Student Government passes bill to fund Franciscan Film Society, plans to propose library hour extension


Student Government met Wednesday to discuss Spring Bill 14, which allocates $77 to the Franciscan Film Society for its opening meeting of the semester.

The allocated funds will be used to buy refreshments and nametags for the club members. The film club is widely successful and has had a positive impact on students and faculty by organizing showings of classic films.

Senator Sarah Rose Sperduto mentioned the importance of these funds for the club because of its upcoming projects, such as a student-produced short film. The funds would help to get more attendance at the meeting, resulting in more participation in the future.

Spring Bill 14 was passed unanimously.

Some of the topics that were mentioned in the Jan. 28 meeting have made progress. Regarding the suggestion box, the main focus will be to prioritize students’ concerns and to bring the most pressing matters into the Student Government body to be addressed during meetings.

Additionally, Student Government conducted a study of students and faculty to find out about weekday and weekend library hour use, and it was determined that extending the library’s closing hour from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. would be a good idea.

President Brian Kirby said, “We plan to make a recommendation for the library hours to Franciscan University in the near future.”
