The All-Campus Events Committee is responsible for providing funds and helping hosts plan all-campus events, which may include; concerts, comedy shows, parties, poetry nights, BBQs and many more. The Committee is structured in a way so that all members have an equal say in which events get funded and approved by ACE. Members of the committee are also encouraged to seek out new performers and artists that they would like to see on campus and present these ideas before the committee.
