The first Edinboro University Student Government Association (EUSGA) meeting post-break was called to order at 6:01 p.m. on March 19. Macala Leigey represented Chi Alpha, petitioning EUSGA for $10,000 to cover the club’s upcoming Reach Concert featuring nationally renowned Christian hip-hop and spoken word artists Propaganda and Egypt Speaks, as well as a local artist named Brandon Fox Worship. 

Chi Alpha was approved for the funds, which will go towards the lighting and sound set-up, security, and the expenses of the performers. Leigey stated the concert would bring much-needed positive publicity to Edinboro University by attracting potential applicants from all demographics, citing the university’s declining enrollment rate and dubbing the concert “a chance for community outreach and involvement.” 

Tickets went live on March 21 and are available at edinborotickets.com. Prices are as follows: $15 for Edinboro University students with valid ID, $20 for the general public, and $30 for a ticket and a pass to participate in the meet-and-greet before the show. 

EU’s Identity Club also presented, asking EUSGA for $1,385.22 for 7 members of the club to attend the 23rd Annual Northeast LQBT Conference at Rutgers University. Taylor Liddane, treasurer for EU Identity, said the conference encourages the exchange of “intersectional narratives between individuals” and highlighted the opportunity for club members to network with other LGBTQA+ organizations in the region. EUSGA approved the requested amount, which will cover the conference registration fees, hotel costs, and a portion of the gas needed to get to New Jersey. Liddane hopes to “bring back new knowledge to share with Edinboro students.” Edinboro Identity Club meets in Hendricks Hall at 8:45 p.m. on Monday evenings. 

Monday night’s meeting adjourned at 6:44 p.m.

To join EUSGA, attend a Monday night meeting at 6 p.m. in Pogue 143.
