           e.) Stapler (with staples, no less!) and hole punch in computer lab, securely affixed to

       10.) Gretchen, VP BOP
           a.) Viennese Ball will be Feb. 16

C.) Smoking ban issues
    1.) The posters which were put up showing the designated smoking areas for each center
        talk about said areas as part of a “temporary” phase in a transition to a smoke-free
        campus; no one really knows what “temporary” means. There is still no enforcement
        for this policy.
    2.) Ray: RAs are repetitively and diligently asking violators to move to the designated
        areas, with mixed success
D.) NRHH Retreat
    1.) One-day leadership retreat at Bradford Woods on January 26. Will be $10/person;
        Collins can foot the bill; talk to Ray if you’re interested.
