The Student Finance Board fully funded five events during its meeting on March 6 at 12:30 p.m.

The board fully funded Late Night Take $446.34 for its event, which is a viewing of the season premiere of the popular series, “Game of Thrones.” The money will go toward food and beverages, including pizza from Salerno’s III.

“‘Game of Thrones’ is undoubtedly the most watched TV show,” said Svanik Shirodkar, a freshman international studies major and president of LNT, while pitching the event.

The viewing is scheduled for April 14 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. in the Education Building Room 212.

The Inter-Greek Council was fully funded $4,447.57 for its second component to the “Rollin’ Latenighter,” which the College Union Board co-sponsors.

This funding will assist with decorations, snacks, a cotton candy machine and other activities, explained junior marketing major Mohammad Rahmatullah.

The “Rollin’ Latenighter” is estimated to have a 20 percent attendance rate from each Greek organization, according to the IGC. However, the event is open to all students, not just those in Greek life.  

This event will take place on March 28 in the Brower Student Center Room 100 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.

The All College Theatre was fully funded $3,113 for its annual event, “Festival of One-Act Shorts.”

This festival is comprised of short plays that students write, direct and present in a collection.

This event attracts a large audience, including College students and outside community members, according to ACT. Students can attend the event for free, but for those who are not students at the College will have to pay a $10 fee.

The festival is a two-day event that will take place on April 13 and April 14 at The Don Evans Black Box Theater in Kendall Hall.

SFB fully funded the College’s Junior Class Council $301.30 for prizes for its event, “TCNJ’s Got Talent.”

This will be the 10th edition of “TCNJ’s Got Talent,” a campus-wide event where students showcase their talents and promote unity within the College’s community, according to the council. The show will take place on April 2 in the Student Center Room 100 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Funding will go toward prizes and sound technicians. Prizes include gift cards from the Panera Bread in Campus Town, according to the council.

Justin Lewbel, a junior history and secondary education dual major and president of the council, said they have two confirmed judges and a “verbal agreement from Big Larry from Eick,” to judge the event.

SFB fully funded The Mixed Signals $5,475 for the group’s annual event, “R.O.C.K.,” which stands for Rather Outrageous Comedy Kickout.

Samantha Franz, a senior communication studies and English double major, presented for The Mixed Signals, which received $5,475 for the event. The show takes place every spring semester, and this year it will take place on April 6 from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. in Mayo Concert Hall.
