        • Safady: Agree with Kimberly

          • Gabra: I just think that in previous years we used the funds so it shouldn’t be a big problem.

        • Wan: How much is in the account?

          • $5,000 in senate allocated account

        • Baggia: I like the idea of having the option so if you dont think its write then pay

        • Chin: I would pay the $30 it's unfair to interns because they do just as much work as we do

          • Increased need for student mental health services

          • Increased enrollment increased from 27,000 to 30,600

          • Expansion of academic space without the addition of student services space

          • Put it on the ring road side

          • What will the building look like?

            • Copying something like the engineering designs and other designs on campus

          • Free up space of the disability center

            • Career center. counseling center, student health center, veterans services center, SWHP and CARE will get more space freed up

        • Space Needs

          • Academic integrity, admissions office, development office, and many more will get more space.

        • Considerations

          • Looking at Ballot Name & Language

        • Questions?

          • Chin: Why to move services into new buildings

            • Because then it would be all in one space there would be all in one wellness building, one building and dont have to move around a lot its better service

          • Lim: What's the cost?

            • $75 Million dollars

          • Henry: How would it affect the parking spots in some lots?

            • Free low density parking so it will probably be re-absorbed into the free space and we will build more parking as the campus keeps going.

      • Colleague: Brian Harvey (Chancellor)

        • Board of trustees = 56 trustees on board

          • Help us make connections in the communities

        • Raised $65 million 2 years ago, last year raised $120 million to support the university

          • Money is being directed to something they want to support/help

        • Don’t know how much we will raise we are looking on $75 million

          • Student priority of building this building.

        • For this building here there are no state money available

        • No way to predict when we will raise that money

        • Going to try to identify and find those people who are willing to make gifts of $40-$50 million for helping build this building

      • Cara

        • My goal in this is to not only let people know about the importance of this building but what we are trying to do this

        • We lose students in between when we refer students from place to another and making this will really help and be more convenient for students.
