3.  SAO staffing announcement

Leah Flynn, Director of SAO, writes:

Welcome back to Spring Semester to 2012!

With that, of course, brings a change or two in the Student Activities Office. I
would like to take this opportunity to introduce Colin Codner, the new Assistant
Director of Student Activities and Finance, who started in SAO on January 2nd.
Colin comes to us from a private school right outside Boston, where he served
as the Director of Financial Services. He has extensive background in financial
applications, management and budget management and of course, working with
students. We are very excited to welcome Colin on board! Some of you may have
already had the fortunate opportunity to meet with Colin, but for those who
have not, I encourage you to stop in and say hello. He is a friendly face and
an immense help to students on organization budgets, answering questions
relative to student organization financial management and concerns, and just
everyday problem solving.

Welcome, Colin!
