Swarthmore Asian Organization (SAO)
Swarthmore Asian Organization (SAO) requested a total of $330.00 in funding for their “ReBirthday” event; the group plans to use this event to formalize a “shift” from a primarily sociocultural group to one that focuses on political discourse and Asian-American activism. Full funding was proposed and passed unanimously.
Men’s Ultimate Frisbee
The Men’s Ultimate Frisbee team requested $1540.00 in “capital replacement” funds to purchase two jerseys for thirty-five people.

The team also made a request for $300.00 in registration fees for their sectionals tournament and $7055.54 in transportation funding for both the men’s and women’s ultimate frisbee teams’ annual spring break training trip. Funding in the amount of $7355.54 (i.e. registration and transportation) was proposed and passed unanimously.
