More funds for Grad Week were among the several bills passed by Franciscan University Student Government during its formal meeting April 24.
Spring Bill 79 allocated an additional $3,000 to Student Government for Grad Week expenses. According to the bill, Student Government had originally allocated itself $10,000 for the Grad Week events but was forced to cut down to $7,000 to pass the entire budget. The new allocation would bring the overall Grad Week budget to $10,000.
Student Government allocated $1,500 in Spring Bill 81 to purchase a Chesterton Reading Bench for campus. The bench will also feature a reading box to store books and will be installed by the end of summer, the bill said.
The Knights of the Holy Queen received $250 from Spring Bill 82 to buy pizza for its Rosary Crusade event. The pizza would be for a showing of “Power in My Hands,” a feature film presented by the Rosary Evangelization Apostolate.
Also during the meeting:
Spring Bill 76 allocated $150 to fund shuttles from campus to the First Friday on Fourth event on May 3.
Spring Bill 77 gave Student Government $35.99 to purchase a battery charger set to replace one that was lost earlier this semester.
Spring Bill 75 reimbursed Internal Auditor Alex McKenna $30 for his purchase of doughnuts for Student Government’s Hilltop Cleanup.
Spring Bill 80 recognized the Militia Immaculate as a Student Government club.
Student Government will meet for the last time on May 1 at 11 a.m. in the St. Leo Room.
