A.S. Council At A Glance

    Special Presentation

    Mark Stickel, chair of the A.S. Task Force on University Expansion, reported that the task force expects to complete its student survey by June 2003. Stickel noted that $70,000 has been invested in the survey, which polls students on their use of Price Center and Student Center facilities. Stickel also suggested that if the survey’s findings warrant a referendum, it be on a separate ballot than future A.S. fee referendums.
