Breakdown of SAGEcoach
With Programs Board receiving 20 percent of student fees, their projected budget determined at their spring retreat was approximately $115,000. Throughout the year, it has increased to a final $139,963. Programs Board decided within their own organization to put on a spring concert instead of a spring formal for the end of the 2016 year. According to the Programs Board Director for the 2015-2016 academic year, Amber Trujillo, the Chiddy Bang concert in 2014 was deemed unsuccessful so they increased the artist booking budget to $40,000. Booking Chiddy Bang cost $25,000. They decided on an overall budget of $60,000 for the concert.
Sage the Gemini performed in the Gilbert Sports arena on April 29. The alternative rock band from Cal Lutheran Lancer Roscoe and hip-hop/rapper Nolan Forghani opened for Sage from 8 – 9 p.m. Sage started his set roughly at 9:15 p.m. and performed until 9:50 p.m. and then D.J. Lucci played covers while Sage interacted with the crowd until 10 p.m.
All information was provided by the 2015 – 2016 Programs Board Director Amber Trujillo, 2015 -2016 ASCLUG Recorder Kiana Parker and Programs Board commitee meeting minutes.
All of the budget numbers for student fees are looking at Programs Board use of student fees not ASCLUG as a whole.
