"SA President Addresses Senate, Assembly"

SA President Christian Oliver pledged Tuesday night "to make SA a respected institution on and off campus that all students can look to for leadership, protection and entertaining activities."The vow came in Oliver's "State of the SA" address given before a joint meeting of SA senators and assemblymen.He said that for the organization to be successful it needs university administrators' respect, which this year's SA acquired by demonstrating a willingness to work cooperatively with key administrative figures.Oliver cited his Fall Fest dealings with Robert Arkeilpane, director of the division of athletics, as an example of such regard."We could get the best bands in the world, but if they didn't have the one date we had in Alumni, they weren't coming," said Oliver.When SA canceled this year's Fall Fest following the Sept.

I usually write stories about hockey, so I'm used to games lasting three periods.
