Etiquette dinners are an amazing preparation for a professional career. They have been and will be hosted for Penn State York students who are part of certain academic majors, as well as those who are part of the Graham Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership Studies.

As such, these opportunities are not open to all students. This project would allow for students who aren't already offered an etiquette dinner through another program to learn from a similar experience.
Itemized Request
700 - 2 hours of an etiquette presentation (students would be required to pay $5 to reserve their spot - which brings the request down to $575)
625 - 25 dinners each costing $25

1325 total
Itemized Matching Funds
$625 - all dinners being donated by an Advisory Board member
Open to all Campus?
This will be advertised through the SSJ, email, posters, and TVs. Additionally, faculty members will be informed and encouraged to have their students sign up for the event.

First, an Advisory Board member is donating dinners for 25 students. I would truly like to honor that commitment to our students. This is a wonderful engagement of our students by a community member.

Second, students will receive a tremendous education at this event that they really can't get anywhere else. By offering it to current juniors and seniors, we continue to build good prospects for our community by training those who will likely graduate and continue to work and live in the area.

As there will likely be more students wanting to go than we have room for, I am considering a lottery system to be able to reserve a seat at the event.
Desired Outcomes
This retention program will address a number of the topics below:

Dining Decorum
Toasting
Body Language at the Table
Difficult-to-Eat Foods
Host/Hostess and Guest Duties
Business Entertaining
The Silent Service Code
Handling Accidents
American and Continental Styles of Eating
World-Class Entertaining
Place Settings
Silverware Savvy
Dining Do's and Don'ts

Eye Contact
Listening Skills
Nonverbal Communication

Mingling
Handshaking - the Ultimate Greeting
Introducing Yourself and Others
Forms of Address
Rising to the Occasion
Remembering Names
Conversation Skills
Networking

Dress for Success
Electronic Etiquette

Comments
Thank you for your consideration!

Another possible way forward would be to have students pay $10 instead of $5 to reserve their spot. Doing so would require only a $450 commitment from SAF instead of $575.

Enhance PSY
Mandated Reporter Training is an integral part of enhancing our students' professional skills. It is required by all community agencies in human services fields and is desirable in all the fields in which students are likely to come in contact with minors. Given that many of our students work in these agencies, being a certified reporter is a huge asset. Such opportunities enhance the prestige of our students and our campus within the larger community, and, therefore, contribute to student retention and advancement. Our students are preferred in the job market because of these type of opportunities that are available to them at Penn State York.
Desired Outcomes

If fewer than 50 students attend the training, reduced funds will work. If not, it will not be a great idea to be able to offer refreshments only to a partial group of students.

Comments and questions:

Is this required for a class? This sort of training is required for students, but this specific training is not required. Twenty students from outside the class that will likely show up have shown interest.

Food would be great for an event like this.

The event is great and needed.

Do they really need to have pizza delivered?

This isn't too much for 50 people.

I'm not proposing that any more money be funneled into this event. I'm asking that the SAF Allocation Board remove the restriction on having non-students pay for entry into the event. I think that we should do a 2 week pre-sale for students to pick up their tickets so that all students have a chance to get theirs, but almost every other large scale event at the Pullo that has been SAF funded has not required 'outsiders' to pay. The very successful Esther Bauer event that was held last year was free for all who entered.

If we do charge for attendance, I fear that we will be missing out, that the theatre won't be full, and we wouldn't fully utilize the opportunity to share how great Penn State York is with the larger community.

As the Lion's Den will be shut down for part or most of the fall, and possibly for the next four semesters, we'll be having foodtrucks come to campus to augment the Bistro each day.

To kick off this initiative, and to develop student support and awareness, we'd like to host a foodtruck fair during the first week of classes. Students will be asked to pay 50¢ per item on the menu, and SAF would pay for the rest.

Campus funds will be used to support faculty and staff to do the same.

General Description

The Lee R. Glatfelter Library staff would like to promote the use of our collection, services, and space by providing all Penn State York students an opportunity to win a prize by voluntarily participating in a scavenger hunts designed to inform them about the library.

The Scavenger Hunt

An item, such as a small stuffed animal or figurine, would be placed somewhere within the library by a library staff member. Clues about where the item is located would be posted on the newly created Facebook page for the library. The first four people to correctly identify where the item is located and bring it to a staff member will receive a prize. We would do this by hiding the item in a new location each time and posting new clues on the Facebook page. After the item is located, the answer and a description of the space, service, or collection will be posted to inform all students who have liked the Facebook page. Another scavenger hunt would be held during the next month, and so on. There would be a total of 5 scavenger hunts.

Problems

The Lee R. Glatfelter Library provides all students access to over 8 million books; hundreds of DVDs; laptops; textbooks for courses at PSY; thousands of journals and magazines; hundreds of databases; and many other resources. Because this collection is continuously growing across all of Penn State’s campuses and at our own, it is a challenge to continuously keep students informed of all that the library has to offer. The library staff recently created a Facebook page as one way of communicating with students about library events, collections and services, however, the page (as of 6/20/2014) has only 8 likes. This is an obvious disproportionate number compared to the student body at Penn State York. Another challenge we face is that the library at Penn State York seems to be an underutilized public space among students, in comparison to other locations on campus. Finally, the library budget is currently limited to improving computer station space, employing staff (most are students), adding to the collection (including textbooks), and purchasing supplies for the ongoing operation of the library.

Solutions (thanks to the SAF)

If they are provided an incentive to do so, we anticipate that many more students will “Like” our Facebook page and will in turn be regularly informed about the library’s collection, services, and unique spaces. By being more informed of the advantageous services, spaces, and collection the library offers, we anticipate that they will be utilized more often among Penn State York students.
Itemized Request
1 Figurine (Nittany Lion Plush Mascot from Lions-Pride.com) = $20
5 Gift cards ($5 ea.) to the Bistro on campus = $25
2 Gift cards ($25 ea.) to Frank Movie Theater = $50
3 Gift cards ($25 ea.) to bookstore on campus = $75
5 Gift cards ($10 ea.) to the Bistro on campus = $50
5 Gift cards ($10 ea.) to Frank Movie Theater = $50

Total = $270
Itemized Matching Funds
$0
Open to all Campus?
We plan on promoting the event by posting flyers across campus, getting the event added to the Campus Updates email (multiple times), and via the television screens around campus. We also envision that as as more students “Like” our Facebook page, they will informed of scavenger hunts in the future.

Each scavenger hunt will be open to all Penn State York students. No one person will be able to win multiple prizes in a single scavenger hunt.
# of Students Benefit
20 students will potentially receive prizes. All students who “Like” the Facebook page will receive information and tips about how they can leverage the library's resources in order to support their academic success.
Enhance PSY
The scavenger hunts will be designed in a way that will require students to use critical thinking and information literacy (the ability to locate, evaluate, and use information effectively) skills to locate the hidden item. The continuous practice of these skills can be applied to improve their coursework, particularly their research related coursework. Improved coursework translates to student success and encourages retention.

The University Libraries' collection is diverse including information on topics including sustainability, diverse populations, and community service organizations. The scavenger hunt will be designed in a way to highlight these collections.
Desired Outcomes
Students will be able to identify subjects and topics represented in the University Libraries' collections. Students will be able to identify services they can utilize including research consultations with the librarian; PSY course reserves (textbooks reserved for students); interlibrary loan (borrowing materials from many other libraries outside of Penn State for free); Ask a Librarian (online chatting with a librarian 24/7), and more. Students will demonstrate the use of library tools (such as the library catalog) to locate information on a particular subject.

I personally have benefited tremendously with the tutoring training for the past year and a half that I've been tutoring. It definitively helps with the one on one tutoring and our campus as a whole.

This has been taken care of for the past several years with SAF money. On one hand, I don’t agree with this as I think this falls under operational expenses and not student activities. On the other hand, I know how valuable the NSC is to many of our students and recognize that this training would not be possible if not for this fund.

The student activity designation may not be the best label for this service.

This focuses on education in general. It also helps folks get into the aquarium since it is normally quite expensive. Once on the bus home, students will be asked to reflect on their experience and how any of it integrates with their coursework and also with their overall development - as some may have never been to Maryland.
Desired Outcomes
Students will be able to speak intelligently about their place in this world, after having visited another city, state, and the aquarium. The impact of such educational experiences is not to be underestimated.

The goal for next year is to offer students at Penn State York more of an opportunity to occupy their time during the day, at night, and on the weekends. There are tentative plans for more trips to Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington D.C., improve on the activities that we've currently offered, intramural leagues established on Fridays and/or Saturdays, more educational programming that will allow students to learn outside of the classroom, as well as more fun, social activities that our students enjoy, such as, Paintball, bowling, common hour entertainment, etc. Based upon this past year's successed with the Drive-In movies and our major speaker, we hope to build upon that with more movie nights, more speakers, and the establishment of a cultural series in the Pullo Center for our students. There will also be the creation of a leadership certificate program in the Fall for our student club leaders to develop their own leadership skills and learn about their different leadership styles.
Itemized Request
Variety of programs throughout the year ranging from social, educational, and cultural, as well as community service opportunities, leadership development opportunities, and more trips off-campus to learn about York county, PA, and our surrounding major cities = $60,000

# of Students Benefit
Entire Penn State York community
Enhance PSY
The usage of these funds is the epitome of this question. This funding goes towards creating a greater sense of community on campus through the variety of events that we are able to provide, the late night and weekend programming that we can provide to our students living in nearby apartments, as well as students that want to participate in such activities, the establishment of a leadership program at Penn State York and monthly community service trips to different areas of York. The availability of these funds will completely transform what Student Activities will look like on this campus next year.
Desired Outcomes
Students will be able to participate and partake in a vast variety of events on campus, learn new things about topics and areas that they did not know much about before, develop their leadership skills through a newly created leadership program, and promote Penn State York more in the community through a monthly Community Service initiative throughout York and York County.

They arrive on campus on that Friday before classes start (or the entire week prior), meet other students, get to know their adviser or an academic member within their major, learn about the resources that Penn State York can offer, and much more!

This year, both Orientation(s) will be bigger and better! The Orientation Leader on staff remain in the double digits for the second consecutive year. There will be summer gatherings for OL's to bond together and go through some fun leadership exercises, a 3-day training before Orientation season, a revamped International Orientation program that features more trips, food, and access to local shops and shopping centers to expose more of York and the United States to our international students. The the expected increase in International students for the Fall 2014 semester, more funding is a necessity to accommodate all the students that are anticipated. Orientation is also hoping to design, develop, and purchase shirts that students could wear on a weekly basis if they want to with top shelf designers like Under Armour or something of similar quality.

Orientation is promoted to all First-Year students, transfer students, and adult students and is a necessary part in one's college experience. Orientation is publicized to students when they get accepted to the University as a next steps process before they arrive for classes, they receive a mailer through the mail from University Park, as well as a mailer and email reminders from the Student Affairs Office about the dates of Orientation.
# of Students Benefit

Enhance PSY
Campus Life and International Student Orientation is a chance for incoming students to learn about how great Penn State York really is, the resources that the campus has to aid them in succeeding, and allowing them the opportunity to feel more comfortable before arriving on campus for classes. On the flip side, the Orientation Leaders will be aiding students through this process and will be developing multiple skills along the way such as communication and interpersonal skills throughout their own experience.
Desired Outcomes
Students should be able to identify areas on campus that can help them succeed throughout the area, point out some friendly faces either on staff or within their Pride Groups that they can turn to for assistance throughout the year or some people that they can hang out with, and the Orientation Leaders will develop a bigger sense of Penn State pride, as well as develop as Student Leaders, be a resource for these incoming students, and have fun in the process!

(We have seen this occur first hand through our OL interviews in which multiple students say that they have remained in touch with pride group members, their OL from their pride group, and especially our International OL's who went the extra mile for all of our incoming International students last summer.

The Student Activities Student Interns would work throughout the week on the promotion and marketing of Student Activities occurring on campus. These students would help staff the many events that come out of the Student Affairs Office and would aid in the creation of more late night & weekend programming that is often difficult to staff by a faculty or staff member. These students would be supervised by the Associate Director of Student Affairs and work hand-in-hand with this position to make sure that they being held accountable and fulfilling their responsibilities in their programming ideas and implementation.

The following is the anticipated break down of these interns: five (5) staffing the Game Room, three (3) assisting with intramurals and fitness classes, and two (2) assisting in the promotion and advertisement of programs on campus.
Itemized Request
These students would receive an hourly wage of $7.25/hr, unless they qualify for work study, and would work 5-10 hours each week throughout the year, which equals around $10,000.00 for ten (10) Student Activities Student Interns.

