The landlord-tenant presentation previously planned by Edinboro University Student Government Association (EUSGA) will be on Monday, Nov. 26 at 6 p.m. in Pogue Student Center, multi-purpose room. Issues regarding lease addendums (items added to a lease) and landlords not being lenient with when students can pay with refund checks will be discussed.

The EUSGA board then asked some trivia questions and gave away water bottles if students correctly answered. Questions ranged from “What is Edinboro’s SGA budget?” (around $900,000) to “How much is the student activity fee?” ($225).” It was also during this trivia that EUSGA announced that the 2019-2020 budget process begins on  Friday, Feb. 15 at midnight, and closes on Friday, March 15 at midnight. 

Leslie Colonello then did another round of BoroSync training to show students how to access and edit their budget on the BoroSync pages. She also explained that you could upload past receipts from events in order to justify the amount of money your club is requesting. 

Lt. Eric Kraus of the Edinboro University Police attended the meeting to answer student questions on a variety of law enforcement topics, such as parking passes, traffic stops, why officers may stop you while you’re walking, the enforcement of underage drinking laws, and university policies on medical marijuana. 

Stacie Wolbert then announced that the University Safety Committee is looking for two students to serve and give input. 

The only club announcement of the night was that the theater production “Harvey” will open on Thursday, Oct. 25 at 7:30 p.m. in Diebold. The show is sponsored by the University Players and costs $3 for EU students, $5 for EU faculty/staff, seniors and other students, and $10 for general admission. 

The last event of the meeting was the induction of four new EUSGA members. Logan Watson was inducted as treasurer, Bryan Geehrer as the public relations chair, Tristan Meyers as parliamentarian and Elizabeth Stevens as secretary.
