UPUA Approves Funding For Two Events In First Meeting Of 2023

The 17th assembly of the University Park Undergraduate Association met for the first time in 2023 Wednesday night. It was a quick meeting, as just two bills were passed to provide funding for a couple of events that will occur early in the semester.

There were no special presentations at this meeting, so President Sydney Gibbard and Vice President Carter Gangl gave their reports before moving into new business.

New Business

First up was Bill #30-17, which provided funding for the 48th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Banquet. The bill would pay $775 to cover the attendance of select members from the organization to participate in the banquet.

Bill #30-17 passed unanimously.

Then, Bill #31-17 was brought up for discussion. The bill provided funding for World Cultural Week and would spend money to buy decorations, games, dinnerware, a “stuff-a-plush,” and a reservation at 3 Dots Downtown. It would cost a little under $6,000 for everything.

Bill #31-17 passed unanimously.