However, only the allotted amount would be selected through an interview process to gauge leadership ability, programming ability, and a desire to put forth hard-work throughout the year in aiding the vision of Student Activities at Penn State York. These positions will be advertised through flyers, SSJ, social media, and also as a work study position for those that qualify.
# of Students Benefit
10 directly; 100+ indirectly through all the programming that they'll assist with.
Enhance PSY
These positions will help the entire campus be more centered around student activities held on-campus, will help retain students by getting them involved, allow students to learn on the job in terms of public speaking, communication skills, decision making skills, leadership development, delegation skills, and so much more that comes with a student leadership position like this one.
Desired Outcomes
Students will be able to effectively complete a program with minimal assistance from their supervisor, become better student leaders on campus by learning its inner-workings, speaking with students, and being proactive in creating a fun, spirited atmosphere around campus.

The French culture class is limited to learn under the boundaries of the US. Each year, Ms. Flinchbaugh exposes her students to a slice of what French cuisine is all about. This event will expose all students to French culture specifically in terms of cuisine. The dinner is at Blue Heron, a restaurant owned by a French man of the name David LeHeron. The students will be eating a sophisticated formal dinner consisting of an appetizer, entree, and desert. The funds will help pay for the students to eat at the restaurant while at the same time teach the students about French culture.
Itemized Request
Dinner: $40 per Student
Number of Students: 15-20

Total: $600-800

Note: SAF funds will pay the total amount of students that attend or $40 per student that attends. The total above is an estimation of how much it will be. The SAF funds will only pay for STUDENTS. Therefore, if the guests are non-Penn State students, they will need to pay Suzanne Flinchbaugh the $40.

The event focuses on diversity education. It will expose all students to the French culture. The event also will enhance student retention as the event is a fun, interactive event. It will allow students to talk to other students while simultaneously learn about the French cultutre.
Desired Outcomes
The students will be able to order food of a different language, learn how to eat formally, and possibly stay at our campus since this kind of event will be a yearly event.

Why are you asking for so much per student? The restaurant is expensive.
We will fund up to 30 students but students must pay $10. Therefore, we will fund $30 per student up to 30 students.

The tape would be free for any student organization to use to hang up their flyers throughout the campus. The blue painters tape must be used when posting flyers along any painted wall throughout the University. The masking tape has proved to be effective in posting flyers along the brick wall in the Ruhl Student Community Center, as well as posting flyers on the sandwich boards that have been posted outside throughout the year.

In efforts to increase our advertising around campus, more poster printer paper will be needed to handle the increased quantity that Student Affairs is anticipating for the upcoming academic year. Also, fancier paper is needed in terms of printing posters out of athletic team rosters and other various special events where deemed necessary.

The Game Room is an area on campus that many students visit and stay for long periods of time and becomes their social hangout on campus. Since there is no true student lounge area in the student center, the Game Room fills that void. By providing updates to the Game Room on a yearly basis, we are keeping students happy that frequently visit, as well as provide new products that would entice new students to visit that might not normally do so.

Students will be able to relax before, in between, and after classes in a fun, relaxing atmosphere that they can create as their hang-out throughout the academic year and throughout their college experience.

All-U Day is a day set aside by University Park in which all of the commonwealth campuses are allotted tickets to a PSU football game. At half-time, all campuses are represented on the field with banners and is generally a good time for all campuses. Last year, we sold 40 tickets and the transportation was crucial for this event so that we did not have students driving to University Park early in the morning and then driving back to York at night after a very long day.

Potentially of teaming up with Alumni in which those seats would be sold on a per-seat basis, thus saving SAF funds while still providing this service to students.

The only thing that I can say for this portion is that this will provide safety for our students so that they do not drive themselves to and from University Park. This is a perk that the commonwealth gets to enjoy by getting an allotment of football game tickets and the transportation makes it much easier for the coordination of the event than without it.

Students will be able to boast with Penn State pride before, during, and after the game, take in a home game at legendary Beaver Stadium, and relax on the ride home when most are exhausted and tired and sleep on the way back.

The National Association for Campus Activities (NACA) Conference will be held in Lancaster, PA in October. This is a 3-day conference for anyone (student/staff) in the field of Student Activities. The days are jam-packed with educational sessions, mingling with other campuses within the surrounding states, and most importantly, seeing live college performers that students might want to bring onto campus. This conference allows students to see college acts live instead of just listening to a CD or watching a clip on YouTube. Students get to see how they are live, the energy, the emotion, how their voice sounds live, are they funny?, their set, etc. This is beneficial for any campus that books a lot of shows/programs and wants to get a sneak peak at what they're booking before they arrive on campus.

# of Students Benefit

Enhance PSY
As stated in a previous SAF proposal, NACA also allows students the opportunity to see a variety of acts, ranging from fun, social entertainers to lecturers that can dive into heavy topics such as drinking problems, drug problems, LGBT issues, Diversity issues, Women's issues, etc. NACA is a leader in higher education in providing diversified acts that can target many different areas. This is a bonus of their membership, and is definitely a bonus of attending this conference. Students can also speak with other programmers on their respective campuses and potentially bring back ideas that have worked elsewhere and try it out at Penn State York.
Desired Outcomes
Students will be able to have the knowledge to be better programmers on campus, have better critical thinking skills when things come up in an event that they might have not been able to handle before, be more aware of diversity in the higher education setting and how to promote it in their daily and programming lives, and be better communicators to see what exactly students want to see on campus.

Details
The purpose of the requested funds is to improve the quality of the International Coffee Hour and to increase attendance.

International Coffee Hour contributes significantly to Penn State's commitment to internationalize every campus community. The International Coffee Hour (ICH) is open to all students and and provides an opportunity for each student to share about his or her own culture while learning about the cultures of others. Although the name "International" confuses some students, we have been aggressively advertising that this event is open to all. In fact, to accomplish the goals of the ICH, we need all students to come.

The primary goals of the ICH are as follows:
1. Create a welcoming space for international students to meet other students.
2. Provide a regular meeting time to allow long-term friendships to be nurtured.
3. Offer opportunities for all students to not only learn about but also experience a variety of cultures. This is accomplished through interaction among students, by participating in special activities, and learning from invited guests.
4. Assist international and out-of-state students in adjusting to life in York, PA. This is accomplished by providing information about and visits from representatives of apartments, banks, etc. With the additional funds, we will prepare informative poster presentations on relevant issues such as obtaining adequate health insurance, dealing with drug and alcohol use/abuse in community life, obtaining affordable health care, etc. Topics for poster presentation will be based on needs expressed in student surveys.
Itemized Request
$300 supplies for activities (student planned games, art projects, etc. that specifically represent another culture)
$200 fee for guests who will present on specific cultures
$1200 wage for international student worker
Itemized Matching Funds
$500 for food is provided by Diversity Committee.
Open to all Campus?
International Coffee Hour (ICH) is open to all students and is advertised regularly using posters, email, and the Stall Seat Journal.
# of Students Benefit
For the 2013-2014 year, 20 - 55 students have attended each session. Attendance is much higher and includes more local students when special activities are planned. We believe attendance will be higher if we can provide richer, more strategically planned coffee hour sessions. Past attendance sheets are available for inspection upon request.
Enhance PSY
Diversity Education: The International Coffee Hour provides a unique hands-on opportunity for all students to learn about cultures and develop long-term, meaningful relationships across cultural boundaries because it is a weekly event. Activities in the past have included American themes such as pumpkin carving and cross cultural themes such as Indian Rangoli. The variety is exciting and students are eager to plan and lead weekly activities. Volunteers are already in line for next year to expand the number of cultures represented in planned activities.

Sustainability: This high level of student engagement makes this a sustainable activity. Students value the opportunity to share about their cultures and learn about new ones. They will gather if there is nothing more than a cup of coffee available. However, funds are essential to providing supplies for memorable, interactive meetings.

Increasing enrollment: We have only a minor influence, but as our international students interact in the community, people do become aware that this is a welcoming place to study. For example, about 40 of our international students attended a community event in January. This provided a wonderful opportunity for them to meet families from their culture living in the York community. After that evening, two adults from the York area called me to talk about enrolling at Penn State.

Student learning: Although the ICH is viewed as a social activity, it is also a supportive environment that intentionally encourages learning in a variety of ways. Many students use the time to gather with a study group. Usually it is not a formal study group as can be arranged through the Nittany Success Center, but a group of students who care about each other and are providing accountability. There are indirect results that cannot be measured but are supported by research. For example, if students feel they belong and that they are surrounded by people who care about them, they are more likely to experience academic success. This has positive implications for retention rates.
Desired Outcomes
The outcomes of the ICH fit into both categories.

As mentioned in responses above, some "behind the scenes" or unmeasurable results do exist. Creating a safe, welcoming place for students to make friends is an essential part of quality campus life. Interacting with faculty and staff in an informal setting makes the campus a comfortable place so students are more likely to engage in academic and social opportunities.

General outcomes would include the following:
1. Students will be able to identify characteristic aspects of various foreign and domestic cultures.

2. Students will develop appreciation for various cultures by participating in enjoyable activities representative of those cultures.

3. Students will learn about and receive resource information for common issues facing students (i.e. health/mental health care, drug/alcohol use/abuse, time management skills)

Detailed, measurable outcomes can be written clearly after a concrete schedule is created for next year. For example, I have tentatively planned activities for Diwali, an important holiday in India and I have a proposal for Amish and Native American presentations.
Comments
International Coffee Hour has a long and varied history on our campus. I have gathered evaluations and suggestions from students throughout the year and two common themes are that this weekly time is valued but could benefit from strategic development.

I believe that hiring an international student to assist with the planning, preparation and hosting of ICH is crucial to its improvement. The $1200 listed above would fund an international student worker for five hours per week.

Since attendance is higher when hands-on activities are provided, it is important that a dependable funding be available for basic craft supplies. Also, more learning takes place by engaging in activity than by reading or hearing so we will be more successful in achieving our learning outcomes if we are able to plan richer activities.

Although emphasis will be placed on student led learning about the cultures represented among our student body, it is important to learn about as many cultures as possible. A small budget for honorariums for guests will significantly broaden our learning experiences and keep us aware of our global community.
Accept Partial Funding?
Yes

SAF Committee Decision

Notes
4.18.14

This is not only for international students - this is for all students.
Why does it cost more to hire an international student?
Do we have any students with dual citizenship - which might allow them to be hired for a smaller cost?

Why is the wage so high? 7.25/hour
Where is the rest of their support coming from? Diversity committee

Details
To fund the campus's Diversity Committee's activities for the year 2014-15
Itemized Request
The SAF usually provides three-quarters of the Diversity Committee's yearly budget, the other portion coming from unrestricted campus funds. We rely on sponsorship of both sponsors to put on programs for the campus and community that foster awareness of diversity issues.
Here is a breakdown of our anticipated expenses for 2014-15:
Replace international flags, as needed $1400
First Friday (Sept, Oct, Nov), speaker fees and food 600
Women's History month 1200
Black History month 1200
Unity day (food, t-shirts, supplies) 1400
international coffee hour (food, supplies) 1000
food service items (chafing dishes, utensils to remain food-safe compliant)
500
financial support for campus clubs to host parties, dances, panels, etc that foster Diversity's goals 1000
Itemized Matching Funds
We are hoping to receive at least $2000 from the campus's unrestricted funds so that we can hire an international student to help at coffee hour
Open to all Campus?
All of Diversity's events are open to the entire campus, and usually the York community as well. We put up flyers, posters, advertise in the SSJ, and use the Student-all email feature to ensure that our programs are highly visible
# of Students Benefit
First Fridays usually draw 25-30 students; the flags benefit the entire campus; Women's History month had a combined attendance of 200; Unity week saw approximately 400 students participate in the week-long events; Black History month drew 40 students; coffee hour draws at least 30 students a week times 30 weeks; and the chafing dishes and utensils will be made available to other committees on campus, if they request to borrow them
Enhance PSY
Our proposal directly addresses the diversity component of the campus's mission. These events also are frequently highlighted in campus literature and do help to draw more diverse student applicants to our campus.
Desired Outcomes
see above answer. We hope that all participants in our activities will come away with a renewed ( or new) appreciation of the commonalities among all of us, breaking the bonds of fear that frequently exist between different cultural, ethnic, religious, and sexual orientations. This will not only make our campus community stronger but produce stronger graduates, more able to function in our increasingly global and diverse world.
Comments
Diversity frequently uses a feedback form after its programs to gather student feedback on the program.
Accept Partial Funding?
Yes

# of Students Benefit
All students who partake in the program will directly benefit. (Approx:30-40 students)
Enhance PSY
There are limited opportunities on campus for veterans to congregate and fraternize, through the proposed out-processing luncheon the veterans will be able to congregate, and fraternize while learning of helpful benefit information available to them. By helping the student veteran body with their benefit awareness we can retain current student veterans. Also, plans will be made regarding community service options for the Fall semester which will make PSU YK visibly active to the community.
Desired Outcomes
Student Veterans will know specific information on: VA benefits, community service options, Salute to Veterans Night, and Veterans day plans. The planned result of this proposal would be to have a vision and forward insight for activities, community service, and activities here at PSU York for the Fall Semester 2014.

