Transcript "I think that this year there is a sincere agreement among the different organizations to work together to make the campus a better place." RHA President Andrew Becker campus UNTTY Cheryl Luedke The Council of Campus Leaders is a group comprised of ambitious students from various organizations on campus. Representatives from the Students' Association, Student Program Board, Residence Halls Association, Metropolitan Volunteer Program, Inter fraternity Council and Student Publications are members and attended a leadership retreat organized and conducted by Campus Activities. Twenty-five University of Houston students loaded up cars and vans and headed for the countryside in June 1996 for a weekend of relaxation and retreat. But these weren't just any students, and this wasn't just any retreat. This was the annual Council of Campus Leaders Retreat, and the participants were UH student leaders. The retreat focused on building better relationships between groups, increasing students' interest in UHs various organizations, improving member retention rate of those organizations, and helping other groups with all of the above. "I think that this year there is a sincere agreement among the different organizations to work together to make the campus a better place," said Andrew Becker, Residence Halls Association president. Leadership-building activities, question-and-answer sessions and group icebreakers characterized the two days at Trinity Pines Camp site. Becker said the retreat gave the students a chance to network and share ideas for the good of the campus. Kique Parilla-Rojas, RHA's national communications coordinator, agreed saying, " All the people that were (at the retreat) were people who like to work and give something to the university. It certainly was a leaders' retreat!' The students got the chance to truly test their leadership abilities when one of the vehicles broke down on the way to camp, the restaurant where they planned to eat dinner was closed down and scorpions were among the bedside companions. The Council of Campus Leaders worked diligently throughout the fall semester to become an official UH student organization. At least 10 students met every other week along with Dean of Students William Munson, while a subcommittee of the group worked on drafting a constitution for CCL and creating a body for the organization, (continued on page 163) Organizations SA executives Speaker of the Senate Jon Erickson and Director of Public Relations Melanie Orange discuss issues important to the university during the Campus Leaders Luncheon. As members of CCL, THEY HELPED WITH MANY IDEAS TO CREATE A MORE UNITED UH COMMUNITY.
