We, the Zips Activities Board, recognize that student involvement is an integral part of a successful college experience; therefore, our purpose is to provide enriching and enlightening programs in an effort to celebrate the diverse student population at The University of Akron.
… a major student organization at the University of Akron that plans regularly-scheduled events that stimulate, educate, and entertain students, faculty and staff at the University of Akron and the surrounding community. Being a part of ZAB will enhance your collegiate experience through leadership opportunities, new experiences, and a distinct campus community!
The Zips Activities Board is composed of two major members, Associate Members and Executive Board Members.
Executive Board Members
Associates are the backbone of our organization and are the main faces you see representing ZAB at events. They staff our events and help students by answering any questions or concerns they may have. To become an associate you must attend biweekly associate meetings and volunteer for two events. Associate meetings are biweekly Mondays starting August 28th @ 4:30 PM. After working two events you get a free t-shirt and the ability to sign up for events early.
The ZAB Executive board is made up of seven chairs: the President, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Chair, Fine Arts Chair, Special Events Chair, Health & Wellness Chair, Social Media & Engagement, and Traditional Events Chair. These student leaders are responsible for scheduling, coordinating, and bringing ZAB’s events to life. Apply to become an executive board member when the application goes live in RooConnect, usually in mid-February.
