Seriously, it's so much fun!  We've cut down the application a lot because in the past it's been way too long and formal considering what the AdBoard is really all about: we want students who love KCSA and want to get more involved, bringing whatever skills and experience they have available to the table. 

We do have "official" departments and even titles, but they're more for formality's sake, and we tend to share responsibilities across departments. Not only does this allow people to work on things they're really interested in, but it provides an opportunity to gain experience in numerous areas of running an organization. Personally, I feel joining KCSA and eventually joining AdBoard is one of the best decisions I've made during my years at UIUC (right up there with picking my major!). It's a great way to get relevant, transferrable experience without the same demand of, for example, an internship.

Our application is live starting NOW! For time's sake, we'll accept applications through Sunday, April 16th (so think of it as closing on Sunday at 11:59pm, like those dang Compass assessments). Once you submit your application, we'll work to set up interviews—which are more like informal gatherings to tell us more about what you want to do on AdBoard and what ideas you have. No business suits and no "Where do you see yourself in 5 years?" questions—just bring your smile and enthusiasm!

We hope to hear from many of you!!! In particular, we're looking to grow our media marketing base—so if you like social media, blog writing, etc., this would be a lovely fit for your 2017-18 schedule!

If you have any questions for current members about what it's like being on the board, please feel free to email us at kcsarocks@gmail.com.

Happy New Year, everyone!

In the event you were interested in getting involved in KCSA in ways other than ushering, we have a signup to run the KCSA table at certain shows and events (like the RSO Involvement Fair on Jan. 25th).  No usher training or points required so it's currently open to anyone who's interested!

Questions?  Contact us at kcsarocks@gmail.com and we'll be happy to help.

Looking forward to seeing all of you again!  :)

Great news for all Uni High students who love the arts!

We at KCSA are pleased to announce that we officially have approval to accept registration from students who attend University High School in Urbana.  You'll need to have handy your NetID and an email which you check regularly—then you can register just as a UIUC student would.

All the instructions on how to join KCSA can be found on this page.  We also encourage you to check out our Facebook and Instagram for the latest news!

We're currently not holding any General Meetings since finals are coming up, but starting next semester (likely in February, to give people a few weeks to become acclimated to their new schedules) we will meet every TUESDAY AT 6PM somewhere in Krannert Center.  Details on exact meeting place, activities, and food will always appear in both our weekly newsletters and our Facebook events.

Registration to usher Spring 2017 shows begins the week of JANUARY 9, 2017.  So sign up now and complete your training so you're ready!

Looking forward to seeing you around Krannert!

KCSA President
