Open Issues:


1) Kin Cup

-no grant money left so everything needs to be paid for out of core

-gym is still not secured

-please promote event as it’s this Monday!


2) YEP

-food order submitted, went with 30 pasta, 30 vegetarian, 20 Mediterranean meals (too expensive with the antipasto option)

-tickets will be printed for Monday; will be selling them for $15 (Mon-Thurs), $17 the following week (Tues/Wed), $20 the day of on the Thursday

-Sabrina will also print posters to advertise with

-if we are worried about numbers at some point, we can extend the invite to people outside the department selling the tickets at an increased cost

4) Department Discussion

-limited academic advising appointments available and some discrepancies in SIS concerning classes

-some Kin students feel there aren’t as many options for upper division biomechanics classes (or the enrollment is very limited i.e. BPK 301)

-an upper division 241 equivalent with both a theory and practicum component would be ideal

-incorporating more practicum based hours in the Kinesiology degree would help better transition students from the classroom to the workplace



The meeting of the BPKSA was adjourned by Loryn at 1:20pm in room K9622. The next meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 23, 2016 in room K9622.
