A mixed slate took Senior Class Council and two groups failed in their appeals for block funding despite majority support in the latest round of Student Union elections. The results, announced Tuesday afternoon, represent the votes of nearly 41 percent of the undergraduate student body, making the election the most competitive in recent memory.
Every year, Student Union allows student groups to appeal for a lump sum directly out of its general budget. These funds, called block funding, allow groups to pay for long-term, high-cost initiatives without going through the typical allocation process.
