Student Senate to review budget cuts

Debby Hernandez, Administration Editor

Student Senate will be reviewing its budget cuts at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Arcola/Tuscola Room in the Martin Luther King Jr. University Union.

Student Body President Reginald Thedford said senators will need to review budget distribution within the senate and what areas will be cut.

“Committees will be limited on what they can do without many funds,” Thedford said. “It will test our creativity for the year.”

Thedford said the senate will also discuss student representation in the Council on University Planning and Budget.

He said he will present a proposal to make graduate students eligible for the position.

“I will have to see how senators feel about this,” Thedford said.

In the past, only undergraduate students have been eligible to be a student representative in the council.

The senate will also vote for the approval of Homecoming events such as “Family Fun Night,” “Yell like Hell” and “Sidewalk Party” in its next meeting.
