Campus Activities Board, the Student Government Association and 31 Ambassadors hosted a board painting party for registered student organizations (RSOs) at the Alumni Center last Friday.

Large, white wooden boards were supplied to RSOs to be decorated for homecoming week.

Snacks were also provided.

The RSOs brought their own paint and created fun designs that showed off their RSO, the homecoming theme, and their love for ULM.

The boards are recycled and repainted white every semester, so that new designs are seen every year.

The boards are displayed all over campus throughout homecoming week.

“The boards are there mostly to show that on-campus RSOs are excited about homecoming. It’s to get students and the public excited too,” said Nirali Patel, CAB Homecoming Week Committee Head and junior secondary education major.

The boards have been a tradition at ULM for years, but this year was the first year that a painting party was hosted for students to gather and paint the boards together.

The idea was brought up at a CAB meeting as committee members were trying to think of new traditions to start on campus.

Katee Fairchild, who attended the paint party for her RSO Up ‘til Dawn, enjoyed the party.

“It was a great idea that should become a tradition. It was fun to see all the other organizations all come together as one,” Fairchild said.

Look for the boards lining the roads of campus during homecoming.
