As I have done in the past thirteen years I am requesting support for students going on this spring break trip to Portugal. I request $500 per student (a total amount of $1500). This money will be used to defray travel costs for students.
Event Purpose
The cultural experience of going on an educational trip to another country has lifelong benefits. Students experience a culture outside their ownn comfort zone and language. They become more self-confident and self-aware of their own culture. This personal growth and enrichment fulfill one of Penn State's goals for our students.
Itemized Request
$500 per student (total of $1500) will go toward student travel expenses (airfare and lodging)The cost of the trip is $2500 per person.
Itemized Matching Funds
Students will apply for the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Grant awarded to course-embedded trips. This grant is for $500 and is a competitive grant which looks at GPA and financial need.
Open to all Campus?
This trip to Portugal and Spain is open to all Penn State students. It has been advertised in the Stall Seat Journa and detailed information is available on our International Trips website.
# of Students Benefit
Cost is always an issue with students registering for these spring break trips outside the US. At this point I have three students who would benefit.
Comments
Students will receive this financial support from SAF committee after a campus presentation in April or during Unity Day week. I wish to thank the SAF committee for their continued support of travel abroad opportunities for our students.

Late night breakfast has already been funded through SAF - as a tradition of supporting our students during finals week.
Event Purpose
I'd like to ask for $400 more, so that we can also provide pancakes and sausages. There is tremendous value in this event for students, but also regarding the expenditure. We anticipate serving roughly 200 students, so for $850, we are reaching many students at a low per student cost.

The first $450 was to go to bacon and egg sandwiches, toast, donuts, and prizes. I'm asking for $400 more for pancakes and sausage.

$12 - Jazz concert at Preservation Hall
$24 - boat tour of the bayou
$15 - Vampire tour of old city
Event Purpose
The students and chaperones, Ann Fetterman and Josie Moore, will spend each weekday doing restoration work in New Orleans. Even though it is six years after Hurricane Katrinaq hit, there are still neighborhoods that need to be rebuilt. This activity gives students a chance to volunteer, to help another community, and to learn about a fascintating culture. I show videos about New Orlean's history, culture, music and food the month before the trip. This prepares the students for what they are about to see and bonds them as a group before we leave.
Itemized Request
SAF funds will be used to off-set the cost of airfare and room and board for the students
Itemized Matching Funds
We will be selling pretzel sandwiches and auctioning off a handmade quilt to offset the cost of expenses for the student

Comments
This will be Penn State York's third Alternative Spring break trip to New Orleans. I think this trip is especially important this year when we need to show pride in our university and present a positive face to the larger community. Without SAF support, the students will not be able to afford this opportunity.

Details
This is a showcase event where folks from on-campus and in the community can come together to celebrate Black History Month with performances from local talent. Last year we had the Poet Laureate from York, step groups, vocalists, spoken word artists, musicians, a fashion show, and the like.
Event Purpose
We drew a couple hundred attendees last year. This year, with more time to plan, we plan to draw more. We are including an American Idol sort of event that will have performers audition for a place in the show. This preliminary event will occur in January, and we are targeting local high school students. Other acts for the event in February would likely be similar to last year. The response last year was very positive, so we assume to have great buy-in again this year.

We have a great diversity of students, staff, and faculty on this campus. This is an amazing opportunity for the campus to highlight that diversity, and honor the multiple social identities that we all carry, but specifically, this event will highlight the tremendously rich history of Black culture over the years.
Itemized Request
The majority of the funding will support the utilization of the Pullo Center. A preliminary meeting with their staff showed that they are committed to producing a show with high quality while keeping the cost as low as possible. For the preliminary auditions, and for the event in January, they are charging us just $2500 total. This includes all of their staff, the space, lights, sound, and all the trimmings. This is indeed a bargain, as they have reduced their costs significantly for these events. The remaining $500 will go to support ancillary costs such as paying an honorarium to the main act, and securing prizes for the Black History trivia that will be a part of the event as well.
Itemized Matching Funds
There is tremendous staff support for this event; many folks are giving their time and talent. Additionally, the Pullo Center is working 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 to the budget cuts this year. We won't be able to proceed without support from SAF.
Open to all Campus?
The Pullo Center will be advertising this free event. Stall Seat Journal, email, Facebook, Twitter, and large posters will also advertise the event. We'll also be asking faculty members to support the event through their classroom teaching, as applicable.

