New Furniture Coming to the Rock Room


Senate President Rachel Pearson gets excited about the groovy patterns to appear on the new Rock Room furniture

Start saying your goodbyes to the old, outdated furniture in the Rock Room because fresh new furniture will be taking its place very shortly! The new furniture will add a new aesthetic to this Student Union area and hopefully bring an appeal for more students to enjoy all that the Rock Room has to offer.

The Student Activity Fee has funded the new furniture, which is a component of every full-time undergraduate and graduate student’s tuition at Rockhurst. The Student Activity Fee Budgeting Committee (SAFBC) distributes the Student Activity Fee funds, which is a sub-committee of Student Senate. SAFBC distributes the funds based off of requests presented by student organizations. The SAFBC identified the need to revamp the Rock Room and thought that new furniture would be a great way to do that. After voting on furniture pieces, fabric design, and a color scheme, the furniture was ordered and is now en route to RU.

Be on the lookout for this exciting update to the Rock Room!

If a student organization you are a part of would like to request funds from the Student Activity Fee Budgeting Committee, please refer to the information that can be found on the Student Senate website HERE.
