Committees


Arts

The Arts Committee explores different art forms, from ceramics to spoken word poetry, to heighten awareness to the art around us. We appreciate the diverse artistic skill set of the UF student body, but no artistic background is necessary to enjoy our events. Past Arts Committee events include RPB’s Holiday Crafts and Cookies events and Gator Tie-Dye.

Directors: Leah Jones and Tamia Robinson



Films

The Films Committee breaks the monotone day-to-day routines of academic life, offering students a time to relax with friends with weekend movie showings and themed Trivia Nights. We are not professional film critics, but we have fun conversations on current movies and work with GatorNights to bring free movies to campus. Past Films Committee events include Bohemian Rhapsody and A Conversation with Ron Stallworth (from BlackKklansman).

Directors: Anjum Patel and Tanika McKenzie


Special Events

The Special Events Committee creates stronger student communities on campus by connecting student interests and current events. Our members are passionate about putting on diverse creative experiences for the student body by including different aspects of RPB’s committees. Some of our past events include Food and Dine Festival, a food-centric cultural showcase involving UF’s cultural organizations, and Love Yo’Self Day, an event focused on self-love.

Directors: Matina Mahansantipiya and Marisa Hart

Talent

The Talent Committee is dedicated to bringing a wide variety of entertainment and performances, including music artists, comedians, speakers and more, to UF’s diverse student body. We strive to unite members of the student body by programming events related to their interests and important moments in pop culture. Some past acts brought to campus by RPB include Jaboukie Young-White, DJ Khaled, John Mulaney and T-Pain.

Directors: Hadley Owen and Eric Etcheverry
