Budget deadline extensions
allow consideration ofKWVA
as an EMU-funded program
The EMU Board of Directors and the Stu
dent Senate have pushed back the EMU’s
budgeting process in an effort to make cam
pus radio station KWVA an EMU-funded
group, a move that would give the station
more long-term financial stability.
KWVA General Manager Charlotte Nisser
said the ASUO Programs Finance Committee,
which currently sets the radio station’s budget
every year, causes the federally licensed radio
station to have to fight for funding every year.
When equipment breaks, the station must re
quest money from the Senate to repair it,
while still meeting the federal government’s
requirement to broadcast 24 hours a day.
KWVA said the Senate may not under
stand the importance of the funding or may
not have the money to disperse.
The EMU Board and the Student Senate
voted Wednesday to extend the due date for
the EMU budget benchmark, which is the
increase or decrease in proposed budget
since last year.
According to the Green Tape Notebook,
the student government’s rules and regula
tions guide, the EMU’s incidental fee
portion of its budget can’t exceed a 7 per
cent increase.
Currently, the EMU budget is already
breaking the 7-percent barrier because it is
slated to reach $389,527, or an increase of

The Graduate and Professional School Fair was held in
EMU Fir Room Monday afternoon.
Career center hosts grad
school fair for students
The fair featured representatives from 29 graduate and professional
programs; today the CC hosts a lecture on the application processes
The University Career Center hosted a Gradu
ate and Professional School Fair Monday, pro
viding students the opportunity to learn about a
variety of graduate school options.
The annual event, held in the EMU Fir Room,
hosted representatives from 29 graduate pro
grams, as well as the U.S. Marine Corps.
Clarice Wilsey, associate director of the Ca
reer Center, said the fair helps students sort
through the process of finding and applying
to the appropriate graduate school.
“Going to grad school is the same process
as finding a career,” she said. “You need to go
through a self-evaluation process. You need
to analyze why you’re going to grad school
and what you’re going to get out of it.”
Diane Jensen, a senior studying psycholo
gy, came to the fair hoping to learn more
about master’s programs in Counseling
Although Jensen already had potential grad
uate programs in mind, she said the process of
finding a graduate school was challenging.
“I feel like I had no idea what I was getting
into when I decided to go to graduate school,”
she said. “Any information is helpful.”
Monday’s fair offered students information
about pursuing advanced degrees in law, edu
cation and business, as well as less common
degrees, such as a master’s in Women’s Spiri
tuality from the New College of California.
