|And one of the things that was kind of obvious to me is that a lot of students, freshmen through seniors, even grad students, because of their busy life,
||00:00:00.000 - 00:00:08.452
|we don't know our college administrators, don't know our student leaders, and the student leaders obviously don't them until campaign time,
||00:00:08.452 - 00:00:16.885
|and so one of the things we tried to do is, hey, let's marry this program with University Dining with our student government
||00:00:16.885 - 00:00:25.840
|where student leaders, myself, the treasurer, attorney general, senators, my staff, we'd all come and we'd invite a handful of leaders across the school.
||00:00:25.840 - 00:00:39.381
|and we gave them the opportunity to-. We'd sit at the tables and one would be at each table and then we would invite the students to come in.
||00:00:39.381 - 00:00:47.852
|The meal's free, just sit down and just have a conversation, and let's talk about the topics that are on our campus today and let's hear your point of view.
||00:00:47.852 - 00:00:56.030
|That means now if you have a problem in student housing, if we've got one of our student housing folks there, or someone from our financial aid office is there
||00:00:56.030 - 00:01:05.205
|and you've got these questions that you can never get anybody to answer for you, you've got that person right there and they can give you an answer.
||00:01:05.205 - 00:01:11.707
|Now you might not like the answer but it gives you access and then if you ever go call them up or go to their office then I can have a face to go with a name.
