Purchase of 'RC Rock' considered

Senators from the Richmond College Student Government Association is exploring whether to purchase a Richmond College rock.

During the Wednesday night's RCSGA meeting, senators said students would be able to paint the rock advertising various on-campus events. They also expressed hopeit would create a more unified, spirited Richmond College community.

Katie Malczewski, a representative for Operation Christmas Child, requested funding. For the past two years, the Christian Student Fellowship has raised money for the project, which puts together boxes of goodies to be sent to children overseas.

It costs about $10 to fill each box with items including pens, pencils, markers and games, but an additional $7 is needed to send each box to its final destination. CSF are looking for RCSGA backing to help fund the shipping costs.

Budget overview sheets discussed during the meeting outlined the costs of Homecoming and the amount of money RCSGA gave to various organizations this semester. It also showed remaining funds for RCSGA to offer.

Progress is being made with the RCSGA Web site, which will keep students more informed and allow funding requests to be made more easily and with less confusion. The goal is to have this finished as soon as possible.

Jerry Giordano submitted a list of nine Richmond College students who applied for positions in the class of 2011 cabinet he found most suitable.

Senators also noted Oct. 29 was the 10th anniversary celebration of the Whitehurst building.

RCSGA is also working to get a hand sanitizer dispenser in the Pier.
