LAB FUND REFERENDUM

LAB FUND REFERENDUM

The Engineering Equipment Fund (aka Lab Fund) is a student-supported fund which provides money for design projects and large one-time purchases outside the scope of typical annual funding, with any leftovers being put into the Engineering Endowment Fund with the eventual goal of sustaining Lab Fund through endowment interest alone. Currently, the fee $40 per semester — an amount set in 2003 which hasn’t changed since. In recent semesters Lab Fund has gone consistently over-budget and has had to withdraw money from the from the endowment fund. EngSoc is proposing raising the semester fee to $50 and indexing it to cost of living increases — and WE NEED YOU TO VOTE! 

The ballot is open from November 23 at 8:00 am to November 24th at 5:00 pm and can be found here.

We have all been there! Completely confidential, no one needs to know, we can meet, talk study tips, talk time management tips, and just be friends!

Another option is the Academic Action Program, which is run by the Library and is a free, semester-long program that helps you create and reach your academic goals.
