Estimated number of students impacted:_35,000
Explain:As previous experiences have shown, this is beneficial not only to MSA but the entire student body.  This is the convention where we share ideas about stripes, food pantries, clothing donation centers and many other programs.  We learn how to better our campus and get to share ideas with the other schools to perfect their services as well.


Would you be available to come speak to MSA Budget Committee about this request? [Committee meets at 7 PM on Tuesdays in the Student Center] [X ] yes      [  ] no

Note: Availability to speak with Budget Committee is not a requirement to receive funding

I recognize that non-compliance with MSA Bylaws may forfeit any approved funds.