Details
Five of the students in ENGL 221 will present a video of The Second Shepherds' Play, which is a late medieval nativity play. This project is for a grade for all of the students, and fulfills the Honors requirement for one of them. I wish to provide my 16 students and any attendees a sweet and holiday-oriented snack, which is what the sole use of the funding I'm requesting.
Event Purpose
This video will provide members of our community perhaps their first exposure to medieval literature. It will also be a break, but an academic one, from the otherwise grueling last week of classes. Most important, students will have the opportunity for students to demonstrate their learning outside of the classroom and to wider audience--the goal of learning should not always be the grade.
Itemized Request
I have a quote from the Lion's Den that I will submit to Cynthia Jones. It will cost $4.00/person to provide sugar cookies, chocolate chip cookies, peppermint brownies,and coffee, hot cider, and water. The room holds a maximum of 40 people; I have therefore budgeted for 35 people, or about twice the number of students in the class.
Itemized Matching Funds
None available.
Open to all Campus?
I have already sent an invitation to all faculty and staff and ask that they extend it to students. I'll ask to have it included in the Stall Seat Journal and whatever e-mails to students that seem appropriate.

Event Purpose
These videos will be addressed to next year's incoming students, both regular- and dual-enrolled, and in highlighting problems and solutions that students face, could help retain students who might otherwise fall through the cracks.
Itemized Request
I have a quote from the Lion's Den; I'm not sure how to submit it. It will cost $4.25/person to provide bagels with cream cheese and butter, bananas and clementines, yogurt, and coffee, tea, and water. Given the earliness of this event, I have budgeted for 45 people, or 10 people outside the members of my class.

Past attendance has ranged from 50 - 60 students (60 students is the max for the venue)
Comments
As of last year Chancellor Rodney took all new income from the IST Surcharge fund and moved it from IST to the General Campus Budget; hence the residual dollars in the IST budget (which will no longer be replenished) must be used to pay for this event. When we run out of residual money, IST will no longer be able to sponsor this event. The extent to which SAF can supplement residual IST funds determines how long the program can continue as it has in the past

Itemized Request
The total cost for the bus is $963.00 + $4.00 for the Walters' special exhibit tour.

Comments
In previous years I had 30+ students participate in this trip. Instead of using a bus, I relied on students driving themselves, but I have to change the transportation mode due to stricter guidelines from UP. The visit to the WAlters will be even more important this year due to the special exhibit. I will personally take them on a guided tour through some other sections of the museum to save the expense for another guided tour.

Little Lion Programming is a designated time in Homecoming on Saturday in which we are bringing in Carnival Games and prizes for younger children to play as their parents are able to enjoy the other festivities that will be occurring all over campus. We have been in contact with Thomas Ball Entertainment in which we have recruited 11 carnival games for the price of $1500, and are looking to have $500 worth of prizes. In the event that we have left over prizes, we will save them for later events which may require them, potentially next year.
Event Purpose
Homecoming itself is the celebration of our campus community. We are hoping that the Little Lion Programming will help bring more alumni families onto campus knowing that their children will also have something fun to do. Clubs will be involved doing their own tables and activities, but these games will be staffed by the Entertainment Corporation so that potentially PSY students will also be able to play as well.

Carnival Games - $1500

We will use this funding in order to purchase food and beverages, as well as decorations and the DJ for the Homecoming Dance. The DJ from Harrisburg is $350, so we need the remaining $150 in order to purchase food for students attending, as well as decorate.
Event Purpose
This event is to celebrate Penn State York's first homecoming weekend. We want the student body to feel as though they have something to look forward to since other forms of entertainment on Saturday night are either out of their age limit (Concert at Heritage Hills with Velveeta is 21+) or requires extra funding (Leighann Rhymes concert). We want this event to be free to students as long as they have their PSU ID, and we want to be able to build a connection throughout the student body while celebrating Penn State Pride.
Itemized Request
The DJ we have hired is $350.
We are looking to use the remaining $150 to purchase decorations (balloons, streamers, etc.) as well as food and beverages which include but are not limited to: chips, pretzels, sodas, water, dessert foods. We are not planning on having "main course" foods, so students should look to purchase dinner at the homecoming event or at a place of their choice.
Itemized Matching Funds
0
Open to all Campus?
We will allow students to attend as long as they bring their Penn State ID. There will be no admission cost, and we hope that our hired DJ will bring about a "club" or "homecoming dance" vibe so that students will want to not only stay on campus all day for earlier Homecoming Events, but come back to the school to hang out with the rest of their student body. The Nittany Catwalk will also be doing a fashion show in the middle of the dance which will require lots of student support. We are also working on having a homecoming court as well.

