Our Social Pillar within LBSA embodies our overall familia culture. We strive to create an atmosphere for our members that will make them feel at home and comfortable enough to grow as a student and as an individual.
With the help of the other board members, the Director of Social Affairs creates events within and outside of campus to guide our members into the social exposure they desire while additionally helping individuals develop the proper interpersonal communication skills that will help them in the future. The overall goal for events, such as bonfires, potlucks, movie nights, and more is to help our members create long-lasting memories within LBSA and bonds that will last a lifetime.
The Santa Barbara Weekender is a two-day program where all 13 chapters have the opportunity to socialize and network with one other. SB Weekender is typically one of the most notable social events, alongside clubbing events, that brings the largest audience.
Annual Carne Asada
Typically, LBSA hosts an annual carne asada cookout at a park with neighboring ULSA chapters during the beginning of the academic year. During the carne asada, we have plenty of food, games, and a piñata for our members to enjoy!
LBSA’s winter retreat is another social program highly anticipated by our general members. We head to Lake Arrowhead or surrounding areas to destress after the end of the fall quarter and celebrate the upcoming holiday break, such as Christmas and New Year.
At the end of the year, LBSA typically hosts an annual banquet, celebrating the completion of another academic school year, recognizing our board and general member’s accomplishments, honor graduating seniors, and introduce next year’s executive board!
The night will consist of:
– Dessert Table
– Music and Dancing
– Unlimited Photo Booth & Photographer
