SGA Round Up March 2 2016

By: Joseph Gluck, SGA Representative

On February 17, Sarah Burnett presented a budget request for Spring Day asking for $2,750 for T-shirts and a petting zoo exhibit. The animals will be provided by Animal Adventures of Bolton, Massachusetts. The request was approved.

After, the Twilight Players presented a budget request of $900 for personal microphones for their spring musical, How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. The club mentioned that it will present an opportunity for MBI students to learn new sound board techniques, as well as the obvious benefit of audible dialog and singing. The request was approved.

Next, the Track and Field club requested $3123 to cover entry fees to meets, travel, and membership fees. The club will not be NCAA authorized until next year, and therefore cannot receive funding from the athletic department. The assembly approved $2000.

Additionally, the Auto Club was established.

On March 2, the SGA general assembly met again. Joe Cioffi presented the activities of the 10% committee, as well as several ideas for purchases. Outdoor seating, an elliptical machine for the fitness facility, and a panini machine for the hornets nest and a hot-dog roller for the dining hall. These will be owned outright by the college.

Erin Rossetti then presented the time, place, and procedure for housing selection. More information will be found on a pamphlet in your LSC mailbox.

Meisa presented a funding request for a pair of Yamaha DSR118W subwoofer speakers; the old subwoofer speakers were irreparably damaged by sustained high volume sound.  The cost of $2000 was approved.
