The University of Dayton Student Government Association passed one bill at their meeting this Sunday.
Epsilon Nu Tau, the professional entrepreneurship fraternity on campus, was granted $1,853 to cover the cost of a trip to the National Epsilon Nu Tau Conference in New Jersey. The fraternity will be sending eight members, and plans to compete in an elevator pitch competition that will be held at the conference. Twelve voting members were in favor, while one member was against the bill.
Delta Tau Delta applied for a grant to cover costs from a KanJam fundraiser that was held on March 15. The fundraiser, “KanJam for Greg” raised more than $5,000 for leukemia research. The event was featured in a Flyer News article published Thursday, March 20.
The bill was tabled to give the fraternity a chance to present its application in person at a future meeting.
Freshman Senator Elizabeth Kelsch presented information regarding student interest in extending the current hours of the Health Center to include the weekend. She said the Health Center hours are currently being discussed throughout the administration, and changes could be made as soon as fall 2014.
The voting period for the Student Government Association’s spring elections will begin April Wednesday, April 2, and will close Tuesday, April 8. The positions being voted on are listed at www.udayton.edu/students/sga/#6. New officers will be sworn in on April 13.
