Clearing confusion about its unused funds, Marquette Student Government announced today that its slush fund is actually a fund for slushies.
The official title of the slush fund is the “MUSG Slushie Fund – a Fund for Slushies.” The MUSG news release on the clarification stated that no money is going unused, but rather being put toward slushie machines that can be found in and around the MUSG office.
“MUSG put upwards of $300,000 toward blue raspberry, cherry and even white cherry,” the release stated. “The money was not wasted.”
MUSG president Kyle Whelton reiterated the position.
“We feel this is the best use of student funds,” Whelton said with a blue tongue, holding a large ICEE cup. “The election was really a referendum on slushies, and 22 percent of the university made its stance clear.”
The Turnip was not offered a slushie while in the MUSG office.
