Number of Kappa Omicron Nu student members at end of academic year: 70, including 50 initiate members.

Omicron Beta Epsilon held 6 meetings this year.

1. Meetings for the year, identifying Required Program:

Meetings would consist of the officers, members and advisors. We would discuss what events were coming up for our club,the budget, the decorations, member involvement, ways they could volunteer, the food at the next event, what we would discuss at the next meetings, goals for the semester, fundraiser ideas, etc.

2. Campus or community projects, activities, or events:

Research and initiation night included students that were currently or previously working on research and we had them come and present their work. This included food and a food demonstration from a local middle school and discussions about the research, followed by initiation of new members. We had a food and clothing drive, where new and old members would donate a certain amount throughout the semester and we donated some of it to our school food pantry as well as a local homeless shelter. At the end of the fall semester we served food on Thanksgiving at the homeless shelter and brought them the donations. Public Policy day was another event we had which involved members from the community and other universities that came and discussed current public policy topics. We had a fundraiser at Chipotle that raised KON money for the following year. As well as another initiation night and graduating seniors received their honors cords, which provided food, a power point presentation of what KON is and this left room for discussion.

3. Tentative plans for next year

The new officers will need to plan research and initiation night, a fundraiser, public policy day, and another initiation and cord giving night and plan meetings for members to receive hours and figure out ways for members to volunteer and donate items.
