Through our efforts, the menus were changed and the food was improved. After you've eaten in the dining halls for a few probably wonder how the food could ever have been any worse than it is, but believe me, it was.

Our officers (Nancy President; Naricy FI a Vice-President; Gail Benjamin, Treasurer; and the rest of the council) will make every effort to give you the help you need. At the beginning of each year, the dorms here have a “no visitation\ policy. Since this is obviously not what the residents usually desire, something must take this policy's place. Usually within a day or two of your arrival, your assistant dean will call a dorm-wide meedntj. At this meeting he or she will explain the visitation policies and other pertinent information (such as election of dorm officers, dorm rules, etc,). After this meeting, the dorm will have visitation from 12 to 2 daily until a permanent policy is written. This policy will be written by the interim board of the dorm and voted on by all the residents. The policy is then sent to the Executive Board of I.R.C. and then on to the hill. Upon the approval of Dr. Salters, the permanent policy will go into immediate effect. This whole process usually takes only about two or three weeks. All dorms here last year had 24-hour visitation, and this will probably continue in the future.

What is it? Well, Central Council is your student government. The Council is a seven member board which is elected by the students in the spring of every year to serve a term of one year. The duties of Central Council are to 1) distribute, as they see fit, the student activity fees (budget allotment figures appear elsewhere in the paper); 2)initiate legislative and executive policy in the name of the student; 3) act as a liason between students and the college administration. In the past, besides its function as the student government, Central Council has organized and managed programs benefificial to the entire campus community. One such program was the ED-U '73 educational marathon conducted here in the spring for a three-day period. Hundreds of lectures, demonstrations and panel discussions as well as visual displays were presented during the three days. While the whole progra, was poorly attended, the idea of the concept of the program was heartening. The Central Council organization also showed its interest in the ecological environment of the Geneseo campus by organizing a recycling project which accounted for disposal of tons of glass, paper and aluminum. The Freshman Register which most of you will be receiving is also a project of Central Council. It is responsible for the compilation and publication of the booklet. Throughout the academic year, the Council involves itself in many projects and is often in need of student aid and support. Feel free to stop up to the Central Council offices in the College Union, Room 315, for it is Y O U R student government. Legislative Council meetings w;ll be conducted Thursdays at 7 p.m. in College Union Rooms 322-323 throughout the 1973-74 academic year. Attend if you want to find out what your student government is all about.