Based on student feedback, the handbook/planner was redesigned for next year to include more space - going from a 5x8 planner to one that is 8.5x11.

These handbook/planners are for each student to be aware of what the campus events/activities are planned daily. Also it is a great organizational tool for students to achieve their goals for their education at Penn State.

These handbooks/planners sort of get the retention of students by staying focused and organized to their studies. Realistically though, this is about achieving success while on campus- in the classroom and outside of it too.
# of Students Benefit
Roughly 1000-all those who want one.
Enhance PSY
We ordered 500 handbooks this past year. The handbooks were taken by students immediately. Professors and some students were not able to take advantage of this because there were very few left.
Desired Outcomes
This is a background support. There are no outcomes other than increased student organization/satisfaction. This is a good tool that many students reference for their success. The students are eager and anticipating this handbook/planner to return.
Comments
The cost is higher this year due to the fact that students wanted more space to write their daily appointments/deadlines. This has been accommodated. Thank you for your consideration.

This was a very fulfilling experience for the students who went last year. It always is. Students learn to develop inter- and intra-personal skills. They learn about leadership. They learn about specific organizations and opportunities within the institution. It also provides a unique opportunity for students to network between students from other campuses.
This experience is like no other at Penn State - students have an opportunity to expand their boundaries and interact with students from all walks of life. The environment created is one that encourages each participant to step out of their comfort zone, learn, and have fun in the process.

This will be advertised in the SSJ, on posters, email, through SAF and SGA, and all clubs. It is also attached to the Orientation Leader application. Last year, our campus took 9 individuals - we aim to take our full allotment of 12 this year.
# of Students Benefit
12 students will attend, but the impact is felt campus-wide due to the leadership skills that they learn and apply. The impact of last year can especially be felt on SGA and with the Lion Ambassadors. Some students are also having a great impact on their peers in the classroom.
Enhance PSY
As you can see from previous answers, diversity and education are covered in depth during this event. Rumor has it that the conference theme will focus on character, conscience, and social responsibility. There are roughly 8-10 educational sessions that all students participate in where they learn anything from the basics of managing clubs to the idiosyncrasies of the Penn State system to philosophical discussions of ethics and leadership.

Further, this can actually be seen as a retention initiative, as increased engagement for participants and their peers will benefit the campus as well.
Desired Outcomes
Students will be able to identify their leadership skills, be able to encourage their peers to take advantage of opportunities on campus. Additionally, they will bring back materials and ideas and implement them on this campus. Past participants are extremely active on campus - more so than before they attended. It also gives the participants the opportunity to recruit new students for the clubs with the skills they've learned.

The conference leaders incorporate various assessment methods to ensure that student learning and development occur (this is beyond a simple satisfaction survey).
Comments
Thank you for funding this last year, and for considering it for 2013.

Past students highly recommend the SLC for any and all who desire to better their Penn State experience and overall life skills.

self-awareness. Some leave their sessions have a greater
level of confidence regarding their academic skills.

NSO Advising (formerly FTCAP) is a program for all new first year students and their families and is an introduction to the academic structure of the University. It is coordinated by DUS/Advising and Career Development office. Students meet individually with a faculty adviser, as well as, attend several academic information sessions. Placement into English, math and chemistry, academic preparedness, choice of major and career planning are issues that are discussed. There are 11 days of NSO Advising planned with the last date specifically for international students and those students who live at a distance. This is a retention program intended to help students start their college experience at Penn State York with a realistic idea of the academic expectations, what will be expected of them and the resources available. Part 2 of NSO follows in late August.

Penn State York is very concerned and focused on student retention and student success is a campus priority. NSO Advising is a mandatory program at each campus and provides students the opportunity to examine their academic abilities, interests and educational plans before the start of classes. This program insures that students select appropriate courses and credit load based on their placement, preparedness and intended major, with the help of individual advisers who have been trained specifically to work with this program.
Desired Outcomes
Desired outcomes of NSO Advising include:

Students understand their academic preparedness, abilities and ALEKS assessment, along with their responsibilities and the expectations of college

Students become familiar with the academic structure and programs of the University, including degree requirements, and how their interests and abilities relate to these programs,

Students are acquainted to York campus, our procedures, staff and faculty, resources and out-of class opportunities

Students select appropriate classes/credit load and register for their first semester of study

These events bring back diverse and multi-talented alumni and community members who are in the work force so they can share their experiences and wisdom with our students. Our students have benefitted in many ways over the years, from events like this (shadowing, internships, jobs). We love to showcase our students with our community members - their future employees! By holding events such as these, students have the opportunity to benefit in so many ways!
Desired Outcomes
The Career Networking event has been supported for several years, by SAF money. This is a well-attended, important event for our students. We are expanding it with a variety of topics/speakers/opportunities over a 3 day period in late March. A lot of planning, coordination and effort is going in to making all of these events a success!

This is designed so that students can participate with no cost. This is a very different experience than in the KINES classroom. The event last year was well-received.

They are requesting that we pay $15/student/event, up to $400. Community members will pay the full amount.

No bracket is set up yet.

Last year, there were roughly 4 or 5 students at this event.

There are trophies for the winners, t-shirts for everyone, and the shuttlecocks must be purchased for each event. Leftover funds will be put into the Kinesiology fund.

This is run through the community club - they handle the administration of the event. Badminton vendors have sponsored some of the past events.

Have you considered the possibility of just not charging students? No.

Last year we funded the registration for students and some of the cost of shuttlecocks.

Details
I am planning on purchasing 300 tickets from Hershey Park to sell to the students. This year will be the 5th year doing this massively successful event (previously hosted by Matthew Sutton). SAF covers roughly half of the ticket price while the students pay the other half. There is no profit made. This allows students to be able to purchase 1 ticket per student ID for roughly 73.66% off of the regular ticket price.
This year we will also be selling tickets for the evening class student (those who aren't on campus during the normal hours).

To acquire the full amount of funds needed to afford the grand total, I plan to work with LeighAnn Myers (Admissions Rep, Lion Ambassador Adviser). I will also work with Sue Ruch (Bursar) to acquire the needed funds ahead of time to be able to facilitate this proposal.
Itemized Request
Amount of Tickets - 300

Price per Ticket $32.00------ $9,600.00 Grand Total

Regular Ticket Price $56.95
Amount students save 73.66%
Itemized Matching Funds
$4,500.00 (which is covered by the students)
Open to all Campus?
Like years in the past, we will post flyers and signs on all of our building proposing the time I will be selling tickets, which will be during the common hour and then 5 - 6 pm. Also I will send a couple emails to all students informing them of this opportunity. I will sell tickets during the lunch hour and in the evening 5 days a week until all tickets are sold (approx. 1-3 weeks).
# of Students Benefit
If each student purchases a (1) ticket (the max allowed) this allows 300 students to be impacted.
Enhance PSY
This proposal could increase the morale on campus and given the past years when we sold 2 tickets per student we will now sell 1 ticket per student giving other students a chance to purchase tickets.
This will also give the students an opportunity to partake in a school activity, that is not on a scheduled date. For example, Trips to New York are on specific dates and some student may not be able to attend. But when they purchase the tickets they can go to Hershey Park anytime between May and September. This is also something that all students can take joy into; traditional and nontraditional students.
Desired Outcomes
As mention above, students will be able to purchase the maximum amount of one ticket WITH their Penn State York ID. This year, I will not only be selling tickets during the common hour but in the evening as well, in hopes to attract the night crowd.
The students will be able to use their ticket for the regular season at Hershey Park, which is May 8th - September 28th 2014. That gives them the opportunity to go as they please.
Comments
With the cooperation with Matt Sutton, this event for the past couple years has been a great success and was very beneficial to hundreds of Penn State York students.
I also think that this an excellent use of SAF funds and proves to students that these funds are used to benefit them.

Lastly, I would like to be present during this meeting to answer any additional questions, seeing as this proposal can be complicated. I plan on attending the meeting on Friday February 28th.

Thank you for your time and consideration of this proposal and allowing me to still have a hand in making this campus a better place.

This funding would be to allow PSY students to attend THON and support our campus's dancers. THON raises money for kids battling cancer at Hershey Medical Center. Last year THON raised over $12 million dollars! It is often said that THON is on of the trademark activities of being a Penn State student. Through this, PSY students can participate in the largest student run philanthropy in the world! Anyone who has been to THON can testify that there is no way to explain THON and put it into words- you just have to experience it!
Itemized Request
6 hotel rooms x $95/night x 2 nights = 1,140 allow for a place for students to sleep
$50 gas/car x 10 cars = $500, instead of taking a bus, we have found it is easier for students to drive themselves in order to have transportation to and from the hotel in different shifts. Depending on the number of students who attend this cost could be lower. We want to make sure any student who wants to attend THON from PSY is given the chance!

Because THON is a Penn State tradition and has donated over 100 million dollars back to the community since its began, our attendance shows we are involved in community service. Prospective students can see how to get involved at PSY and also be part of an organization which is known all over the country. THON is a positive event and the publicity surrounding it is a wonderful way to attract attention to PSY
Desired Outcomes
We hope that students who attend THON will have a better understanding of how the money we raise impacts our community. Also, we hope that students who attend THON will be inspired by the children and the other students who don't give up and keep fighting.

Last year's trip was a success and we hope to include more York campus students in this year's event.

Students planning to transfer to University Park can take this trip to State College. (first open to those transferring Fall 2014) In addition to an informational tour, they will be able to connect with former York students who have already experienced the move and are currently enrolled at U.P. (a great networking opportunity)

Representatives from (U.P.) Career & Advising and Student Transition Office will also partner/be available.

Estimated timeline:
8-10:30 a.m. Travel to U.P.
10:30 a.m. Town tour in bus/van
11:30-1:00 Lunch/Networking at Robb Hall
1-2:30 p.m. Campus tour

This is a great networking and informational opportunity for our students. Also, by including our former York campus students (soon to be alumni) it is just one more way to reinforce "where they came from" in hopes they will continue to be good stewards of Penn State York. Keeping the York connection with our students and alumni is so very important to us!
Desired Outcomes
Impact: Students will feel more comfortable with the transition to University Park, have already established connections, and hopefully continue with a successful Penn State experience. Networking opportunities can lead to so many other opportunities - and hopefully our former students/new PSU alumni will continue to support our York campus and future students in the years to come.

Last year's trip was a success. The UP folks really like it, they may pilot this in other ways for other reasons/campuses. This year, there is a sponsor to pay for the room rental there ($500). It is expanded for this year as well, because UP folks like it - they want to speak to our students. Confident that all seats can be filled.

Is the $900 bus price tag accurate? Probably.
This is a wonderful idea. Great to have previous York students involved.

- The total number of students in the other event was roughly 49 students.
- This time we approved $2100 instead of $2000, so 55 (Actually 51, since 4
seats are for supervisors) students can go instead of 47 (43).
- The last trip to Manhattan was filled super fast and people were trying to
sign up, but it was too late. Also, this time students will be charged $10.

Itemized Matching Funds

Open to all Campus?
The Ag Science club and the GELP would like to bring Jerry Greenfield to campus to speak to our students about business development, entrepreneurialism, and environmental sustainability. Since ice cream is a dairy product and comes from dairy manufacturing, bringing a well-known speaker like Jerry Greenfield to PSU-York would help students to understand the importance of agricultural science and industry in our lives. The Graham Center is supporting this because of the obvious connection to entrepreneurialism. The Graham Center exists to encourage Penn State York students to think in the ways that Jerry Greenfield thinks. Jerry is an absolutely perfect speaker for all Penn State students, according to the principles of the Graham Center. The fact that he will address social responsibility is significant as well, due to the fact that we don't have a tremendous amount of activities that address this important topic.

We would like to have the talk during the longest common hour (noon-1:30PM) on a Tuesday. Being the common hour, we presume to get a large student turnout. The plan is to use the Pullo Center and open this to not only the campus, but also the York community. Advertising will be done across campus facilities (New Student Orientation Advising,
Campus Life Orientation, faculty/staff events, email, posters, webpage, etc.) and faculty will be encouraged to make attendance a part of their
coursework/assignments. Since this will be open to the public, advertising will also occur in local media outlets (billboards, newspaper, radio, TV, etc.) thereby raising the visibility of our campus.
# of Students Benefit
All that attend (1000 max capacity in the Pullo Center)
Enhance PSY
This talk will focus not only on student learning, but Ben and Jerry's is known
for their business leadership in the area of sustainability. Their
community presence is felt across the nation through their free scoop days every spring. They even started a pig farm in Vermont so that they could
be environmentally friendly about the way that they disposed of some of
their organic materials - instead of throwing them away, they started a
pig farm and fed the pigs! There are many ways in which this talk will be
a learning opportunity for students, but it will also inspire and motivate
them to think creatively about problem solving as they continue at Penn
State and beyond!

