 While we are in college, students always go to classes and go back home right after classes end. Students really spend a pretty short time on campus. Cascadia Student Life provides students opportunities to enrich their free time with a variety of inclusive and attractive activities. By joining these activities, students are able to get in touch with more people and make more new friends outside of their classrooms.

CAB Health & Wellness Coordinator

 Name: Jessica Rizk 

 

 Title/Position: Health & Wellness Coordinator

 

 High School you graduated from (and city)

 Mariner High school (Everett)

 

What are you studying?

Computer Science/Business

 

 Why did you choose to attend Cascadia?

 I chose to attend Cascadia because of the amazing opportunities and programs they offer. Just coming on campus to register and ask around, I was welcomed by such kind and motivating staff that there was no other place I could possibly go.

 

What are your hobbies/interests?

 I like to go to the movies, eat out (a lot), travel, and just experience new and exciting things. I also love to spend as much time as I can either with my family, friends, or with my puppy Mocha. As adventurous as I can be, I’m too lazy to not spend most of my time actually sleeping!

 

What are your plans after Cascadia?

My plan after Cascadia is to transfer to UW or Eastern Washington, and to find an internship at a big programming company. Cascadia is offering amazing classes and experiences through hard working and passionate teachers guiding me through my interests and requirements. I have already learned so much about myself and others from my first quarter on campus last year, as this being my second year, I can’t wait for what to come.

 

Why should students get involved in Cascadia Student Life? 

Students should get involved in Student Life, because why not! Constant classes are stressful enough, so getting involve offers a fun outlet of activities right here on campus. It also offers so many opportunities to meet new people who share similar goals and interest, and really builds your social skill and learning about yourself! Besides, it’s too fun and exciting to not get involved!

 Name: Madeline Groth, but you can call me Maddy

 

 Title/Position: Special Events & Traditions Coordinator

 

 High School you graduated from (and city)

  Inglemoor High School in Kenmore

 

 What are you studying?

I am getting my Associates in order to transfer to another school, but I have interest in graphic design and math.

 

 Why did you choose to go to Cascadia?

  I chose Cascadia because it was close to home and I knew that friends from high school went here as well!

 

What are your hobbies/interests? (Outside of school)

Film is a big part of my life and something I am very passionate about, I would love to be able to have a career in that industry. I also like reading and spending time outdoors hiking and camping with friends and family.

 

What are your plans after Cascadia?

I am hoping to transfer to UW Bothell or Seattle once I get my AA. I want to continue studying design and math and finding the ways that they can be combined. Cascadia has helped me a lot, from figuring out what I want to do for a career to teaching me about team work and leadership. And this will be useful in every part of my life once I leave Cascadia. 

 

Why should students get involved in Cascadia Student Life?

Student life gives many opportunities for students to get involved on campus, and make the most of their college experience at Cascadia.
