Fiscal Affairs
The design professional for the Campus Security/Alarm System project has determined that there are not enough dollars to include all proposed buildings in the project.  The Cabinet agreed that all residence halls should remain in the project.  Thus, the Chapel will be removed from the project.

Issues pertaining to the condition of the floor in the kitchen area of the SUB have made it necessary to reevaluate the location of the TV studio.  Parties involved have been asked to discuss the possibility of locating the TV Studio in the area that used to serve as the faculty lounge.  The Art studio would then be located in the space currently designated for the TV studio.
