The budget areas including Campus Life Administration, Student Union Operations, Student Union Custodial and Student Union Engineering. With the planning that has been done before the SURC was built has put them in good shape for the future. Student employees are about 30 and their pay averages $9.25 per hour. The SURC has about 8,000 people pass through their doors each day. The meeting rooms of the SURC are rented to groups on the campus and in the community, and equipment is also available for rental, which helps to generate revenue—helping to offset expenses. Decisions for the SURC are made by the union board, student group, ASCWU BOD and Governance Board.
