IV.       United Way Fundraiser

a.         Ideas

i.          Possibly have a week of events, by using successful past group events held on campus such as food can drives.  Fundraiser would happen sometime in the week of November 14.  We will contact United Way’s campaign to help us brainstorm for the events. We will partner with University Affairs for this event.

 

V.        Other Ideas for Events

a.         Ice Breakers

 

i.          To get more attendance in athletic events, our committee wants to work with the Athletic department to fix that.  Our idea is to have students pay a base fee, such as $20 with that they will receive a Penguin T-Shirt.  The whole concept says the more events you attend, the more points you receive.  Once you receive a certain amount of points you may redeem them for merchandise or other prize.  Our committee will have to contact Rick Love or Joy to ask them to join our committee meeting to hear about our idea.

II. Roll Call

a. Present:  Justin McIntyre, Nicole Pavlichich, Teresa McKinney, Samantha Henry, Mark Sember, Molly Rogers, Lillian Justice, Alessandro Cutrona

b. Absent:  none

c. Excused:  none

 

III. End-year Committee Report

Last year’s Academic Affairs committee compiled an end of the year report including all agendas, minutes, and all research done on First Year Experience.

 

IV. Last Lecture Series

Potential speakers are Dr. Amy Cossentino, Dr. Ron Shaklee, and Dr. Stephen Gage.  The committee decided to ask Dr. Gage.  We are looking at a Thursday in November at 3:30 pm.  We also need to increase advertisement with fliers, a banner email, and provide refreshments.

 

V.  General Education Restructuralization

Last semester, the General Education requirements were restructured in Academic Senate.  The number of knowledge domains has been lowered from 11 to 10.  YSU currently requires 46 hours; the next closest university is the University of Akron at 42.  However, FYE would fall as a general education course.  We are unsure if Academic Senate would want to add a credit hour when they are trying to reduce the numbers.  Also, many majors do not currently allow for another general education course.  Is FYE feasible?  Can we work FYE into a Reading and Study Skills?

 

VI. Foundations of Excellence

Dr. Becker at the Reading and Study Skills Center has introduced us to program similar to FYE.  Foundations of Excellence is a 3 year program where the outside company would first evaluate, then implement, and then evaluate again.  The cost of the program is $36,00 over the three years; however, there are grants which would offset some of the costs.

 

VII. New Business

What fundraising efforts has your organization recently put forth? What is being planned?: For the past 10 years, we have had a great partnership with Clear Channel (95.9 and 98.9), and have been a part of the Panera Bread Pink Zone which is sponsored by the station. The Pink Zone is made up of numerous local businesses in the Mahoning Valley who make special October Promotions and in turn donate to our cause through Clear Channel at our event. We assist the Pink Zone by providing every participating business with pink ribbons and breast cancer awareness materials, painting pink ribbons in front of all the participating businesses, and assisting them with their Panera Bread bagel day, where all proceeds are donated to our event as well. We additionally have a partnership with Chik-fil-a in Boardman and throughout the month of October they will give us a percentage of the profit they make from each strawberry milkshake they sell. We are setting up a table at the Boardman Rotary Oktoberfest to promote our event in the community, and also to raise money through donations. We will also be painting faces for the children in attendance as well as making cheer-o-grams for the day of the event that the public can decorate in honor or memory of a loved one affected by cancer. On October 19th, we will be hosting “Pink Out Day” on campus to help promote breast cancer awareness month, as well as our event. We will be hosting a bagel eating competition, as 95.9-KISS FM will also be present, capturing events of the day. We will be painting people’s faces with pink ribbons, as well as passing out pink lemonade with our information about the Pink Ribbon Cheer Classic. The night before, we will decorate the campus with all pink decorations, with the hope of promoting our event on campus. We will be taking donations at this event, as well. Our organization is also currently pursuing donations, both monetary and non-monetary, from local businesses and community members to help defray the cost of putting on this significant fundraising event.

What community service has your organization participated in recently? What is being planned? Please be specific as to how many participate and if it is done on behalf of the organization.: Our chapter is very service-oriented and participates in many local and national service projects each year to support not only our philanthropy but others as well. Below is a description of some of these events and the participation of our chapter.

