Each year, the IST majors gather for an etiquette dinner to prepare for job interviews and their professional career. This is a great idea and I don't think that it should be restricted to just one small group of students.

I'd like to expand it and offer it Monday night through Saturday night for one week during the fall. Career Week occurs in April and I'd like to have a week in the fall that focuses on career preparation as well.

The International School of Protocol (based in Maryland) will facilitate an evening by incorporating the following concepts:

Dining Skills:

Good dining skills are a must - whether while socializing with business associates or friends, conducting business abroad, or entertaining international clients here in the United States. The Dining Skills program will give you useful tools for dining situations where business and social relationships are developed and strengthened. This program includes:

Dining Decorum
Toasting
Body Language at the Table
Difficult-to-Eat Foods
Host/Hostess and Guest Duties
Business Entertaining
The Silent Service Code
Handling Accidents
American and Continental Styles of Eating
World-Class Entertaining
Place Settings
Silverware Savvy
Dining Do's and Don'ts

Mingle, Mingle:

First impressions really do last a lifetime! Mingilng and networking should be considered a lifeskill for a college student who will be moving into the work world. Building a network is a lifelong project that will pay dividends throughout a career. Studies have shown that most people have "mingle-phobia" so this program teaches tools to make the mingling easier and more beneficial. Participants will learn:

Creating the most effective initial impression
The art of making a successful entrance
How to work a room
Entering conversation groups
How to initiate a conversation
Appropriate topics for small talk
Making a graceful escape

Social and Corporate Etiquette and Professionalism:

Proper etiquette provides the extra polish that will enable you to present yourself with confidence and authority. This program includes:

Eye Contact
Listening Skills
Nonverbal Communication
How to Make an Entrance and Work the Room
Mingling
Handshaking - the Ultimate Greeting
Introducing Yourself and Others
Forms of Address
Rising to the Occasion
Remembering Names
Conversation Skills
Networking
Professional Image
Dress for Success
Electronic Etiquette
Itemized Request

$700/evening for the facilitator

150 students/evening

This will be HEAVILY marketed during New Student Orientation Advising as well as Campus Life Orientation.

Also, there will be heavy marketing in advance of the event via posters, flyers, SSJ, and email.

At the event, we'll be advertising other campus events, including Career Week in April.

A Call to Men is a day long seminar geared towards men. While women are invited to join as well, the seminar will focus on prevention of sexual assault and violence towards women by educating men on issues such as gender disparity, male privilege, and how to fight dangerous social and cultural norms which position men to behave in potentially aggressive ways.
Itemized Request
Student participation fee for this event is $20, paid to the YWCA. The estimated amount for maximum participation is $600. $20 per student will allow them to participate for the entire event, plus a light breakfast and lunch will be provided by the YWCA.
Itemized Matching Funds
All other costs will be handled by the YWCA
Open to all Campus?
HD FS Club has already begun discussing this event with others at Club Rush and around campus. We will use fliers to generate further interest.
# of Students Benefit
There is room for 150 participants, and while many community members are already planning to attend, there is room for as many as 50 students to attend.
Enhance PSY
All college campuses benefit form seminars and workshops designed to educate students about prevention of violence and rape. This seminar will benefit the York campus by giving the male population a unique and powerful learning experience that not only helps prevent violence towards women, but will also help men of all ages understand themselves better.
Desired Outcomes
The YWCA is an important local organization, and one that has given PSY students opportunities for internships, employment, as well as countless volunteer experiences. The HD FS Club is honored to be able to work with the YWCA to bring this event to campus, and we feel this is an outstanding opportunity for students to participate in a program designed to benefit our entire community. Sexual assault awareness is a huge topic of interest right now, as well it should be. Because our campus is a commuter campus, we often miss out on prevention programs such as this, and that is unfortunate.

Details
I am planning on purchasing 500 tickets to Hershey Park to sell to the students. This will be the 5th year of doing this massively successful event (previous hosted by Matthew Sutton). SAF covers roughly half of the ticket price while the students pay the other half. There is no profit made. This allows students to be able to purchase up to 2 tickets per student ID for roughly 74.12% off of the regular ticket price.

To acquire the full amount of funds needed to afford the grand total, I plan to work with LeighAnn Myers (Admissions, Lion Ambassador Adviser). I will also work with Sue Ruch (Bursar) to acquire the needed funds ahead of time to be able to facilitate this proposal.

This proposal enables students to be able to see their SAF funds used directly. This also allows students to be able to enjoy their semester break and go with a friends and family to a local amusement park that is typically overpriced for many college students.
Itemized Request
Amount of Tickets - 500
Price per ticket $31.50* ----------- $15,750.00 Grand Total
Price per student $15.00 ----------- $ 7,500.00 Amt. paid by students
Difference $15.75 ------------ $ 8,250.00 Amount paid by SAF

Regular Ticket Price - $57.95
Amount students save - 74.12%

SAF funds are used to cover a portion of the cost for students to purchase tickets.

*This price is used because I will be purchasing these tickets at a special early bird reduced price.
Itemized Matching Funds
$7,500 which is covered by the students
Open to all Campus?
Like years in the past, we will post flyers and signs on all of our building proposing the time I will be selling tickets. Also I will send a couple emails to all of the students informing them of this opportunity. I will sell tickets during the lunch hour and in the evening 5 days a weeks until all tickets are sold (approx. 1-3 weeks)
# of Students Benefit
If each student purchases 2 tickets (the max allowed), this allows 250 students to be impacted.
Enhance PSY
This proposal would help to create comradery within the student body. Because this event has been ongoing for a few years, students remember the opportunity to purchase tickets and take a break from the stresses of college life.
Comments
With cooperation with Matt Sutton, this event for the past couple years and have really seen the joy it has brought hundreds and hundreds of students.

