Danielle, this makes sense to me -- I think it sounds like a good idea,
although I am not sure if SGA would support this set-up, but perhaps they
don't care. Kirsten, do they ask you to specify a special class soley
devoted to the UVM aikido club? If not, then I would support this set-up,
although I would also like some sense of solidarity within the club as a
group that is both part of ACV and is also a separate entity (perhaps a UVM
club seminar once a semester, get togethers, etc.). Otherwise it wouldn't be
a club; instead, it would be simply a UVM subsidy of individual Aikido of
Champlain Valley students.
