Mike Freeman: Overview of Thank-a-Thon • FOOTBALL, ROWING, BASEBALL HELPED OUT TREMENDOUSLY and SAAC would like to thank you! • Think about Thank-A-Thon becoming a FALL and SPRING event for next year.

Callie Boyd: Budget cuts and opportunities • Another Budget Cut of 41.2 Million dollars starting Fall Semester might go into play (coming from out state governor)(This is NOT 100% yet I don’t think) • $200 dollar increase will be given to each students tuition start in the Fall and the students will then have a cap on student tuition, meaning it will be on set price and cannot go up and down. (This is NOT into play yet, but an idea from the board) • Please E-Mail Callie Boyd with ANY personal opinions on how you think Clemson could budget better, or any personal ideas your have that helps you budget and share them with her. • The Board is thinking about Revising Resident Visitation Policy to 3am-8am.

Becky Bowman: Update on Student-Athlete Opportunity Fund • The Student opportunity fund that we were pushing CANNOT happen anymore, being that we as Clemson are going through these budget cuts. • Although, ALL incoming freshman WILL receive a full scholarship their first summer session before FALL semester starts, to help Clemson compete with other schools, and also give the Freshman a great Kick Start on their college experience with their grades and etc. (This was an Administrative Decision)
