Franciscan University Student Government allocated itself $800 to fund its SG on the Hill events for the remainder of the semester during its meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 10.
Fall Bill 39 allocated the large sum to Student Government for the purchase of food for the weekly “SG on the Hill” events. According to the bill, the events are to bring Student Government in contact with the student body to take a different survey each week, and having food will incentivize them to take the surveys.
The events will be held each Monday for the rest of the semester, said President Gabe Gessler, and Student Government usually spends $100 per week to buy cookies and doughnuts for the event. The bill passed without objection.
Fall Bill 37 allocated $75 to the Red Cross Club for their Oct. 17 blood drive. The money would be used to buy snacks for the anticipated 50 donors, according to the bill, which passed unanimously.
The third bill passed, Fall Bill 38, allocated $20 to Students for Life for the printing of business cards. Club president Cassidy Roderick said that about 500 would be printed to be used as a form of evangelization. The bill passed without objection.
Also during the meeting:
Student Government elected junior Anne Sweeney, a theology major, and senior Anna-Maria King, an international business major, by secret ballot to fill vacancies left by the resignations of former Sens. Daniel McNichol and Jacob Watson.
Treasure Kelsey Scott-Avery announced the contingency fund was at $27,241.66
Executive Assistant Alex McKenna said 50-60 people took advantage of shuttles to First Friday on Fourth that were provided by Student Government.
