Our great leaders at CCSC meet weekly, and Maren Killackey reports what went down this week.
A mercifully short meeting thanks to a hellish week:
First was an announcement from Dean of Residential Programs Cristen Kromm regarding RC@C facilitators. The RC@C program aims to teach incoming first years
that drugs are “bad” and alcohol is “dangerous” about how to engage in thoughtful conversation about substance issues. If that sounds like your thing apply by Friday, March 15…just before you leave for Spring Break. Oh the impending irony.
- The Class of 2014 will host a brunch the day after Bacchanal, is co-hosting an event with the Columbia College Young Alumni (CCYA) association, and will hold their second formal of the semester on May 4. They’re also planning an end of the semester picnic.
- Sophomores look out for more information about the upcoming formal at Hudson Terrace.
- 2016 will host a pre-St. Patty’s Day party.
- The new EcoReps liaison announced that Columbia made the latest Princeton Review’s list of the 21 greenest colleges.
- Are you a fan of campus bureaucracies? Ok, well, what about free food? Then head over to SGB elections in the Diana Oval this Tuesday.
- For another installation of Bagel-palooza, Campus Life will be handing out bagels in Carman lounge Wednesday.
- Community Impact is starting an assessment of service learning on campus.
- Academic Affairs hero Steven Castellano continues his quest to finalize the freshman pass/fail policy. The Academic Affairs team sent out a survey recently to gather more students’ opinions on it.
Chris Godshall CC ’15 was affirmed for the recently vacated pre-professional liaison position.
The council also heard presentations from candidates applying to the Ivy Council head delegate position. Speaking on the qualities of a strong head delegate, former head delegate Arvind Ahmadi CC’14 emphasized that it’ll important for the Ivy Council to establish a stronger presence on campus and build a strong contingent for future Leadership Summits. After hearing from all four applicants, the council voted to appoint Julian Richardson CC’14.
