1. There was a motion to suspend by-laws to allow Adam to be excused so that he might represent the Council on a Campus Life Task Force. It passes (11-0-0).

2. Deadlines for Off-Campus Housing. After much discussion, it is decided that Policy should draft a proposal saying that those requesting permission to live off-campus should do so at the end of November, with formal notice in February and stricter enforcement. This will be presented at the next meeting.

3. Chris brings up the idea of combining the lottery segment for five and seven person suites and for triples, doubles, and singles. It is shot down, due to concerns it would hurt students.

4. The issue of what else to discuss is brought up: there is great dissent as to whether the dirtiness of co-ops should be within our jurisdiction, as well as the Safe Ride program.
