Senate allocates clubs’ recommended fall budget

Senate allocated $215,840.93 to clubs for next semester’s budgets. The money for the clubs’ budgets will come from the Student Senate budget in the fall; any unallocated funds from this semester will roll over to next year’s budget.
Senate had $142,850.30 in unallocated funds at the beginning of the meeting Monday.
Senate allocated $200 for graduation stoles for Student Senate seniors. Those who were a part of Senate, the CAB executive board, or the Court at one point in their college career will receive a stole to wear at graduation.
Senate also allocated $1,000 for graduation cords for students who were actively involved in clubs. There will be cardinal red with white and black cords for students who served on a club executive board and cardinal red with black for students who were actively involved in a club.
Each individual student will be responsible for picking up his or her cord from the Senate office, open noon-5 p.m. Monday-Friday, during finals week.
Senate allocated $1,760 for the Health and Well-being event next semester. The event will be during the Week of Welcome and will feature an inflatable for students to go through.
