New Tamb&ysn Rules will be implemented by the Activities Comnittee this year induding the ban of leaving PET bettles at the tambayom. All Engineering DrgOII1izations are mder strider rules OIS the Administration formed 01 TOIIJIbayan C0mmittee whJ waJd do spot inspections which wjl evertualy serve as their basis for an org's tarrbayan evaluation, ergo tambayan renewal as well. .Ardher hot topic is wtlelher or not to move the tambayan from Melchor HOIII to UP AECH. After weighing the pros and cons of the p0ssible relocation ofthetambayOln (strlIOiS Eng'g Week etc), no one ruled in favour of relocating completely to UP AECH.

The Engineering Ex Card which is exclusive to 10 orgOII1izations in the College eX Engineemg get everyone pun1Jed up about the pos-

Reports on the fiimm.oial standing of the sexy org hOlve been disa ISSBd (more ilfo available LpJn request) wtlich is why Finance Committee is still callilg out to those whJ haven't sellied their accounts (renewal fee and hopefully the long overdue LoveRage FX"ofits).

Much attention is given to Org Recognition as the rules fur recogAtion has once agan been chOinged. A. TamI:I&)'an AppIicstion is now implemented which means that there will be a reshuffling next yeOir of the tambayOln which will be based on the organization's performance. The new criteria irl.Jdes Activities POIrticipated and Handled. To get rnaximan credits for the Activities Participated. CURSOR needs to participate in 2 events per- category (Department.

Fresh from its silver anniversary, UP CURSOR we~oomes ~he new scnool year with passion and intensity! And of course, the Executive Comm~1itee istnere o:n the frontlines leading om beloved organization into its 26th year.

UP C U RSO R started out with just a small 9 mu P of bright yOUlrllg men and women who saw the need for an organization to represent them and thl.eir feillow students rom the Department of Computer Science. The org eventually glrew aJrll.d fllouris.hed, undcu bted Iy proving itself worthy of bei ng one of the best orgs in the Golillege of lEngi neen ng.

Arlld whla1's ilts secret? Well, Who needs one when you've got members lilke CliRSOR has? Tah::rllEedl, smart, athlejjjc, arliistic, you name it 'Sexy' certainly tDc!l\: em 13iwll:ole new meaniingwHlilli C U RSO R. Its more than just a batlile ary; it's a state of Ibe,i rllg ~

BljlI 1iIl:e Mimes are clhal1lgiing and fast, and ilt's going to taee aJrll excenent team of people to steer UIS to 1iIl:e might direction. We asked tn is year's ExeComi about tne issues lh:ey face and how they'll hand Ie the ahallenges of the com i rllg year. lrlliiis is What they have to say:




How dO' }'Oti plan to ensure that the mem~ bets rema.!nwell~rouoderJ. giving their best for .oofh meir Beads AND the org?

You've mentioned p1an,soJ making this year's @rte graoder than ever. Now is it going. and ~ are the ottter plans mat you have jn stot:e far 'hescooof year?

There's no denying the Importance of money In the organization.

How do you plan to keep the organization's financial slatus as stable as possible this year?



There were some changes with the Org Recog process this year, coned? What were the difflcuffles yotJ'!Je encountered and how were you able to handle them?

i· ......... UiIIW_ There seems to be a good turnout of applicants this Semester. Whaiare you and your committee doing to keep them interested and moUvated throughout the application period?

One of Exfe's primary concerns is getting sponsors rorthe arg. But how do you manage to rope up when thMe'S still the whole global financial crisis at large?

How do you wish see CURSOR evolve and

progress on its 26th year? What are your hopes and dreams for the organization and for its membefS?
