The Associated Students senate meeting this week featured four proposals, all of which will be voted upon at next week’s meeting.


Senior film major JJ Carroll opened the session with a proposal for $2,050 for the Biola Film premiere. Carroll requested that the funds go toward premiering the 12-minute movie, “Kyle and Captain Courage,” at a local theater for $1,050 in rental fees. He also proposed for $200 to purchase snacks, $100 toward a PA system and $100 for promotional posters. The premiere will feature a question-and-answer session geared toward local children, Carroll said.

“It’s going to be an open house kind of a thing,” he said.

Intramural sports coordinator Kyle Kinney also proposed for a total sum of $2,050 to create a website for online intramural registration. Currently, team captains must acquire signatures from each team member and turn the registration in face-to-face. With the new system, students who wish to play but are not on a specific team can sign up individually and be placed on a team via the website. The funds would go toward the one-time installment fee and a one-year membership with the league management web application.

Next, Hope North senator Elizabeth Britton and junior accounting major Kevin Vandekamp made a joint proposal for $2,800 for the Lower Campus Block Party. The funds would go toward buying hamburgers and other food, games, an inflatable and a snow cone machine. In addition, they would purchase sunglasses to distribute to the first 200 guests. DJ Kat Scratch — the disc jockey from both Nationball and Mock Rock — will also make an appearance.

Wrapping up the proposals, Ika Sani, a senior communication disorders and psychology major, requested $1,200 to set up the stage and equipment for a performance night. The evening will feature spoken word poetry, music and other artistic talents and will be held during Global Students Voices Week, a cultural awareness event hosted by the International Student Association.
