machine in the library?
liaison will check up on this
Audrey (Soph.)- uninvited guest suggestion…
at smaller, regular parties?
do wristbands at martin, because they aren’t official events/logistically
problematic (too many entrances/etc)
can ask people to leave
ask people to leave
Kate (Huntington)-Parking at Huntington
enough space, can we not ticket people who park by the space by the garden
(Tire marks on the grass upsets facilities/P-Safe)?
with temporary disabilities can contact P-Safe about getting temporary handicap
Graham (Fresh.)-The new walkways in front of
the SLTC are getting pretty muddy can we get a new layer of pecans?

Megan (Jr.)- What’s going on with the
working on it, now that we have a freshman Senator; their committee is fully
formed and can meet. They are working on putting together proposal forms that
will soon be on the website
Hunter (Front/Mills)- Why is the left door
downstairs always locked? …it’s aesthetically displeasing and inefficient.
Carney-Hall: It has to do with the magnetic reader itself, the mechanism for a
double door function costs an additional $5,000, they could only afford one
Courtney (Media)- Broken Glass in Art
Complex parking lot
be mindful of cars/tires and not throw glass in that area.
IV. Departmental Liaison Reports
V. Committee Reports
Financial Committee with Clay Christian
The request is for Additional funding for
food for the Galloway Hoedown on Saturday. The original caterers increased
their price quote from last year, Galloway Hall Council sought a cheaper
caterer/food options and their new and they need more money to cover the
Recommended: $161.22 (fund in full)
Motion to pass FinCom’s recommendation, no
objections or abstentions.
The request is for funding for catering by
Culinary Club for food for The Profile’s
launch party. The Profile is changing
things up this year and is trying to attract a larger audience; their previous
launch parties have been similar and successful.
Recommended: $310 (fund in full)
Motion: Motion to pass FinCom’s recommendation; passed,
no objections or abstentions
The request is for funding to send 8 members
to the Quidditch World Cup in NYC in
November. The proposal asks for funding for hotel and gas fees. The proposal
exceeds the $80/room/night hotel cap that FinCom (and many Hendrix
institutions- ie Odyssey) abides by. This request also only impacts 8 students.
Overall this proposal reflects a lack of planning, and FinCom also feels that
it doesn’t impact a large enough part of the Hendrix community to justify
awarding such a large sum of funds. FinCom had discussed other fundraising
options during the spring allocation process and is willing to continue this
conversation. Senate is willing to support Quidditch, but feels this proposal
is for too much.
Motion: Motion to pass FinCom’s recommendation;
passed, no objections, one abstention (Anvesh-Village)
Requested: $2487.78 (see attached)
The request is for funding to bring DJ
D.VELOPED to Ghost Roast. Recently, Martin has been trying to bring more
established artists to campus events. This additional funding covers typical DJ
costs (ie travel, food, lodging, etc). DJ D.VELOPED came to Toga last year and
was well received by students, and has great interest in performing. (Local
DJ’s had been sought out, but Martin has encountered problems with them, and
bringing in a larger/familiar act has proved a better investment/guaranteed
Recommended: $2487.78 (fund in full)
Motion: Motion passed, no objections or
NOTE TO ANY ORGANIZATION APPLYING FOR
FUNDING, contacting Clay PRIOR to sending in your proposal with questions/for
advice is in your favor, it
will help FinCom (and likely positively effect the outcome of FinCom’s
Committee on Everything Awesome with Dean Jim Wiltgen and Dr. Karla Carney-Hall
security/Uninvited guests (ie The Rando Situation)
Yesterday there were two separate incidents
of theft; a backpack and a laptop were stolen.
EYE ON YOUR VALUABLES/LOCK EVERYTHING
backpack was stolen from the Sun Porch, and the theft was caught on videotape
(instituted last year following several thefts). The videotape is proving
helpful in the process, however the thief has yet to be identified.
like a Hendrix student, we don’t think it is one.
last weekend’s Werewolf man break in….
Can we get new locks on the Parlor doors?
Carney-Hall, Facilities will be double-checking the locks!
Everyone should have P-Safe’s number in your
Front Street/other gatherings
have a smaller party/event/gathering with 40ish or more people, you can’t
expect not to draw people, sometimes uninvited guests
know that you always have the right to ask
people to leave (tactfully/reasonably) and if you feel uncomfortable doing so,
or if they uninvited guests are not responsive, call P-Safe or the RA’s to ask
a wristband event with perimeter checks
of the situation/brought it up this weekend
