Ashley Charnley | Thursday, November 20, 2008

Mo Weaver, Board of Governance (BOG) treasurer, announced that allotments were decided and handed out to clubs and organizations at Saint Mary’s during Wednesday’s meeting.

The Executive Board worked late into the night in order to choose how the allotments would be given out, BOG advisor Patrick Daniel, Director of Student Involvement said.

“They took a lot of time to make sure that those that should have received money received money,” Daniel said.

The Executive Board will be meeting with the treasurers of each group receiving money in order to explain how the allotments work.

BOG also discussed an open forum being held today in order to address concerns about food service. The forum will be held in the Student Center Lounge at 5 p.m., Catherine Meadors, Student Services commissioner said.

Barry Bowles, General Manager of Sodexo at the College, will be attending the forum in order to take questions and suggestions from the students about the food in the dining hall.
