    • Darya was involved in the meeting on behalf of graduate housing
    • Jenny and Ardita will lobby for the clubs' interests
  1. On-campus room allocation round (Jenny)
    • 30 rooms in colleges for graduates, applications handled by the board (Ravi Rathnam could do it)
    • contract is for one semester, but you can also stay longer, or cancel it every month
    • graduates will be moved in the summer break
  2. Graduate of the year award (Jenny)
    • Collect applications, form committee (usually, the assistants to the deans), GSA steers the whole process. Community nominates, provides information about the nominees to the committee. Depends on academic achievements and social work.
  3. Short Introduction to the Confluence Wiki (Christoph)
    • Next time, when everyone is there
    • For now: internal space created, move announced on old homepage, ask Christoph in case of any problems.
  4. Miscellaneous:
    • SHSS Journal presentation (Bilyana Tsvetkovska)
      • (platform for unpublished research papers, short articles (2,000 words), reviewed by professors, printed here)
      • absent; Ardita: Bilyana wants one person from the GSA board to help her, to make it endure after she graduated.
      • Ask community: Who wants to get involved?
      • Jenny: Maybe turn it into something like a club?
    • Environmental campaign for Bulgaria (funding request, Peter Rashkov)
      • money for postage/stamps needed urgently
      • can't vote formally now. Proposal: informal agreement (all in favor), promise to fund it, formally vote later
