Mike Freeman: Overview of Thank-a-Thon
FOOTBALL, ROWING, BASEBALL HELPED OUT TREMENDOUSLY and SAAC would like to thank you!
Think about Thank-A-Thon becoming a FALL and SPRING event for next year.
Callie Boyd: Budget cuts and opportunities
Another Budget Cut of 41.2 Million dollars starting Fall Semester might go into play (coming from out state governor)(This is NOT 100% yet I don't think)
$200 dollar increase will be given to each students tuition start in the Fall and the students will then have a cap on student tuition, meaning it will be on set price and cannot go up and down. (This is NOT into play yet, but an idea from the board)
Please E-Mail Callie Boyd with ANY personal opinions on how you think Clemson could budget better, or any personal ideas your have that helps you budget and share them with her.
The Board is thinking about Revising Resident Visitation Policy to 3am-8am.
Becky Bowman: Update on Student-Athlete Opportunity Fund
The Student opportunity fund that we were pushing CANNOT happen anymore, being that we as Clemson are going through these budget cuts.
Although, ALL incoming freshman WILL receive a full scholarship their first summer session before FALL semester starts, to help Clemson compete with other schools, and also give the Freshman a great Kick Start on their college experience with their grades and etc. (This was an Administrative Decision)
