What we do!

Finance Committee is a group of 11 students that decide how we should allocate the $44/semester Student Activity Fee. The committee meets once per week for 2+ hours to review funding requests, meet with student organizations, amend funding bills, and vote on legislation. Committee members are selected at the beginning of every school year, so come back in August if you’re interested in serving on the committee!
