Quick: I think for me the thing that stands out the most 00:00:00.000 - 00:00:03.493
is not anything that was during either of the two times I was an elected official, 00:00:03.493 - 00:00:08.758
it was probably some of the stuff with the Hurricane Katrina relief for me 00:00:08.758 - 00:00:12.964
and how you can bring people together who are working-- 00:00:12.964 - 00:00:18.970
who have their own student organizations and they've got their own great ideas 00:00:18.970 - 00:00:23.778
but you can bring them together as a campus, and how do you present NC State as NC State, 00:00:23.778 - 00:00:29.914
not just you've got the student government working on a project over here 00:00:29.914 - 00:00:34.703
and you've got IRC doing some fundraising over here for Katrina relief, or whatever the issue is, 00:00:34.703 - 00:00:41.207
but getting NC State to respond as a body. 00:00:41.207 - 00:00:44.898
People from UNC were calling me and saying how are you guys doing this? 00:00:44.898 - 00:00:48.352
how are you guys making this a campus-wide thing? I said well it's sort of organic. 00:00:48.352 - 00:00:53.769
We asked people to stay in touch with us, we come up with ideas and ask people to run the ideas, 00:00:53.769 - 00:01:00.759
and to me that was really neat, just doing something that was NC State, 00:01:00.759 - 00:01:05.060
not student government, not IRC, not UAB, not anybody else, not IFC or any of the different groups, I mean all the different acronyms-. 00:01:05.060 - 00:01:16.532
Yeah, I mean I'm just throwing them out, but it's NC State doing something, 00:01:16.532 - 00:01:20.315
it's not any particular group, and we're doing it together 00:01:20.315 - 00:01:23.915
it's about doing it as a community and putting that community out to the rest of the world. 00:01:23.915 - 00:01:29.478
