I just wanted to thank you again for this survey. I made the presentation last night to the Board and they were impressed with all the information we were able to collect. Next month our Student Trustee will be asking our Board to support a $5 activity fee. This will help out so much since this year our AS budget was $0. They had to beg borrow and steal just to provide minimal services. Thanks again!Jennifer Ounjian • Senior Academic/Student Services Manager • Contra Costa Community College District

Thank you so much! This is great information and will help us a lot with structuring our own RHA on campus. ASGA has been such a great asset for us and we look forward to bringing our students again to the National conference in the fall.Ann Rivera • Assistant Director, Student Activities Coordinator • Minot State University
