Associated Students President Jamie Miller said local philanthropists Ron and Alexis Fowler donated $25 million to the College of Business Administration.

She said this is the largest donation SDSU has ever received and the college will be renamed the Fowler College of Business Administration.

Dean of Students Dr. Randy Timm said has 207 recognized student organization on campus.

He said SDSU has 70 less recognized organizations compared to last year, and that several organizations are having problems with advisors.

He said there are new environmental health and safety guidelines that require a handwashing station and fire extinguisher to be at outdoor events.

Timm also talked about the SDSU homecoming court. He said this year’s winners will be called royals.

“We will not have a gender-based process in choosing the winners,” Timm said. “The royals will be two outstanding leaders.”
