Vitarelli takes CC presidency

Sophomore Anthony Vitarelli, currently treasurer of Campus Council, was elected president of the organization for the 2003-2004 academic year at its general body meeting Thursday night.

Running unopposed, Vitarelli, who also serves as a Duke Student Government legislator, said he hopes to build upon the success of this year and compile a review of the newly enacted housing policy - including examining the future of linked housing, quadrangle squatting and options for students studying abroad.

His agenda also includes possibly adding incentives to the annual review process and examining the alcohol policy.

"I see Campus Council as an organization that is gaining much respect on campus," Vitarelli said, "and I want to continue to expand on that."

Vitarelli will join senior Matt Slovik and junior Jonathan Bigelow as one of the "Big Three" leaders on campus-the presidents of Campus Council, DSG and the Duke University Union, respectively.

The primary residential governing body on campus also elected the rest of its executive committee at the meeting. Junior Gerald Oliver won vice president; sophomore Pasha Majdi took communications coordinator; and freshman Chris Kallmeyer secured the treasurer position.

Outgoing Campus Council President Andrew Nurkin said the new executive board will be a strong one.

"I have full confidence that every single one of them will succeed in their office and succeed in pursuing the goals of Campus Council," the senior said. "They will work comfortably together as a cohesive group, and they have really good ideas about the issues that they will be addressing."
