The Residential College Association convened Monday in the Barkley Room on the third floor of the Curris Center.

Meetings will be held in this location unless members are notified previously of a special event.

Stand Up for Animals is a food drive for the Murray Animal Shelter being held on April 22 from 7-10 p.m. in the Curris Center Stables. An unnamed, but popular, Chicago comedian will headline the event, while residential colleges are encouraged to send worthy stand-up comedy acts to open the show. Bring $2 or a can of food, as the event could be a Spirit Flag event. More details to come.

Paula Amols, new dining services director, discussed the Dining Committee, asking anyone interested in offering feedback for improvements to join her in Hart College at 5 p.m. on Tuesday.

“Winslow has a new look,” she said. “We are willing to make improvements.”

Student Government Association (SGA) is organizing students to attend the Higher Education Rally in Frankfort, Ky., on Feb. 7. Transportation will depart from the Curris Center at 5 a.m., while lunch and a t-shirt with the words “Peace, Love and Education” will be provided for anyone attending.

Athletic Director Allen Ward is urging all students to attend not only Men’s basketball games, but Women’s basketball games as well. The Lady Racer matchup against Tennessee State on Feb. 6 at 7 p.m. in the CFSB Center has the potential to be a Spirit Flag event based on overall student attendance.

If 20 students per dorm endorse a petition asking for them to be made, t-shirts emblazoned with the words “Flush the Peay” will be created and sold in preparations for the Feb. 11 Men’s basketball game against Austin Peay. The dorm crests would adorn the back of purchased t-shirts. Shirts would cost $5 per 100 shirts made.

Currently, 1,200 tickets remain for the student section for this Saturday’s men’s basketball game against Eastern Illinois. Student tickets can be picked up at Gate B before 4 p.m. Monday and Wednesday.
