Spending restrictions on horizon for clubs

CAB Adviser and Student Activities Coordinator Megan Northrup announced that CAB will be restricted on spending.

An email from the System Office, the office which presides over the Nebraska State College System, stated the colleges will be under an indefinite “halt” regarding certain expenses.

Club purchases through places like Amazon will have to be purchased for the clubs and reimbursed through the CAB account. Northrup said that monies for trips are also under this halt, and when more information becomes available decisions can be made.

“With trips and different things, because of this email we received, we just need a lot more information from [the System Office] before we can give you guys more information,” Northrup said. “But trips and different scenarios we might have to work together and figure out this potential change.”

Northrup also announced a leadership training scheduled for Saturday, November 3, from 1-4 p.m. The training, which Northrup called a  “hands-on workshop,” is open to all clubs and students and will provide opportunities for club members to work together. A free booklet and certificate will be provided. If club members and students are interested in attending, contact Northrup.

Student Trustee Dawson Brunswick, 20, senior of McCook, reported, Monday, the Chadron State Foundation received a $500,000 grant from the Sunderland Foundation to go towards the renovation of the Math and Science building.

CAB Chair Kimberly Hernandez, 21, senior of Scottsbluff, announced a haunted house will be held on Saturday. The event, called Bloodcurling Brooks, will be held in Brooks Hall from 7 p.m. to midnight. Hernandez said CAB is still looking for volunteers for the event, with varying times available for students to offer their time.

“The time commitment varies from 5 p.m. to midnight. If we have enough volunteers we’ll be able to switch out with each other, so everyone won’t have to stay all night. It would be super cool if we had a lot of volunteers to make this a successful haunted house that we could have for the first time in a while,” Hernandez said.

Decorating will start this week at 3 p.m. and will be held every day leading up to the event. If students wish to be added to the volunteer list they can speak to Hernandez or any member of the CAB executive board.

Vice Chair of Finances Isaac Langan announced that clubs have spent $19,196. Allocated funds that have not been spent total $115,959.99.

Vice Chair of Programming Hannah Fessler reported Sunday’s Free Movie Night had a “really good turnout” with 234 people attending.

Painting in the Library will be held from 2-5 p.m. on Thursday in the library.

The next Free Bowling Night will be held from 6-9 p.m., Sunday, November 11, at Hilltop Lanes.
