Monmouth College has plenty of student organizations and extracurricular activities to get involved with. With almost too many to keep track of, we want to highlight the purpose and ambitions of each group, in hopes to spread recognition and information so in the future more Scots can join in the fun!

In the spotlight this week is the Association for Student Activity Programming, or more commonly known as A.S.A.P. Comprised of an Advisor, President, and twelve chairman, the team also welcomes any student that is interested in being a part of an organization that implements, plans, and works social and activity-based events on campus. “A.S.A.P. interviews for positions on the executive board in early April for the following school year. Otherwise, one can join the team at any time throughout the semester,” says President Callie Cook.

Those that join work towards a goal while keeping the students and others happy and cooperating with school regulations in bringing fun and games to campus. In doing so, the organization has brought performing arts to campus, such as Monmouth’s Got Talent Show, numerous comedians, mentalists, and hypnotists, in addition to, Top Hat Shows, fire breathers, Dueling Pianos, and ghost hunters. The Coffeehouse series and Perspectives have also been in part to A.S.A.P. including open mic nights, Spoken Word artists, as well as pumpkin paintings, glow yoga, the chocolate fountain, and Random Acts of Kindness. Mostly known for their active hours, the programming group brings Bongo Ball, Neon Golf, laser tag, and the ever fun inflatables to our grounds. However, it doesn’t stop there. A big undertaking, members of A.S.A.P. is responsible for planning activities found at Family Weekend and Homecoming.

With students’ happiness on the line, Cook says, “this year specifically, we have changed up many traditions and have put pressure on our members to bring new ideas to the table.” She also encourages anyone with such ideas or any interest in joining the A.S.A.P. team. Simply do so by contacting Callie at ccook@monmouthcollege.edu. Keep up to date with upcoming by following A.S.A.P. on social media.