Since the first week of school I have had about 8 people come to me complaining about the game room. At first I brushed it off, but sitting in the Sga office everyday all day, I cannot tell you how many people I have heard griping about the stuff.

According to the students it is the small stuff like this that does not go unnoticed. They love that Arnold big events and everything, but THIS is what they have wanted so long.

We would keep them in the sga office and student affairs' so when a ball breaks students can get a new one without needing to find quarters or spend money.

They don't want to waste money on a new pool table, but yet they want the table to have some friction, so the balls tool accordingly.

These funds will provide a block of 39 tickets for PSY students, along with one ticket for a faculty member. All students will have access to a special 30 minute talk back session with the performers immediately following the show.
Event Purpose
This event will give students an opportunity to enjoy a show at the Pullo that relates to U.S. politics--and to their coursework. Dr. Dianne Creagh is going to offer going to the show as an extra credit option for interested students in her American History courses. 20 tickets will be made available to her, which her students can acquire on a first-come, first-serve basis. (Note alternative opportunities for extra credit will be offered to those who cannot secure tickets). One ticket will be for Dr. Creagh, so she can attend the show and 1.) bond with her students and 2.) comment on the show's relation to her course in subsequent lectures and/or activities.

The additional 19 tickets will be made available to the campus at large, again on a first-come, first-serve basis. This will ensure the event is not limited merely to a few classes, while at the same time promoting dialogue about the relevance of U.S. History courses among students who might not have been able to take the course.
Itemized Request
$36X40 tickets=$720
Itemized Matching Funds
There are no matching funds available for this kind of initiative. However, the Pullo Center has generously arranged to have the performers donate some of their time to work exclusively with our students. Though a dollar amount cannot be easily assigned to this sort of offer, it does have a definite worth since not every Capitol Steps performance includes this feature.
Open to all Campus?
Announcements will go out through TWAY, in Dr. Creagh's classes, and through channels available to the Pullo to promote events on campus (i.e. as part of the fliers for the show on bulletin boards).
# of Students Benefit
The obvious answer is to easy: more than 40 students because this event will lead to discussion about politics and art (it is a show after all) on campus, which will in turn enhance the civic, cultural, and intellectual climate here. In addition, it is hoped that some students with comped tickets will bring in others who might be interested, again increasing the number of those who benefit from this event. .
Comments
Here is a brief description of Capitol Steps:

THIRTY YEARS AGO, the Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. In the years that followed, many of the Steps ignored the conventional wisdom ('Don't quit your day job!'), and although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience. Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded over 30 albums, including their latest, Desperate Housemembers and their special holiday release, Barackin' Around the Christmas Tree. They've been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard 4 times a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials. The Capitol Steps were born in December, 1981 when some staffers for Senator Charles Percy were planning entertainment for a Christmas party. Ronald Reagan was President when the Steps began, so co-founders Elaina Newport, Bill Strauss and Jim Aidala figured that if entertainers could become politicians, then politicians could become entertainers! Their first idea was to stage a nativity play, but in the whole Congress they couldn't find three wise men or a virgin! So, they decided to dig into the headlines of the day, and created song parodies & skits which conveyed a special brand of satirical humor that was as popular in Peoria as it was on Pennsylvania Avenue.

To learn more about Capitol Steps at the Pullo, please see here: http://pullocenter.yk.psu.edu/event_detail/224/Capitol_Steps

The cost of this endeavor is less than that of transportation alone to get 40 students to a comparable professional show in Baltimore or Harrisburg.

It is important to open doors between courses and the Pullo.

Please contact me if you require additional information about the merits of this event. Thank you for your consideration.

Event Purpose

Access to these performances will enliven the cultural and intellectual climate of the campus.

