Student Athletic Fee
« on: April 25, 2018, 10:01:17 AM »
This thought came to me... I noticed the Student Government election is going on right now and the SGA has a role in approving the athletic fee each year. The fee is $25 per student per quarter so that comes out to over $1.7M each year (assuming 23k students for three quarters). I wonder if students running for SGA come out against the athletic fee until changes are made would gain any traction in the election / make life really messy and difficult for JLP.

I'm sure the fee would still be approved even without the approval of the SGA but it would send a strong message. Here's the specific language: "The fee was approved by the Board of Trustees with support from Student Government Association and leaders of many of the other large student organizations on campus.​"

Great point. I'm sure the AD office uses that tax to maintain themselves in the 'black'

It's a good deal if it covers parking at Wintrust for $5.

But, to go to all events on campus for free and use of the Meyer Center, it's worth it.
