The Student Finance Board (SFB) zero-funded a $764 request from Pi Mu Epsilon, the mathematics honor society, by a vote of 11-3 at its March 23 meeting. The organization’s request also sparked a conversation on whether the board should fund departmental honor societies. […]
The Student Government Association (SGA) devoted the bulk of its meeting last Wednesday to a presentation by Lynda Rothermel, on the architecture of the new library and its surrounding area.
