Freshman Class Council is looking for a few good men and women, said a co-director.

FCC, a leadership organization designed for freshmen, is now accepting applications, Paige Manley, an FCC co-director, said.

She said the group has existed for many years but its purpose was never defined.

'FCC will have a new twist this year,' Manley said.

Mark Freeman, an FCC co-director, said that the purpose of the organization is to allow freshmen a chance to develop leadership skills while working with other students.

FCC will have many responsibilities this year such as the freshman float in the homecoming parade. Students on FCC will also work closely with student as class representatives.

'FCC is a great way for freshmen to get their foot in the door of student government,' Manley said.

Selection of students will be based on an application and interview. From the completed applications, a number of students will be chosen for an interview. A list of these will be posted Sunday on the windows of the mailroom in the Bill Daniel Student Center. Students chosen for interviews will need to go to the Congress Office (located in the student center) to sign up for an interview time.

Interested students should complete an application which are available at the information desk in the student center. Completed applications can be returned to the information desk or sent to FCC co-directors. Friday is the last day applications will be accepted.
