The Student Fed­er­ation approved funding for the Actu­arial and Film and Pro­duction clubs on Nov. 16.

The first pro­posal came from the Actu­arial Club, a pre-pro­fes­sional club for stu­dents inter­ested in pur­suing a career in the actu­arial sci­ences. Actu­arial science uti­lizes both math­e­matics and sta­tistics to cal­culate risk pri­marily in the insurance and finance indus­tries.

The club asked for $300 to provide pizza, utensils, and drinks for their meetings next semester. The math department had pre­vi­ously funded these expen­di­tures, but the club hopes to use math department funding for the speakers and allocate fed­er­ation money to food.

The fed­er­ation approved the full funding unan­i­mously.

“We’re incredibly thankful,” trea­surer and sophomore Jarret Ochsendorf said. “This is a good lookout. We hope to start using those math funds to get in some speakers and help get our name out there a little bit.”

The Film and Pro­duction Club asked for $540 at the meeting. Since the club lacked basic filming gear, Pres­ident Kayla Stetzel came to the fed­er­ation with a list of the essen­tials that the club needs to succeed.

Stetzel’s request was granted and the fed­er­ation approved full funding.

“We are very happy to get the full funding,” Stetzel said. “With this gear, we are now an actual club. We’ve been doing things on campus but now with this gear we have stuff to show people. We can actually work with it, we can actually train people. So it’s really exciting.”

The Student Fed­er­ation announced results from the elec­tions via email to campus on Nov. 16. Junior Natalie Meckel will serve as Student Fed­er­ation pres­ident and junior Kolbe Conger will serve as vice pres­ident.
