One organization was zero funded and two organizations were fully funded at the Student Finance Board Meeting on Nov. 7.

The Association for Computing Machinery, which presented for its event, HackTCNJ 2019, was zero funded for promoting its event before it presented it to SFB.

HackTCNJ, also known as “the hackathon,” is an annual competition where students of design and technology fields gather for a programming competition.

“You can’t advertise before you receive SAF funds,” said Ryan Kirschner, a management major and sophomore representative and programming assistant for SFB.

Kirschner also explained that ACM has the option to go before the three-person appeals board and plead why the organization feels SFB should have funded its event, as outlined by  the SFB student organization manual.

TCNJ Musical Theatre received $1,512 for house management and ushers as part of its production of “Little Shop of Horrors,” which was funded at a previous meeting.

“This was a separate charge that we did not take into consideration,” said Alex Hanneman, a junior chemistry major and treasurer of TMT. “These are all students that do house management and ushering.”

Lion’s Eye was funded $2,000 for 350 copies of the fall edition for the campus’ literary magazine.

Lion’s Eye is published biannually and accepts poetry, photography, art and short stories for submissions.

The magazine hopes to promote campus unity, showcase student work and demonstrate student creativity and achievement, according to the proposal.

SFB will fully fund $321.25 for TCNJ Trentones’ uniforms.

All College Theatre was fully funded $375 for the rights and royalties for its spring production of “She Kills Monsters.”
