James Hong (GSC acitivities) would like to expand SPICE to other dorms.
SPICE is a program in S-P that has biweekly dinners focusing on diversity. One head, 5 coordinators (independent), 15 members per group. Meals are funded by the program.
It is hoped dinner coordinators can be recruited from Ashdown. Incentive for coordinators: none given, though received a token of appreciation in the end.
Groups meet biweekly and dates are set. Coordinators get head count, set dates, order food and pick topics (do not need to lead conversation).
As of now, no work on the monetary end.
Suggestion: JHong could directly post to Ashdown moderated list (we would let it through)
Groups are handpicked: nationalities, gender, major, duration in US, countries visted given at signup
Mats in cardio room, speakers purchased. You can just plug in and go.
Excercise room too small for chin-up bar, no room in cardio room (which never seems to be full). Alternatives to chin-up bar machine- contact Denise.
Customizable dumbbells- will need to be purchased in person.
Intramurals. Will begin again in fall- last year soccer and table tennis.
