All about the Benajmins

As you rolled out of bed this Friday, we know there was only one thing on your mind: the Doritos spilled all over your room the mysterious hat you found in your bed if seabirds can digest seawater and if they can’t then how do they find fresh water the CCSC budget. Us too. Namely, the fact that the class of 2014 (the class with the largest budget) has more than $9,000 more than the class of 2016 (the class with the smallest budget). That’s right: the class of 2014 has a budget of $10,185, while the class of 2016 has a measly $650. We’ve been told by a student council member that we can go ahead and chalk the difference up to 2016’s frugality, collaborating on events, and wanting to save money for spring events (major declaration, a formal, buying class apparel), but $9,000 is quite a substantial gap. That’s quite a bit of frugality. Here’s the full report.

To illustrate the difference, we’ve put together a list of things that the classes of 2014 and 2016 could buy with their respective budgets:

Things the Class of 2014 Could Buy With Their Riches:

  • 2,037 beers
  • A tiger (but just a normal one, not a white one)
  • Maybe a small island with nothing on it (we’re not sure how much crappy islands are going of these days)
  • 40,740 marbles
  • Probably get Beyonce to make the shortest appearance of her life

Things the Class of 2016 Could Buy With Their Pocket Change:

    Bwog, why don't your rub your few brain cells together and write a proper article. You know full well the senior's have the highest budget ever year because they put have to put on events such as Lerner Pub, graduation events etc. You've taken two small isolated pieces of information (the amount the freshman and senior councils get) and attempt to make a story out of it. Try doing some useful for a change.

    Ramis Wadood is saving his budget so he can throw a lot of events around the time he runs for U Senate

  4. youve got to be joking  

    bwog, do you know what a budget is? it's the amount of money that you are given to spend over a certain period of time. bwog, do you know what those spend numbers represent? they represent how much money was spent over a certain period of time. budget and spend are not the same thing, bwog. i can be given a $50 budget for an event but only spend $40 of it. as you noted yourselves, 2016 did not spend their entire fall budget in order to throw large events in the spring. bwog, please do better. there is a good amount of decent reporting done on here but "writers" who bs articles like this one turn people off, especially when they try to shit on people on campus who are doing good.
