COMMUNITY NEWS

Donate to the Senior Class Gift of 2003
Attention all seniors of the class of 2003. The seniors of 2003 have decided to donate money toward an endowment that will provide money for student scholarships. Once we reach our goal of $10,000 the interest money will start being distributed and every 5 years at our class reunion we will be able to say where we would like the money to be used in order to best benefit the University and support what we are passionate about. As a special bonus we have also secured matching funds up to $2003 compliments of President Phil Eaton. This means that every time someone gives $20.03 (our suggested donation) the total donation to the fund is $40.06! Please help us reach this goal. You can donate online at http://advance.spu.edu/ways/donation.asp with a credit or debit card. Direct your gift to "Other" and type in "Senior Gift 2003." You can also donate by using a check or cash, contact committee co-chairs Ruth Kuhnau- starlight@spu.edu or Julie Olson- jules@spu.edu for a pledge form and return envelope. We appreciate any donation amount that you can give. Thank you in advance for making this gift the success we know it will be.


Commuters-Last Chance to pick up SPUD’s
Commuter students who do not pick up their SPUD by Wednesday, January 22 will forfeit their copy. The SPUD is available from 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. in the ASSP Office, located on the first floor of the Student Union Building. Call (206) 281-2126 with questions.


AIDS Walk
Campus Directors are being sought to help organize a 5k AIDS walk on April 12. Through the Elizabeth Glaser Foundation, twelve cities around the nation are participating in this event. The money raised will go toward the treatment and therapy for AIDS patients in Africa as well as education about Mother to Child Transmission. It is key that awareness is gained in the U.S. about our role in contributing funds to the U.N. and the Global Funds for AIDS. Through this walk we hope to gain attention from the media and in turn help to shape the global agreements that affect the course of the AIDS pandemic. If you are interested in helping to coordinate teams of students from SPU to walk in this event, please contact Kristen Leighter at Leighk@spu.edu or (206) 281-6988.


Student Forums on Possible Semester Switch
Ashton Students, come to your hall lounge to learn about the possible switch from quarters to semesters and how it could affect you. Ashton Lounge Thursday, January 23, 7:00 p.m. This forum will include a presentation by Dr. Les Steele, Vice President of Academic Affairs, and will be moderated by ASSP leadership. There will be an opportunity for you to voice your comments and questions about a possible switch to semesters. Please email any questions to assp-president@spu.edu or call (206) 281-2494.
