Present: S. Collier (Chair), F. Mendoza, D. Orloske, L. Papacostas, S. Rich, P. Rosa, D. Ross, R. Schneeweiss  

Guest:   G. Campos, M. Palermo, A. Thomas

Ms. Collier called the meeting to order at 5:12 p.m.  She asked Mr. Orloske to give the Renovation Update.  He reported that a significant quantity of asbestos needs to be removed and this will push the construction schedule back two months.  The steel framing on new parts of the building has commenced.  A field trip to the Student Center will take place in warmer weather before the end of the semester.  

Mr. Schneeweiss then gave the Program Council (PC) report in the absence of PC president, Tara Banks.  The PC has had a daylong retreat.  It is working with the Inter-Residence Council (IRC) on Spring Week.  Further, the PC would like the Student Government Association (SGA) to partner in on this project, also.  

A general meeting of the PC was held on February 12.  The PC Spotlite Committee’s Open Mic nights continue to be successful.  They are working with Chartwells concerning issues in the set-up of Grand Central Café.  

The Winter Week program featured the One-Ton Sundae, James Mapes, and Starflix (make your own video).  

Fernando Mendoza gave the Mosaic Center Committee report.  He outlined the Mosaic Series and highlighted the recent appearance of Jane Elliott on February 13.  There were over 350 present for Ms. Elliott’s program, “You Were Not Born a Bigot.”

  There was no Student Services Committee report.

  There was no Budget Committee report.

Under Open Floor, the SUBOG meeting time was discussed.  Mr. Orloske suggested that the time be announced early in the summer and that when one accepts a seat on the Board, they have set their schedules, accordingly, to attend all SUBOG meetings.  

There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 5:35 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,  

Robert Schneeweiss
Executive Secretary SUBOG
