The Board of Cooperative Activities elected three new Student-At-Large Representatives Thursday.

The new representatives are William Botzner, a computer science major, Philip Fonzi, an accounting major, and Erica Carnahan, a business management major.

According to Fonzi, he is looking forward to participating in Co-Op.

“I think it is going to be very exciting,” Fonzi said. “I’m really looking forward to getting more involved on campus.”
The Co-Op board also approved several First-Time Funding Requests.

Delta Zeta, a Slippery Rock Sorority, was approved for up to $210 for a Tug-of-War event.

The event, Turtle Tug, is played in teams of five over a pit of green Jell-O.

The proceeds are planned to be used to fund Delta Zeta’s Painted Turtle Camp. The camp is for children with disabilities, and provides funds for the extra care they may need.

A second First-Time Funding Request was approved for the Slippery Rock University Men’s Football Club for up to $150 for league fees.

The Football Club, which actually participates in Soccer, pays for referees and traveling costs themselves, so the funding is for league fees alone.

According to Vice President of Financial Affairs Ben Motyl, the budgetary reserves are currently at $34,584.50.

Over $140,000 will be added to the reserves in two weeks, which is from the carry-over of last year’s funds.

“The next meeting’s budgetary reserves will reflect the carry-over from last year, as well as the deductions from today’s approved funding requests,” Motyl said.
