Students shared their ideas: speakers who can provide information regarding the dental cleaning, Student Benefits Plan, Bursaries and etc. 5.3 Set Rep Forum ďƒź One of the Set Rep sends a newsletter every night to students. I am wondering if we supposed to do something the same. Newsletter is a good way to share information with students. However, it is up to you to decide how you would like to inform your class what is going on Campus. Set Reps expressed their ideas how better to do it.

 The quantity of Sales Representatives in the Great Hall was more excessive than usual this week. They contacted students and tried to sell their stuff. Can we limit it somehow?
