Event deemed a success

Liz Harter | Tuesday, October 31, 2006

In lieu of commissioner reports, a “Senior Dad’s Weekend” recap by Class of 2007 president Kat Kindt highlighted Monday’s Board of Governance (BOG) meeting.

Kindt did not know the final count of fathers who attended, but called the weekend “very successful.”

The front row seats at the 2007 graduation ceremony were auctioned off for $2,500 Friday night, she said. The money will benefit the senior class’ fundraising efforts.

Board members also participated in the residence hall trick-or-treating event Sunday evening.

There was a large turnout of ghouls and goblins accompanied by Saint Mary’s faculty and staff in the halls, Residence Hall Association president Amy Dardinger said.

“I can’t believe the amount of people who showed up,” she said.

She also said she ran out of candy for the trick-or-treaters in LeMans Hall.

Commissioner reports did not occur this week because the full board was not present at the meeting. Student body president Susan McIlduff said the reports would be presented next week.
