Passed

  • The senate heard and passed a proposal from sophomore Jennifer Essig, Associated Students Spirit Board chair, who requested $626 to cover expenses for the Dorm Champions’ T-shirt fund. Essig also requested to reallocate $475 from the APU vs. Biola Intramural soccer tournament fund into the T-shirt budget. Additionally, Essig requested $3,700 to bring the In-N-Out cookout truck for the dorm championship party. Senators believed it would help promote Dorm Champions by creating an incentive for the different halls to compete. Both proposals were passed.
     
  • Senators heard and unanimously approved a proposal from senior Amanda Tegtmeier, Social Board chair, who requested $1,500 to cover additional facilities expenses for Mock Rock, which is taking place this Friday. Tegtmeier also requested to reallocate $50 in her supplies fund to a security fund. The requested funding would go toward facilities expenses for the overflow location at Crowell Hall.  
     
  • Senators unanimously passed a proposal requesting $399.40 to fund #coffeetime 2.0, a coffee-tasting event designed to expose students to gourmet coffee. Senators agreed that the event, which was held successfully once earlier this semester, was a good idea and expressed their support.
     
  • The senate unanimously approved a request for $1,630 to fund the on-campus premiere of the student film “Summer.” Senators were supportive, as many Biola students have taken part in the film project and are excited to see the end result.
     
  • The senate approved a proposal requesting $500 for the Bluff barbecue later this semester. Senators agreed that the barbecues fostered community growth.
     
  • The senate also approved a request for $1,442 to fund Heat of the Night, an annual event put on by Heat floor in Hart Hall. Senators said they heard positive feedback about the event from residents.
     
  • A proposal requesting $344.54 for a grill for Hope South was passed. Senators said that the grill would last for many years and that funding its purchase was essentially paying for the events that will use the barbecues.
     
  • The senate passed a proposal requesting $150 to help fund a political science speaking event, which will offer chapel credit. Sophomore Beatriz Delgadillo, Alpha East senator, said the event was a good way to present political science to Biola.
     
  • Senators approved a proposal requesting $1,150 to help fund AS Serve Day, which is taking place on April 28. The funds will go toward bus rental, marketing, T-shirts, meals and various supplies.

    “I love that they’re offering chapel credits and obviously it’s a good idea to serve,” said junior Mollie McSweeney, Hope North senator. “There’s a lot of good things about it.”

Denied

  • Senators discussed a proposal requesting $2,000 to help fund production of the student film “Upon My Honor.” Because the film still needs $4,000, senators expressed concern about whether the remaining money would be funded, ultimately voting to deny it on the grounds that they were not comfortable with how uncertain the project was.

Other business

  • Senior Alison Bognuda announced Sexual Assault Awareness week, beginning next Monday, April 23.
