Student Life and Technology Center

I. Call to Order


II. Special Business


III. Announcements and Constituent Concerns

·      Under pass is closed, but why? Surfacing the whole and floor.

·      Village C – doors to the elevator unlocked during the day – that could be a security issue. BUT JUST KEEP AN EYE OUT! And be careful.

·      Sword Club Assassins week – so the Sword Club officers came to discuss the issues that the assassins week has brought to the campus. The Sword Club officers apologized and are trying to cap the situation. If you see anyone fighting within the residence halls, academic buildings, or within any of the others, stop them. This is a direct “violation” of their rules within sword club.

·      Service parking spots – you can’t really see them – can we get it re-painted? Couple in the couch circle that you can’t see.
