Society gets funds
The St. Thomas Magic: The Gathering Society was approved for $350 to balance their budget this year.
A request from any club or society would normally be brought to the finance committee for approval, but that committee is not scheduled to meet before the end of the semester, and the society requested this issue be dealt with before the winter break.
Emily Sheen, vice president of finance, said this group is active within the STU community and work to introduce new people to the game.
“I’d say they’re the most active club or society on campus,” said Ryan Smith, chair of the STUSU.
Almost $500 raised for Philippines
Campus minister Janice Ryan raised $424 for the Red Cross Haiyan Relief Fund during their bake sale last Thursday in JDH. This will be matched by the government to make a total of $848 donated.
Ryan hopes to raise $76 more to make it an even $500. She has a coin collector outside of her office in GMH 203 for anyone who would like to donate to the cause.
STUSU donates to Movember
The St. Thomas student union is donating $300 from its charitable assistance budget to the Movember campaign through the STUSU page.
This leaves $2,400 left in the budget for future charities the STUSU may want to donate to.
The Movemeber Gala was also held on Saturday at Nicky Zees. About 35 people attended the gala.
