Senate favors more fitness options in dorms

Senate allocated money for renovations to the dorms’ exercise equipment and discussed amendments to the constitution at the meeting Monday.

Senate allocated $33,000 for renovations to the fitness equipment in the residence halls.  Prior to the allocation, Dr. Rhine, Vice President of Enrollment Management and Student Services, said there was $172, 290 available in the student activity fee reserve account

T. J. Thomson, treasurer, said that Senate has $13,018 in un-allocated funds in its combined accounts.

The club MAPS was disbanded due to its members’ absences from CAB meetings, so the club’s funds, $1,000, were returned to Senate.

Senate allocated $100 for refreshments at the club budget hearings.

Clubs’ budget hearings are scheduled for March 15 and 16, if the clubs requested more than $1,000, and March 22 and 23, if the clubs requested less than $1,000. Budget appeals are April 5.

The executive board and senators read and approved the new amendments to the Senate constitution. They discussed whether all amendments should be included on the ballots during Senate elections, regardless of their importance and length.

The decision on whether to include all amendments on ballots was tabled till the next Senate meeting.
