The Undergraduate Student Government discussed its fall budget allocations for St. Thomas clubs and organizations Sunday night.
The proposed budget allocations for all clubs totaled $87,047, more than 38 percent less than the total of all budget requests received by the finance committee ($141,194).
If the proposed funding is passed, SHINE, Rock Climbing Club, Saint Paul’s Outreach, KUST, ANSA and Volunteers in Action will be among the top recipients.
In the proposed budget allocations, five clubs or organizations were denied funding. The Advertising Federation, American Marketing Association, Art Attack, Band Club and the Public Relations Student Society of America were not approved for USG funding due to various questions about their budget proposals. USG may have its final vote on the proposed allocations Sunday, Oct. 25.
“Thespians Unite!” received unanimous USG approval and is now an official university organization. The club aims to maintain a theatrical arts presence on campus after the dissolution of the university’s theater department.
The USG is forming a team to participate in the “community clean-up” event Sunday, Nov. 8. The event is sponsored by the Student Alumni Council.
