$301K budget is
about 12 percent less
than winter term
By DAILY WRITER
who has thisposition
Implementing an agenda on
campus doesn't come cheap.
With lower-than-expected
total student enrollment for this
academic year - 38,125 students
- to contribute to student gov-
ernment dues and about $50,000
less than expected from last
semester's carry-over, the Cen-
tral Student Government budget-
ed $301,104 for the fall semester.
The new budget is approxi-
mately 12 percent less than what
was available winter 2012.
Unlike previous semesters -
where commissions were allocat-
ed funds individually along with
the other budgeted expenses
- the 25 executive commissions
were not allocated funds for the
fall.
As per the new commission
structure implemented dur-
ing the summer by CSG Presi-
dent Michael Proppe and Vice
President Bobby Dishell, the
commissions are responsible
for compiling research-based
reports until November. The
reports include information on
the funds required during the
remainder of the year to drive

initiatives.
In the meantime, if commis-
sions require funds for their fall
initiatives, they will draw from
the $14,700 allocated to the com-
mission discretionary fund.
During the meeting, Proppe
said this structure solved the
dual purpose of allowing a great-
er allocation to the Student Orga-
nization Funding Commission
- the body primarily responsible
for funding voluntary student
organizations - and accommo-
dating the reduced budget.
Despite the new commission
structure, SOFC was allocated
about 12 percent less than what
they were given last semester. A
portion of the debate surround-
ing the budget was dedicated
to passing an amendment that
mandated that a minimum of 5
percent of the SOFC budget be
spent solely on graduate student
organizations.
On the other hand, Proppe
said it's necessary for the politi-
cal insurance to be written into
the budget, as graduate student
organizations did not face dis-
crimination when applying for
funding through SOFC along
with other undergraduate orga-
nizations.
"I don't think it is a good
idea to earmark a percent of the
SOFC budget to graduate stu-
dents," Proppe said. He added

MARCHING BAND
Prep for

show was
complex
Marching band
members, staff say
show was one of the
band's most difficult
By ARIANA ASSAF
DailyStaffReporter
There aren't many things that can
dazzle a student section quite like
400 Michigan Marching Band mem-
bers twinkling in time to songs made
famous by Queen Bey herself.
But that's exactly what hap-
pened when the marching band
turned down the lights at a Beyon-
ce-inspired halftime show during
Saturday's football game against the
University of Notre Dame.
The idea for the show originated
at the end of winter 2013 and the
concept developed over the summer.

unter Lochmann announced
new system, effective imme-
ately, in which students who
rchased full season tickets
ill have to individually claim
mes they plan to attend. He
id the move will help improve
e atmosphere at Crisler Cen-
r, which was often not filled
capacity last season because
any students attended just a
ndful of games.
"We want Crisler full," Loch-
ann said. "We want a loud
ena."
According to Lochmann,
average of 46.1% of student
'kets were used per game in

2012-13, well under the Big Ten
average of 67%. This season,
4,500 tickets were sold - an all-
time high - despite there being
just 3,000 seats allotted for
students. If seats go unclaimed
by students, they will be made
available to the general public.
Under the new system, Mich-
igan's 17 home fixtures will be
split into six different pods of
three or four games each. A cou-
ple of weeks before each pod's
contests, tickets will become
available online for a 72-hour
period. Students can then
select which games they plan to
attend, and the ticket will then
be electronically transferred to

the student's MCard where it
can be used or sold.
"The only con is not every
student is guaranteed a seat,"
Lochmann said. "But I think -
we don't know this - that if you
want to go to every game, you're
going to go to every game."
The first online claim period
will open Oct. 8, and the Wol-
verines' first home exhibition
tips off on Oct. 29.
However, if a student twice
claims tickets that he or she does
notuse, hewill notbe eligible for
tickets to the next pod of games.
If a student misses four claimed
games, he will not be eligible for

A woman reported that she was
sexually assaulted early Sunday
morning on the 300 block of May-
nard Street, accordingto the Ann
Arbor Police Department.
Between 2:15 and 2:36 a.m., a
29-year-old female was walking
to her vehicle on the 300 block
of Maynard Street when an
unknown male who had been
walking toward her exposed
himself and touched her,
according to AAPD. The woman
said she punched the suspect,
who ran toward a nearby stair-
well.
The incident is currently being
classified as fourth-degree crimi-
nal sexual conduct, which is a
misdemeanor.
In addition to providing a sur-
veillance photo, AAPD describes
the suspect as a male of unknown
race but medium complexion. The
suspect is estimated to be in his
early 20s, 5'6" to 57" in height
and 130 pounds. He has brown
straight short hair, a clean-shaven
face and brown eyes.
