ISS Relocating / Moving

Contracts / Apartments / Phones /
I thought with many of
you moving to a new place now would be a good time to talk about the
importance of Contracts. Please remember that if you move into an
apartment make sure everyone living in the apartment is on the contract.
If you do not whoever is on the contract will be responsible for all the
costs associated with apartment. This is true with all bills connected to
the apartment. This is also true with phone plans - if you connect with other
students to receive a family plan whoever is on the contract will
be responsible for the bills. I would hope that none of you would
leave someone with a bill to pay. How would you feel if someone did it to
you? A contract is a contract and if you sign it you are responsible for
all attached to the contract.
Remember to check the dates of your
final exams. Your final exams will most likely not be held on the day of your
normal class meeting. It will be different. If unsure please verify
with your Professor or check the website at : http://www.mnstate.edu/academics/finalexamschedules.aspx
Select Spring 2015.

Volunteer Opportunities for Spring 2015
Student Organization Officers and
On the morning of Saturday, May 9,
the Fargo Marathon will be running through the MSUM campus for the first time
in its 11-year history! We will celebrate the occasion by gathering in the
campus mall to cheer on the runners and demonstrate our Dragon Pride. In
addition, we will need numerous volunteers to help hand out water/food to the
runners, help with set-up and clean-up, and various other tasks. This would be
a great opportunity for your student organization to get involved!
We are asking anyone that is willing
to volunteer that morning to sign-up via Sign-Up Genius. Go to http://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090d45a4ac2aa46-msum,
indicate which shift you can help, click “Submit and Sign-Up”, and enter your
contact information. We will then communicate more information to you as we get
closer to the marathon.
If you have any questions, please
ask Steve Fox
