“Basically, the process has always been the same, but we’re formalizing it and putting it in writing,” Alyssa Thomas, an SG adviser, said. “We want to make sure that process continues.”
Hassouneh said the policy gets rid of “gray area,” and that he was pleased with the overall passing of the budget.
“I’m really happy about the budget,” he said. “All in a year with no fee increases, we found a way for better funding that’s more efficient and gets out more money. We’re moving in the right direction of making sure the biggest bang for the buck is getting back to students. Stuff like Homecoming, (Campus Activity Board, University Lecture Series), USF Day ... sadly, we know those are not priorities for the University, so we’re glad we could step in and fund that.”
The budget will now be signed by Hassouneh and student body President Matt Diaz before being sent to USF President Judy Genshaft to be signed into effect.
