Division under Campus Recreation. I foresee more attention to the
needs/wants of the students in regards to the management of the BFC
in the future. If anyone on SGA has ideas or concerns, please contact
Andrea Battaglia.
b. There are other significant budget cuts across campus. Each
department is charged with determining how to best cut their budget,
but some things may affect students – such as student worker hours.
Many of you have probably heard about the Library cutting hours. I
have not heard anything “official,” but I have also heard about those
cuts.
c. We are planning (and waiting approval) for no price increase in
Housing prices for the upcoming 2014-2015 year. This is the first
time in at least 8 years that there will be zero increase. I do not have
any information about meal prices as of yet.
d. Housing exemptions going forward, will be tightened for Drury
freshmen and sophomores. Drury recognizes the value of a
residential campus to the college experience and is an important part
of what the “Drury Experience” is all about. It will be expected that all
freshmen and sophomores to live on campus, with few exemptions.
