I attended Parking Appeals Committee this week. Please ask your respective constituencies how they would feel about adopting an altered form of the University of Dayton's current policy. They are talking about instituting a policy where you lose your right to appeal if you get more than three tickets for the same offense. The appeals system is constantly backed up and most of the offenders have 5 or more parking violations. Read more about Parking Appeals

The alumni are very interested on collaboration for our Homecoming 2012 initiatives. A carnival was suggested for the Homecoming weekend leading up to the football game and the dance during the 7th week. In organizing this, the organizations would each need to participate in a booth intended not for recruiting members, but for fun carnival games and a good time. Each would sponsor a game for example.

At the meeting on Tuesday, it was discused that not every college has submitted books for spring quarter. Although we are still a few weeks away there was a new law passed in Ohio requiring all book orders to be placed 2 weeks prior to open registration. It is thought that once we switch to semesters this will be more heavily enforced.
