Student Government Budget Meeting, March 13 (3 PM - 9 PM)
Still Smiling After Six Grueling Hours
Student Senators welcomed adjournment after endorsing $2,683,047 in Student Activity Fee allocations to 37 programs and $1,205,129 for Intercollegiate Athletics (increase of 2.07% for Intercollegiate Athletics ($3.86 per credit hour to $3.94)).
Requests were trimmed by $61,583, a significant amount when faced with automatic cost of living increases for employees paid from Student Actiity Fees, and a predicted enrollment down-turn. The busing program's Green Transportation fee had to be increased to maintain hours, Campus Recreation's Sports Clubs, Theatre, Music, all requested support. Senators cut their own Student Senate budget.
To fund the needy programs will take an overall increase of 4.90% ($8.36 per credit hour to $8.77). The overall increase triggers a referendum vote April 9, 2019.
