Eboard Summer Documents

Hello! I hope you're enjoying your summer! At the moment the usual form of hosting files, flagship, and I don't quite see eye to eye, so for the summer I'll keep all minutes motions and documents in this dropbox folder for your viewing pleasure: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ahdgk4uh50zfvza/AAAMQ1qB0AENVkHrLKOKoPqxa?dl=0 If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me at any time at pu@rpi.edu.

All the Best, Nick…

Bookstore Discussion 5-15-2015

On Friday, May 15th, the Executive Board convened for a meeting with the orders of business being the confirmation of appointments of officers and committee chairs, and a report on the bookstore. All of the appointments were approved swiftly, and the discussion turned to the bookstore. 125th President of the Union Erin Amarello started the discussion by giving background on the work that has already been done.

I should have worked to make students more aware of the information regarding the process so that more students were aware of t…

This Week in the E-Board

Hi RPI, you're looking well. So first and foremost, E-Board Applications are still live, at least until tomorrow at midnight. All students are highly encouraged to apply, it's pretty cool. I'm sure you've heard my schpeil at least a dozen times, so I won't make you read it again. Tonight we heard three presentations. We'll be having one more meeting of the old E-Board next week due to the timing nightmare that was PU Week 2015. If you have questions/comments/concerns, comment below or shoot me an email at pu@rpi.edu. Stay frosty. Nick…
