Student Government Association

East Tennessee State University

B.U.C. Fund

The BUC Fund is a student activity fund controlled by the Student Government Association. Currently, each student pays $20.00 per semester to the SGA's BUC Fund. 75% of this money is used to pay for Homecoming and the major semester events each semester (concerts, comedy shows, etc.). The remaining 25% is put into a General Fund that is used to fund student organizations planning events on campus. To be deemed eligible for BUC Funding, events should be well thought out and a detailed budget and itinerary planned. Please note that the SGA Senate only funds those events that will benefit a majority of the student body, since all students "pay into" our account. For more information about the SGA BUC Fund, please refer to the Student Government Association's Constitution and Code of Laws.