Students will know more about an influential business, the way that it
began, and the way that they continue to push the envelope (and other
businesses) regarding environmental stewardship. The outcomes of this are
multi-faceted in that some students will leave inspired about their
coursework; some will leave motivated about their career; and some will be
able to more fully articulate connections between their authentic selves,
their work at Penn State, and their integration with a global community.

It is also worth noting that this is the type of event that our students
have been clamoring for - they want big names, big events - something they
can brag about. This fills that slot, but is also tremendously educational
at the same time. This is a win/win situation!
Comments
Thank you so much for your consideration of this proposal. We see this
event as a tremendous moment for our campus, which is why the entire
faculty and staff will be on board. As previously mentioned, we are
securing funding from multiple areas; seeking support from a large variety
of students, faculty, staff, and clubs; and we will be inviting the
community and influential business leaders as well. Not only will this be
extremely advantageous for our students, it will be a proud moment for our
campus and the institution.

Yes

SAF Committee Decision

Notes
12.6.13

- The amount of students isn't practical. There are doubts that student
participation is going to happen.
- This is supposed to be for the students and the community - the community should pay something for this. The SAF funding isn't meant for the community.
- The money is only meant for next year.
- The name enhances our campus as a whole. If the event is successful, our
campus name has a potential of being well known.
- Dr. Landis should come up with a fee for the community and have it free for students.

I've been in charge of this program for several years now, and I can state without qualification that those students who attend this event feel that it is extremely useful to their careers (and that our students definitely benefit from some professional coaching in the areas covered)
Desired Outcomes
The presenters discuss, demonstrate, and then guide the participants through a series of exercises that explore the social interactions and dining etiquette appropriate to a business event in both national (U.S.) and international contexts. Of course the program is given during an actual dinner.
Comments
Since IST no longer has a surcharge, the monies in the IST Surcharge Fund are dwindling rapidly. In the near future, IST will not be able to underwrite any of the costs for this event. I hope the Campus will be able to find other sources of funding so that this valuable program can continue after the Surcharge Funds run out

What dictates the seating limit? Capacity of the room. Presenters work individually with students at tables, so this can't be much bigger for this practical reason.

What is the total event cost for? Food, caterer - runs about $1500. Presenters are roughly $1000.

How many junior and senior IST majors are there? Roughly 40.

This event is very beneficial for the students. Local business feedback is positive because they have our students as interns - students really need this!!

The international component of this is especially helpful for our students.

In an effort to encourage student participation in the survey of academic advising at Penn State York that will be prepared by the Academic Advising Council subcommittee, we would like to give out coupons for a free drink at the Lion's Den in return for completing an advising survey. We plan to set up a table that will be manned by SGA representatives and a few faculty from the Academic Advising Council. At the table will be hard copies of the survey that students will be able to fill out and hand back to receive their coupon since they will be already on their way to lunch anyways.
Itemized Request
500 students x $1.33 per drink = $665

These will be the price of a fountain soda from the Lion's Den rather than the bottled drinks.
Itemized Matching Funds
none
Open to all Campus?
To advertise the event, posters will be created and hung around campus. It will also be discussed in SGA to get the information out by word of mouth. This survey and free drink coupon opportunity is open to all students at Penn State York. We are aiming to get as many students as we possibly can to take the survey!
# of Students Benefit
At the maximum, 500. Participation in the survey two years ago was only 120 students.
Enhance PSY
Academic advising is essential to every student's education here at Penn State York. In order to successfully graduate from Penn State, the correct classes need to be taken. To ensure that Penn State York is up to par in advising of students, a survey is going to be conducted. The results from this survey will allow the necessary officials to make changes to the advising process here on campus to better the experience for the students.
Desired Outcomes
The incentive of a free drink at the Lion's Den would entice students to participate in the advising survey. This survey would provide valuable feedback to the Academic Advising Council that can be used to make proper changes for the betterment of our campus.
Comments
If the full cost is not allowed to be covered by SAF, we will try for SGA funding, also.

Proposal is now for $500.
From CCSG - there are some poor advising practices on some campuses, students feel that they aren't getting proper advising - which is why they want to do this survey. Some advisors are improperly trained. The survey will also cover student responsibility for advising.
Many faculty and staff from campus helped to write this survey.
How long will it take to complete the survey? 3 minutes
Campus Senate Subcommittee has approved this.
This will be for all students.
Will the results of the survey be shared widely? Yes.
How many coupons will $500 purchase? 500. Lion's Den is giving us a break.
This is a trend - that students will become more involved with their advising experience. Another issue that people were having - that students are getting pushed to UP instead of answering certain questions.
A great proposal.
Perhaps this should be funded elsewhere - possibly through a department on campus, or SGA.
Perhaps we can fund a portion of the coupons that are redeemed.
The vote is on 50% of the redeemed coupons. Proposal approved as such.

This is a rare opportunity for our science students to see a world-class research facility. This will certainly enhance their interest in science. Also, it will be a great opportunity for our international students to visit our nation's capital, hopefully helping them understand America and Americans a little better. This is also a great opportunity for all students to get to know each other better.
Desired Outcomes
We really don't have any specific learning outcomes. We hope that students will be better able to read a subway and city map. Also, this may encourage more interest in science and research or even American Studies or history.
Comments
We will be happy to give students an anonymous survey asking for their feedback on the event after the trip. We will ask what they learned about navigating in a foreign city and what they learned from their tour of DC. We will also ask if they would recommend that other students have this same opportunity in the future.

This is an embedded trip. You need not be enrolled in the course to go on the trip. If you are in the course, you need not go on the trip. When students return, they do a presentation during Unity Week to talk about the trip.

Students will attempt to get funds from other sources like Honors, and Global Programs.

Students only pay $84/semester - this is much more than that.

This is $500/student. They are not asking for more or less per student.

When would they be funded? After they return and present to the campus.

$500 is a lot per student.

$250 is approved per student for a maximum of 10 students.

Penn State York students will show their pride by modeling Penn State attire at the Women's Show in York. The event has about 12,000 visitors over the two-day period. When the students model the clothing, information about them including their major, hometown, areas of interest, student clubs, and goals after graduation are read. The event allows the community to get more familiar with Penn State York students
Itemized Request
Clothing items will be purchased for Penn state York students to wear in the fashion show. Each student will be able to keep the one item after the show. The Penn State York Bookstore will provide a 20 percent discount on items purchased and will provide accessories such as coffee mugs, teddy bears, etc., that will be used during the show but returned after it.

# of Students Benefit
15-20 will participate
Enhance PSY
Penn State York continues to be a hidden gem in the community. By highlighting our students at this event, the York community becomes more familiar with our campus and the impact we can have in it. The Women's Show is a huge event that is supported by the local community and focuses on helping women, a minority group. Prospective students and their parents, business professional, and others attend the Women's Show and being a part of it is good community service. Reminding people that there is a Penn State presence in York is a good thing and doing it in a way that is fun and features our students and their accomplishments is very positive.
Desired Outcomes
Showing pride in your school is a powerful thing. Given the events of recent years, our students giving up their time on a Sunday to participate in an event that allows them to show off Penn State is even more appropriate. For those who have always wanted to know what it is like to be a model, this event allows them to experience something they may have never done. This event builds friendship among students, instills confidence, and allows students to have fun while promoting their University.

The fashion show is not just about modeling clothing, the text read as each student takes to the runway highlights their major, accomplishments, interests, and involvement at the campus and in the community. This further provides a better glimpse of what it is like to be a student at Penn State York.
Comments
Attendance at the Women's Show ion Sunday is about 6,000 so that is a tremendous amount of exposure for our students and the campus. Thank you for your consideration of this proposal.

Does clothing for 15 people cost $1000?
The exposure of Penn State would be great.
Is this an activity that SAF should be funding? Is it a student activity?
$1000 is steep just for clothes.
This is more positive than negative.
Great to highlight our students in the community like this.

Perhaps we can vote on $600 which would be $30 per clothing item if there are 20 students.

The funds requested will support co-curricular events related to Teaching International (TI), a new initiative at Penn State York. TI is designed to internationalize the campus experience of Penn State students. Specifically, the funds will pay for film fees, speaker honoraria, and refreshments.
TI originated at the Penn State Greater Allegheny campus in 2004 and now is expanding to include several PSU campuses (York, New Kensington, and Lehigh Valley). TI works within the classroom and outside the classroom to forge connections between the world inside and outside the university, develop global awareness, and prepare students for the world marketplace.
Each year, TI chooses a country/region and a theme and designs a series of co-curricular events highlighting the country/region and/or theme. Penn State York’s 2013-14 country/region is “the Indian Subcontinent” and the theme is “global health.” TI programming takes multiple forms, and at PSY this year we have four components:
• World maps located around the campus.
• A speaker and film series centered on the Indian Subcontinent and Global Health.
• Course Integrations: Professors across fields—from English to IST—will integrate material related to the country/region and/or theme into their courses.
• Undergraduate Research Fair participation by students who choose to conduct research in TI’s focus areas.

Speaker: Geraldine Forbes, Distinguished Teaching Professor of History, SUNY-Oswego
Topic: Women in Colonial India

Professor Forbes has published numerous books on women in India, and teaches a course in trafficking, which is related to the film we will be screening with funding from SAF. She has also taken students to India as part of Study Abroad opportunities as SUNY.

Itemized Budget for her Visit
Per Diem in York (2 days @ $41) = $92.00
Hotel 90.00
Airfare (est.) 350.00
Honorarium 500.00
TOTAL: $1032.00

TOTAL REQ from Diversity: 250.00

TOTAL REQ from SAF: 782.00

In addition, please note that, per a meeting of TI Committee on Monday, September 9, 2013, there is now an assessment plan for the initiative in place. We will survey participants in all events to assess the effectiveness and impact of TI on learning and awareness.
Itemized Matching Funds
$200 from Campus Arts Fund; $50 from Arts and Liberal Studies Unit Funds
Open to all Campus?
The events funded will be open to all students and broadly advertised using posters and electronic media (campus calendars, e-mails, TV monitors). Professors will also be promoting attendance in their classes.
# of Students Benefit
All.
Enhance PSY
In developing this program, we seek to enhance the campus's current efforts to promote diversity. TI's emphasis on global awareness brings international experiences to students on campus (some of whom may be unable to pursue Study Abroad), helps students make connections between course material and the world outside the classroom, and may encourage students to take advantage of study abroad programs. The Campus Diversity Committee is collaborating with TI on the speaker series, and we thank them for their support.
Desired Outcomes
TI offers students the opportunity to connect their in-class experiences with co-curricular events that show how their classwork "works" in the world. For example, speakers like Anju Jain will show how experience in human development and family studies translates into global human resources work; author Sujata Massey will speak about exploring her heritage as a source for writing; faculty member Abul Hasan (who will speak jointly with his daughter) will speak about his family's experiences "paying it forward" by giving back to his father's village in Pakistan.
Comments
Teaching International is a committee of faculty and staff interested in this type of programming. We welcome student participation, and in fact we hope student groups will design their own events related to this year's theme, and--much more importantly--help us pick next year's country/region and theme and develop events for the 2014-15 year.

The next meeting of the TI committee is Monday, September 9 from 12:10-12:50 in the Chancellor's Conference Room. We welcome interested students at this meeting. We will begin the process of selecting next year's country/region and theme at this meeting, and then make a final decision at a January 2014 meeting. We will keep Student Affair apprised of the date of this meeting so that students may attend that as well.

The usage of these funds is the epitome of this question. This funding will goes towards creating a greater sense of community on campus through the variety of events that we are able to provide, the late night and weekend programming that we can provide to our students living in nearby apartments, as well as students that want to participate in such activities, the establishment of a leadership program at Penn State York and monthly community service trips to different areas of York. The availability of these funds will completely transform what Student Activities will look like on this campus next year.
Desired Outcomes
Students will be able to participate and partake in a vast variety of events on campus, learn new things about topics and areas that they did not know much about, develop their leadership skills through a create leadership program, and promote Penn State York more in the community through a monthly Community Service initiative throughout York and York County.

New Student Orientation is the true beginning to a student at Penn State York. They arrive on campus on that Friday before classes start, meet other students, get to know their adviser or an academic member within their major, learn about the resources that Penn State York can offer, and much more!

