CSA blog is back in action! We apologize for the lack of posts this year, but
we promise there will be frequent posts for now on :)
Recently, the CSA Executive Board has been working extremely
hard on several different tasks. Last week we had Spring Convocation- which
went extremely well! As Brittany Novak said last week, Convocation was a bit
short and sweet, but that is how we like things here at UMC, right? Amber
Evans-Daily spoke at last week's Convocation; touching on some important issues
here on campus regarding retention- How can you help UMC to retain more
students? Join a retention committee!! Ask Amber Evans-Daily or anyone from the
CSA Executive board for more information in regards to joining a retention
committee- we need your help students!
Speaking of committees, the Student fees committee has decided to lower the student services fee for all full time students to $195.50 for the 2010-2011 academic year. This year we have been paying over $200 in student fees each semester, so next fall and spring we will be saving some green! On another note, members of the executive board- especially Greg Summers- has been working diligently on submitting recommendations for the Campus Master Plan. This "Master Plan" is basically UMC's outline of goals for development of new buildings and infrastructure. Currently, some recommendations include expansion and new construction projects of a wellness center/admissions center, academic sites, UTOC, athletic facilities, a new residence hall, and expansion of parking. Students and faculty/staff have until March 15th to submit any recommendations and comments in regards to the Campus Master Plan.
As you know, the UMC campus is participating in Recyclemania. This is still going on, so remember to recycle everything that you can!
This week, we will be taking nominations for faculty/staff awards. This includes 4 awards which are given out at the Student Awards Ceremony on Thursday, April 22. The 4 awards are: Outstanding Educator, Most supportive of students, most creative use of technology, and outstanding service to students. We will have nomination ballots located in Centennial front desk, and the Student center information desk from March 8-March 12, so remember to nominate a faculty/staff member!!!!
