Now Accepting Applications For 1990
By Sherry A. Waters
The Freshman Class Committee
(FCC), one of the various committees
of the Black Student Movement (BSM),
serves to generate a freshman voice to
BSM Vice-President Toija Riggins
will hold the responsibility of organiz
ing the freshman committee this year.
Riggins said the committees of the past
have not shown enough direction.
“If they (freshmen) have a mission,
I feel that the FCC would prove more
successful.” Riggins said.
Riggins also said she expects the
FCC to complete at least three projects
“I want to make sure that the FCC
has something to show for themselves
at the end of the year.” Riggins said.
Several projects planned for the fall
include helping with the BSM voter
registration, and holding a raffle to
raise money for the BSM. Riggins said
the FCC for the 1989-1990 academic
year was successful in sponsoring a
raffle, which is why it is included in
the FCC agenda this year.
Another idea planned for the FCC
this year is a “aam-a-thon,” which will
serve as an incentive for getting
freshmen to study for their final exams
Riggins said. The goal is to get people
to pledge a desired amount of money
for a period of study time.
Riggins also said another “cram-a-
thon” as well as activities for Black
History Month will be held in the

be scheduled for the week of Sept. 19.
People applying to serve on the
FCC will be evaluated according to
their high school involvement, their
willingness to serve, and their
