She announced that Here for Home is hoping to raise at least $1,855 from the point campaign. This specific number was chosen to be symbolic of the year the College was founded. All points donated will be used for cleaning supplies, such as gloves and work materials for volunteers.
The deadline for student organizations to register was Friday, Nov. 30, Devin Dimming, junior history and secondary education major, announced.
“There were an alarming number of club that did not register this year,” Dimmig said. Originally, there were 34 on-campus clubs that did not register, but at the meeting on Wednesday, Dimmig said that the number went down. If organizations did not register by that date, SG would have to derecognize them. The Engineering Honor Society, Bonner Volunteers, Her Campus TCNJ and Russian Club were just a few from the long list of unregistered organizations Dimmig read.