The offerings at the Pullo run the gamut, offering performances that showcase excellence in the arts; raise awareness of diversity; explore the boundaries between science and faith; share personal stories of education adversity; and more. Please see below for information on individual shows.
Itemized Request
1.) ROCK OF AGES
20 tickets @ 49.00 = $980.00
Its five-time, Tony Award® nominated smash-hit musical ROCK OF AGES, a hilarious, feel-good love story. In 1987 on the Sunset Strip, a small town girl met a big city rocker and in LAs most famous rock club, they fell in love to the greatest songs of the 80s. ROCK OF AGES, an arena-rock love story told through the mind blowing, face-melting hits of JOURNEY, NIGHT RANGER, STYX, REO SPEEDWAGON, PAT BENATAR, TWISTED SISTER, POISON, ASIA, WHITESNAKE and many more. Don’t miss this awesomely good time about dreaming big, playing loud and partying on!
2.) BRANDON HEATH
20 tickets @ 15.50 = $310.00
Life has changed a great deal for Brandon Heath since the release of his 2008 sophomore album What If We. The success of that project fueled by the massive No. 1 single Give Me Your Eyes, catapulted Heath into the consciousness of Christian music fans.
With a true songwriter’s gift of making the personal universal, Heath became a voice you wanted to listen to, both in terms of tone and content of his words. And has been rewarded for that work with numerous trips to the Dove Awards stage to claim trophies, including two consecutive years (2009 and 2010) as the Gospel Music Associations Male Vocalist of the Year.
When it came time for the GRAMMY-nominated artist to begin crafting the songs that make up this newest effort, titled Leaving Eden, one would assume his most comfortable part of the job songwriting would fall right into place. Fueled by collaboration, Brandon turned to his friends and fellow co-writers to help shape the new material. His first co-writing session was with award-winning songwriter/producer Jason Ingram, who previously teamed with Heath on their GMA 2009 Song of the Year hit, Give Me Your Eyes. The result is Leaving Eden’s first radio single, Your Love.
3.) S’WONDERFUL
20 tickets @ $33.00 = $660.00
'S Wonderful is an all singing, all dancing, musical revue that celebrates the genius of George and Ira Gershwin.
Incorporating 5 mini-musicals inspired by the real events occurring in and around the lives of the Gershwin brothers, this new musical theater revue illustrates their impact on the world then and now.
First its New York City in 1916 and Paris in the 1930's, followed by Hollywood in the 40's and New Orleans in the 50's. 'S Wonderful takes you on a ride to the different places, times and musical styles that made the Gershwin brothers the most successful songwriting team in the history of popular music.
Like a Technicolor® movie musical, S Wonderful paints a picture of nostalgia and entertainment while paying tribute to the incomparable songbook of George and Ira Gershwin. Featuring over 40 classic hits such as Lets Call the Whole Thing Off, Shall We Dance, Someone to Watch Over Me, and Rhapsody in Blue.
4.) GHOST HUNTERS
20 tickets @ $39.00 = $780.00
Ghost Hunters follows T.A.P.S., The Atlantic Paranormal Society, as they investigate locations across the United States with claims of haunting and paranormal activity. Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson, plumbers by trade, head up The Atlantic Paranormal Society. T.A.P.S. has pioneered a different approach to paranormal investigation. They go into a location seeking to disprove claims of paranormal activity, finding real-world explanations for these events.
Jason Hawes created The Atlantic Paranormal Society, or TAPS, with fellow plumber Grant Wilson. Both are part of a small, blue-collar Rhode Island community where many of the TAPS members were born and raised. His own highly personal paranormal experience (which he prefers not to discuss) prompted Jason to do more than wonder about an afterworld. He launched TAPS from a spare room of his apartment.
Jason met Grant more than a decade ago, and they remain best friends and co-workers to this day. Like Jason, Grant had a life-altering experience with the afterworld, and both prefer not to discuss the incidents. In doing the show, Grant has encountered human ("regular" ghosts) and inhuman (demons and such) hauntings. Grant is humble, self-assured and inquisitive as TAPS searches for answers, and he is comfortable with unsolved events. Through the years, Grant and Jason have not forgotten why they do what they do - to find answers for themselves, and to help others who have experienced paranormal activity but don't know what to do about it.
Steve Gonsalves is the TAPS technology manager and evidence analyst. It is his responsibility to train all TAPS members on how to use and maintain the team's wide range of high-tech equipment. As the technology manager, Steve oversees all members of the TAPS Tech team. Steve has been a public speaker and educator about paranormal phenomena for more than 10 years. He is also the co-founder of the TAPS publication, Paramagazine.
Join The Pullo Center for a two-hour ghost hunting presentation of chilling behind the scenes information that will make skeptics into believers. The presentation will include an unbelievable PowerPoint presentation of amazing paranormal cases, followed by a question and answer session with the audience.


