Requests for funding by the Student Activity Fee Committee must be received six weeks before an event and two weeks before a monthly meeting.
The next meeting to decide on proposals is 3 p.m. Nov. 7 in the employee lounge of Loftin Student Center.
Student organizations and clubs can apply online at https://orgsync.com/25432/files/155992/show.
In the Oct. 3 meeting, the Student Activity Fee Committee discussed two requests totaling $2,252.21 for men’s and women’s basketball teams.
The teams applied for two trips to play out-of-town games. They requested $1,178.87 for a shared charter bus to travel to Uvalde for an Oct. 16 game, and $1,073.34 for a shared charter bus for the Oct. 30 game in Victoria.
The events were tabled at the meeting because a list of team rosters or advisers was not provided, said Jacob-Aiden Martinez, coordinator of student success.
Students who qualify for funding must have a 2.0 GPA or higher and be registered in at least six semester hours at this college.
Rodriguez sent in the rosters Oct. 8, and the committee approved the trips via an email vote. Emma Mendiola, dean of student services, said voting via proxy, or email in this case, was acceptable because committee members still weighed in.
Nine women and 10 men from each team are attending both games. Rodriguez, and computer science Professor Steve Ochoa are the advisers for the games.
The men’s and women’s basketball teams of this college were cut because of lack of funding in spring 2011, so the teams had to apply as a club.
Richard Farias, director of student life, who led the meeting in Mendiola’s absence, discussed a possible $121,319 project to divide the craft room into three smaller sections: desks for clubs, a conference room and a meeting area.
Farias will present a proposal for the next meeting with a finalized budget, Farias said.
