CSA Update- Week of March 28th- April 1st

This is Nana Boaten, CSA Senator for International Relations. The 2010-2011 academic year is gradually coming to an end at the University of Minnesota, Crookston and the tenure of executive board members on the Crookston Student Association is also coming to an end.  The time has come for a new dynamic breed of students to take up the mantle of leadership to help run and steer the affairs of the Crookston Student Council.  Elections are just around the corner and the opening and closing of applications for student government was just completed between the 21st and 27th of March 2011.  The application deadline was March 27th, 2011 and it is hoped that, a lot of students would be encouraged to take up leadership positions on the Student Council for the next academic year. Campaigning for elections are all this week- and Elections will be taking place Monday- April 4th and Tuesday- April 5th from 10AM-2PM in the Student Center each day, so come out and vote! Also, on Monday- April 4th at the elections table, there will be voting to adopt the new CSA Constitution- this takes a full student body vote, so please vote for that as well.

Also, the University of Minnesota, Crookston Campus Assembly event will be held on March 31, 2011 at Bede Ballroom.  This is an opportunity to learn from the Chancellor the important strides that are being made to uplift and enhance the academic experience at the university and also an opportunity for various committees to present their activities and programs that they have been working on over the past weeks.  We encourage the high attendance rate from students to come and share their thoughts and ideas as to how to make the university a better place for everybody.

CSA Update- Week of February 28th - March 4th

This is Anna, Vice President- and I've been working on the awards committee lately.  CSA is responsible for 4 faculty/staff awards: Most Creative Use of Technology for faculty, Outstanding Educator for faculty, Most Supportive of Students for faculty, and Outstanding Service to Students for staff.  Each of these awards are given out on April 14th during UMC Awards Night and they are a big honor for the faculty or staff to receive.  Last week CSA had a table in the International Lounge and boxing at the Info Desk and Centennial for students to nominate the faculty and staff that they felt were the most deserving.  The nominations have been tallied and those who received the most nominations were put into the ballot to be voted on this week.  I encourage everyone to come to the International Lounge from 10-2 on Monday March 7th and Tuesday March 8th to vote for the faculty/staff awards.  

Faculty/Staff Awards Nomination

Students, Come and Nominate Faculty/Staff for four Awards: Most Creative Use of Technology (Faculty), Outstanding Educator (Faculty), Most Supportive of Students (Faculty), and Outstanding Service to Students (Staff).

CSA Update- Week of February 14th - February 18th

Hello all! This is Angie Bartholomew, S.P.A.C.E. Chair. Currently, CSA is focusing on getting students involved in "Because Letters"--writing notes to their legislators stating why UMC is so important to them and their education. If you are interested in writing a letter, stop by the CSA Office in the Leadership Room (2nd floor of the Student Center). Support the U Day is coming up, next Tuesday, February 22nd. Support the U day involves a day long trip down to the Capital building in St. Paul where a rally is held and meetings with Minnesota legislators. If you are interested in attending Support the U Day, contact Thomas Haarstick or Shawn Friedland. As for upcoming SPACE events, we have a busy week next week! On Monday, February 21st, we have Austin Kyle performing in the Northern Lights Lounge from 11:30am-1:00pm so make sure to stop out and see him! On Wednesday, February 23rd, we have Mr. UMC going on, beginning at 7pm in Kiehle Auditorium. Mr. UMC is a male pageant-like competition, and this year we have seven contestants competing. The theme this year is Axe Men: Men In Flannel. It should be a great show, so make sure you attend!! The following Wednesday, March 2nd , Chapter 6 will be on campus. They are an all male a cappella  group, that have an amazing sound and are also quite humorous on stage. They will be performing at 7pm in Kiehle on March 2nd, come by and check them out!


I would also like to let everyone know about the Honor program being put on by BSA to celebrate Black History Month. It is on Monday, February 28th from 6pm-8pm in Kiehle Auditorium and it is a program dedicated to honoring the African-American men and women who have fought and served in the United States military. Make sure to participate in this event and show your support by wearing a yellow ribbon.


Enjoy the weekend and I hope to see you out at the several upcoming events around campus!!
