Recap of Belles Awards: like the sister team award and creative awards on personality of team; making more of a dinner? Variety of majors does not really tell you anything about the team; gifts were good and picture ok; 30 min good time frame; swag more of a group shot so everyone’s the same? Teams must be excited in order to make it more fun, what can be done to make people more excited? Perhaps promote well in weeks leading up to it (SAAC members);
