Student Services Committee
K. Hanley reported that this group ran a promotion table and conducted a survey on the Devil’s Den 10 PM Program.  There was a lot of participation in this by students, and she will report on the results of the survey at the next SUBOG Meeting.

Budget Committee
There is no report for Budget. However, there is a request for funding after the awards proposal during new business.

Old Business
The BOT Student Life Committee met recently, and K. Fournier presented her plan/request for additional Student Center space at the meeting.  The members of the BOT present for this presentation were impressed with the presentation and asked lots of questions.  Congratulations to Kelley Fournier on a job well done.

New Business
