Have you wondered about what really happens in Room 1411? Check back every Friday for a behind-the-scenes look at the Office of Student Life!
Here are the highlights for the week of October 26…
Monday, October 26: I met with the president of Animal Awareness Group and talked about bringing puppies to campus in December for a finals relaxer.
Tuesday, October 27: We had our sixth Student Senate meeting. If you’re not involved yet, join us every Tuesday from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. in Room 1000. All students are welcome! We are starting at the very beginning and we need all students to help us determine what’s most important. We are researching other college and university student governments and drawing out the things we like best and would work at MU.
Homecoming is coming… November 14… look for flyers around campus. Women’s Basketball game at 1:00 p.m., Men’s Basketball game at 3:00 p.m., and formal dance at 8:30 p.m. Tickets for the dance will be on sale next week!
Wednesday, October 28: I met with faculty and staff as part of the Title IX Advisory Committee. I’m looking for student input on how to best communicate our policies with students – if you have thoughts, please email me.
Friday, October 23: The Student Life Assistants and I had a staff meeting to celebrate all that we’ve accomplished this semester. We also made some plans for the rest of the semester. Since it’s the day before Halloween, we had lots of treats and enjoyed spending time together.
Tonight, the Madonna Miles bus leaves campus at 6:30 p.m. for the Fisher Theater. Our group will be seeing Dirty Dancing. Also, I’ll be taking a group of students to U of M-Dearborn to visit their Student Government meeting. We’ll be doing research for the formation of our Student Senate.
Weekend Preview: Visit Day tomorrow – we’ll be welcoming prospective students and their families to campus. I’ll be presenting about all that students can get involved in if they choose to study at MU.
Have a spooky & safe Halloween!
Thanks for reading… I’ll be back next Friday with more updates!
