Recruitment: First, tis the season to rush potentials. First event is this Thursday, in the Will Rogers Room in the Union.
Reserved from 7PM-10PM, but we need to get early to set up. Pizza arrives at 7:30. Br. Grady has offered to take charge
with setting up this event. The room has its own sound system. I need applicants for my Rush committee. Write your name
and I will get with you. Last semester, attendance mandatory was 75%. This semester, there are 8 events, 5 need to be chalked
and flyered. Those are mandatory. You are now required to sit in with 2 different groups on campus. This will help meet others
in Triangle-respected majors. There are 17 total events. 75% is still required. Br. Garcia will print off list of different
organizations. Rush schedules will be on dining room table. Grab a bunch and hand them out. There are 398 that need to be passed
out. If you think someone is committed to pledge, there is a nicer and more formal schedule to hand out. EE’s should be at

Something should be written so that Social chair cannot also be risk management. Winter Ball tickets are on SALE NOW! – Miles

Derick – Buening announced a career fair. I will push to have this mandatory. His mom will give a short seminar on career fairs,
interviews, resumes, etc... That Saturday, we will have alumni here doing interviews. Still working out the scholarship. I
pushed during the BOD meeting that there should be a scholarship. We are looking at structuring it like last semester without
the 1 week notice. Awarded on Founders Day. Prompt will be out a month before, and two weeks before founders day is due date.
Looking at having multiple scholarships. Quality of submission problems on BOD’s side. I am highly against that.
