The Operations Councilor, Ms. Frances Lee, told everyone to invite their council associates and project heads to the semestral CA/PH Team Building tomorrow, November 30, Saturday, from 1:00pm to 4:00pm at the Vinzons’ Rooftop.

V. SR Updates !

!

The Student Relations Councilor, Mr. Jet Padernal, updated the council on various student relations matters.

!

Council members were delegated to the different tasking for the CA/PH Team Building Seminar.

!

On the cross-registrants from Tacloban: They were all rebracketed to Bracket E2 and are given a stipend per semester. The administration, in coordination with the School of Business Student Council and UP Advertising Core, will also have a fundraiser for them.

IV. USC Update !

!

The VSB Representative to the USC, Ms. Fen de Leon, updated the council and led the discussion regarding the UP Board of Regents (BOR) decision updates. Despite the lack of quorum and the Student Regent's absence due to illness, the BOR approved the administrationbacked proposed reforms to the STFAP, amendments to the UP System Code which include banning organizations to recruit freshmen during their first semester, and a Chemical Engineering lab fee hike. The Board junked motions of deferral from both the Faculty and Staff Regents.

An initiative was made to have an academic book drive to lend the new entrants books they need for the semester, and this will be handled by the Education and Research Councilor, Ms. Camille Calma.

On Karolfest:
 Like the Lantern Parade, it was rebranded in order to make it an avenue to raise funds for the Yolanda victims. There will be a pledging system and the winner here will be awarded as the People’s Choice Award. This is apart from the real KarolFest award which is based on musicality among other things. Mr. Jet Padernal reminded council that everyone is required to attend KarolFest on December 13, Friday.

The point of action discussed were to: 1. Be more aware regarding the matter so that we can form a more informed stand 2. Conduct a survey, similar to the name change survey that was conducted, so that there is information coming from VSB directly 3. Ask the USC or LCC to conduct a universitywide campaign asking statements from the freshmen who joined organizations last sem and upper classmen who experienced that joining organizations during their first semester of college proved to be beneficial for them, with the help of organizations. It was discussed that spearheading a campaign on our own, though ideal, will not be effective without the whole UP system’s support.

!

Ms. Fen de Leon forwarded these insights and suggestions to the USC in their meeting and will update us at the soonest convenience.

VI. Updates !

Bb. BA ! The project heads, Ms. Christine Chicano and Mr. CJ Felix gave out reminders for tomorrow’s photoshoot.
