MONTICELLO- The University of Arkansas at Monticello held an Assembly meeting to discuss new and old business.

   Jay Hughes, vice-chancellor of student affairs, discussed the relocation of the Student Government Association to an office in the administration building. The office will be located next to the VCSA’s office. The VCSA also reported a plan to remodel two of the dormitories on the UAM campus.

   “We currently plan for renovations of both Bankston and Horsfall hall,” Hughes said.

   There was a presentation from Tau Kappa Epsilon recognizing its newly formed chapter on the UAM campus. The organization presented a plaque to the chancellor.

   The administration reported a new record enrollment for the fall semester with a total of 3,945 students, which is close to a 600 plus increase from the summer of 2008.

   The assembly also discussed the new Wi-Fi network system for five of the buildings on campus, as well as the plans to change the course catalog.

   The next scheduled Assembly meeting is set for Feb. 7 at 3:15 p.m. in the Memorial Classroom Building auditorium.
