Fourth university-wide campus reading session to take place tomorrow
All faculty and staff members who registered to receive a copy of the selected campus reading, “The Undergraduate Experience,” are invited to attend the fourth university-wide session at 3 p.m. tomorrow in the Baker Pattillo Student Center Twilight Ballroom.
This session will be very important as attendees will assist in creating concrete proposals for changes at SFA. The proposals will be based on ideas within the campus reading that received the greatest support during the three previous sessions.
