For the 2008-2009 school year, the SBA is starting a student mentoring program for incoming 1Ls. If you would like to get to know members of the incoming class and give them personalized advice on how to approach and navigate through the first year of law school, please consider becoming a student mentor. Responsibilities may include participation at orientation related events, as well as being available throughout the school year, especially during the beginning of fall semester. We need all the help we can get, so, if you are at all interested, contact Will Corrigan (firstname.lastname@example.org) before July 4. Thanks!

Club Programming Committee (CPC) applications are now being accepted for fall 2008 events. Over $35,000 in funds will be allocated to organizations for fall 2008 programs. CPC is a joint initiative coordinated by SGA and the Dean of Students Office. The CPC is composed primarily of students, so students will decide what sort of funding directives best support student life. SGA has made a major financial commitment to support CPC, and other departments have also provided funding (Dean of Students Office, Housing, and VP for Student Affairs).
During the spring semester CPC allocated funds to over 40 separate events. CPC monies are intended to afford recognized student organizations the opportunity to contribute to the quality of campus life by sponsoring special events and programs that may not be possible without this financial assistance. Proposal requests should demonstrate how funding the initiative would inspire a vibrant campus life and an engaged student body. Every request received will be reviewed by the CPC on a case-by-case basis.
The CPC guidelines and applications are available at the following web address:
Completed applications should be returned to the Dean of Students Office (SAC W301) by April 21t, 2008 at 3:00pm. If you have any questions about submitting an application, contact the Dean of Students Office @ 852-5787.
For those graduating students that took composite pictures, passport sized photos are now available in Dean Torbeck's office. Stop by now to grab yours!
