The SGA awarded $775 to Alpha Phi Alpha to fund a non-alcohol party Oct. 3 in the Main Lounge.
A fraternity representative made the request at the meeting held Monday night and noted the proceeds would be donated for breast cancer research.
SGA Treasurer Ashley Jefferson explained that many clubs and organizations on campus such as DOVE (Division of Volunteer Efforts) ask the SGA to co-sponsor events for them throughout the year. According to Jefferson, this year the SGA has been allotted $23,000 to spend on these co-sponsorships and that $2,114 has already been used, leaving a total of $20,886.
Prior to the vote, members of the Executive Board were introduced while several new SGA members were sworn in. Following this, SGA President Joe Donato gave the new inductees a speech praising them as “the best of the best.” He urged them to be exemplary students at Seton Hall University and encouraged them to be responsible servant leaders.
