A video was shot at the event and after being edited it will serve as a campus-wide PSA for the clothing drive that will benefit Early Bread Ministries. Types of clothing needed are primarily men’s winter clothing, shoes, socks, gloves, hats, etc. Drop off locations TBA.
Shane Oakley appeared on their behalf. We discussed the benefits of have different faculty members attend the meetings each month . Also, we discussed the drop/add policy and its pros and cons. The research gathered by the SGA will be used to support the Faculty Associations efforts in bringing back such a policy.
Hosted by Dr. Robert Sutton on Friday, October 12, 2012 from 10am-12noon in S 002.
This event is being co-sponsored by SGA and 3MI. Date and time TBA. The purpose of the event is to provide students with a greater understanding of good study habits. There will be music, games, and fun for all. Speakers include: Dr. Graham from NC A&T, Juan Cuevara from the Math Club, David Wilson from the Student Ambassadors, and music will be provided by Coast 97.3.
Quite a success. Much research was gathered about the drop/add issue, we gained quite a few senate applications, and there was a good response to voter registration. All in all it was great time had by all.
Gary met with Dan Wilcox, our new Assistant Director of Campus Safety. He has a wealth of knowledge in the field of law enforcement. CFCC hopes to have its own Campus Police in the near future.

The College has employed Kimley-Horn and Associates, Inc. out of Raleigh, NC to conduct a study regarding the future of parking for CFCC students, faculty and staff. With the study they plan to assess the current system , project future parking demands, align the parking resources with the demands, and provide improved user satisfaction.
