Due in part to stricter standards for funding requests, the Undergraduate Association Finance Board gave out much less money to student groups than it has in the past. Student groups received $93,697, about $16,000 less than the UA authorized Finboard to allocate. Also, a recent Senate bill that would route unspent UA money into Finboard’s account was tabled in October over concerns about its constitutionality.
