I. Program House Council

-Ways to help independents eel more included in program house community?
-Interfaith house – needs might be better served in a townhouse setting, due to small membership. Could help their recruitment to be moving to a new location like 111 Brown (would free up sophomore-only living space in Diamon)

-Housing options fair for first pick, after Winter Break, the Thursday after we return, with roommate dating social

III. Policy
-The residential council calls upon the appropriate university bodies to make Hegeman Hall a gender-neutral body for the 2011-2012 year – unanimous vote in favor.
