Come Speak Your Voice Tomorrow!

townhallThe UPUA Academic Affairs Committee plans to hold an open planning session tonight tomorrow at 8 pm in the HUB in which the presidents of the college’s Student Councils and the public are invited to come and weigh in on the AAC’s final plan.

The AAC will be joined in room 302 by the Student Council presidents, the elected academic representatives, and members of the public who will all engage in an open discussion about the items such as the AAC plan (which will then be voted on), as well as the final briefing plans for this semester’s Finals Frenzy.

Another item on the nights agenda will be a proposition on Penn State’s Academic Achievement Award which was started as an honor to students who have contributed significantly to the Penn State community.

And finally, for you freshmen who haven’t experienced finals week yet (Godspeed), you’ll at least be a little relieved to find out that the AAC hosts an event call Finals Frenzy. The Friday before finals week, members of the AAC host an event in the HUB, where they hand out food and school supplies such as pens, pencils, blue books (and for this year, rumor has it they’ll have vials of swine flu for those who need extra study time…just ask discreetly). The AAC will reveal its final plans for this year’s Finals Frenzy  tonight tomorrow as well.

Students interested in local student politics, as well as the Penn State community in general, are welcomed to attend the session tonight.
