Student Government to discuss funding

Zach Clemens

Student Government will discuss a number of funding bills and possibly seat a new senator at its weekly Senate meeting Wednesday night.

Student Government will discuss and vote on a bill to fund the event management club. The group is hosting a conference for students with guest speakers focusing on professional development. The bill calls for allocating $5,000 to fund this conference.

The Senate will debate a bill to fund the Stupka Symposium. This event will showcase undergraduate student research work pertaining to biochemistry, biophysics and molecular biology. If the bill passes, it would allocate $3,250 toward the symposium.

Christopher Perez, senior in world languages and cultures, hopes to be confirmed as a united off-campus residents senator.

A number of funding bills will go through their first read for different clubs, including the rodeo club, the GENRE club and table tennis club.
