On Wenesday I met with Mark Smith (Dean of Students), Lisa Trayhan (Dean of Frist Year Experience), Deborah Nazon (Dean of Institute Diversty) and Olivette Sturges (Assistant Dean of Minority Student Affairs) all at different times to talk about V-Day! I'm still surprised at how I managed to get appointments with them so quickly. I guess the chain started with Mark Smith. His secretary Roslyn is awesome. It was she that suggested I meet with Lisa and Olivette and then convinced their secreteries to schedule me for that day.
I was quite reluctant to meet Olivette since she had a strong disliking for me after I made a big stink about the Leader's Council petition outside her office. But she was impressed with my ideas, and said that she hoped that someday we could work on an issue on which we were on the same and not opposite sides of the fence. I can't believe she took notes during the meeting! Lisa sent me a follow up email and thanked me for my ideas and is also looking forward to working with me. *grin*
I've on an ego trip!
