The votes are in, and the projects to be funded this year by the Student Life Enhancement Fund have been selected and approved. The projects are furniture upgrades to the first and second floors of MUSC, as well as more lockable charging stations and increased composting opportunities on campus.
In previous years, the Student Life Enhancement Fund provided the support necessary to provide improvements to Compass, microwaves and electrical outlets in MUSC, and a fitness and boulder circuit near the track field across from Les Prince.
This year, the second floor of MUSC will be upgraded with collaborative work and lounge space, and the tables and chairs on the first floor of MUSC will be upgraded to include longer seating, plugs integrated into seating, and a more aesthetically pleasing environment. Multiple charging stations will be installed across campus for students to charge their phones, tablets and other devices in a safe way, and functional composting bins will be integrated into MUSC.
“This year's SLEF projects are an excellent example of what this fund was designed for: enhancing student life in different facets of campus and the student experience,” says Daniel D'Souza, MSU Vice President (Finance).
The Student Life Enhancement Fund (SLEF) provides seed capital and financial support for student-run and University-based service providers to expand their programming, infrastructure and/or operations. The fund is intended for initiatives that demonstrate commitment to improving and enhancing student life and is administered by the Student Services Committee (SSC). The membership of the SSC consists of representatives from the MSU and the University. Click here for more information.
