Campus Activities Board
Warner Pacific’s Campus Activities Board (CAB) is a student leadership vehicle which aims to create a welcoming, diverse, and inclusive environment on campus through various activities which focus on enriching campus life, promoting student involvement, and fostering a positive co-curricular atmosphere. CAB’s primary goal is to build community and involvement among the student body by extending the Knight experience outside of the classroom.
CAB is responsible for programming in intramurals, outdoor recreation, & other special events. CAB is dedicated to recruiting, hiring, selecting, promoting, and retaining a competent and diverse professional and paraprofessional team that reflects the diverse community at Warner Pacific University. Membership in CAB consists of two officers who are hired for one-year terms. Questions and concerns about CAB are handled directly by the Student Engagement Coordinator.

Cross-cultural engagement provides an opportunity for personal development, social-awareness and intellectual growth through interactions with people and worldviews that are different from your own. Every year two to four WPU students take the opportunity to spend a semester off campus through one of the Best Semester programs. Check out the nine locations (three state-side and six international) and learn how to apply.
Intramurals is run by Campus Activities Board (CAB) members. The purpose of the Intramural Program is to provide an opportunity for the Warner Pacific University community to participate in a variety of competitive and non-competitive sports and activities. The Intramural Program seeks to complement the educational endeavors of the university by providing fun, safe, and structured experiences that promote the physical, mental, and social development of every student.
Spiritual Life and Local Churches
Campus Ministries exists to help you explore holistic spirituality. We see our regular gatherings (chapel, small groups, and special events) as opportunities to dive into your own questions and purpose within a safe and inclusive community. WPU believes our Christ-centered mission is one of the best ways to build community and offer guidance that is Life-Informing, Life-Inspiring and Live’able.
Serving others is woven into the entire fabric of the WPU experience including classes, athletics, residence life and more. You’ll find a number of co-curricular activities specifically devoted to helping you use your unique talents and gifts to make the world better for others, preparing you for a lifetime of meaningful servant-leadership. Warner Pacific’s Local Connect program links students to meaningful local, long-term service opportunities that align with your unique skill set and interests.
You can get involved by volunteering at a number of projects throughout the year. More details are available through the links below.
One great thing about being a part of a small campus community is that every student has the opportunity to lead. If you want to contribute to the campus and help build a community that values each of its diverse members, there is a place for you. We encourage you to take ownership of your experience here and get involved in something on campus that you are passionate about. You can help build a student body that is dynamic, inclusive and aware of what is going on in our city, our country and our world.
Student leadership through ASWPU includes roles in Student Government, Campus Activities Board, Service Learning, Campus Ministries, and Residence Life. You can also lead on campus through positions in Athletics and through serving as a Peer Mentor through First Year Learning Communities. More information about each area is available through the links below.
Living on Campus
There’s nothing quite like living on a college campus. You’re near class, the library, and faculty offices. You’re next door to someone in that 8 a.m. class who reminds you about that reflection paper due tomorrow. And that time you save commuting from home or an apartment? You can use it to study. Or work. Or explore Portland.
But most importantly, life on campus is about the people you get to know who can stay with you for life. Maybe it’s the late-night conversations in the residence halls, building a team to showcase your talent in the Undees, or cheering on your favorite Knights team. Residence Life gives you the chance to live and learn in a diverse, supportive and vibrant campus community. With two residence halls and a variety of apartment and house living options, there’s flexibility on campus.
