Updates 3-30-2009

Post  driverx77 on Mon Mar 30, 2009 8:36 pm

Wow - been an exciting couple of weeks around campus, eh?

In between making a bajillion videos and chatting with boku students, I've been:

1) Posting updates and info in the vcusga forums
2) Speaking with the CT for various stories - election coverage, constitution, etc.
3) Encouraging students to get out and vote/participate w/ SGA events
4) SMC information - we have some meetings coming up over the next few weeks - I'll update once we conclude the meetings
5) Conducted a poll on the MyVCU portal (per Roberto) regarding recycling on campus - the end result is that we should have more recycling bins on and around campus to increase student awareness and usage of recycling.

Condensed Update 3-18-2009

Post  driverx77 on Wed Mar 18, 2009 8:45 am

1) Lots of forum posts, threads, and updates
2) Boku video work - results will be flying around on Facebook and Youtube with any luck...
3) SGA Student Parking Problems Video - took me awhile to finally settle on how I wanted to pull it off, but I like the end result. HD version will be on youtube sometime soon. In the interim, the compressed version will get the job done. =)
4) SMC Meetings - We approved the use of funds for the student media to cover the VCU Rams in the NCAA tournament - well worth the costs, I believe.

11-15-2008 Update

Post  driverx77 on Sat Nov 15, 2008 2:42 pm

1) The football poll is generating lots of results on the MyVCU portal. While the overall numbers of participation drop for successive questions, hopefully by the time the poll is finished on 11-17 we'll have a generous number of participants. Upon completion of the poll I will be provided a breakdown of all the info for the responses. Currently, almost 8,000 people have voted in the polls and the idea of a VCU football team is supported by majority of respondents. The larger question (no surprise) is funding. Also, along with the results of the polls, there are a lot of user comments that are being collected and compiled from the survey. I am sure going through all of them will prove interesting.
2) Anthony Spain and I have had a some conversations regarding our next steps for the football team idea - this includes a possible survey of the alumni association as well as finding out if any feasibility studies have been done by VCU.
3) Sent additional information out for the VCU Book trading website and the Peer Mentors program.
4) Setting up a poll regarding the VCU SGA book trading website to run on the MyVCU portal - this should run after the football poll ends.
5) Posted various threads in the VCU SGA forums - internship info, Peer Mentors, programs on campus, etc. Feel free to add any thing of interest to these threads to help make use of the forums and spread the word.
6) I have continued to avoid being stabbed in the eye... thankfully. =)
7) Will send out info/updates about the art projects as the goods become available.
Cool Updated the CT, WVCW, and University Edge with news and info - football, school song contest, etc.
9) Hail to the Redskins - time to handle business in D.C.
10) Finished Resistance: Fall of Man 2 for the PS3. Excellent game, though too bad it doesn't have a campaign co-op like the first one.

-Attended SMC (Student Media Commission) Meeting - covered the possible transition of "The Vine" to a new title: "Ink" - this would reflect the legacy of the student publication "Reflections in Ink" which later became "The Vine." We should be voting on the title change at the next SMC meeting.

-Dallas lost again - hopefully this trend will continue. WOO HOO!
-Pre-ordered Resistance 2 for the PS3. How convenient that it comes out on 11-4-08. I'll get to vote and then eradicate bad guys before going to class. If anyone here has a PS3 or Xbox 360, hit me up @ driverx77 (Live ID and PSN ID). Wink