5.) ADAM RICHMAN
20 tickets @ $45.00 = $900.00
See Adam Richman discussing his most amazing and delicious food experiences, followed by a cooking demonstration and question and answer session with the audience.
Adam grew up in the food Mecca of New York City and began his love affair with food early on; sampling all of the diverse culinary specialties The Big Apple had to offer. From samosas to sushi, even at a young age, Adam had a desire to taste it all.
Years later, as an undergraduate at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, Adam began a food journal to document the standout food establishments he was discovering throughout the Southeastern U.S. Though he majored in International Studies, his love of all things edible naturally drew him into the culinary world after graduation. Subsequently, he built a solid resume working in nearly every echelon of the restaurant world, from coast to coast and from the counter to the kitchen. Though he never trained professionally, Adam was able to gain invaluable on-the-job experience in the various restaurants he worked in.
After earning a Master's degree in Fine Arts from Yale University's School of Drama, Adam traveled the United States acting in many regional theatres. The nature of his work allowed him to feed his appetite for the best local dishes across America - all of which found their way into his food journal. In 2008 Adam began hosting Man v. Food for the Travel Channel, which quickly became their highest rated show. Aside from TV hosting, Adam has acted in numerous theater productions in NY and a variety of TV shows.
6.) LEANN RIMES
20 tickets @ $47.00 = $940.00
LeAnn Rimes has sold more than 37 million albums, won two Grammy Awards, three Academy of Country Music Awards and 12 Billboard Music Awards. Rimes is the youngest recipient of a Grammy Award, and was also the first country recording artist to win in the Best New Artist category. Rimes has placed 42 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, 13 of which are top-10 hits, and has scored numerous hit singles in her career, including Cant Fight the Moonlight which went #1 in 11 countries, and How Do I Live, which is the second longest charting song ever on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

13.) CELTIC NIGHTS
20 tickets @ $38.00 = $760.00
From the creators of Gaelforce Dance, the "unmissable two hour spectacular (that) has brought audiences to their feet all around the world" (The Guardian, England) comes a brand new show in celebration of song. Celtic Nights expertly weaves together the lilting melodies and plaintive lyrics of the rich Celtic heritage to tell the story of a people.

