Student Event Allocation event

What is Student Event Allocation?

Student Event Allocation (SEA) is a program that allows Registered Student Organizations to submit proposals for events and programs such as speakers, lectures, dance performances, etc. Proposals are submitted a semester in advance of the proposed program.  Proposals for Fall 2014 programs have already been submitted.  ).

The Student Event Allocation Committee decides if the organization should receive monetary allocation for their programs, as well as the amount of money, based on the program proposal. The committee helps the organization with many aspects of their program planning and execution.
