In preparation for the upcoming Greek Week, the Inter-Greek Council was allocated $2,200 to bring a stage and equipment to campus by the Student Finance Board during their weekly meeting on Wednesday, April 2. The equipment will be used to host the annual Greek Week Airband.
Airband highlights the lip sync and dance talents of groups in the Greek community in the event that draws crowds outside of Greek life. The event is scheduled to be held in the Brower Student Center on Friday, April 18.
The second highest request came from the Black Student Union, hoping to host a roller-skating night for $1,910. However, as SFB typically doesn’t fund costs for admission on trips and only provides funds for transportation, BSU was allocated $910 for two buses that hold 50 people each.
The trip will take place at the Millennium Skate World at 9 p.m. on Thursday, April 17.
Following, the Pre-Dental Club was funded with $643 in effort to spread Oral Cancer Awareness. The money will be used to provide toothbrushes, toothpaste, dental floss picks, ChapStick and oral analgesic tubes during their awareness campaign on Wednesday, April 23, in the Brower Student Center.
In addition, Voice of Hope was fully funded with $250 to host its annual Voice of Hope Spring Concert, in which they will perform in the Education Building on Saturday, May 3.
Finally, the Senior Class Council was funded to host a cooking class to prepare students for post-graduate life by teaching them how to cook healthy meals on a budget. This event was funded for $300 to bring Chef Ott to campus on Thursday, April 10.
