Posting Procedures. The Posting Policy for campus has proposed changes to re-title as a Posting Regulatory Procedure. The procedure is referenced in the University�s Facility Use Policy.
LCD Project. Jeff noted that the Dell computers arrived for the Digital Signage System. One computer had a bad video card and the other had a problem with the mother board. Waiting on parts to repair both systems. The audio monitor was specified at the incorrect size and had to be returned. The new audio monitor is on order. Jeff noted that Student Government Association, Blood Drive and Judicial Board have all expressed interest on getting advertisement space on the system. Laura noted that students from her class are interested in submitting information to be placed on the system also.
Jeff noted that he will be in during Spring Break. He noted that budgets are due to Student Government Association next Friday. Jeff noted that Mark Janssen is our new Structural Trades II staff and that he is in 6:00am – 2:30pm Monday – Friday. Mark will be able to take care of items an hour before the building opens if necessary. Repairs are being complete more quickly than when the University Center was dependent on only student employees for maintenance.
Athletics. Jeff noted Women�s Basketball coach, Marty Fletcher, has resigned. He did not coach the last game of the season. Women�s Softball team has opening game this weekend. The softball field is now called the black and gold field and has a new dugout with new benches. Sodexho will be handling the concessions at Four Diamonds.

Campus Recreation. Jeff noted that the preliminary drawings from the architects for the Recreation Center were submitted and changes were suggested. The committee is working on fee proposals for the center. Teresa Rudd noted that the Judicial Board is having a forum on the Recreation Center on March 31, 2005 in the University Center room 116, 12:00 – 2:00pm. Adelphia cable company will tape the discussion and it will be played on Adelphia. Teresa noted that the JBoard is looking at a green building proposal. Jeff noted that there is a cap on construction, so the committee must work within parameters for building the Recreation Center and the restrictions of bond debt might inhibit the ability to consider building green.

Office of Campus Activities. Jeff noted that March 31 will be the Battle of the Bands. Mary noted the online survey by OCA that went out to students.
