North Dakota State University Student Government Sunday, October 16, 2005 Prairie Rose Room Minutes I. Call to Order Meeting was called to order at 6:30PM. II. Roll Call III. Approve Agenda Senator Eiler moved without objection to add “approval of two off-campus senators” to New business as line item A. No objection. IV. Guest Speakers- A. Pat Fredrickson- Bison Athletics Had great attendance at all the football games this year. Homecoming this week and hope that everyone shows up for those events. Money given to us is spent in three areas, travel, supplies, and fees. Travel that costs the most is football because of flying four separate times. Non-conference games cause us to fly to separate areas of the US. Last year, the move to Division 1, increased expenses in travel have occurred. Basketball and wrestling have a lot of home matches this year. Supplies such as equipment and uniforms are needed. Fees are official’s fees and guarantees. Official’s fees are twice the cost as division two official fees. Guarantees are used to get teams to come to NDSU; we give them and receive them. Appreciate all the help from the Student Government.

Float assembly is 7:00 on Thursday, will be meeting in the office. F. Tech – Joe Mathern Make sure to limit personal printing on student government printing. Its okay for a couple of pages, but don’t print out twenty or thirty page notes. Last Thursday the Technology Committee voted for an upgrade to Blackboard of 150,000 dollars, it will only cost 21,000 of this years money to pay for it. Learning management system will give online storage for every student, e commerce will match blackboard with bison card system and to put money onto your bison card account 24/7. This will allow you to add money whenever you want. E-portfolio option will also be given, it duplicates what we have with SOTS, where we can interface SOTS with Blackboard. It will also give us online library reserve. Also, it will integrate PRS. It isn’t finalized, ITS and Provost have given okays, but it still hasn’t been decided yet. Two weeks of seed classes will be given to see if we like it, we won’t owe anything until after that time period. The main thing with blackboard costs is based on the number of courses and users on the system. Don’t foresee it being much more than what we pay for it now. G. President- Kevin Teigen U-Senate was Monday, approved vertical writing curriculum. The amount of English stays the same, if you have over a 21 on your ACT, the English 110 will not be required.
