The annual “Copa Night” is ready to go after receiving funding from the Student Finance Board at their weekly board meeting on Wednesday, March 26.

Union Latina was allocated $3,445 to host this event in the name of celebrating Latino Awareness throughout the campus community.

It will include a live performing band presenting traditional Latino music to allow students to experience the culture. It is scheduled to be held on Thursday, April 24.

In addition, the month of April will kick off with a series of activies that recognize leaders and highlight leadership potentional on campus after the Leadership Development Program was funded to host its annual LEADWeek.

Originally requesting a speaker for $3,510, SFB tabled the event as they felt it was too expensive.

However, LDP was able to find a cheaper motivational speaker and was funded with $2,515 over an email vote.

The activies are scheduled to be held during the week of April 7.

The final request was presented by the Women’s Center for their annual “Take Back the Night” event.

SFB fully funded the group with $2,900 to bring Crystal Leigh Endsley to campus for the event. Endsley has had a credible reputation in the field of women’s studies and has earned several honorable mentions and made other “Take the Back the Night” appearances.

It will be held on Thursday, April 17, at 6 p.m. outside of the AIMM building and will include a walk around Metzger Drive.

*Even though SFB agrees to finance certain events, there is no guarantee these events will take place. The approval only makes the funds available.
