StuGov Approves Funding for Pakistani Student Union – Iowa State Daily




Senate also approved funding for the Table Tennis Club


Jay Waagmeester

Student government meets every Wednesday in the Campanile Room of the Memorial Union.

Funding for the Pakistani student union, the table tennis club and the Equestrian Hunt Team was on the agenda of the student government.

Senators voted unanimously to partially fund two events organized by the Pakistani student union and to support ads for the fund-raising campaign for flood victims.

The amount awarded was $2,215, with $1,904 earmarked for ethnic foods for the organization’s Eid Milad Un Nabi celebration set to take place toward the end of the semester.

Eid Milad Un Nabi is like Christmas for us. For a Muslim, that’s a great thing, and it’s open to everyone, said Muhammad Azhan, the club’s treasurer. We have a certain section of the Muslim community in Ames, so I’d say it’s a good initiative to have that.

The remaining $310 awarded was for advertising and an ESPN+ subscription for the organization to stream the International Cricket Council World Cup. The World Cup starts on October 15, lasts almost a month and is a popular part of Pakistani culture.

The Senate voted to first swing a bill that would allocate $300 to the Table Tennis Club.

Each year, the Table Tennis Club is required to pay a membership fee to its governing body, the National Collegiate Table Tennis Association.

The Senate chose to put the bill to a vote quickly because membership fees were fast approaching and a vote on the bill next week would result in the organization paying a late fee.

Forgoing the first reading means the finance committee didn’t see the bill before it reached the Senate floor, but chief financial officer Kit Clayburn, a senior in animal ecology, assured the Senate that this bill was in line with funding requirements.

The finance committee as a whole hasn’t seen this, but if it’s just the competition entry fees, we fund the competition entry fees on a case-by-case basis, Clayburn said.

The Senate, which had final discretion over student activity costs, voted unanimously to fund the table tennis club.


Quinn Margrett, a freshman majoring in pre-business, stood just a week after being confirmed as a general member of the Senate Local Affairs Committee to be confirmed as a residency senator.

Undergrads here aren’t always proportionally represented on campus or even in the Student Government, Margrett said. Many undergrads have yet to find the means or outlet to engage. That is why I see so much potential in continuing to bridge that gap by connecting residents of traditional first- and second-year housing with their student government.

As a result of his new Senate membership, his position on the Local Affairs Committee changed from General to Senator.

Jessica Olander, senior environmental science and former member of the sustainability committee, was reaffirmed as general member of the sustainability committee.

Maria Ladenburger, a freshman environmental sciences student, was also confirmed in the sustainability committee.

In addition, Alex Cecil, a senior in agronomy, announced his resignation as chief justice of the Supreme Court. Effectively at the close of Wednesday’s meeting, Brady Schlueter, a political science graduate student, became Chief Justice.

I feel like I can serve the student body in a much better way if I do some other stuff,” said Cecil. “I’ve been on the track for two and a half years now.”

Next week

  • The Senate will see a funding request from the Equestrian Hunt Team for rentals for their upcoming event.
  • The request before the finance committee sees it as $3,258.40 and would be taken from the Senate discretionary bill.
  • The Senate also sees a line item transfer from Dance Marathon.
