Student Events and Activities Board
About the SEA Board
As the premier student-run programming board at Nova Southeastern University, the mission of the Student Events and Activities Board (S.E.A. Board) is to be a student-led organization that enhances and engages the Nova Southeastern University (NSU) Community by providing a variety of social, cultural, and traditional events. S.E.A. Board is dedicated to creating a strong campus community, by engaging students through diverse events and providing leadership opportunities.
SEA Board has nine student workers who lead the planning and implementation of the events, an advisor to oversee the students, a programming assistant to aid with the day to day tasks, and many other student volunteers who help make the events successful.

Programming Board Positions
President: Katie Pope
The President of SEA Board oversees the total operation of the organization. This includes interpreting the SEA Board Constitution, planning and implementing staff meetings, maintaining staff morale and productivity, and working closely with the advisor on assigned tasks and projects. The President plans staff bonding, retreats, and aids in the training of new members.
Vice President of Membership and Development: Dani McCalla
SEA Board loves our volunteers and recognizes that we are not nearly as successful or have as much fun without them! The Vice President of Membership and Development keeps track of all of our wonderful volunteers, and sets up bi-weekly meetings to keep everyone informed on upcoming events and opportunities. The VPMD makes sure the organization is on the same page, and works hard to recognize our members during birthdays as well as determining the Member of the Month award!
Traditions Chair: Sasha Pimentel
NSU, while a relatively young institution, holds many traditions which are implemented and progressed by the Vice President of Traditions. One such event is Sharkapalooza, held on the first Friday of the fall semester where students can enjoy free food, local vendors, novelties, and learn how to get involved on campus. Other traditions include Homecoming Week, Crunch Brunch, the Welcome Back Carnival, and NSU’s Got Talent. The Vice President of Traditions works closely with clubs and organizations on campus as well as local vendors in order to provide NSU Students with as many opportunities as possible!
Marketing Chair: Aubrey West
Advertisement is one of the most important aspects of event planning and implementation. The Vice President of Marketing and Promotions uses creative marketing plans to excite and inform NSU students about our upcoming events. These plans include posters, flyers, handbills, and other types of guerilla marketing. Look out for our promotions and freebies!
Entertainment Chair: Danielle McCalla
Who says there is nothing to do on campus?! The Entertainment Chair works hard to host exciting events for our students to kick back and enjoy because they deserve to have fun! Some events include cover bands and artists, magicians, hypnotists, and much more! Entertainment events generally have free food and giveaway items that students can take back with them, so make sure you come out and enjoy our free on-campus entertainment!
Cinema Tuesday Chair: Allyn Abadie
Ever feel like having a movie night? Perfect, the Cinema Tuesday Chair is here for you! Once a month on a once-common Tuesday, the Chair chooses a cinematic picture for all to enjoy. These events include giveaway items, movie-ready snacks, and tons of movie-theater atmosphere to make your watching experience incredible. Have a cool movie in mind? Let us know.
SEA Thursday Chair: Dbora Lee
SEA Thursday has become a welcomed tradition here at NSU. The Event is hosted bi-weekly in the UC Spine from 12:00pm-1:00pm on Thursdays! The campus gathers for free food, music, and other themed activities determined by the SEA Thursday Chair. Clubs and organizations on campus are welcomed to table as well as outside vendors in order to inform NSU students of on and off campus opportunities. RadioX, the NSU radio station, provides music and entertainment! If you aren’t there, where are you? If you are interested in signing up your organization to participate in SEA Thursday, log onto the OrgSync Web site, go to your organization's forms, and complete the SEA Thursday Tabling Form.
Multicultural and Diversity Chair: Daesha Roberts
NSU is an incredibly diverse and multi-cultured campus. The Multicultural Chair offers the NSU community a look into the diversity within the college through a handful of exciting events. These events include food from different cultures, music from different countries, and general information on minorities that you would never have known! The celebration of diversity is one of the main results of the Multicultural Chair! Past events include African Student Day, Global Village, and Que Viva Mexico!
Trips and Recreation Chair: Dom Gonzalez
Let’s be honest, who wants to stay on campus ALL the time? South Florida is meant to be seen! The Trips and Recreation Chair plans multiple events designed to get students off campus and enjoy the culture of South Florida. Past events include Halloween Horror Nights, a day trip to Key West, and a Call of Duty Tournament among others. Students are either taken for free or given an extreme discount offered only to NSU students. On campus events include pool parties, dodge ball tournaments and more! Take a trip with SEA Board and live a little livelier.
Programming Assistant: Erica Rayter
So you’re probably wondering what in the world is a programming assistant? They are a BLESSING. The programming assistant supports the programming board with day to day tasks. For example, managing the budget, providing stories of valor and love, and just being a positive influence on the team! Requirements for the programming assistant include telling funny, side-splitting jokes, mastery of excel and administrative duties, and having consistently great hair days.
Advisor: Tara Centeno
The Advisor directly advises the student program board members. In general, they are our inspiration and our challengers who push us to create events that turn out much bigger than our individual selves. It is the role of the advisor to provide for the student programming board and be our safety net if we do so need. Daily tasks for the advisor include demonstrating mom-like tendencies, glaring menacingly at random DOSA staff members, and appearing at every event because they love S.E.A. Board! Requirements include a sense of humor, a snuggie for when the office gets a little cold, and a genuine love for programming.
Looking to become more involved with SEA Board? We would love your help! We are always looking for volunteers to help set up and run events! Make sure to attend our general meetings that happen every other Monday from 12:00pm to 1:00 p.m. in the Rosenthal Student Center, Room 200. Don’t forget to like us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and check us out on OrgSync ! If you have any questions or comments, please email SEA-Board@nova.edu, or call the office at (954) 262- 7223. Feel free to visit us in the SEA Board office located in the Office of Student Activities at the Don Taft University Center. We hope to see you soon!
SEA Board asks that all NSU students bring their SharkCard to get into the events. See you at the events, Sharks!