We also feel that this is an excellent use of SAF funds and proves to students that these funds are used for them. At the minimum of 250 students who will benefit, the SAF break down comes to only $33 used on each student.

We thank you for your time and consideration of this proposal and allowing the continuation of this successful event.

Upon seeing the condition of the new room, students may become encouraged to get involved in student activities. A more effective area will be created for those that have access to the room. It will become a place that students will want to use to get their clubs together for meetings or to work on SGA/club projects.
# of Students Benefit

Enhance PSY
Renovations within the SGA room will promote club interest and activity. Promoting any club will peak student interest in getting involved on campus. When students work together, they learn in a unique way. They learn how to apply the skills they have to contribute in group settings. Working together to communicate effectively and plan events and complete projects is a useful workplace skill.
Desired Outcomes
Our proposal is aimed for the Student Facility Fees. Priorities of this campus include fitting with the 2008-13 Campus Strategic Plan. Renovating the SGA room will increase student interest in getting involved on campus. It will also give a feasible area to those already involved to work effectively and to better the campus as a whole.

As well, we will be posting flyers across the entire campus so all students have equal opportunity to hear about the event. As well, we will be using social networks (facebook, twitter) to spread the word, as well as old fashioned word of mouth. The event is open to all students of any ethic race or background, and the Hispanic Student Association encourage all students, Hispanic and Non-Hispanic alike to join the club. We always emphasis that you do NOT have to be Hispanic to join.
# of Students Benefit
15-30
Enhance PSY
This recruitment meeting is crucial to sustainability. One thing we have lacked on campus is student participation. This first meeting will draw in interested students, and when presented with the inner workings and activities of the club, we will be able to hopefully pique enough interest to keep them coming meeting after meeting to join in and participate consistently. The Hispanic Student Association looks to celebrate and incorporate Hispanic culture. The club teaches are shares aspects of the MANY diverse Spanish cultures that reign from South America, Central America, North America and Europe. Our goal is to educate, celebrate, and incorporate Hispanic culture. As far as increasing enrollment, this event does not necessarily pertain to that concern. But, the HSA participates in Open House, and is available and always more than willing to participate or inspire events that may help increase enrollment. With this event, and the goal of the HSA in general, is to enhance Penn State York. How will we do this? But involving students of all cultures and backgrounds to come together to share and celebrate differences by being able to explore another culture, Hispanic culture to be exact. With this vital kick-off event, the Hispanic Student Association would like to be a more prominent presence on campus to enhance and better the home of our education that we all share. First, gathering a strong team is essential to do so, which will be done be the recruitment meeting.
Desired Outcomes
Our intended outcome is to increase student involvement across campus, and within the Hispanic Student Association specifically as well. From this event, students will know what our club is all about, they will be able to continue to participate and be a member, and they will be able to demonstrate all that they will learn and take away from the club over time as an active member.

Details
The event is the Dominican Student Conference. The conference will be filled with numerous workshops and networking opportunities for our students. Each of these workshops address issues facing Dominicans in the United States and will be headed by a series of panelists. These panelists are some of the most distinguished writers, professors, filmmakers, producers, activists, politicians, and CEO's our community has ever seen. Two of the most notable would be Junot Diaz, famous fiction author and Senator Juan M. Pichardo, the first Latino elected to a Rhode Island Senate Seat.
Event Purpose
The purpose of this event is to unite the numerous undergraduate and graduate Dominican, Latin/Hispanic student communities currently dispersed throughout the United States, with the goal of addressing and organizing them more effectively against the social and academic issues that continue to afflict them. As well, to serve as an opportunity for the community to collectively celebrate the rich Dominican heritage that its members share and continue to keep alive in their respective college communities.

Though we are the Hispanic Student Association of Penn State York, our membership is open to all students. In fact, I'd say as our club as grown this semester our non-Hispanic members are beginning to outweigh our Hispanic members. We are advertise our club meeting widely on campus with flier and word of mouth. As well, regarding the conference, it is open to all students, and has been spread by word of mouth. I'm in the process or making a flier to post on campus regarding the conference.

This will be a show for the community to come and celebrate African American history, and culture
Event Purpose
Other shows such this one has been success in the past drawing a large crowd of people. This event would be no different and would help bring many of the community folks in to appreciate the talent and hard work of our students. This would also be a great moral booster for the Black Student Union which is currently seeking to have some form of identity to the club, and a sense of accomplishing something on campus. This would help bring in more members to the club and make them more aware of the club on campus
Itemized Request
The majority of the funding will support the utilization of the Pullo Center. A preliminary talk with their staff showed that they are committed to producing a show with high quality while keeping the cost as low as possible. they are charging us just $2334.00 total. This includes all of their staff, the space, lights, sound, and all the trimmings. This is indeed a bargain, as they have reduced their costs significantly for these events. The remaining $166 will go to support ancillary costs as well as other needed materials
Itemized Matching Funds
There is tremendous staff support for this event; many folks are giving their time and talent. Additionally, the Pullo Center is willing to work with us to reduce the cost significantly. While this initiative is supported in part by the Diversity Committee, they do not have funds to put to match due . We won't be able to proceed without support from SAF
Open to all Campus?
The Pullo Center will be advertising this free event. Stall Seat Journal, email, Facebook, Twitter, and large posters will also advertise the event. We'll also be asking faculty members to support the event through their classroom teaching, as applicable
# of Students Benefit

Comments
This will be Penn State York's third Alternative Spring break trip to New Orleans. I think this trip is especially important this year when we need to show pride in our university and present a positive face to the larger community. Without SAF support, the students will not be able to afford this opportunity.
