but Coach Carl Hatchell said the game

New group programs Meredith
by Arinn Dixon
There is a relatively new organiza
tion on the Meredith campus. Last year
the presidents of the Meredith Recre
ational Association, the Meredith Enter
tainment Association, the Association of
Black Awareness, and other program
ming groups sat on the executive board
of the Student Government Association
(SGA). This year things changed a bit.
Instead of being a part of SGA, the presi
dents formed the Programming Board.
Advised by Cheryl Jenkins, the Pro
gramming Board tries to work toward
quality programming at Meredith. “The
board gives the leaders of the organiza
tions on campus a chance to get to
gether and collaborate on ideas,” Chair
person Catherine Davis explained. “We
look for ways to bring the whole campus
together in such a way that will benefit
the student body.”
The board certainly does its share of
woric. At the meetings each organization
gives a report on how its particular pro
grams are working. If one group is hav
ing problems, the others will offer
opinions and advice for improvement
based on their own experiences. The
leaders share their schedules of up
coming events which keep programs
of different groups from overiapping.
One of the main goals of the new
Programming Board is to plan events
that will encourage students to stay on
campus.” The big thing we are work
ing on now has to do with the Open
Houses for male visitation . We are
trying to plan programs that will make
students want to bring their guy friends
The big news now is that the
Programming Board is holding elec
tions for members during the campus
wide elections which kick -off Febru
ary 13 and continue on through the
first week in March. To run for a posi
tion on the board, the candidate must
be a rising junior or knior and must
have a grade point average of 2.25.
