As a new program to address campus safety, CSG is providing late night transportation reimbursements. We will be giving one-time reimbursements up to $15 for late night ride shares such as Uber or Lyft. Reimbursements can be requested here and will be given on a first come first serve basis.
Free Group-X Passes
Group-X passes give students access to every fitness class held by Recreational Sports on campus. CSG is excited to subsidize 100 in-person and 15 virtual passes for the remainder of fall semester for students on Pell-grants and/or other forms of need-based grant aid. To be considered for a free group-x pass, fill out this form.
Anti-Racism Student Organization Grant
Central Student Government is providing funding for student organizations who have consistently committed to furthering ideals of social justice and anti-racism. Potential grantees will be able to apply for programming support (event specific support) and/or general operating support (non-event specific support). In addition to monetary support, grantees will also work with Central Student Government in order to ensure their needs are met through this program and beyond. Please apply for the grant here! If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
