Dear ,

The Student Programs Office has spent many, many hours reading through all of your Mid-Year Reviews. Thank you so much for taking the time to fill these out. If you have not already, you will be receiving your feedback soon. Please be sure to read the suggestions carefully and develop a plan for your organization's development. We would be happy to meet with any organization regarding the review or just to check in. Please stop by or email spo@bc.edu to set up a meeting!

Presidents should have received two messages regarding training in the past two week, one introducing a new training method ("training to-go") and another with the three Mandatory Training dates for the spring and FAQs. If you are struggling to complete the 30 credits, please contact Adrienne Dumpe to construct a plan for the spring semester.

Happy Valentines Day and President's Day to you!

The Student Organization Team
