Discussion of HSA as an Organization so far and Midpoint Check with Members:
Some of the topics we discussed: How is everyone doing in class, life, etc. Below 2.0 puts you in academic probation. Below 1.0 will get you barred. Withdrawing from a class puts a W in your transcript, but doesn’t lower GPA. Not the best option but better than letting your GPA fall.
Round Robin – How was your week? For those students who feel like they need help with classes, we discusses that there are MSI tutoring, as well as personal contacts who have taken/TAed for those classes.
Concerns with the org: Are we putting enough logistics into the meetings? Our meetings seem quiet and dead. Lee says that he is comfortable around here and feels that Melody and Mai Xia are doing their part. The freshmen shared that they all feel comfortable at our meetings. They say that they like being here, and the only thing keeping them from coming are their busy schedules.
