The presidents of student organizations at this college came together Sept. 19 in the craft room of Loftin Student Center for the first Presidents Round Table meeting of the semester.
Student Life coordinators Mark Bigelow, Jacob Martinez, and Carrie Hernandez guided the meeting. These monthly meetings give each president a chance to talk about what is going on within the organization and discuss upcoming events.
Thirty student organizations and clubs were represented. Each representative was introduced, and they shared the purpose of their group.
The group decided the food items groups will sell at Oktoberfest, a campuswide fundraiser at 9 a.m. Oct. 23 in the mall.
A bowl went around the room with numbers so each organization had a fair chance at deciding what they would like to sell.
The office of student life is allowing groups to sell food prepared off campus if the food is certified by the city health code and prepackaged.
Martinez said in an interview Thursday that before this semester students could only sell food that was prepared on campus.
The city’s health code says that all foods “must be from an approved source and/or licensed facility or prepared in the temporary food establishment.”
Foods like homemade cakes, cookies, beans and tacos cannot be made offsite and sold on campus.
For more information on Oktoberfest, call Martinez at 210-486-0126.
