Fall was a very productive term for the Syndicate. We were able to fund rental vans for 10 graduate students who
attended the ASC conference in Nashville in November using special request money from the Board of College
Councils. Also, we conducted a survey of graduate students regarding current officers, and we are working to
implement suggestions on improving leadership and communication for the organization. Finally, the Syndicate
launched its website, located at http://qrove.ufl.edu/-qclass/. Thanks to all who participated or volunteered their
time and energy.
Student Government Budgets
Organizational budget hearings for the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences Student Council (CLASSC), the Syndi-
cate's parent organization, were held in early January. Budget hearings for the Board of College Councils are
scheduled for February. When BOCC hearings are complete, the Syndicate should know exactly how much fund-
ing to expect for the 2005-06 school year. These funds will be earmarked primarily for graduate student travel to
conferences such as ASC and ACJS.
The Syndicate coordinated lunch events with the four visiting Assistant Professors in January and the two visiting
Professors in February. These luncheons were an excellent opportunity for graduate students to interact with
faculty recruits and discuss current research in the field. Student turnout to the colloquia and lunch sessions was
very good, and we believe that the program was well-represented. Thank you to all who attended!
Elections for the Syndicate's three offices (President, Vice President, and Treasurer) are scheduled to take place
in March. (please turn to Syndicate Update, page 6)

Basement Cleanup Proiect
We are in the process of reviewing the
needs in the shared basement offices
(computers, furniture, and so forth). Some
materials will be disposed of, while we are
optimistic that some new equipment will be
purchased for graduate student use in the
near future. If you have suggestions on
ways to improve the efficiency of the base-
ment, or if you'd like to volunteer to help out
with the project, please contact Kate Fox via
