The Linfield Activities Board is a body created by the Associated Students of Linfield College to coordinate a variety of social, cultural, educational, and outdoor activities. LAB is made up of six chairs, each held by a Linfield student: Special Events-Ellen Massey, Sports-Lauren Pyrch, Outdoor- Dylan McWharter, Musical Entertainment- Slyvan Tovar, Cultural Events- Chastliynn Tittle, and Secretary-Sarai Utley. The board is overseen by the Vice President of Programming, who is an executive cabinet member appointed by the ASLC President. The VPP for 2013-2014 is Allison Halley.
LAB's annual budget comes from ASLC student body fees. With this money, LAB plans activities at little or no additional cost to Linfield students. Examples of programming include weekly concerts, comedy entertainment, white water rafting, the Wildstock festival and free movies.

My name is Dylan McWharter. I am a Psychology major with a Physics minor from Centennial Colorado. I love music, baseball, and the great outdoors. I am an avid fisherman, camper, hiker, biker, climber... anything that will get me out into the wilderness. I am very excited to plan all of the outdoor events to be had and I love the freedom of pursuing any activity that pops into my head. I expect some awesome adventures next year and hope to make good friends with all of the people that share my passion for the outdoors!

My name is Kacie Copeland and I am the new secretary for Linfield Activities Board. I am a business management major and I am from McMinnville, Oregon. I have always wanted to become involved on campus and I am excited to start by junior year here at Linfield by helping with events around campus! I believe that this year is going to be a great year full of activities and meeting new people!
Lauren Pyrch: Sports Chair
My name is Lauren Pyrch and I am a junior with a Management major and a Sport Management minor. I am a team captain on the Linfield Women's Varsity Soccer team and a member of the Alpha Phi Sorority. I am the LAB Sports Chair where I will be planning events to go to professional games in Portland and Seattle, like Blazer games. I am hoping to promote more Linfield Home Games with emphasizing the Linfield school spirit! I want to promote the games more around the Linfield campus so that students are aware of all the LAB Sport events. I wanted to be apart of LAB because I want to be more involved in the Linfield Community. The Sports Chair is a perfect fit for me because of my love for sports and my future goal of becoming an event planner. This chair is an excellent way to combine both of my interests! I am so excited to be the LAB Sports Chair!
