MOBS members do several fundraisers, including a fundraiser each year called Pie Your TA. Students can pay to throw whipped cream pies at both TAs and professors. This usually happens near the end of either semester. In addition, MOBS performs community service activities.  Our biggest activity each year is usually Safe Trick or Treat, when thousands of local children and parents come through the Pacific campus trick or treating at various campus locations, including our biology building.
