It's all about the Benjamins, baby, right? Right! SAVW love the fact that we operate on a budget that could easily fund a poverty-stricken, third world country. We're so high class, we hold our events in the corner of our shared office. And for our fancy catering, we don't order out. You won't ever find any take-out menus in the left-hand side of our only functioning drawer. Who needs those when our residential writers can just buy a couple bags of Sun Chips and a few orders of pre-processed mozzarella sticks with their meal cards in the Donahue caf? They're delicious and hey, they're good for you too.
Our guest speakers talk every Tuesday at 1 pm, ironically, the same time we have our meetings. Our budget allows us to have some pretty impressive keynotes. For example, I usually talk for a little while as do our other section editors. I know, I know, pretty exclusive and expensive all at once.
I mean don't get us wrong, we hear check requests and allocation forms are a blast. But let's be real here; we're SAVW, not business students. All those numbers just seem way too complicated for us.
Now come on, who's budget do you think paid for Bill Cosby to speak at the C. Walsh Theatre a few weeks ago?
