On Wednesday, Feb. 5, Southern Adventist University’s student senate held the Senate project proposals, a meeting for representatives of various clubs and departments to propose projects for senate to fund.
Senior health science major Michael Baranda represented Student Missions in their request for $800 to purchase shirts. According to Baranda, the shirts would promote the Student Missions Keynote announcing global missionary opportunities.
“The Keynote event is in the style of an Apple Keynote, so we designed shirts that resemble Apple Employee t-shirts with the ‘Apple’ logo replaced with continents,” Baranda said.
According to Baranda, the Student Missions Keynote is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 14 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Student leaders, such as members of Campus Ministries and Senate, will wear the shirts on Thursday to advertise the event.
Sophomore marketing major Sarah Hagan represented the Service Department, requesting over $2,000 to purchase new chairs for Southern’s campus.
“The service department put in a request for new chairs to add on to the chairs they already have to keep up with the chairs that need to be thrown out from the wear and tear,” Hagan said.
According to Hagan, the chairs will be used for occasions such as convocations and club events. The chairs will arrive on campus within the next month.
Sophomore business management major Nadine Peteros, along with other members of senate, requested $797 for food, prizes and decorations for their own project, the Choose Green event.
“We are holding an event that will educate the student body about the recycling system and increase sustainability awareness on campus,” Peteros said. “We would like to clear up some misunderstanding about how the recycling system works.”
According to Peteros, Choose Green will take place Thursday, Feb. 20. It will begin with a booth in front of the Student Center from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. to help promote the event and encourage student participation. The main event will start at 6 p.m. and end at 7:30 p.m., though its location is yet to be determined.
