Fifteen student organizations divided up more than $9,000 for fall semester activities following the Student Government Organization (SGA) meeting on Friday, Oct. 1st.

Throughout the meeting, SGA members discussed how much money would be given out to each organization. The guidelines and procedures for delegating the distribution of money were similar to those in previous years.

Unlike last year’s budget, there was more money to be divided up amongst the organizations. This year there was $12,000 to be given out compared to last year’s $ 7,000. The total amount requested by the organizations was $9,255, and that was the total amount granted, leaving $2,745 for the spring semester.

There are many different steps that are involved in deciding which student organizations are approved and which organizations receive the most money. Students wanting to create their own organization or club must first get a packet containing a registration form from the Student Organization Funding Committee (SOFC). Then students must fill this out and return it to SOFC. The deadline for this was Sept. 17. Afterwards, organizations had to have their proposals to the Student Activities Office by Sept. 24 and make an appointment for a SOFC hearing. Organizations should have made an appointment on the 27, 28, or 29 of September to have a committee review of the proposals. During this, the clubs present why they requested the amount of money they needed. On Thursday, Oct. 1, there was a general assembly meeting and the budget was approved by the SOFC, but Jason Bozzone, the director of student activities, approved the final budget, on Oct. 4.

The veteran student organizations include finance association, history/political science club, Ethnic Student Alliance (ESA), Latinos Unidos, psychology club, roller hockey club, search club, ski club and sociology club. Added to the roster this year were the college Republicans, Habitat for Humanity, the Honors Club, religious studies and Up ‘Til Dawn. Each organization received their requested amount of money this year, with Up ‘Til Dawn receiving the most, $2,000.

Many organizations received a greater amount of funding than what was given to them in previous years. Last year, the Finance club was granted $60 and this year they were given an amount of $370; however, due to the amount of new organizations that were formed this year, not all existing clubs were given more money.

Latinos Unidos was given $1,000 last year and this year they were only given $250. The new organizations were given the following amounts of funding money: College Republicans received $200, Habitat for Humanity was given $250, Honor Club received $600, Religious Studies was given $100 and SALSSA received $450.

“Although we would have liked to give everyone the money they requested, there were 15 new organizations to give money to and limitations were set. I would like to thank all the organizations for making the SOFC process run smoothly. Hopefully everyone knows the process to request money from SGA next year.” Claudia Sciandra, a junior accounting and finance major and the treasurer of SGA, said.
