The Student Finance Board met for the first time this semester on Wednesday, Jan. 28, to discuss proposals from two different organizations.
Chabad was he first group to come in, presenting for two events. The first was The Shabbat Experience — a weekly dinner in order for “Jewish students to fully celebrate their culture as well as share the beauty of it with the wider campus community.” The event was run throughout the fall semester.
After a vote, the SFB decided to fund the event to occur once a month, allocating Chabad funds of $2,498.
Chabad also proposed for a Passover Seder to take place on Friday, April 3, in the 1855 Room. The purpose of the event is to engage the campus community in a traditional Jewish experience for the holiday. The event was allocated funds of $1,699.99.
The Black Student Union then proposed three events. The first of which was “Kickoff,” which serves as an opening event for Black History Month. The event, which will take place on Monday, Feb. 2, in the Lions Den, was allocated funds of $1,055.
The second event was Caribbean Trio, Ewabo, which will spread culture through music. It will be on Thursday, Feb. 26, in the T/W Lounge, and was allocated funds of $1,500.
Finally, the Sankofa Ball — a closing ceremony for the month — was allocated funds of $168.58 and will take place on Saturday, Feb. 28, in the Business Building Lounge.
