Commons Union Board (CUB) Stamp
Since it opened in January 1966 the building now known as the Thomas Commons was the center of student life. It gave students one place to eat, check their mail, socialize, and meet with their organizations. It also provided a location for meetings and entertainments, and, of course, was—and is—home to the Orange Carpet, a kind of living room for students. The Commons Union Board was a student organization that helped book and facilitate events in the building.
