  • Ellie with Raney repairs?
    • Girl in Raney was mad about building new dorms instead of fixing new ones; claimed there were holes in Raney.  She has probably talked to her RA.
    • Will’s response was that we need the new dorms in order to house people.
  • Jayce with VAC and Juice
    • Starting up again, probably with an event once a week?  Katie Pratt and Cait Conn are bringing it back and would like to have a Senate Representative.