In this glittering production, six of Ireland’s most prominent vocal talents are complimented by six of its most accomplished step dancers, creating an exhilarating picture of a proud people who dared to dream big and doggedly carved out a home in the New World. In Celtic Nights, their story is told, through the power and majesty of music and the hypnotic fury of dancing feet.
14.) THE CAPITOL STEPS
20 tickets @ $36.00 = $720.00
THIRTY YEARS AGO, the Capitol Steps began as a group of Senate staffers who set out to satirize the very people and places that employed them. In the years that followed, many of the Steps ignored the conventional wisdom ("Don't quit your day job!"), and although not all of the current members of the Steps are former Capitol Hill staffers, taken together the performers have worked in a total of eighteen Congressional offices and represent 62 years of collective House and Senate staff experience.
Since they began, the Capitol Steps have recorded over 30 albums, including their latest, Desperate Housemembers and their special holiday release, Barackin' Around the Christmas Tree. They've been featured on NBC, CBS, ABC, and PBS, and can be heard 4 times a year on National Public Radio stations nationwide during their Politics Takes a Holiday radio specials.
The Capitol Steps were born in December, 1981 when some staffers for Senator Charles Percy were planning entertainment for a Christmas party. Ronald Reagan was President when the Steps began, so co-founders Elaina Newport, Bill Strauss and Jim Aidala figured that if entertainers could become politicians, then politicians could become entertainers! Their first idea was to stage a nativity play, but in the whole Congress they couldn't find three wise men or a virgin! So, they decided to dig into the headlines of the day, and created song parodies & skits which conveyed a special brand of satirical humor that was as popular in Peoria as it was on Pennsylvania Avenue.
Most cast members have worked on Capitol Hill; some for Democrats, some for Republicans, and others for politicians who firmly straddle the fence. No matter who holds office, there's never a shortage of material. Says Elaina Newport, "Typically the Republicans goof up, and the Democrats party. Then the Democrats goof up and the Republicans party. That's what we call the two-party system."
ALTHOUGH the Capitol Steps are based in Washington, DC, most of their shows are out-of-town or for out-of-town audiences, whether it's the National Welding Supply Association, a University audience, High Schoolers, or State Legislators. In fact, the Capitol Steps have performed for the last 5 Presidents (6, if you include Hillary). The only complaints the Steps seem to get are from politicians and personalities who are not included in the program!
The material is updated constantly. Current examples include the Tea Party's colorful invasion into the political spectrum ("Fun Fun Fun 'til Obama Takes Our Tea Bags Away") and the Democrats' plan to defeat the deficit ("Return to Spenders"). In addition, we offer our own take on such trending topics as the T.S.A. pat downs, Facebook and illegal immigration according to Arizonians! No matter who or what is in the headlines, you can bet the Capitol Steps will tackle both sides of the political spectrum and all things equally foolish. What more would you expect from the group that puts the "MOCK" in Democracy!
15.) SANDY HACKETT’S RAT PACK
20 tickets @ $35.00 = $700.00
Celebrating 50 years of The Rat Pack, Sandy Hackett's Rat Pack Show has been hailed as the next best thing to seeing the Rat Pack themselves. They were style with substance, swing with swagger, and a non-stop party that everyone wanted access to.
Now audiences can experience the most authentic Rat Pack Show in the world with exciting brand new arrangements of the classic songs everyone knows and loves. In addition, audiences will hear original, never-before-heard songs written by the late, legendary songwriter, Ron Miller and recorded voice-overs made exclusively for this show by Sandy's father, the late legendary comedian Buddy Hackett.
16.) EARL DAVID REED
20 tickets @ $26.50 = $530.00
Earl's dynamic presence, hard driving wit, and improvisational style delivers "an energy charged" performance that leaves comedy audiences wanting more. With appearances on the TONIGHT SHOW w/JAY LENO and HBO, comedian Earl David Reed has been in the spotlight throughout his comedy career. Earl has flexed his "funnies" on stages all across America and is a favorite in Las Vegas and Atlantic City and is on the rise. He has been seen on THE ARSENIO HALL SHOW, NBC FRIDAY NIGHT VIDEOS, SHOWTIME AT THE APOLLO, SHOWTIME, COMEDY CENTRAL, and is a two time Star Search winner!
See Earl David Reed live at his fourth Pullo Center performance!

Additional shows may be added during the season, leading to another request.
Itemized Matching Funds
No funds from other sources are availble. Unfortunately, in the current budget climate, there simply are not matching funds on this campus to help students partake in these sorts of activities. With that said, should probably be noted that one of the benefits of using shows at the Pullo is that neither the campus nor students need to pay for transportation costs. And if these events (or comparable ones) were being attended by 20 students in Baltimore or Harrisburg venues, the cost would be double, at least, due to transportation.
Open to all Campus?
The Pullo staff will incorporate supported programs into all advertising, on and off campus, paper and electronic. TWAY, in its latest iteration, remains a useful resource for communication with students as well.
# of Students Benefit
14 events, with 20 tickets each= 280. It is hoped that in some cases, students with free tickets will encourage others to attend, adding to this number.
Comments
The appeal of this proposal should be, in part, that it offers choice across a wide range of programming, which makes it unusual in campus offerings. (That is, if one show is supported, it appeals only to a niche audience; here we can offer many shows, appealing to different segments of the campus.)

The SAFC is encouraged to review the individual shows, and if any seem unlikely to draw 20 students, to remove them from the list it endorses.

That said, it is hoped that the SAFC will see the value of at least some of this programming for students interested in theatre, music, arts, politics, education, and communication.

Phi-lion-thropy
Donation of time, talent, and other resources, by the most awesome students in the world!

Support given to help Penn State York become even greater!

Phi-lion-thropy is philanthropy at its finest: students helping students. It spotlights that even small gifts from many can have a large impact for current students. The first initiative includes giving our students golden lion banks with a first preference for freshman and then opening it up to upper classman. By putting spare change in this bank throughout the year, it is our students chance to learn about the impact they can have at Penn State York. Besides the satisfaction of supporting Penn State, students who participate in the campaign at any level (yes, even a penny) will become eligible to receive the funds collected throughout the year. It doesn't matter how much you give, just that you participate at all! Phi-lion-thrapists will be helping to fund scholarships and book scholarships at the bookstore that will be awarded to Penn State York students.

