3. Reading of Minutes
The minutes were read and were unanimously approved by the senate.
4. Committee Reports
A. Student Issues: There are four machines that take the new bills. They are in North, Belk, Pine Halls and the library. The only one that may or may not accept new bills is the machine in the University Center. To save money, they still have a lot of ID cards left to use that work on this machine. When they are given out (approx. 1 or 2 years) then they will look into buying a new machine. Until then, a sign will be placed on the machine saying, “Old bills can be exchanged for new ones at the information booth.”
Toilet seat liners will cost a lot of money to place in all the buildings, and if they were to get them in future years, the cost would be passed on to the students. Dr. Jones is supposed to check on the cost and let me know how much of a charge would be passed on to the students.
For the new apartments, those who go through the lottery will get first priority over those who do not. The proposed price is between $3,300 - $3,500 for a 9 month lease as compared to the University Courtyard Apartments at $4,680 for 4Br./2Bath and $5,820 for 2Br/2Bath for a 12 month contract and Pine Hall (2003) at $2,610 (not including meal plan). They are asking the contractor to have at least 216 beds ready by August 15. (They feel this should be plenty to house everyone.) If the project is not completed, UNC-P will house students in a motel in Lumberton and provide a shuttle service to and from school until the project is finished.
B. Food Committee: Due to the absence of the chair, there was no report
C. Entertainment: Open Mic Night was held on Tuesday, March 10th. CAB put a twist on things and made Open Mic Apollo Style. 8 Mile is playing tonight in Moore Hall at 8 pm and on Saturday at the same time and place.

We will depart from the UC at 5 am and return at 4pm. The ropes course is open for senators and campaign for compassion this Saturday from 9-5.
