Connie Lambert reported that our Army ROTC took 1st and 2nd in a recent regional cadet challenge.

Richard DeShields reported that Discover Orientation for winter quarter is next week. Approximately 90 students will attend.
Tracy Terrell reported that we have 50 new freshmen and 380 new transfers coming in winter quarter. In addition, many courses currently have huge wait lists, so she asked that folks please take a look at class section reports prior to going on vacation, so we're ready for winter quarter.
Jim reported that on November 5, CWU Board of Trustees approved a $34.5 million, 30-year bond sale. Proceeds from the bond sale will be used to replace Barto Hall. Demolition of Barto Hall will begin December 10, with the new hall ready for occupancy in time for fall quarter 2012.
