Senior class officers gave a report to Senate on Thursday concerning money they had raised for the senior class gift. The senior class has doubled the amount of money raised in comparison to last year, including donations from alumni, Baylor senior's parents, Baylor seniors, and the Baylor versus A&M game day shirts.

Senior class officers are working on giving students the possibility to donate money towards the senior class gift through extra bear bucks, and on a tab placed after a purchase at the BU bookstore.

Freshman class officers have also been busy at work, looking for ways to improve the Baylor campus.

Efforts have also been made to publicize the BIN towards the student body, and to look into increasing the service and efficiency of the Health Services Center located in the Student Life Center (SLC).
