President's Report
- I got a flyer for OU's class ring. In order to take part in the ring ceremony, you must order by September 14th. If anyone is interested in this, see me. I have the order form.

- I met with Dr. Grady last week. He's going to be our chapter advisor again. He's back this semester. He wanted me to tell you: 1) if you have anything for him, get it to him early. 2) if you want to talk to him, use email or make an appointment.
