Dance crew on its way to the College

The third runner-up of “America’s Best Dance Crew,” Phunk Phenomenon, will be coming to the College for a dance show hosted by the College Union Board. CUB was allocated $10,957.52 last Wednesday, Oct. 16 by the Student Finance Board to host this event co-sponsored by Lion Latenight.

Phunk Phenomenon will entertain with creative urban dance moves highlighted by breakdancing, following an opening act by Synergy. The show will take place in the Brower Student Center on a date that has not yet been set. Admission will be free.

SFB had concerns over the increase in food quantity compared to previous years, but ultimately decided to allot funding for the event for $1,571 with the stipulation to charge $3 per non-student. Student tickets will be free.

The rest of SFB’s weekly meeting was spent hearing new club requests for eligibility of SFB funding.

The Public Health Communication club impressed  SFB with the extensive programming they have already achieved without SFB funding.

“I’m thoroughly impressed by the things they’ve accomplished without funding,” said administrative director Sara Stammer.

“That was the most impressive club request I’ve ever seen,” programming director Brian Green said in agreement. He proceeded to implement a motion to pick up the club, which passed by a unanimous vote.

SFB picked up several more clubs, including TCNJ Saathiya, the Chinese Students Association, Off Campus Student Organization, She’s The First*{TCNJ} and TCNJ Secular Student Alliance.

Net Impact was not picked up as an SFB recognized club by just one vote.

“I love their mission but they don’t have a sense of what SFB does,” sophomore representative Tom Athan said, explaining that SFB’s job is to allocate money that benefits the student body as a whole, not the local communities.

The majority of members agreed with Athan, voting to not back the club.
