SA approves Eid funding

By Hayden Sadler

Two clubs requested status changes from the Student Association at its Senate meeting April 12, and the Muslim Student Association requested additional financial allocations for its upcoming Eid al-Fitr event.

Female Excellence in Science and Technology requested provisional club status. The club aims to provide an inclusive environment to discuss women’s workplace issues. The request received unanimous approval from the SA. 

The Real Estate Investment Club sought permanent club status. The group focuses on educating interested members about investing in realty. At general meetings, the club runs simulations on property investments and analyzes properties. The Real Estate Investment Club was unanimously approved for permanent club status.

MSA was in attendance regarding additional allocations for the upcoming Eid event. Although the initial request was for $1,500, the MSA wanted to increase the allocations to $2,000 as a result of other sources denying funding. With only $1,500, the club may have to cut certain aspects of the event, such as the DJ. Settling for $1,500, the request was unanimously approved. 

The Senate also had various announcements to share. Senator Endalkachew Abebe announced his registration for the Cardinal Sustainability Summit today, April 21. 

Although brief, the Senate meeting saw the approval of two club status requests as well as the MSA’s request for additional funding.
