SGA Funding Requests Provides Culture Traditions Back to BSU

Each semester, the Student Government Association (SGA) has an allotted budget for student organizations and clubs to request funding for campus-wide events. 

On Tuesday, March 22, La Sociedad Latinx got a funding request approved to use for an event.

La Sociedad Latinx will be hosting an event called Noche Loca. This event will be held on April 7 at 6:30 p.m.. This event will have authentic food from a Guatemalan restaurant and authentic forms of Latinx Dance as well. Everybody is welcome and encouraged to attend this event.

“Like many other organizations we have not been able to hold an event on campus due to covid. Before Covid, I was a freshman, they used to hold this event every year,” said Paul Camacho, the president of the organization.

Camacho stated this event was supposed to happen just after spring break in 2019, but was canceled due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“When I was a freshmen, Noche Loca was supposed to happen when I got back from spring break. … We are just happy to bring it back,” said Camacho.

There are many events that, prior to Covid, happened annually, but due to Covid, were unable to make a return. It is exciting to be able to take one more step into “normalcy” and assist in building community by starting to bring back events that were here prior to Covid.

In addition, at this meeting, the African Student Association got a funding request approved for their Blueprint Fashion Show. It will be held April 16 in the RSU Large Ballroom from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m..
