In March of 1965, there was a remarkable change at Keene State College regarding the funds for students, individuals and on-campus organizations.
The year 1965 was one in which the Boston Celtics won the National Basketball League title, the Green Bay Packers won the Super Bowl, Bonanza was the most popular television show and KSC student council decided to provide funds for student trips.
Two students asked the Student Council for $100 in order for them to be able to attend the National Teachers Convention in Denver, Colorado.
This trip would cost the two, along with their biology professor, a total of $600.
This motion to receive this money led to the ruling that any organization or individual may request money for trips, conventions, meetings and seminars.
Also in 1965, Roman J. Zorn was the KSC president, from 1964 to 1969, and the Zorn Dining Commons is named for former President Zorn.
In 2017, many on-campus organizations are able to receive funding through following the correct steps and having each executive member maintain a 2.0 GPA.
Each year, student organizations submit a budget request form and connect with student government and student involvement.
