SFB funds CUB lecture for serial killer expert

The Sudent Finance Board (SFB) unanimously awarded $2,838.40 to College Union Board (CUB) for a lecture featuring Jack Levin, an expert on serial killers.

Wendy Lambour, CUB event coordinator, said the event will be “almost like a forensic files or CSI show on campus.”

SFB allocated $2,500 for Levin’s talent price. The rest of the funding will be used to book the Mildred & Ernest E. Mayo concert hall and pay for publicity.

“I really like this event,” David Adams, SFB senior representative, said.

The event is scheduled to take place on April 6.

The Italian Club requested $1,662.30 for its “Saturday in NYC.”

This is the second time Italian Club requested funding for this event, as it was denied funding three weeks ago.

SFB awarded $1,209.30 by an 11-0-1 vote.

Italian Club revised the event to include a trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. SFB subtracted $448 for the museum ticket price and $5 for a movie rental.

“They changed the event to make it appealing to us,” Sheil Naik, Student Government Association (SGA) assistant representative, said.

The event will include dinner at the Italian restaurant Strada 57 and an Italian movies shown on the bus ride.

CUB was unanimously awarded $1,371 for “Co-Sponsorship Movies.”

CUB will showcase movies, on three different nights, in association with Art Student Association, Union Latina and Teachers of Young Children Association.

The expenses will be used to pay for the screening rights of each movie, which include “The Darjeeling Limited,” “Motorcycle Diaries” and “Freedom Writers.”

The showings will take place in April, in the Travers/Wolfe or Cromwell lounge.

SFB, which prior to the meeting had a total balance of $34,072.64, allocated a total of $5,418.70.