This year, Orientation will be bigger and better! There are more Orientation Leaders on staff than in previous years which assists in the New Student/Orientation Leader ratio. This year, we are hoping to do some summer bonding excursions with the local Orientation Leaders, a 3-day training before Orientation season, a revamped International Orientation program that features more trips, food, and access to local shops and shopping centers to expose more of York and the United States to our international students. Orientation is also hoping to design, develop, and purchase shirts that students could wear on a weekly basis if they want to with top shelf designers like Adidas, Nike, Under Armor or something of similar quality.
Itemized Request
International Orientation - $10,000.00
New Student Orientation - $15,000.00
Training - $1,000.00
Supplies & Shirts - $4,000.00

Orientation is promoted to all First-Year students, transfer students, and adult students and is a necessary part in one's college experience. Orientation is publicized to students when they get accepted to the University as a next steps process before they arrive for classes, they receive a mailer through the mail from University Park, as well as a mailer and email reminders from the Student Affairs Office about the dates of Orientation.

Enhance PSY
New Student Orientation is a chance for incoming students to learn about how great Penn State York really is, the resources that the campus has to aid them in succeeding, and allowing them the opportunity to feel more comfortable before arriving on campus for classes. On the flip side, the Orientation Leaders will be aiding students through this process and will be developing multiple skills along the way such as communication and interpersonal skills.
Desired Outcomes
Students should be able to identify areas on campus that can help them succeed throughout the area, point out some friendly faces either on staff or within their Pride Groups that they can turn to for assistance throughout the year or some people that they can hang out with, and the Orientation Leaders will develop a bigger sense of Penn State pride, as well as develop as Student Leaders, be a resource for these incoming students, and have fun in the process!

The transportation will allow our students to arrive safely to University Park and enjoy the day's program and seeing University Park for possibly the first time.

Desired Outcomes
Students will have a better understanding of the expectations and requirements of transitioning and the steps necessary to follow through with their transition. Students will also be able to make connections at the event and know what type of resources is available to them to make their transition as smooth as possible.

The only thing that I can say for this portion is that this will provide safety for our students so that they do not drive themselves to and from University Park. This is a perk that the commonwealth gets to enjoy by getting a pre-allotment of football game tickets and the transportation makes it much easier for the coordination of the event than without it.

The National Association for Campus Activities (NACA) Conference will be held in Buffalo, NY in October. This is a 3-day conference for anyone (student/staff) in the field of Student Activities. The days are jam-packed with educational sessions, mingling with other campuses within the surrounding states, and most importantly, seeing live college performers that students might want to bring onto campus. This conference allows students to see college acts live instead of just listening to a CD or watching a clip on YouTube. Students get to see how they are live, the energy, the emotion, how their voice sounds live, are they funny?, their set, etc. This is beneficial for any campus that books a lot of shows/programs and wants to get a sneak peak at what they're booking before they arrive on campus.

As stated in a previous SAF proposal, NACA also allows students the opportunity to see a variety of acts, ranging from fun, social entertainers to lecturers that can dive into heavy topics such as drinking problems, drug problems, LGBT issues, Diversity issues, Women's issues, etc. NACA is a leader in higher education in providing diversified acts that can target many different areas. This is a bonus of their membership, and is definitely a bonus of attending this conference. Students can also speak with other programmers on their respective campuses and potentially bring back ideas that have worked elsewhere and try it out at Penn State York.
Desired Outcomes
Students will be able to have the knowledge to be better programmers on campus, have better critical thinking skills when things come up in an event that they might have not been able to handle before, be more aware of diversity in the higher education setting and how to promote it in their daily and programming lives, and be better communicators to see what exactly students want to see on campus.

New Student Orientation, the Advising Component used to be called FTCAP. This half day program is for all new first-year students and their families and is an introduction to the academic structure of the University. Students meet individually with a faculty adviser, as well as attending several academic information sessions. Placement test results, academic preparedness and choice of major are issues that are discussed. Students are introduced to the concept of advising and make their first connection to their adviser, as well as schedule their classes for fall semester. Families receive similar information and have opportunities to share their concerns and ideas with other families and staff.
This Advising Component is followed by and links to the second component of NSO in August, where much of the information is reinforced.

This program assists new first-year students to evaluate their educational plans by providing them with a comprehensive program of testing, individualized educational planning and academic advising. All entering first-year students are given the opportunity to examine their academic abilities, interests, and educational plans before their first semester of classes.
Desired Outcomes
This program provides students:
* an understanding of their academic preparation and abilities as compared to other Penn State students
* the results of their placement tests
* a one-on-one interview with an adviser (during this interview, educational plans and the characteristics of those academic programs are discussed)
* familiarizes students with the academic structure of Penn State and with the wide range of degree programs available.
*acquaints students with the York campus, our procedures, some of our staff and faculty, and our out-of-class environment.
* helps students select courses and register for their first semester of study. Course selection is done via individual adviser meetings.


Comments
At the end of each day of this program, students and families submit their evaluations. The 2012 evaluations have been compiled, along with written comments, and are available to the SAFC.

This was a very fulfilling experience for the students who went last year. It always is. Students learn to develop inter- and intra-personal skills. They learn about leadership. They learn about specific organizations and opportunities within the institution. It also provides a unique opportunity for students to network between students from other campuses.
This experience is like no other at Penn State - students have an opportunity to expand their boundaries and interact with students from all walks of life. The environment created is one that encourages each participant to step out of their comfort zone, learn, and have fun in the process.
Itemized Request
$3360 - 12 students and 2 advisors - registration
$800 - vans and gas
$280 - 2 lunches for 14 people ($10 per lunch)
$280 - t-shirt uniforms

This will be advertised in the SSJ, on posters, email, through SAF and SGA, and all clubs. It is also attached to the Orientation Leader application. Last year, our campus took 9 individuals - we aim to take our full allotment of 12 this year.
# of Students Benefit
12 students will attend, but the impact is felt campus-wide due to the leadership skills that they learn and apply. The impact of last year can especially be felt on SGA and with the Lion Ambassadors. Some students are also having a great impact on their peers in the classroom.
Enhance PSY
As you can see from previous answers, diversity and education are covered in depth during this event. Rumor has it that the conference theme will focus on character, conscience, and social responsibility. There are roughly 8-10 educational sessions that all students participate in where they learn anything from the basics of managing clubs to the idiosyncrasies of the Penn State system to philosophical discussions of ethics and leadership.

Further, this can actually be seen as a retention initiative, as increased engagement for participants and their peers will benefit the campus as well.
Desired Outcomes
Students will be able to identify their leadership skills, be able to encourage their peers to take advantage of opportunities on campus. Additionally, they will bring back materials and ideas and implement them on this campus. Past participants are extremely active on campus - more so than before they attended. It also gives the participants the opportunity to recruit new students for the clubs with the skills they've learned.

The conference leaders incorporate various assessment methods to ensure that student learning and development occur (this is beyond a simple satisfaction survey).
Comments
Thank you for funding this last year, and for considering it for 2013.

Past students highly recommend the SLC for any and all who desire to better their Penn State experience and overall life skills.

This is very much about satisfaction and retention. This
program enhances Penn State York due to the fact that
relationships are deepened during these meetings. Sometimes
students will use these to talk about a course, or to get help
with their career. Sometimes they are meeting with a mentor or someone on campus they see as an individual to point them in the right direction.

Sometimes they are able to make better choices about what
courses to take. Sometimes they learn about specific material
from the classroom. Sometimes they just make a friend and an
ally on campus.

These handbooks/planners sort of get the retention of students by staying focused and organized to their studies. Realistically though, this is about achieving success while on campus- in the classroom and outside of it too.
Desired Outcomes
This is a background support. There are no outcomes other than increased student organization/satisfaction. This is a good tool that many students reference for their success. The students are eager and anticipating this handbook/planner to return.

There is room for 47 people on the bus.
Enhance PSY
We see this trip as exposing students to other cultures and making them more comfortable with exploring this world-class city. This trip might encourage some of our students to go outside of their comfort zone. Also, students in the art classes could benefit from the museums.
Desired Outcomes
Part of being a well-rounded person is being curious and being willing to try new things. We hope that students are being encouraged in their classes to bond with each other; this trip will require them to work in small groups to decide on their day's plan and navigate the city. We hope this will build a spirit of community among the students.

Purpose of funds: Weekly Peer Tutor Training to 1) best prepare our tutors to provide the quality of tutoring assistance this campus has come to expect, and has received, and 2) to maintain our certification as a CRLA ( College Reading and Learning Association) nationally certified tutoring program
Itemized Request
Weekly tutor training sessions are provided to NSC peer tutor staff;

$8.00/hr x 20/hours x 20 peer tutors = $3200.
Itemized Matching Funds
The NSC pays our peer tutors approximately $ 10,500 /year in wages
Open to all Campus?
Any and all Penn State York students may request tutoring assistance and/or Study Groups. (And, any student who receives an "A" in a course may contact us about joining our tutoring staff).

We routinely advertise our services via the YorkAll listserve, the Faculty listserve, the adjunct faculty listserve, the Stall Seat Journal, most campus publications (electronic and hard copy), in person contact with parents and students during FTCAP/NSO, on our Bulletin Board in the RAB, and we are included on the Syllabi of all faculty.
# of Students Benefit
We served approximately 250 students via peer tutoring in 2012-2013.
Enhance PSY
The focus of the Nittany Success Center is on student learning and achievement. We provide services to any student who requests such, which results in serving students who fall anywhere on our campus diversity continuum. As per the summary, below, there were 1,864 contacts between our peer tutors and our students during the 2011 - 2012 academic year. Of these, 47% of the tutees received a grade of "A" or "B" in the course. (We will aqnalyze and collate 2012- 2013 data during the summer months.) We contribute significantly to campus retention!
Desired Outcomes
Our impact is measured in student partcipation in the NSC (and we are talking several hundred students) and their academic success (47% with A/B grades!!). Students learn how to be effective students, to acquire and to apply learning strategies they often have no previous experience with, and they gain the confidence necessary to become autonomous learners.
Comments
The one page review will be provided upon completion of this semester (Spring 2013 and compilation of our annual report).

This activity directly benefits our community because we are showing our THON families how much we care about them. It is also a chance for our families to say thank you to all the students for supporting the THON club throughout the year. Also, if more people on campus got to put a face to the THON cause, perhaps they would see why they should join. Student involvement is the essence of college. Anything to increase this will benefit our school.
Desired Outcomes
After this event, students will have a better understanding of the impact THON has on families in our area. It will also allow students the opportunity to meet our families.

We will be having a scholarship thank you reception on Monday April 22nd. The event will begin at 6:00pm where students will be able to face-to-face thank their scholarship donor. Donors and students are very excited to get the chance to meet one another. As part of the event we have the Statesmen, an a cappella group from University Park, coming to perform for students, donors, alumni, some advisory board members, and ollie. We will be paying for the desserts and drinks for the reception as well as half of the Statemen performance fee, but we are asking for funds to pay the Pullo to use for the other half of funds to pay the performers.

# of Students Benefit
Up to as many seats as the Pullo will hold
Enhance PSY
This event encourages student involvement with people in the community, it helps with enrollment because students are always looking for more events and this is a fun group they can come see for free. It allows students to meet different people that want them to succeed especially since it has a direct impact on their education. Funding this event will also hep encourage donors to continue to give every year.
Desired Outcomes
The greatest thing about this event is that students can thank their donor for the impact they have had on their education. It’s important because it shows how grateful our campus is for scholarships. Students have the opportunity to be able interact and meet with other donors and advisory board members, which is a great experience for students and a great way for them to be involved with members of our community. The performance by the Statesmen will allow for awesome entertainment and a fun environment for all guests. As well as provide a fun show for students to come to and enjoy outside of classes. Holding a reception like this is something donors look forward to every year and since we were not able to have one in 2012 so we would love to make 2013 the best one yet!

The Penn Players would like to see a professional Broadway show in lieu of performing their own show this semester. Usually SGA and SAF give funds for a play but we are asking for funds to be used for this event instead this semester. This allows them to become more well-rounded, well-cultured, and they can bring back tips and techniques for future performances.
Itemized Request
Bailey's Coach 26 Passenger bus with driver $980.00
Broadway Group Rate Tickets (min. 10 people) for Chicago $42.50/ person -$10 paid per student= $32.50 per person

The price may vary between $340-860 depending on people attending, 10-26= 859.50 maximum.

