What’s Senate up to?
NU Senate has been working hard this semester to approve funding requests for different clubs and events. Weekly meetings on Thursdays at 5pm in Hurst 110 are a perfect opportunity for students to propose new clubs. PAC meetings happen periodically and are the best way for students to make their voices heard and to hear what Senate is doing for our campus. Senate will discuss and vote on several projects at the end of this semester and the beginning of spring semester including extending weekend dorm visitation hours, putting an ATM on campus, changing Caf hours and meal plan structures, and creating an outdoor amphitheater/bonfire space on campus. Contact Senate Chair Calvin Horne (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions or keep an eye out for more updates!

Winter break officially begins on Dec. 16, and classes resume on Jan. 13, 2014. If you live in the dorms, both the residence halls and the Caf reopen on Jan. 10.

It’s that time of the year again, and Midnight Breakfast is right around the corner!

Enjoy some food with friends before the late night cramming for finals really begins. You won’t want to miss out!
IS Responds to Recent Tech Issues
Recent tech issues on campus have caused frustration when the internet stops working, and panic ensues when NU students can’t submit their papers. The IS Department recently defined their mission statement: “Supporting the NU community with excellence in technology and extraordinary service.” The department is working hard to fulfill this mission to make the use of technology on campus more enjoyable. Tech issues will come up from time to time, but IS wants to be available for students at anytime. Students are encouraged to email email@example.com, stop by the Barton office, or call (425) 889-5310 when issues with NU technology or personal tech items arise.
