1) Athletic Department Fundraising

The Athletic Department is now offering a new fundraising opportunity for Recognized Student Organizations (RSO). Students may work concessions during athletic events to raise money for their SOFS accounts. Minimum of 6 people needed from each interested RSO.

For more information, contact Janell Hall, Athletic Event Concession Manager, at 472-9432.

2) Register your RSO for Dance Marathon

Get your RSO involved with Dance Marathon and help save the lives of children! As “dancers,” money is obtained through a letter writing campaign with the goal of raising $150 per dancer to help the children and families of Children’s Hospital in Omaha. Registration is $20 per student and the first 500 to register and pay will receive a free t-shirt.

Dance Marathon will take place in late February and will be a 14-hour event filled with activities and entertainment. No dancing experience is required…just the desire to make a difference in the lives of others while having an amazing time doing it.

5) UPC Funding Available For Your Events

Need money for your RSO event? The University Program Council’s Fund Allocation Committee (FAC) has money available on a first-come, first-served basis!

An RSO may only receive funding for one event during a two (2) year fiscal span. To apply for funding for your event, pick up an application in Student Involvement or the UPC office in the Nebraska Union. Applications must be submitted at least 5 weeks prior to your event date.

If approved, a transfer of funds to the RSO SOFS account will occur AFTER the Fund Allocation Committee has received copies of bills, invoices, contracts, and/or receipts appropriate to the allocated fund amount. The RSO then has 120 days following the event to supply this documentation or the funds will be made available for reallocation.

  1. You should go to the non-violence one and speak about the horros of Islamists violence against non-Muslims, women, and even other Muslims.

    Barring that, grow a Muqtada al-Sadr beard and demand to voice the Islamist's point view. If they refuse, they are against multi-culturalism!
