Byte to Eat will be extended to Friday, November 28. Keep making announcements and bring donations. We'll have Chelsey send an e-mail reminding all students of the drive.

Jeremiah is doing paperwork for the career fair.

Big Park event was a good event. 140 students attended which the company thought was a good turnout.

The Game Developers' Association (GDA) would like to become a part of the CSSS, at least provisionally, to better serve their members, who are largely computer science students. They currently have 30 registered members with an additional 30 on the mailing list. Furthermore, they are limited in the number and quality of events they can do as they have few resources in terms of manpower. They currently do biweekly workshops showcasing new technology. They are also looking into inviting industry speakers and doing tours of graduate labs to promote the field of computer science. It was agreed that this would be a mutually beneficial relationship and Jeremiah will be working with the club on the details of the relationship.

There has been no update from the locker committee. They have been unresponsive to all forms of communication. There is no way lockers will be done before the deadline so Albert and Amy will speak to Moyra to extend the deadline. Albert was appointed the new chair of the locker committee in hopes something can be done soon.
