The Board of Cooperative Activities approved the new initiative request for Swim Club for up to $1,742.04.
Kaila Kramer, Swim Club President, started the club her sophomore year at Slippery Rock.
According to Kramer, the team attended the national championship competition in Atlanta, Ga.
The Swim Club placed in the top 40, and five girls and one boy were involved in the competition.
“Nationals are a way to let our hard work pay off,” Kramer said. “We practice the entire school year – both fall and spring semesters.”
Kramer said that the club also fundraises by selling Yankee Candles to get closer to their goals
The club is open to all SRU students.
The club meets and swims at the Aebersold Student Recreation Center from 8-9 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
Recreational and competitive swimmers are welcomed, and no experience is necessary.
Ben Motyl, Vice President of Financial Affairs, said the funds the Swim Club are receiving include registration for finals, as well as some transportation costs.
The Board of Cooperative Activities approved the addition, “No mandatory conferences shall be funded” to the student conference grant Thursday as well.
Motyl said that the purpose for adding the line was to ensure that conferences being funded through Co-Op are open to all students, and aren’t mandatory for specific student groups.
The budgetary reserves of Co-Op are currently at $163,814.16, which reflects Thursday’s Swim Club initiative approval.
