A newly proposed student fee for Greek students is still on the table, even though a committee of students voted against it Thursday.
The fee, if approved, would charge $12.50 each semester to members of UNC’s 55 Greek organizations and would bring in approximately $62,500 to $78,000 per year.
Members of the student fee advisory subcommittee, which is composed of both students and administrators, said at a meeting Friday that they needed more information about students’ opinions before approving the fee.
Aaron Bachenheimer, director of the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life and Community Involvement, told the subcommittee the additional revenue would fund resources that would benefit full-time, active Greek members, such as office space in Granville Towers.
The meeting followed the student fee audit committee’s meeting Thursday, during which the proposed fee was unanimously voted down by student members.
