President's Report
- The Big Event is coming up.

- I have a list of campus awards you can apply for. Outstanding freshman/sophomore/junior's, big man/women on campus, etc., are up to be had. I've heard they're not tough to get, if you actually apply for them. Go to room 253 in the Union to apply, or talk to me for an application.
- I called the Campus Fundraiser people. They only do blocks between 4 and 8 PM in the evening, and go from room to room in the dorms to seek applications. Do we still want to do this?