Itemized Matching Funds
$100-260
Open to all Campus?
The event will be open to the entire campus and students will learn about live professional theatre from the best in the world. Students may also opt to go along for the bus ride but not attend a show if they would rather immerse themselves in the culture of the city. We will put it on the campus calendar, Dr. Stelly and Professor Moore will advertise in their classes. We will hang signs around campus as well as promote by word of mouth.
# of Students Benefit
10-26
Enhance PSY
This activity is focused on diversity and arts and music education. Giving students opportunities like trips to NYC could certainly increase enrollment and retention.
Desired Outcomes
Students will know what a professional theatrical production looks like and be able to bring back ideas for future shows on our campus. Enhancing the quality of theatre performed at Penn State York can also help bring in members of the community which could also increase enrollment.

This trip is for fun! We have international students who cannot work during the summer, and most Summer 1 classes do not meet on Friday.

# of Students Benefit
Maximum of 20: we will purchase 20 tickets then be given two free chaperone tickets
Enhance PSY
This trip is a retention effort. It expands the opportunities to explore Central PA to all our students, especially those here from out of state or out of country. Our international students cannot hold a job while here and so many of them are looking for fun, safe things to do during the summer.
Desired Outcomes
I don't expect the students to be able to "do" anything after this trip. Hopefully, though, they will be more comfortable with each other and be willing to explore our local area a bit more.
Comments
This trip has gone over well in the past, and I have already had students asking if we were going to go again. If SAF cannot fund it in its entirety, we could ask for $10 from students, decreasing SAF cost by the amount collected. And the chaperone/faculty tickets are free so these do not deprive students of seats on the van or cost the SAF money.

Members of The Nittany Catwalk are organizing their annual fashion show in support of child abuse awareness month. The show originated back in 2011 in memory of Darisabel Baez, a young toddler who lived in York City. She was beaten to death in 2008 by her mother's boyfriend. The 2012 show focused on child abuse cases over the world, including, Africa, Australia, and Paris. A preliminary talk with outside staff / professionals showed that they are committed to producing a high quality show while keeping the cost as low as possible. They were all generous enough to quote discounted estimates for their time and talent being that the show is for such a good cause. Clothing stores such as Old Navy, Gap, 5-7-9, Macy's, New York Trends, and Maurices have distributed clothing for the fashion. Majority of the funding will support the utilization of the Pullo Center. Jason Williams, from Complete Video and Photography has agreed to send out his best team to capture footage backstage, and during the event. His team will take snap shots, and record the entire show for a discounted price. Copies of the photos will be available online for models, family, and friends to purchase, also at a discounted price. One CD copy of the photos as well as three DVD copies of the fashion show is included in his estimate. A professional team of hair and make-up artist in York has also agreed to contribute their services at a tremendously low rate. We are looking into purchasing stage props such as balloon archways, runway carpets, and draping effects to help glamorize the set. In the past the number of models has ranged between 30-35 total. Without the help of an additional 20-25 people helping backstage the show would not be a success. We like to make sure there is an appropriate amount of food for everyone. The final amount of funding contributes to decorating the entrance The Pullo Center.

Thet Tournament is a two day Tournament. Saturday and Sunday the weekend of April 13th. It will comprise of men and women singles, doubles and mixed doubles. Meaning one man and one woman. TheTournament is open to the entire Penn State communinty as well as the York community. For the tournament the biggest expenses are shuttle cocks (also known as birdies for badminton). Shuttle cocks are very expensive if using real ones. That is ones made from goose feather and not cheap plastic. A real shuttle cock that is used professionally can cost from 2-6 dollars for one. For theTournament 250-300 at least are required. Sine there are over 100 people already signed up and are interested we will need many of them. Not to mention trophies are expensive. We need trophies for all the finalists in all 5 events. The extra 200 dollars requested is for unforseen circumstances. Meaning if too many people register and come to the event. We would need more shuttle cocks. Essentially the money being requested is to help fund the startup for the Tournament. Due to the vast number of people already signing up saying they are interested the money will be made back quickly. There is a $15 sign up fee for every event in theTournament, so ultimately the money will be made back and then some. The entire amount of money made will go back into the Penn State York Badminton club account.
Itemized Request
Trohpies : $250
Shuttle Cocks (Birdies) : $1, 250
Other expenses due to unforseen circumstances: $200


Itemized Matching Funds
1750.00 The amount I am requesting for the Total Event Cost is essentially the Itemized matching funds. So the total amount I need is 1750.00 dollars in total.
Open to all Campus?
The Tournament has already been made an event on Facebook. Myself, Dr. Swalgin, and Aileen Chyn a woman helping me coordinate the Tournament have already invited the PSU York Badminton team along with the other Badminton clubs from Penn State. The Tournament is open to the community and many citizens of the York area have signed up mainly from word of mouth throughout the badminton community. An E-mail was even sent out to those students intersted in the Tournament two weeks ago and many have signed up.
# of Students Benefit
As of today 15 Penn State York students are registered for the tournament, but this is not including the other Penn State sudents from other campuses. Approx. 40
Enhance PSY
This badminton Tournament will really draw attention to the Penn State York campus. Badminton could be one of the next big things to hit Penn State York. Not only will this help promote the newly made badminton club, but it will also promote interest in the sport of badminton. Also having this tournament will make it easier to have future badminton tournaments since the groundwork will have already been laid.
Desired Outcomes
After this Tournament it should make students much more interested in badminton. It should solidfy the fact that there is a growing interest in the sport of badminton at the Penn State York Campus. Especially among the international students.
Comments
This Tournament is already being planned and is going to happen. So, it is vital that the funds requested be allowed. Don't forget all the money made from this tournament will be going back into Penn State in the end.

To see the art exhibit at the Walters Art Museum (www.thewalters.org) and then explore Baltimore's Inner Harbor. This is a great opportunity for our students to explore a nearby city: art, shops, seafood, Little Italy, aquarium, harbor, for example. We will have a docent-led tour of the museum then escort them to the harbor where the students can explore on their own. Maps of the city will be provided. We are requesting funding to take two vans, but if we do not need the second van, we will cancel it, reducing the cost

Enhance PSY
I think we have a responsibility to offer our students educational trips to nearby areas of interest. These trips can broaden our students' college experience and are especially important for our students who have not graduated from local high schools, highlighting American art and culture. We will ensure that the students in the art classes and mythology classes are aware of this trip as this presents a unique opportunity to see world-class art and a vibrant city. This will give our students an opportunity to bond outside the classroom, and maybe make some more comfortable traveling on their own.
Desired Outcomes
Activities like this make our campus more attractive to prospective students if we can show that we make affordable"off-campus" trips part of the regular opportunities for students. These trips are good for both recruitment AND retention.

I will be happy to distribute a survey after the trip and report back to the SAF committee.

I am planning on purchasing 500 tickets to Hershey Park to sell to the students. This will be the 5th year of doing this massively successful event (previous hosted by Matthew Sutton). SAF covers roughly half of the ticket price while the students pay the other half. There is no profit made. This allows students to be able to purchase up to 2 tickets per student ID for roughly 74.12% off of the regular ticket price.

To acquire the full amount of funds needed to afford the grand total, I plan to work with LeighAnn Myers (Admissions, Lion Ambassador Adviser). I will also work with Sue Ruch (Bursar) to acquire the needed funds ahead of time to be able to facilitate this proposal.

This proposal enables students to be able to see their SAF funds used directly. This also allows students to be able to enjoy their semester break and go with a friends and family to a local amusement park that is typically overpriced for many college students.
Itemized Request
Amount of Tickets - 500
Price per ticket $31.50* ----------- $15,750.00 Grand Total
Price per student $15.00 ----------- $ 7,500.00 Amt. paid by students
Difference $15.75 ------------ $ 8,250.00 Amount paid by SAF

Regular Ticket Price - $57.95
Amount students save - 74.12%

SAF funds are used to cover a portion of the cost for students to purchase tickets.

*This price is used because I will be purchasing these tickets at a special early bird reduced price.
Itemized Matching Funds
$7,500 which is covered by the students
Open to all Campus?
Like years in the past, we will post flyers and signs on all of our building proposing the time I will be selling tickets. Also I will send a couple emails to all of the students informing them of this opportunity. I will sell tickets during the lunch hour and in the evening 5 days a weeks until all tickets are sold (approx. 1-3 weeks)
# of Students Benefit
If each student purchases 2 tickets (the max allowed), this allows 250 students to be impacted.
Enhance PSY
This proposal would help to create comradery within the student body. Because this event has been ongoing for a few years, students remember the opportunity to purchase tickets and take a break from the stresses of college life.
Comments
With cooperation with Matt Sutton, this event for the past couple years and have really seen the joy it has brought hundreds and hundreds of students.

We also feel that this is an excellent use of SAF funds and proves to students that these funds are used for them. At the minimum of 250 students who will benefit, the SAF break down comes to only $33 used on each student.

We thank you for your time and consideration of this proposal and allowing the continuation of this successful event.

Open to all Campus?
The room, viewable from the game room in the Community Center game room, is only available to those in SGA and club members. Upon seeing the condition of the new room, students may become encouraged to get involved in student activities. A more effective area will be credited for those that have access to the room. It will become a place that students will want to use to get their clubs together for meetings to work on SGA/club projects.
# of Students Benefit
The majority of students. Works to increase student involvement.
Enhance PSY
With enhancements to the SGA room, the room will become more desirable to students. Realizing that the room is available to those in SGA and clubs, it will increase student interest in getting involved. It will also give a feasible area to those already involved to work effectively and better the campus. Students can have the ability to learn from each other and to learn how to lead a small group of people if they are president. Promoting communication of students on campus will create a positive environment. Student involvement on campus continues to be a struggle and any increase in the chance that students will participate would be wonderful!
Desired Outcomes
The renovations could also impact the campus from the "background". Students working in clubs and in SGA function to bring events and changes to campus. Collaborating in a room set up to promote communication amongst groups will hopefully bring even more events and changes to our campus. Anything to promote student involvement is a plus!
Comments
Please take our proposal into consideration. Anything to help student involvement at Penn State York is a plus!

The HDFS 445 class is holding its first ever lunch time panel which follows the guidelines prescribed in the course to complete the Life Trajectories Project. The goal of this panel is to have several respected speakers come to Penn State York and offer their advice on the paths they took that helped them arrive in their current positions that relate to the majors offered at Penn State York. We invite anyone from the campus to join us. The speakers will be from within our area. The goal of this project is to gain a more indepth understanding of how one develops as an adult beyond the classroom. The following are a list of speakers we hope to have on our panel:

Rick Azzaro - Director of YWCA/Access sYork
Robert Simpson - Crispus Attucks, CEO
M. Joseph Rocks - NHS Human Services, Chairman&CEO
Marie Del Rey - Childgood, Publisher
Randy Freedman - Jewish Community Center, Executive Director

Alternative Speakers- (Ike Hileman, Bell Socialization Director; Greg Loop, Vice President of Children's Home of York; George Eckenrode, Director of Family Child Resources; Phil Pilandro, Directer of Veterans Affairs; Steve Warren, Director of County Mental Health and Intellectual Disabilities; Raymond Rosen, Vice President of Operations for York Hospital)

We contacted several other locations, (ie, Jimmy Johns - $250 for comparable sandwich platters) and additional options from Subway (ie. Lunchboxes or Party Subs @ $275) The Subway Platters provided the most options with condiments, as well as the best pricing and professional presentation.
Itemized Matching Funds
None
Open to all Campus?
The event is open to anyone on campus and the information and advice will be beneficial to students beyond the HDFS major, as it will offer assistance in the development of oneself in the career world. The HDFS 445 class has been divided into several committees, all tasked with various responsibilities. More specifically, there has been a group specifically assigned to advertise and promote this event around campus. We hope to spread the word, not only through flyers and with the help of the HDFS club, but by word of mouth and excitement that our class shares in planning this event.
# of Students Benefit

Enhance PSY
This event puts our students directly in contact with CEOs and directors in the community. It will help foster the development of contacts that will help our students be successful beyond the classroom. Though this is a class assignment, the networking possibilities and potential gains in advice and information will prove priceless to our students future and success.
Desired Outcomes
Our event looks to improve students' knowledge of the career field and their own development through adulthood. It is important to learn what will happen when we have finished here at Penn State and our panel is aimed at allowing students to see the Life Trajectories of professionals in the area.

