Where does your money go?

Please click here to see a pie chart of where your activity fee goes.

Your student activity fee is divided and allocated with the intent of benefiting the St. Kate's, St. Paul Campus, Day Student Community in the most efficient way possible.  Each year the budget is carefully reconsidered using input from your elected officials, Senate advisors, and student groups.

The category "Student Advancement Fund" is money set aside each semester that is available to students with ideas that will benefit the student community and enrich the St. Paul campus.

If you have an event, conference, or idea that you think fits this purpose, fill out a funding proposal and contact the Financial Affairs Chair, Student Activities office, or anyone on the Student Senate to have your idea go for a vote at a Student Senate meeting.  You will find the funding proposal under forms on this website or in hard copy format in front of the Senate office.
