Hannah and Finance

  • ​Dues are past due! If you haven't paid them, I will be sending an email reminder to you before next week's full board, but please try to put aside $30 if you need to! Points will be frozen if you do not pay/talk to me by next week. And nobody wants that, so please, pay me. Or email me! I'm an understanding person.
  • I will be using my super nifty (and nerdy) random number generator to choose the incentive program winner next Sunday!! Remember the winner will be able to get money back, not have to pay next fall, or put money towards swag.
  • Speaking of swag, pay me for your hats! $10 will be due on March 6th. That's a full month away- plenty of time to save up $10!

New Incentive Program

Now how three options. You may choose to get your money back for spring semester, not pay for next fall, or you may choose to put your money towards apparel items (that means free stuff). Please note that if you paid for both semesters in the fall you are eligible for the incentive program this semester as well.

Sorry guys, forgetting is no longer a valuable excuse to be included in the incentive program. Hannah will however still be lenient with valid reasons as to why you are late, but you MUST let her know what's up.

Payment of all items is due 2 weeks after receipt.
