Chairman Campbell called the meeting to order at 5:07 p.m. In his remarks, he noted that he was creating a file for organization requests for office space in the renovated Student Center. The SUBOG of the year 2000-2001 will have to deal with such assignments. The request was from the Graduate Student Association (GSA).

Then Ms. Gargamelli was called on to give the Budget Committee report. She indicated that the Committee did not meet.

Ms. Moore gave the House Committee report. As a result of the Committee meeting, a letter will be sent to all student organizations inviting them to a forum on the current admission policy. The House Committee will report back to the Board. Furthermore, there was a conversation on the naming of rooms in the new Student Center.

Mr. Zytka reported on behalf of the Student Services Committee. There was no official Committee meeting but he attended a commuter concerns meeting. There were concerns for commuters and their needs during the time the Student Center will be closed for renovations.

Ms. Clark gave the Program Council report on behalf of the Program Council. Of particular interest were the October and November (to date) program statistics (number of events/attendance):

October 26 events/4159 in attendance

November 8 events/1147 in attendance

These numbers appear to be a genuine increase over last year. Film attendance is up. This is very encouraging. The international coffeehouse continues with success as a program as well as in attendance

MOTION (L.Gargamelli/E. Carte) To ratify Alex Cortes as Cinema Central Coordinator of the Program Council for 1998-99:

Motion passed (14 approved, 0 against, 0 abstained) (SUBOG 98-22)


Ms. Gargamelli, Ms. Moore, Ms. Calabrese, Ms. Portilla, Mr. Hayes, and Mr. Schneeweiss will serve on the AdHoc Brick Committee.

Mr. Campbell then asked the Board to break up into their committees and to discuss the three goals that the SUBOG endorsed last month. The goals and ideas that were generated follow:

Then each goal was adopted by a particular Committee.


Student Services Committee Goal: To engage in activities that cause a greater sense of community and pride on campus.

Suggested methods of accomplishing goal:


Budget Committee Goal: To examine campus organizations’ use of off-campus food vendors.

Suggested methods of accomplishing goal:

Under general comments, it was decided to invite a club representative and a University official to the next meeting. The Black Student Union and Mr. Chuck Wallach (Bursar) and Mr. Louis Guillette of Chartwells were suggested.

The next meeting will be Thursday, December 10, 1998, at 5:00 p.m. in the Student Center Annex/Reception Room.

There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 6:34 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,
