  • Pizza Hut opened Feb. 10.
  • Fish will be available on Fridays during Lent in Spellmann.

The other guest for the meeting was Associate Provost Dr. Mark Valenzuela who provided students with a link to a survey regarding the board of trustees. 

“If you complete the survey before Monday, we will have a drawing for a $25 Amazon gift card that we will get back to you and we will proudly present to you but this will be helpful especially as we think about what is the spring interaction for these students with the board of trustees,” Valenzuela said.
