On Tuesday, Sept. 6, Student Assembly held their first meeting of the 2011-2012 school year.

During the discussion and action portion of the meeting, Director of Residential Life and Housing Services, Kent Drake-Deese, and Assistant Director of Residential Life, Jana Jacobson, sought support from student government members regarding the guest policy as it pertains to Pumpkin Fest weekend.

“During Pumpkin Fest, problems increase dramatically in res. halls and on-campus,” Drake-Deese said. “We are interested in providing a solution.”

This proposed solution resides in limiting the number of guests allowed in the residence halls.

The current policy allows each student a three guest maximum. The new policy would be altered to allow each student to only have two guests during the weekend of Pumpkin Fest.

“With 2,750 or so students on campus, at the three guest limit were talking 14,000 people on campus,” Drake-Deese said. “We are not really equipped to deal with that many people.”

Jacobson explained the town of Keene is looking for support in making good choices on Pumpkin Fest as the city is trying to make Pumpkin Fest more family-orientated this year.

“Of the people who get transported to the hospital, about 75 percent of transports are guests,” said Jacobson. “People have noticed what Pumpkin Fest has transformed into.”

As someone who has lived in Carle Hall for three years, Student Body President Colin Daly said, “It is nearly impossible for resident assistants to keep tabs on over 1,000 people.” Daly explained that the three guest policy triples Carle’s “350 or so students.”

As for the change in policy, which would limit on-campus students to a maximum of two guests, Jacobson said, “We are waiting to finalize it.”

Jacobson said in addition to limiting the number of guests, upping enforcement by having officers at the front desks in residence halls, 24 hours a day, is her “unofficial plan.”

Jacobson said any final changes in policy regarding Pumpkin Fest weekend will be communicated through email and Facebook groups.

In other government news, Vice President Katelyn Williams spoke in regard to freshman elections. Williams said freshmen applications for office positions are due by Sept. 16 at noon and are to be delivered to the offices on the third floor of the L.P. Young Student Center.

The election will be held on Sept. 19 through MyKSC announcements, said Williams.

  13. I actually have no idea in regards to this. I dont know When i believe your ideas, however i ‘m going to merely consent to disagree. Wanted article though. – Drop us a visit at my replica watch store sometime!

  14. Hello there, I really like your blog. Is there some thing I can do to receive updates like a subscription or some thing? I am sorry I am not familiar with RSS?

  15. I believe that is a captivating element, it made me assume a bit. Thank you for sparking my thinking cap. Every now and then I get such a lot in a rut that I simply really feel like a record.

  16. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  17. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  18. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  19. Good write-up, I am normal visitor of one’s blog, maintain up the nice operate, and It is going to be a regular visitor for a lengthy time.

  20. Some genuinely good info , Glad I discovered this. “Perfect valor is to behave, without witnesses, as one would act were all the world watching.” by La Rochefoucauld.

  21. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  22. Which was type of inspiring! Totally sudden. Now I understand what I am heading to do tomorrow 🙂

  23. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  24. Hola! I’ve been reading your blog for a while now and finally got the courage to go ahead and give you a shout out from Atascocita Texas! Just wanted to say keep up the excellent job!

  25. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  26. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
