On Monday, Residential College Association (RCA) discussed several key upcoming events, encouraging any and all to come out and get involved on campus.

Murray State Youth Non-Profit Leadership has proposed two projects to be presented to the Residential College system.

One is a drive for goods to be donated to Merryman House located in Mayfield, Ky., while the other is a raffle for a men’s basketball signed ball and jersey with proceeds going toward the West Ky. Mentoring Group. Tickets for the raffle are being sold $1 per ticket or $5 for six tickets, and the drawing will be at Saturday’s BracketBuster game at 5 p.m. Contact Casey Rowe in Elizabeth College for more information on both projects.

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, the T-Room will be serving steak and shrimp for lunch, while Winslow will be having a special dinner where you can frost your own cupcake.

The Women’s Center is sponsoring a Girl’s Night Out for Wednesday, Feb. 15 at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are still available at the Center, which is located in Applied Science Room 103.

The Women’s Center will hold a program on the second floor of the Curris Center on Feb. 21-22 titled “Mirror’s Mess with Your Mind” in order to raise awareness of eating disorders. Graduate psychology students will be performing evaluations to determine whether or not participants have eating disorders of any form.

On Mar. 7, the University will host its annual all-major Career Fair. Festivities begin at 10 a.m. and end at 3 p.m. on the third floor of the Curris Center, as students of all classifications are encouraged to attend. Proper attire is business casual or better as many local and regional businesses will be on hand to discuss job opportunities for graduates and undergraduates alike.

Attendance to RCA meetings is strongly encouraged for future meetings as by-laws and new guidelines are being tabled and voted on in the future. RCA is under the Student Government Association (SGA) umbrella and will thus be taking on the new GPA minimum requirement as adopted by the SGA Executive Board (2.7 GPA). College Courts is also making a bid to join as a delegation to the RCA beginning in fall 2012.
