St. Thomas students, faculty and staff have the opportunity to help decide what the university should do with money provided under a contract with Pepsi.
St. Thomas signed a three-year contract in July 1997 giving Pepsi the exclusive “pouring rights” on the university’s St. Paul and Minneapolis campuses. Pepsi paid St. Thomas $100,000 in fiscal year 1998, $50,000 in fiscal year 1999 and $50,000 in fiscal year 2000 to operate the company’s pop machines and sell its beverages here.
If you’d like to submit a proposal on how to use this year’s money, pick up a request form outside the All College Council office, the Dean of Student Life office or Auxiliary Services, all located in Murray-Herrick Campus Center. Proposals are due Friday, March 17.
To receive consideration:
Applications will be reviewed in the order received.