Clean up the Street: Each semester our entire chapter devotes about an hour of our time to maintain a 5th Avenue parking lot on YSU’s campus. This is a mandatory service project that requires all members to be in attendance.

Komen Tissue Bank in Indianapolis: On September 24th, our chapter will be making their 3rd trip down to the Indianapolis University Simon Cancer Center to either volunteer or donate blood and breast tissue. This bank is the only one in the country that collects breast tissue for research.

YSU Box 1 Loge Volunteers: During football season, our organization has been asked to volunteer in President Sweet’s loge for each home game. Two different members of our chapter volunteer each game to greet the guests, pass out nametags, and complete various tasks to keep things running smoothly.

Adopt-a-Nursing Home: For the past few years we have adopted Park Vista Retirement Community and plan an event with them each semester. On November 18th, we will be hosting our 5th Annual “Senior Prom.” During this event, we will be treating the residents to an exciting night of dancing and socializing. We will decorate the dining room, supply cookies and punch, and entertain each of the residents.

Beatitude House: Our chapter donates various items to this local shelter for women and children in the valley. We collected school supplies at the start of the semester and we will be making baskets for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas with various items for the families at the shelter.

Race for the Cure: Race for the Cure is a national fundraiser sponsored in part by Zeta Tau Alpha and the Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation. Various races are held throughout the year all over the country. Each year, all of the sisters of the Zeta Gamma chapter drive to either Cleveland in October or Pittsburgh in May to volunteer in the Survivor and Registration Tents. We also participate as runners or walkers in the event.

THINK PINK!®: THINK PINK!® is an idea that we promote various times throughout the year by passing out THINK PINK!® cards and ribbons, shower cards, and other information regarding breast cancer awareness and self-exams. Typically, we set up a table in Kilcawley Center in which all of our sisters take turns handing out this information. We will pass it out at the Oktoberfest as well.

Zeta Tau Alpha and Yoplait®’s Save Lids to Save Lives: As a part of a national service project, our chapter collects Yoplait yogurt lids continuously throughout the year to send in to Yoplait, who donates five cents per lid to the ZTA Foundation.

Name of Event: Pink Ribbon Cheer Classic?Date of Event: October 23, 2011?Location: Youngstown State University, Beeghly Center?Expected Participation: 6,500?Total Cost of Event: $10,000

Description of Event: The Pink Ribbon Cheer Classic was started eleven years ago as a way for our organization to raise awareness and money for breast cancer research, awareness, and education, which is our national philanthropy. It is a day-long exhibition in which more than ninety cheerleading squads are invited to pay a registration fee to perform a three to five minute routine and dedicate it to women who have survived breast cancer or live on in their memory. Squads are awarded based on the following: team spirit, bringing the most spectators to the event, and raising money for our cause in their communities. Individual cheerleaders may enter a jump-off competition in which other prizes are awarded for the best cheerleading jumps. Also included in the day are apparel sales, a concession stand, Chinese raffles, and recognition of high school seniors and breast cancer survivors. Jerry Mac from 95.9 KISS-FM hosts the event and also does a live broadcast part of the day. One hundred percent of the money raised through the Cheer Classic is donated to breast cancer research, awareness, and education on behalf of the Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation. Since its inception in 2001, the event has raised over $520,000 for the cause. Last year we raised over $115,000.00. We are taking great strides in making this event an even bigger success this year. As this is our eleventh event, we have truly made a mark in the community. Our event was honored ten years in a row with the Kessler Award for the Greek organization with the best service fundraiser. We were also honored at Ohio Zeta Day ten consecutive years for the top Ohio Chapter in Service.

How will this event benefit YSU and the student body?: Not only is an event of this caliber beneficial to those who have been affected by breast cancer, but it also holds many benefits for its host school, Youngstown State University. The event has an impact on all who attend and shows how students of YSU can positively impact the campus and community through this event. This is a wonderful way for prospective students who may consider attending YSU to see the university and a student organization positively contributing to the community. With such a diverse group of people who attend, 90 cheer teams from all over the area of different backgrounds and communities, students and alumna of YSU, and members of the community of different ages and backgrounds, this event touches so many different types of people in so many ways. Most importantly it unites others for the common goal of raising as much money as possible to reach our event goal each year.