The need that is being addressed is that of retention of our students. Campus enrollments have decreased over the last six years from 1,672 in 2006 to 1,208 in 2012. Taking a snapshot of York student retention from the end of Fall 2007 through Fall 2008 for students entering the campus in Fall 2007, the retention rate is fairly strong (87.5% for non-science students) for students who entered with EIs ranging from 2.75 through 3.74 (our highest value). However, the retention rate significantly drops for students below this range. For example, only 68.6% of the students with an EI range of 2.64 - 2.7 were retained. A very large pool of students who are "at-risk" are not returning to us. This compounds the larger problem of declining enrollments that has been experienced over the past 10 years. The bottom line -- we have fewer students coming to the campus in the first place, and we have trouble retaining many of the students who do come to us.
The donor for this program would like to see this mentor program run on a business model. That entails accountability and reward. Mentors are not academic tutors (we already have those, and these should be chosen based on different criteria) but should work on study skills, time management, school adjustment issues, be cheerleaders and provide support. They should be chosen not necessarily because they have high gpas but because they are a special population with survival and life skills to share.
Itemized Request
Personnel resources needed: 10 mentors, 20 mentees, 3 faculty/staff to oversee and support 3 mentor/mentee groups, 1 staff point person (Associate Director, Student Affairs)

Financial resources needed:
Mentor training (2 hours per mentor) 20@$10 x 2hours $ 400
Kick-off/get-acquainted event $ 400
10 mentors w/2 mentees each, meeting 2x/month x 3 months

Lunches w/mentors/mentees: ($7.50) 20 students/mentor meetings
($15 a lunch) ($45) x 3 months $ 900
Unanticipated expenses $ 250
TOTAL $5150


Itemized Matching Funds
$2000 for awards to mentors whose mentees achieve 2.5 gpa at the end of the semester will be given a $100 award, above and beyond their hourly pay
Open to all Campus?
The Mentor Program committee will reach out to faculty and staff for suggestions for our ten mentors. We are looking for students who have struggled themselves before finding their academic way and are willing to share their expereinces. Any student can volunteer as a mentee, but our target population will be first year students whose first semester gpa's are between 1.8 - 2.2.
# of Students Benefit
This is a pilot program. We would like to start with 10 mentors and 20 mentees. If the program is successful (66% of mentees reach academic goal), the donor will consider increasing matching funds for next fall

To allow Penn State York students to attend the dance marathon and support our local dancers as well as other dancers. The University-wide event is to raise money for children fighting pediatric cancer. Last year the event raised more than $10 million for the Four Diamonds Fund at the Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital. Our campus is well on the way to breaking the campus record in fundraising for this event.
Itemized Request
Six hotel rooms for two nights - $90 per room, per night - Total $1,140

Bus or van transpotation for stduents who want to attend THON - $1,200
(mode of transportation will be determined based on the number of studetns who will attend)

Itemized Matching Funds
Student Government Association (SGA) is covering half the cost - $1,140
Open to all Campus?
Posters, emails, news releases, announcements at SGA and other campus events, Facebook, Twitter, and Stall Street Journal.
# of Students Benefit
There are more than 30 students active in Penn State York's THON group right now right now so at very least, that number will benefit. All students are invited to participate so there is the potential for dozens more to benefit and learn more about the battle against pediatric cancer and THON.
Enhance PSY
Because THON is a Penn State tradition and the world's largest student-run philantrophy, it benefits our campus in showing that were are concerned members of the community and committed to community service. Prospective students can see how involved Penn State York students are and this can have a positive impact on their decision to attend the campus and Penn State. THON is a positive event and the publicity surrounding it is a wonderful boost for the campus at all levels.
Desired Outcomes
Students who attend THON will have a better understanding about the impact of pediatric cancer and will see community service in action. Thousands of people volunteer selflessly at THON and this is a great lesson for students to see. In addition, our participation in THON truly makes our campus a wonderful place.

This funding is vital to provide a THON Weekend opportunity for Penn State York stduents.

This was a very fulfilling experience for the students who went last year. It always is. Students learn to develop inter- and intra-personal skills. They learn about leadership. They learn about specific organizations and opportunities within the institution. It also provides a unique opportunity for students to network between students from other campuses.

This experience is like no other at Penn State - students have an opportunity to expand their boundaries and interact with students from all walks of life. The environment created is one that encourages each participant to step out of their comfort zone, learn, and have fun in the process.

This will be advertised in the SSJ, on posters, email, through SAF and SGA, and all clubs. Last year, our campus took 9 individuals - we aim to take our full allotment of 12 this year.
# of Students Benefit
12 will go but the impact will be felt campus-wide.
Enhance PSY
As you can see from previous answers, diversity and education are covered in depth during this event. Rumor has it that the conference theme will focus on character, conscience, and social responsibility. There are roughly 8-10 educational sessions that all students participate in where they learn anything from the basics of managing clubs to the idiosyncrasies of the Penn State system to philosophical discussions of ethics and leadership.

Further, this can actually be seen as a retention initiative, as increased engagement for participants and their peers will benefit the campus as well.
Desired Outcomes
Students will be able to identify their leadership skills, be able to encourage their peers to take advantage of opportunities on campus. Additionally, they will bring back materials and ideas and implement them on this campus. Past participants are extremely active on campus - more so than before they attended. It also gives the participants the opportunity to recruit new students for the clubs with the skills they've learned.

The conference leaders incorporate various assessment methods to ensure that student learning and development occur (this is beyond a simple satisfaction survey).
Comments
Thank you for funding this last year, and for considering it for 2013.

Past students highly recommend the SLC for any and all who desire to better their Penn State experience and overall life skills.

The vote was 9 approve, 0 deny, 0 abstain.

The Allocation Board was concerned about funding something that was clearly going to be utilized by athletics a majority of the time. A similar proposal was denied in the past, but the Board saw fit to fund half of this proposal, because while they will be limited, there will be other uses for this table. It will definitely improve the aesthetics of the basketball and volleyball games.

The course is designed to give understanding to project implementing. As a class we constructed a survey to become aware of campus climate; what things are going well and what needs improvement. We are processing the information from the survey and plan to host an event to present the information to the school and community. At the end of the project we would like to have changed at least one thing on campus that the students would like to see improved.

The event’s theme will be a “blue tie event” evening. Where students, faculty, staff and community member can show their Penn State pride and learn about the information we gather for our campus. The event will also give students a chance to speak up for themselves about the change they would like to see on campus. This “blue tie” evening will be December 10th starting at 6pm and will be held in the community room. We will have food and entertainment. We have already reached out to the community and other resources for the event. There are still some expenses that we need funds for. We are requesting $500 to cover food cost, decorations, and entertainment cost.

This event will present to the students and local community what we have found which came directly from their own voices. We will than use the event as a stepping stone to present ideas to community memeber and administration memeber about the change the students would like to see on campus, in hopes to implement some change in new programs and other things on campus. Our slongan for the project is "you speak up and we will speak out"
Desired Outcomes
This event and entire project is for the student of this campus. As a class we want to change campus climate for the better and we don't just want to suggest our own ideas we want to know how we can help the majority of the student bodies voices to be heard. At this event students will be able to voice their opinions, see what other students have felt about campus climate and also have a chance to hear from and talk to administration members. The event will be set up as a round table discussion for networking and socializing, there will be a photo booth are so that people can show there pann state spirit. We want people to feel that unity and importance of each indiviual at the event to get an understanding of how campus climate could change for the better.

Many students throughout each school day gather and congregate in the Game Room. This allows friendships to be made and a good area for students to relax and unwind from class. Over the past couple years, the pool cues and ping pong paddles have worn down from use and would like to take the opportunity to replace them since the ping pong table and pool table are constantly in use. Providing students these simple, yet fun aspects to their college experience is just a small step in helping retention here at Penn State York.
Itemized Request
Set of 4-6 pool cues (sticks) - $100
Pool cue chalk (box of 12) - $10
Pool stick bridge - $20
Ping Pong Paddles (set of 4) - $40

As mentioned above, there really isn't an area where students can truly hang out, unwind, be a little loud, and play a couple games with their friends in the process on campus. That is what the Game Room accomplishes in a retention effort. This purchase is just to provide routine maintenance to the items that are used in the Game Room.
Desired Outcomes
The main outcome of this proposal is that students will be able to enjoy the Game Room more with fully functioning equipment, not broken pool cues or tattering ping pong paddles.

We believe that the play will help show the diversity in the way that people can work together on a project that is not required of them. It helps them to show what they are most passionate about and love to show the outlying community. We want to be able to invite that outlying community in and show what a wonderful campus this is and to show what the theater group is allowed to do and spread their wings.
Desired Outcomes
As a student run club we all learn how the theater works. What different roles each and everyone is required to know. Anything from being an actor to directing and stage work.
Comments
I just hope that you see what a great opportunity that this is for our club and for York campus as a whole to see what the people in the theater love to do. A play has been done every semester for some years. So we would love to keep the tradition going and have it done well. Thank you.

Members of The Nittany Catwalk are organizing their annual fashion show in support of child abuse awareness month. The show originated back in 2011 in memory of Darisabel Baez, a young toddler who lived in York City. She was beaten to death in 2008 by her mother's boyfriend. The 2012 show focused on child abuse cases over the world, including, Africa, Australia, and Paris. A preliminary talk with outside staff / professionals showed that they are committed to producing a high quality show while keeping the cost as low as possible. They were all generous enough to quote discounted estimates for their time and talent being that the show is for such a good cause. Clothing stores such as Old Navy, Gap, 5-7-9, Macy's, New York Trends, and Maurices have distributed clothing for the fashion. Majority of the funding will support the utilization of the Pullo Center. Jason Williams, from Complete Video and Photography has agreed to send out his best team to capture footage backstage, and during the event. His team will take snap shots, and record the entire show for a discounted price. Copies of the photos will be available online for models, family, and friends to purchase, also at a discounted price. One CD copy of the photos as well as three DVD copies of the fashion show is included in his estimate. A professional team of hair and make-up artist in York has also agreed to contribute their services at a tremendously low rate. We are looking into purchasing stage props such as balloon archways, runway carpets, and draping effects to help glamorize the set. In the past the number of models has ranged between 30-35 total. Without the help of an additional 20-25 people helping backstage the show would not be a success. We like to make sure there is an appropriate amount of food for everyone. The final amount of funding contributes to decorating the entrance The Pullo Center.
Itemized Request
$1,334 - Rental of The Pullo Center. This includes stage lighting, sound, and help from Pullo Staff. $600 - Professional photographer and videographer. Including 3 hours of event coverage, photo enhancements, video edits, and three DVD copies of entire show. $560 - Two professional hair stylist. $560 - Two professional make-up artist. $200 - Stage props decorations.

In the past, this event has been advertised in The York Daily Record, The York Dispatch, Twitter, Facebook, and the stall seat journal. We've also had an announcement link on the school's website. Flyers are not only distributed throughout the campus, but through the city. This includes daycares, restaurants, stores, and local libraries.
# of Students Benefit
The number of Penn State York student attendes for last year's fashion show was 47. An additional 17 students particpated as models, and 8 as backstage crew members. The total head count was over 270. We are establishing new methods to help make all of these numbers increase.
Enhance PSY
"Fashion for a Purpose" does just that. We produce an extravagant fashion show for all to see while raising money for The Lehman Center in York, PA. The Lehman Center provides a crisis nursery, art and play therapy, and family therapy for anyone in the York area. The director, Martha Martin attends the show every year and gives a more detailed speech on The Lehman Center services. The central theme for the third annual child abuse awareness show is "Knowing is everything." We plan to focus on different types of child abuse such physical, emotional, sexual, and neglect. We will discuss the events that occurred at University Park, keeping the victims in mind, and allowing the community to see our dedication to them.
Desired Outcomes
This event will benefit the student body in many different ways. Anyone can get involved! We are always looking for models, performers, and show assistants to help produce the event. Students will also be educated on child abuse awareness, and have the opportunity to meet special guest. Anyone who attends can expect nothing less of a good time. We'll have vendors, entertainment, and fashion all while supporting a great cause. This show is just another way to show our community, WE ARE PENN STATE!

Importance of the field trip

Recently, I sent out an online survey for my Bio-club members. After analyzing the results, majority of the students seemed very interested in Medicine and wanted to take a field trip to Mutter Museum. For this reason, taking this field trip will be very beneficial.

The Mutter Museum consists of beautiful preserved collections of anatomical specimens, pathological specimens, wax models, and antique medical equipment. In addition, this will be a great way to learn about the human body, diseases, treatments, and how all of this started. Also, the students will get a better understanding of medical sciences, yet expand their educational goals.

Lastly, A visit to the Museum offers a unique environment to learn more about health and medicine.
Itemized Request
The field trip will require a 26-passenger bus, which will cost approximately $1200. Currently, I am looking at other bus companies that are cheaper and cost less. Also, the field trip is open to the entire campus.
Itemized Matching Funds
$1000
Open to all Campus?
I am going to make flyers, posters, send emails, ask professor to make annoucement in their classes, and let every student know with the help of Student Government Association.
# of Students Benefit

In addition, this will be a great way to learn about the human body, diseases, treatments, and how all of this started. Also, the students will get a better understanding of medical sciences, yet expand their educational goals.

