2. All funds not used in this manner will be reverted back to the Senate General Fund.

2. Anyone willing to volunteer their time and service is welcome to assist in the construction, but the majority of the labor will come free of charge from ΑΩ members.

Explanations and Reasoning

Section E.

LeTourneau University does not currently have a Gaga Ball Pit. Why do we need one? Everybody likes them. ΑΩ President Bergman posted a survey on the buzz app a semester or two ago asking for feedback from LETU students about whether they would be interested in using a Gaga Ball pit if one were to be built on campus. The survey received 52 responses, 95% of which were overwhelmingly positive and showed interest in using said pit if it were to be built.

“If you build it, they will come.”
