II. OLD BUSINESS
A. ACTION: Motioned and seconded that the minutes from February 19,
1998, be approved. CARRIED.
B. Greek Organization Banner
Jana Sparks presented samples of the proposed banners that the Greek
organizations would like to display on the light poles on the diagonal
walkway in the quad. These banners are initially to be purchased by the
University and will remain up all the time. Bill recommended that the replacement
of the banners should be borne by the individual organizations as the need
arises. Future expansion was questioned and it was felt that there is a
possibility for expansion in the future but not for quite some time.
III. NEW BUSINESS
ACTION: Motioned and seconded that the council accept the designs as
presented for the Greek organizations with the additional request that
the banner have the design printed on both sides. CARRIED.
A. Recreational Facilities Study
Scott shared with the Council his ideas that he has for future expansion
to meet the needs for recreational areas on campus. He displayed his target
areas as follows: Davis Field will be upgraded and maintained to support
the women's soccer team; Bartz Field will be filled and leveled in an area
that can accommodate a soccer and softball area; Cadet Field will have
increased maintenance of the fields to make it a safer playing field; Outdoor
Recreation Classroom area (96 acres in the hospital area) would be made
into a biking, hiking and possible equestrian path area with the natural
study area that could be utilized by the Biology, Archeology, and Geology
departments; south recreation area (around where the future site of the
Performing Arts Center is to be located) could be made into soccer and
softball fields in the future; Holt Arena football practice field to be
renovated to be a safer area for team practices; and the area that is behind
the cemetery could have biking, hiking trails improved that could access
different parts of campus.
The Council was very interested and supportive of the ideas that Scott
presented and look forward to them blossoming sometime in the future to
meet the ever present and expanding recreational needs of students, faculty,
