What we do
We are devoted to providing quality entertainment to the Siena community. The purpose of the Student Events Board is to coordinate student entertainment, co-curricular, and cultural programs for the Siena Community – both on and off-campus. Through the use of creativity and ingenuity, the entirely student run organization presents many opportunities for the Siena Community to enjoy not only the academic pursuits of Siena, but also the social aspect.
SEB sponsors traditional types of entertainment in the form of bands, comedians, and speakers, but also presents other non-traditional events designed for Siena such as coffeehouse acts, open mic nights, Winterfest, Charity Auction, annual spring concert, as well as SienaFest. The Board encourages the development of new areas of entertainment based upon student interest. Plus, it's free for all Siena Students to come to our regular events (special events include concerts & philanthropic events)!
Meetings are held every Monday at 5:25 p.m. while classes are in session. Individual Committee meetings are open to all students every Monday from 7-8pm while classes are in session.
Event Planning Committees
Event planning is done by several committees who each specialize in a certain area of event planning. Every committee consists of students interested and meets at the designated times.
SEB has multiple committes that work hard to create a vibrant campus with great events:
Concert: Sienafest is our Spring festival and during that weekend we have our Spring Concert!! Past concert artists include A Boogie Wit da Hoodie, Mac Miller, The White Panda, Jay Sean, Chiddy Bang, and Dashboard Confessional, just to name a few.
Coffeehouse: Events that happen every Thursday night and provide various forms of entertainment including but not limited to bands, games, comedians, musicians, and performers.
Philanthropy: Every Fall we select a local charity and plan a series of events throughout the year that help raise money for that charity such as a live auction, Bingo, and other great events for a wonderful cause.
Festivals: Two major festivals on campus are Winterfest and Sienafest; they usually start on Thursday and run through Sunday. This year Winterfest provided horse-drawn carriage rides on campus and brought an outdoor ice skating rink to campus; Sienafest brings carnival rides, a paint party, and other fun activities to campus!
Family Weekend: In the fall we have a whole weekend dedicated to bringing family members to campus, some entertainment may include an Illusionist, Karaoke, Live music, late night activities, exotic animals, bumper cars, and a carnival!
Siena Night Life: Every Saturday night, SNL provides various forms of entertainment including but not limited to game shows, DIY nights, comedians, movies, and performers.
We bring some pretty cool events to campus, but do you want to know the best thing about SEB? Anyone can join! We love student feedback and ideas - join a committee by attending a meeting Monday 7-8pm in the Sarazen Student Union.
