x.            Guest Speakers

i.      Brendan Larson – Children’s Center- For a project management class they are working on a fundraiser to raise money for support for Children’s program. They would like to put boxes in Res Halls, collecting candy wrappers, and possibly old cell phones. The items would be sent to terrarecycle.com which will in turn issue a refund for the products sent in. The plan is to collect stuff from boxes once a week, unless more is needed. Boxes will be near the front desk in each hall. All money will go to the children’s center because they need a lot of help with fundraising.  Point of Information- This was done last year for SAGE, something like this has been approved by RHA in past years.  .  Greg Loreti moved to end discussion, seconded by Jenny Restock. Consent called by Megan Reddin, discussion closed. This will be brought back to LITs and will be voted on at the next meeting

ii.      Emily Lorenz – French Dip- Emily will present at next meeting due to the lack of technology.

i.      Joe Jent – Boo-Lated Halloween Bash! Representing the West side campuses. West side will be presenting the second annual haunted house. This is a program that is put on mostly by RAs. This year they have a haunted courtyard, haunted hallway, and two rooms, one of which will be a general spooks room, another will be a demented circus theme. This event is Thursday November 3rd from 7-10pm.  Tomorrow night at 6:30in Starin Hall there will be a meeting, if anyone wants to help they can, but the acting will be done only by RA’s.  . Last year’s numbers were around 220 people.  Last year RHA sponsored this event they gave $250.00, and used about $220. Requesting $300.00 from RHA for food and different props. The request is for a larger monetary value because the presentation will be bigger than last year. The money will be used to buy more sustainable items because West side would like this to happen every year.