Activities throughout the year will be orchestrated to collect donations. One event is our George Washington Birthday Bash (to be held on February 21 the day after President's Day and the day before George's real birthday) where students will bring a George Washington (a dollar bill) to the event, during the common lunch hour on campus, and after we collect all the George's, one or two of the student participants will receive a book scholarship based on the amounts collected at the bash - an immediate and direct result of their participation!

We all know that going to college is expensive, but the fact is that tuition only covers 34% of Penn State's annual budget. The rest comes from the state government, research grants, and generous donors who want to support the University. Nearly 80,000 alumni make gifts, big and small, to Penn State every year to support scholarships, campus facilities, student programs, and thousands of other areas that make our current students college experiences possible. Without this support, the University would be drastically different and would either have to cut programs and majors, or raise tuition even more. Our phi-lion-thropists don't have to give much, but giving at all shows that they care about Penn State and want to support the University and students like themselves.

There is a recognition group, the Golden Lion Society for Penn State alumni, who demonstrate extraordinary loyalty to Penn State by giving to the University for at least four years in a row or every year since graduation. Phi-lion-thropy is a new student initiative to encourage Penn State York students to start and continue to demonstrate a similar habit of supporting Penn State York during their tenure as students. Participation, and in future years - consistency, is what's important, not the size of the gift!

We ask the student activities committee to consider underwriting this new initiative at Penn State York,
Approximate costs for the sponsorship:
$2095: $770.00 for 325 banks, $500.00 for catering expenses for events, $325 for phi-lion-thropy pins for participants

Funds will cover a portion of the cost for students to attend events at the Pullo Center.
Event Purpose
To get students involved in their Penn State experience. We have the biggest and best theater space outside of UP. We want our students to engage in all of the great programming that occurs there.
Itemized Request
In past years, if a show was greater than $25, the discount was $20. If it was less than $25, the discount was $10. Additionally, adult students could receive one complimentary ticket each year (not to exceed $40 face value). They would pay the difference if it was greater than that.

This year, I propose that we give students 50% off of every show. We have only spent between $3000 and $3500 during the past two years. I think that attending Pullo events should be a bigger part of attending Penn State York, and am requesting funds for this purpose.

On October 17th the Pennsylvania State University Laureate, Dr. Linda Miller, will visit our campus.

Linda Miller (B.A., Hope College; M.A., Ohio State University; Ph.D., University of Delaware) is Professor of English at Penn State Abington, where she has taught American literature since 1984, earning teaching awards including the Atherton Award for Excellence in Teaching (2004). Miller publishes in all areas of American studies, but her specialty is early twentieth-century American literature and art. Her articles on American writers have appeared in such journals as Mosaic, Renascence, American Transcendental Quarterly, Journal of Modern Literature, North Dakota Quarterly, Studies in American Fiction, The Mailer Review, The F. Scott Fitzgerald Review, and The Hemingway Review, and in several edited book collections. Dr. Millers books include (with Randall M. Miller) The Book of American Diaries (Avon, 1995) and Letters from the Lost Generation: Gerald and Sara Murphy and Friends (Rutgers University Press, 1991; paper 1993). Letters from the Lost Generation, which reexamines the personal and literary relationships between F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, John Dos Passos and Archibald MacLeish, among others, was published in an expanded edition (University Press of Florida, 2002). Miller is presently completing another book on the American expatriate artists in France (The Summer of '26), and her Reading Hemingway: In Our Time (Kent State University Press) is forthcoming. Professor Miller has lectured nationally and internationally on modernist art as it relates to American literature and art, and she is a popular speaker and book discussion leader for the Pennsylvania Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Prof. Miller served as guest scholar for C-Span's two-hour show on Hemingway, aired live from Key West, Florida, as part of C-Span's ongoing series American Writers: A Journey Through History. Miller has been a Danforth Foundation Associate as well as a Lilly Foundation Post-Doctoral Fellow. She has served as a scholarly consultant on expatriate American writers and artists for American Playhouse, PBS, and most recently for a special exhibition (Making It New: The Art and Style of Sara and Gerald Murphy) at Williams College Museum of Art in 2007 followed by a selected national tour, including Yale University and The Dallas Museum of Art in 2008. She has long served as a Board member of the Ernest Hemingway Foundation, and she chairs the Editorial Review Board for The Cambridge Edition of the Letters of Ernest Hemingway, to be published as a multi-volume series by Cambridge University Press. Miller wrote the Foreword for Volume 1, forthcoming in 2011.

