SA approves $1.5K in funds for BSU

By Northern Star staff

The Black Student Union was awarded $1,575 in supplemental funding Sunday to cover costs for its members to attend a two-day conference.

The conference will be held Dec. 4 to Dec. 5 at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign by the Central Black Student Union. BSU was originally approved for supplemental funding to attend the National Black Student Union Conference, but several members and the organization’s adviser could not attend, said BSU President Timi Adeboje.

Adeboje said the amount originally awarded to send five members to the National Black Student Union Conference would cover expenses for 20 members to attend the conference at the University of Illinois.
