Tyler Menezes presented a report of StudentRND's operations over the last two months: - Most efforts were focused on closing CodeDay - StudentRND announced CodeX, which served to gain knowledge of how to close press, help close two sponsors, and to get the community excited about community engagement. - During CodeDay, #CodeDay was trending on Twitter! Overall, results were positive, as presented in the previous meeting - The Individual Donor Plan was put into place, with a goal of raising $10,000 by the end of the calendar year - StudentRND followed up with all students, sponsors, and venues involved in CodeDay in the form of a post-venue survey
