Leaders anticipate College fundraiser

Liz Harter | Tuesday, April 11, 2006

The Saint Mary’s Board of Governance (BOG) went over upcoming events Monday night before closing the meeting to discuss the Observer comic strip Jockular.

Student body president Susan McIlduff briefly outlined the schedule for the final few weeks of the semester, reminding BOG members there is only one formal meeting left for the school year.

Residence hall association (RHA) president Amy Dardinger told commissioners that the dance marathon is coming up soon and added that RHA has planned some of the more recognizable events for next year already.

“Dance marathon is on the schedule for the 21 and 22 [of April] … and the [all- school] formal will be at Palais Royale again,” Dardinger said.

Money raised from the dance marathon will be given to the Indianapolis-based Riley Hospital for Children.

After all the executive officers reported, McIlduff closed the meeting to strictly commissioners and executives.

“BOG discussed Thursday’s issue of [Observer comic strip] Jockular,” McIlduff said in a statement after the meeting.

When asked what was talked about in the closed session, she would not release any more details.
