The EUSGA met this past Monday to add two members to the group and to hear proposals from four clubs.

First up was the Triathlon Club. Their representative, Brianne Vogan, made a proposal asking for five triathlon bikes in order to train for nationals. The request for the bikes, equipment, and registration, was $5,900. The club has a total of seven members, and with three members going on to nationals, Vogan hopes to take five with them in September.

The group motioned in high favor of Vogan’s request.

Next up, the ROTC requested funds for a trip to Gettysburg. Eighteen senior staff members are heading to Gettysburg for a ROTC curriculum requirement. The members will meet up with members from Gannon University, expanding on their networking, political perspective, and history of the generals that fought in the Battle of Gettysburg.

The EUSGA motioned in favor of their request for funds totaling $3,600 for hotel and more for the cadets.

The third request for funds was from the Drawing and Painting Club, so they could take a trip to Chicago from April 1 to 3. This trip would allow the club to visit graduate programs and tour the Art Institute of Chicago with EUP alumna, Katie Molinengo. Also on their agenda is a visit to Hyde Park Art Center, the Museum of Contemporary Art, and tour with local artist, Gaia Nardie.

The proposal, which would allow 14 members of the club to go, totaled $2,597.92.

The EUSGA denied this requests of funds.

The final proposal, by Ben Wilson, was done by video since he was unable to attend, due to working on a thesis film. Wilson asked for $837.96. This request was for Wilson to attend the Atlanta Film Festival from April 6-10, where his film, “Cole the Robot,” would be screened. The festival draws in a crowd of around 25,000 and his film would also help promote Edinboro University.

The EUSGA voted to grant Wilson’s requests for funds to cover his airfare, hotel and rental car.
