He said he would discuss it further with patrolling officers and contact her later the following week. 

The committee is researching the possibility of adding an information board on the first floor of the student center. This board would be devoted to promoting services that are available to the students but not very advertised.

The committee met at three o'clock in the SGA chambers. We discussed how the week had gone with contacting and gathering information. 

Senator Lukacs still has not heard back and will try calling this week instead of email. 

Larry Lawarence emailed Senator Natalie Brown back and gave her contact information for Ken Schulte. Natalie will be contacting Ken Schulte and setting up a meeting. 

Senator Emilie Shatto was emailed by Larry Lawarence about outdoor seating. He liked the idea of adding seating and umbrellas to tables that are focused in the sun. His only hold back from going ahead with seating improvements is funding. He is looking for a partnership possibility with SGA. 

Senator Ingram is following up with the sign updates and will be attending the next ad-hoc meeting lead by Diane Newton. 

Senators Ingram and Lukacs met with Anthony Philipo this week. He agreed that a sand volleyball court was a good idea and took the senators around to possible locations. He said cost would not be a problem as long as SGA could possibly contribute. His only reserve about the idea is how many students would utilize the court and actually want the money spent on the court and not other areas. He suggested surveying the students before going further with the idea. 

Senator Brown will be setting up a meeting with Chris Morris, the President of Non-Traditional Student Services, this week to talk about how the student service is functioning.

Shun plans on contacting her and seeing if he can join the committee. 

Senators Michael and Shun brought their research for the volleyball court to the committee. They plan on contacting Anthony Philipo and setting up a meeting with him about the possibility of a court. 

The Non-traditional student services were found to be under-equipped for a functional program to help the students they need to aide. The committee is going to perform more research and set up meetings with the President of Non-Traditional Student Services.