At Penn State York, Dr. Miller will give a noontime (common hour) talk entitled “The Lost Generation on the French Riviera. Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, John Dos Passos, Archibald and Ada MacLeish, Dorothy Parker, and other literary and artistic luminaries, were all there on the Riviera in the 1920's most often at Gerald and Sara Murphy's Villa America. Drawing upon original photographs, Dr. Miller's video presentation and discussion will illustrate how the lives and art of this “lost generation embodied both the inventiveness of the Jazz Age and the tragedies that followed in the wake of the Stock Market Crash of 1929. This talk will be open to the entire campus and the community. It should be of particular interest for students in the arts and humanities. A question and answer session will follow the talk, to afford interested students an opportunity to interact with Dr. Miller. Light refreshments for this open event are expected to be $125.

In addition, on the same day, Dr. Miller will visit Dr. Jennifer Nesbitt's English 184 (The Short Story), to share insights into authors she has written about, specifically Hemingway and Fitzgerald. Dr. Miller's visit will enrich the class considerably, since students will be studying the authors she talks about in advance of her visit.

Finally, an evening dinner with administrators, faculty, and students (including staff of the campus literary magazine and undergraduate research assistants) will cap Dr. Miller's Penn State York visit. The estimated cost for this dinner is $300 ($15 X 20 participants).

We intend to use the funds to provide tutor training throughout the academic year; one hour/week for 10 consecutive weeks each semester (total = 20 training hours). In order for our tutor training program to maintain our national certification (College Reading and Learning Association) we must provide 10 hours of training each semester.
Event Purpose
1. The Nittany Success Center provided service to over 500 students during the 2010- 2010 academic year with 51% of them receiving an A or a B in the course for which they received tutoring. What an impact on campus retention!
2. Any student who receives an A in a course and receives faculty approval may be referred as a tutor or study group leader. (A student may also self refer.) We routinely contact faculty at the end of each semester to request referrals for prospective tutors.
Itemized Request
The funds are to pay the tutors for their participation in the training: ($8.00/hr. x 20 hours x 20 students)= $3200

Comments
We have received SAF funding for the tutor training for the past three years. Since moving to the MCB three years ago, we have increased the number of students we serve by 30%. The Nittany Success Center is a nationally certified tutor training program. We are proud of that accomplishment and want very much to retain that status!

In the past, Dr. Dzubak has provided between 4 - 6 study skills workshops each semester, open to all students.

Comments
This is a great opportunity for students to have a fun summer day and see more of the greater Pennsylvania area. Tickets to Zoo America are also included in the price, so hopefully some students will take advantage of this experience as well.
If the committee cannot fund the trip with two busses, we could take one bus and 13 students; however, we would then lose the group rate and have to pay more per ticket, off-setting the savings.

The funds will be used for student programming and activities planned, organized, and implemented by a 7 member PSY Programming Board. The programming and activities will include theme nights, musicians, comedians, novelties, education programming, raise awareness to college issues, as well as cultural events that would be free to students (and community in some cases)
Event Purpose
The programming board and its events will enhance the campus community and benefit PSY by allowing student to be a part of the campus after class, in between class, and beyond class. The goal is to get students to spend time on campus, when normally, they wouldn't. Whether it is having them attend an education program about an African Drum group, or simply hosting a movie night in the Community Room, its goal is to build ties to PSY beyond the classroom. And if the event is able to enhance the education in the classroom, all the better.

We would like to use these funds to support a Japanese Tea Ceremony Demonstration.

Mr. Frey will then answer questions while tea (made beforehand) and sweets are served to everyone else. We are hoping for approximately 20 people.

The traditional Japanese culture is multifaceted and can seem incomprehensible. The Tea Ceremony is a window into this culture, and in its simple beauty can help us to understand the traditions of Japan that continue to influence their culture today. We were planning this before the tragedy struck Japan, but now especially, cultural understanding is necessary to know how to best be of help during their difficult time.
