MCAB is the largest student programming body on campus. We plan everything from small concerts, Atwater dinners and Free Friday Films to big speakers, large scale concerts and Winter Carnival.

Our mission is the enrich the quality of student life by orchestrating and executing consistent and innovating programming, upholding College traditions and providing support for the whole community, in the spirit of collaboration.

We are made up of a full board of around 50 students broken down into five committees: Concerts, Social, Speakers, Traditions, and Marketing. Each committee is headed by one or two chairs who sit on our executive board along with the President, Vice President and Treasurer.

MCAB is always open to questions and comments! If at anytime you'd like to speak with us, feel free to email us at mcab@middlebury.edu.

What does MCAB have planned for this weekend?

  • Check out our latest events on Facebook and Twitter
  • If you're a student, we'll send an email blast out once a week

Why join MCAB?

You should join MCAB because it's fun. There are perks. If you work an event, you get free admission, a "crew" t-shirt, and you might even get to hang out with some celebrities.

Moreover, you should join MCAB because you get to shape Middlebury. Your friends will be the ones asking you about what bands are coming and how to buy tickets to the semi-formal. You’ll have a great set of organizational and leadership skills, but best of all, you'll always be in the know.

At the beginning of each semester, applications for MCAB will be sent out to the entire student body via email.  To be on MCAB requires an application and interview, and we are looking for enthusiastic and energetic members. 

Can MCAB help my student organization?

Student organizations should first go to the SGA Finance Committee for funding. MCAB can ask a student org to co-sponsor an event, but a group can should not come to MCAB in search of funds.

Don't need funding for your event? Email student_activities@middlebury.edu to see how to get your event programmed.

Can I come perform at Middlebury College?

We love hearing about new performers, bands, and acts. We have a number of venues to perform in, too.

  • First, see our venue descriptions.
  • Second, send an email to mcab@middlebury.edu. Introduce yourself, any connections you have to the Middlebury community, and link to a sample of your work. Same goes for Middlebury students and student bands.

How much money does MCAB have?

The majority of MCAB’s budget is allocated by the SGA Finance Committee, but some support comes directly from the College. Each year the budget changes a bit. 

A concert and a comedian can vary drastically in price. A show in McCullough can be way cheaper than a show in Kenyon. Hence, MCAB’ers must work within a budget and continue to provide for Middlebury students.
