Ms. Peppes further raised a request by the Inter-Greek Council (IGC) to have a bulletin board devoted to Greek-sponsored events.  The discussion examined the appropriateness of this request and why the Greek community is or is not more deserving of space than other groups.  The request was not forwarded for action. 

Mr. Stubbs gave the Student Services Committee report in that the Committee chair, Sarah Kluge, was not present.  Mr. Stubbs has been writing monthly articles about the Board for Sidetracks and would do a bulletin board promoting the SUBOG.

Mr. Mendoza, president of Central Activities Network (CAN), then gave his monthly report.  He highlighted the recent Fall Ball, which sold out (225 people); the recruitment meeting (CAN Opener), October 22, that was very successful; and that CAN was also a host school at the upcoming NACA regional conference.

In Ms. Crowe’s absence, Ms. Peppes gave the Mosaic Center Committee report.  There are eight members on the committee who meet weekly at noon on Wednesdays.  An open house is planned for October 22.  Launching of the “Mosaic Lens” photo contest will take place at that time.

Mr. Orloske was invited by Ms. Taggart to give a building update.  Mr. Orloske noted that building usage is up, bookstore sales are up, and the food court has shown a profit for the past two weeks.  These are all very positive indicators.  The punch list of things that need repair or completion within the building is being whittled down.  The “1% for art” piece will be installed before the end of November, outside of Breakers.  It was also reported that starting Monday, October 20, the operation of the Mexican Express location in the Devil’s Den will be extended to 7:30 p.m.  Also, the labeling of the art work throughout the building is happening.

Ms Taggart also mentioned a concern for the usage of lobby tables for vendors.  Are organizations getting the benefits they should in reference to these tables?  Also, the alarm system and student office access?
