Options for the lecture include Ross Matthews, American television personality; Carly, Chris and Jessimae, personalities from Guy Code/Girl Code; Rob Delaney, comedian; and Justin Willman, host of Cupcake Wars and Halloween Wars.

Chabad also presented to SFB again for its Chanukah Festival and received $4,794.90 in funding. After being tabled last week due to requests for unnecessary expenses that didn’t relate to the theme of the event, Chabad came back with new plans.

In an effort to celebrate and learn about the Jewish holiday of Chanukah, Chabad will be providing menorah kits, holiday crafts, air brush T-shirts and traditional food.

In addition, they will have five actors from Comedy-Sportz Entertainment. The event will take place in the Brower Student Center on Monday, Dec. 2 at 5:30 p.m.

SFB also allocated $4,000 to INK for their Master Series to present A.M. Homes. This series will provide an opportunity for creative writers and readers to meet author, journalist and television writer A.M. Homes.

The official date has not yet been set, but the event is scheduled to take place during the week of February 24 in the Library Auditorium.

Finally, the Class of 2014 was funded for $300 to host a Real Life Cooking Series called “Holiday Treats.”
