Over its past three meetings, The Student Finance Board fully funded two organizations and partially funded two other ones.
On Sept. 25, the professional business fraternity, Delta Sigma Pi, requested $450 for bus tickets for an event called “Wall Street Walks,” where it will be doing a tour of Wall Street in New York City. The request was fully funded.
To start the meeting on Oct. 2, Union Latina requested $1,000 for art supplies, food and prizes for its ‘Paint Your Flag’ Nooner, which took place on Thursday, Oct. 10 in Alumni Grove.
The event allowed all students to express their identity and culture through art, and served as a way to get students more involved in Hispanic Heritage Month. The event also included the option to play a traditional Latin game called Loteria, a game similar to bingo.
SFB fully funded the program, which was co-sponsored Union Latina and the College Union Board. The board also reviewed the base budget for Women in Business.
The organization requested a total of $80 for posters and poster materials, and received $50. The request of $30 for “posters for companies coming to campus” was tabled, pending further clarification, according to the meeting agenda.
Women in Business also requested $1,360 for its Women’s Student Leadership Summit, which will occur either in March or April in the Education Building.
The organization received $1,340, as the request of $20 for additional posters was tabled pending further clarification.
SFB also fully funded Women in Business’ $75 request for food for its Christine Cox-West Talk, which is set to take place on Oct. 22 at 5 p.m. in the Social Sciences Building Room 326. Cox-West, who is a partner and director of insurance brokerage at the Fortis Agency, will explain career opportunities for women in a professional setting.
At the meeting on Oct. 9, Alpha Phi Alpha requested $1,715 for a Professional Presentation open to both high school and College students, which is scheduled for Oct. 26 in the Brower Student Center.
The fraternity received a partial fund — the request for food and photographer expenses was fully funded, but money for prizes was zero funded due to a lack of feasibility.
