President Sirek This is our last meeting. We have had a good first semester and done some awesome stuff in Senate. Thank you. Fill out the Senate Biographies during the meeting. Last week I went to SAFAC, HUPB and from our budget for money to serve pizza on Election day in the Upper Desk of Wallys. The pizza could be served from 4-6 PM for BSU students only. I reserved a BSU van for Election Day to shuttle the students to the polls to vote. After voting the van will then take them to Wallys for the pizza. I need students to sign up to drive the van. You must be employed by BSU to drive the van. Please sign up. Change drivers at the Beaux-Arts. Everyone take fliers and hand out in classes and announce to attend the debate. We are having ward maps printed so people know were to go to vote.
