Or at least it’s cheaper. George Washington University is trying to get student clubs to have large events. Who needs small, personal meetings? Such things are too expensive.
According to a piece by Justin Peligre in the student newspaper, The Hatchet:
Administrators are pushing student groups to partner up on more events this year, cutting down on the number of smaller, more exclusive events in favor of larger, University-wide functions.
Dean of Students Peter Konwerski said “collaborative programming” is especially important this year as there is a growing number of student organizations that continue to fight for a stable pot of funds.
“Nobody’s budget is growing,” Konwerski said. “Things are costing more.” The Student Association has a record-breaking $950,000 to doll out this year.