After taking a field trip to Mutter Museum, the students may start a research project with their Science faculty on a perticular subject, which they found interesting at the museum. Also, for those students that are not Science major, may gian interest in Science because of all the specimens, wax models, and such.


In conclusion, I think this field trip would be great benefit to the Biology club for you to approve funding. The students will definitely learn a lot from this experience.
Desired Outcomes
I understand by taking this field trip to Mutter Museum, will not exactly make our campus a wonderful place to be. However, this field trip will definitely increase a students interest in medicine field.

If a students decides to go to Mutter Musuem, they get to look at slides of 46 microscope slides, each containing slices from the brain of Albert Einstein, PhD. In addition, the students get to talk to other professor and ask any questions. Also, there are a lot of other speicmens, research, exibitions, and shops.

I think this field trip would be great benefit to the Biology club/Penn Sate York students for you to approve funding. The students will definitely learn a lot from this experience.

Penn State York students would be doing the lay-out, writing stories, taking photos, etc., and gaining valuable experience in the communication field. The Nittany News would serves as a vehicle for informing the entire campus community about upcoming events, noteworthy news, and other features. The publication serves as a way to keep the campus community informed and connected as well as provide a forum for student work. In addition, members of "Any Other Word, "Penn State York's online literary magazine, will supply one page of content for the printed piece. The online magazine has had a difficult time getting people to their site to see the publication. The Nittany News would allow students to be published.
Itemized Request
The cost of publishing 1,000 newspapers (eight pages) tab size, with spot color and an opportunity for a color photo on the front page of the newspaper, ranges between $480-$600 per issue. The price is from MediaOnePA who would be printing the newspaper. A copy of the bid from MediaOnePA can be supplied upon request. If we publish fewer than seven issues, the cost would decrease.

# of Students Benefit
1,000 copies of the newspaper would be distributed on campus and there is the potential for more than the number printed to see the piece.
Enhance PSY
Topics of stories can encompass topics including everything from diversity (years ago The Nittany News featured Unity Week in a publication) to community service. THON has been featured as have many of the community service activities done by the campus over the years from Toys for Tots to Habitat for Humanity and the Heifer Project. The newspaper is an excellent "take home" piece for prospective stduents to get a feel for what happens at the campus.
Desired Outcomes
Students will become more familiar with what is happening on campus, get to know faculty, staff and their fellow students through feature stories, learn about our athletic teams, and get to know about all the excellent programs happening on campus. The impact can also be higher attendance at campus events, SGA, special programs, and more participation from students in the events at the Pullo Family Performing Arts Center. Each issue will include a Student Government Association (SGA) message which will provide SGA with a vehicle for keeping the student body aware of what it is doing, not just those who attend the meetings. Clubs and organizations will also have the opportunity to promote their events and activities.

We hope the event will assist with sustainability, showing students what we can accomplish and enjoy together on campus. Hopefully through this students will realize what we can accomplish and put into action and will want to be involved with crafting more activities. The Hispanic Student Association looks to celebrate and incorporate Hispanic culture. The club teaches and shares aspects of the MANY diverse Spanish cultures that reign from South America, Central America, North America and Europe. Our goal is to educate, celebrate, and incorporate Hispanic culture. As far as increasing enrollment, this event does not necessarily pertain to that concern. But, the HSA participates in Open House, and is available and always more than willing to participate or inspire events that may help increase enrollment. With this event, and the goal of the HSA in general, is to enhance Penn State York. How will we do this? But involving students of all cultures and backgrounds to come together to share and celebrate differences by being able to explore another culture, Hispanic culture to be exact.



Desired Outcomes
Our intended outcome is to share the many aspects and joys of Hispanic culture. Students will be able to do so through music, food, and entertainment. The impact on students we are hoping is to be tremendous, inspiring, and enjoyable.

Each year, all of the Penn State campuses get an allotment of tickets for one Penn State Football game, known as All-U Day. It is the responsibility of the campus to secure transportation for its students and we feel that this is an important request so that students are not driving themselves since State College is 2 hours away. The seating capacity of the mini-coach is 30 passengers, which will satisfy those students wishing to use the campus arranged transportation.
Itemized Request
30 passenger coach bus through Executive Coach, Inc for $1,475.00. This was the only company that had availability that day.

All-U Day tickets are available to all Penn State York students and has been advertised through e-mail, scrolling desktop ads, and flyers. Any student that purchases a ticket may use the mini-coach if they'd like.

Enhance PSY
This is one event where all of the Penn Staters across the system can get together in spirit and community to celebrate Penn State, our Football program, and one another. The half-time presentation representing each commonwealth campus is the highlight of the game where two (2) of our students will be on the field holding the Penn State York flag.
Desired Outcomes
Funding for this transportation will allow students to travel to Beaver Stadium together without the worry of having to drive back and forth early in the morning and afterwards considering it will be a long day. This provides safety and security to all that will partake on this trip.

Details
Members of The Nittany Catwalk are organizing their annual fashion show in support of child abuse awareness month. The show originated back in 2011 in memory of Darisabel Baez, a young toddler who lived in York City. She was beaten to death in 2008 by her mother's boyfriend. The 2012 show focused on child abuse cases over the world, including, Africa, Australia, and Paris. A preliminary talk with outside staff / professionals showed that they are committed to producing a high quality show while keeping the cost as low as possible. They were all generous enough to quote discounted estimates for their time and talent being that the show is for such a good cause. Clothing stores such as Old Navy, Gap, 5-7-9, Macy's, New York Trends, and Maurices have distributed clothing for the fashion. Majority of the funding will support the utilization of the Pullo Center. Jason Williams, from Complete Video and Photography has agreed to send out his best team to capture footage backstage, and during the event. His team will take snap shots, and record the entire show for a discounted price. Copies of the photos will be available online for models, family, and friends to purchase, also at a discounted price. One CD copy of the photos as well as three DVD copies of the fashion show is included in his estimate. A professional team of hair and make-up artist in York has also agreed to contribute their services at a tremendously low rate. We are looking into purchasing stage props such as balloon archways, runway carpets, and draping effects to help glamorize the set. In the past the number of models has ranged between 30-35 total. Without the help of an additional 20-25 people helping backstage the show would not be a success. We like to make sure there is an appropriate amount of food for everyone. The final amount of funding contributes to decorating the entrance The Pullo Center.
Itemized Request
$2,500 - Rental of The Pullo Center. Including stage lighting, sound, help from Pullo Staff.
$800 - Professional photographer and videographer. Including 3 hours of event coverage, photo enhancements, video edits, and three DVD copies of entire show.
$560 - Two professional hair stylist.
$560 - Two professional make-up artist.
$500 - Stage props and equipment.
$400 - Food and beverages for models, and backstage crew.

In the past, this event has been advertised in The York Daily Record, The York Dispatch, Twitter, Facebook, and the stall seat journal. We've also had an announcement link on the school's website. Flyers are not only distributed throughout the campus, but through the city. This includes daycares, restaurants, stores, and local libraries.
# of Students Benefit
The number of Penn State York student attendes for last year's fashion show was 47. An additional 17 students particpated as models, and 8 as backstage crew members. The total head count was over 270. We are establishing new methods to help make all of these numbers increase.
Enhance PSY
"Fashion for a Purpose" does just that. We produce an extravagant fashion show for all to see while raising money for The Lehman Center in York, PA. The Lehman Center provides a crisis nursery, art and play therapy, and family therapy for anyone in the York area. The director, Martha Martin attends the show every year and gives a more detailed speech on The Lehman Center services. The central theme for the third annual child abuse awareness show is "Knowing is everything." We plan to focus on different types of child abuse such physical, emotional, sexual, and neglect. We will discuss the events that occurred at University Park, keeping the victims in mind, and allowing the community to see our dedication to them.
Desired Outcomes
This event will benefit the student body in many different ways. Anyone can get involved! We are always looking for models, performers, and show assistants to help produce the event. Students will also be educated on child abuse awareness, and have the opportunity to meet special guest. Anyone who attends can expect nothing less of a good time. We'll have vendors, entertainment, and fashion all while supporting a great cause. This show is just another way to show our community, WE ARE PENN STATE!

SAF Committee Decision

Notes
What happened last year?

Could they seek funds elsewhere (SGA) or do fundraising?

Could Harrisburg help?

They could put on a quality show for a little less money.

Could they re-work their numbers and ask SGA and then come back to us?

Could we approve a lesser amount to give them a foundation from which to go forward?

The funds proposed above is for an HP Designjet 130 Printer machine with supplies of Ink and Paper that should last for one academic semester or more. When determining product/price, we decided on the HP 130 due to its capability to produce high quality posters/banners for a reasonable cost. When looking at other companies, such as Variquest, we were getting prices 2x/3x more expensive than what we are getting the HP 130 for. The main cost for such a printer, however, is on ink and paper, which is why a bulk order was purchased so that we can determine how much we use within a given semester so we can be more accurate the following semester/year.
Event Purpose
In order to help communicate better around campus, we feel like ordering a Poster Printer now for all Student Organizations to use would be a perfect fit. Students can come into our office with an already designed flyer and print it within our office. This will aid in getting the word out of Student Affairs and Student Organization events, meetings, etc. and in turn, hopefully create more involvement at our events by finding different ways of getting the word out to the campus community. We will also utilize the A-frames that can be placed outside to advertise campus events and news.
Itemized Request
HP Designjet 130 Printer - $1105.00
Poster Printer Paper - 15 rolls ($17)x15= $255.00

This affects students directly by those that are involved in clubs and organizations that want to better publicize what they have going on throughout the year to students, faculty, and staff.

We are proposing two Fujitsu ScanSnap fi-6010N iScanner scanners. Full specifications for this device can be viewed at: http://www.fujitsu.com/us/services/computing/peripherals/scanners/scansnap/ss_fi-6010n.html. The quoted cost for this device was $2,502.08 as provided by ALPS, the campus’s primary printer supply and maintenance vendor. The total cost for the scanners is $5,004.16. In addition, the science center currently does not provide any student printing capability. A new printer can be placed there for the cost of about $850.
Event Purpose
The Student Activity Fee is currently being used to provide a coin operated copier machine in the Lair of the Romano building. The fee pays to lease the copier and students are required to insert dimes in order to make copies. Students have indicated that they are not satisfied with this solution as most do not carry dimes to make copies. In addition, a similar copier that used to be available in the bookstore was removed years ago due to lack of use.

To help eliminate the need for students to carry dimes and increase the value of the money being spent for this sort of service, the campus would like to suspend the lease of the copier and instead install network scanners that would be capable of scanning a stack of papers and emailing the student a PDF. This PDF could then be easily distributed using webmail to classmates or friends and/or printed at any printer at home or on campus. Campus printing would be subject to the typical charges for printing after the 450 free pages per semester limit is reached. This would be a more favorable solution to the coin-operated copier because of its increased convenience and potential for saving paper when hard-copy copies are not necessary.

As an additional opportunity of this proposal, we would also like to request funding for a printer to be installed in the common area of the science center. Currently, there isn’t a printer that is accessible to students in this building.
Itemized Request
(Qty 2) Fujitsu ScanSnap fi-6010N iScanner scanners @ $2,502.08 each
(Qty 1) Lexmark TS 652DN printer @ approx $850
Total Cost = $5,854.16.
(the quote for the scanner can be seen at http://www.personal.psu.edu/~jpr156/CampusScanner.pdf. Cost estimation on the printer is calculated based on purchase of previous common area printers)

Other shows such this one has been success in the past drawing a large crowd of people. This event would be no different and would help bring many of the community folks in to appreciate the talent and hard work of our students. This would also be a great moral booster for the Black Student Union which is currently seeking to have some form of identity to the club, and a sense of accomplishing something on campus. This would help bring in more members to the club and make them more aware of the club on campus
Itemized Request
The majority of the funding will support the utilization of the Pullo Center. A preliminary talk with their staff showed that they are committed to producing a show with high quality while keeping the cost as low as possible. they are charging us just $2334.00 total.

The remaining $166 will go to support ancillary costs as well as other needed materials
Itemized Matching Funds
There is tremendous staff support for this event; many folks are giving their time and talent. Additionally, the Pullo Center is willing to work with us to reduce the cost significantly. While this initiative is supported in part by the Diversity Committee, they do not have funds to put to match due . We won't be able to proceed without support from SAF

The funds will go toward all of the types of the competition as well as food for 400 people.
Event Purpose
This is a competitive event in which students will register in teams of 2o-50 and be assigned a color. Each team will compete in various physical, mental, and artistic competitions. Teams compete against teams of other color shirts. The event is intended to build campus community spirit, engage students in team building, and to relieve stress the week before finals. It is my hope that this will become an annual event, and perhaps even an event in which we can compete against other local Penn State campuses. The title will transfer from year to year building friendly rivalry and interest in participation.
