Rodney Miller, dean of the college of fine arts, said the college had requested $35,000 but the fee committee only recommended $20,000.

He said that with any less than the $35,000, the department would have to go back to charging for tickets to performances and plays.

A representative from the international office spoke about the study abroad program. The office requested $50,000 to fund scholarships for students looking to study abroad but only received a fee committee recommendation of $25,000.
