Presented gender neutral housing- Explained the proposal and walked us through it. There will not be a discussion this week, just take information back to LITs and next week we will discuss this.

Gender blind/neutral housing-This will be opened up in Starin Hall, not sure what floor/s yet. To be eligible for this, you must be eligible to live in Starin Hall. There may be additional applications to be completed. The proposal is fully comprehensive; there is plenty of additional information in here. Keep in mind, no one would live in gender neutral housing unless you request it and the request is mutual. Priority will be given to those who have a need for it instead of a want for it.

viii.            Committee Report(s)

i.      Residence Life Room Assignments =-will be meeting on Friday. All freshman complexes might not be the best idea, but an all-freshman dorm could work well.

ii.      Dining Services Committee- Chris Martin sits on the committee, last Friday had a meeting, the mission of dining services isn’t just to provide food, but wants to get people involved and be one step above all other food service venders. Drumlin will become an all you can eat place in the upstairs. The goal is not to make this the same as Esker, but setting up different stations, pizza station, kitchen station, sandwich shop, etc. They are going to try to have more vegan and vegetarian options. The committee wants to get a floor plan that will seat up to 400 people. The downstairs will have the grocery section and maybe a sub shop similar to P Street. Remodeling should be done by spring semester of 2013. Committee wants our input on what to do about food for that side of campus. Please bring this back to LITs, and come back with ideas at the next meeting.

These can be written for anything and everything, just keep it appropriate. It is also possible to submit a program. Write an OTM of at least 250 words, then submit it online. OTMs are due at 11:59pm on the 5th of the next month. There are prizes for writing these!!

xi.            Funds Requests: Shirley-

The E board would like to provide a gift for Shirley on belaf of RHA, a large card in a picture frame for her, in addition to a certificate and some gift cards. Shirley is the program assistant for the office of Residence Life. She has been here since the first day that RHA opened on campus, and she has done so much for RHA. The E- board is requesting 100.00-$250.00 for her gifts. (As this amount is under $700.00 and is a time sensitive issue, we will vote on it tonight.)

Sheldon Bean moved to end discussion, seconded by Megan Reddin. Consent called by Cole Wohler. Dan entertained a motion to vote.  Kelley Agnew moved to give the E board $100-$250.00 for a gift for Shirley, seconded by Mariah Mohammadian. 27-0-7.Motion passes.

xii.            Old Business

i.      Meeting Location (UC) – The layout of the room is different this week, if we can continue to stay in 259 we will have the same layout. General consensus is that the assembly doesn’t like not being able to see everyone. If we move to the ballroom, things will be quite similar to the old layout in this room.

ii.      Hall Meeting Location/Information- We have a hall interested in hosting us next week, it has not been finalized yet, but when Bekah emails out a reminder, you will know what hall we are in. In November and December we will host meetings in two different complexes. First meeting will be October 19, and the following all hall meeting will be November 16. The exact location of this has yet to be determined.
