Sonia Rao | Wednesday, January 24, 2007
Members of the Council of Representatives (COR) reviewed the 2006-07 reallocation budget in a brief meeting Tuesday night in LaFortune.
The total budget of $41,037 was allocated to various organizations, including a $3,000 reimbursement of the technology fund.
“[The reallocation] is really a spending review and not a reallocation per se,” said Student Union assistant treasurer Kadeja Gaines, who added that the treasury reserves the right to take money away from organizations that have not been spending requested funds.
In the case of this semester, $3,000 was reallocated from the Class of 2007 funds to Senior Week, Gaines said. In addition, Judicial Council received $1,000, student government $5,000 and Student Union Board $21,018.90.
In other COR news:
The Class Councils of 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 were the collective “Organization Spotlight” for the week. Each class president took a turn describing recent and upcoming events for his/her class, including new freshman T-shirts, a service opportunity at a local soup kitchen for sophomores, care packages for transfer students, the junior class’ Holy Half Marathon and future alumni events for seniors. Most notably was the recent Freshman Class Mass, which drew participation from 600 class members.
