Which seat do I take?
As the school year starts, you will be inundated with student groups asking you to leave your fields to flower and join them. Before you go signing up for every listserv under the sun, we wanted to provide you with a brief rundown on the cafeteria of Columbia–those student groups that make the most buzz on campus and that you really should know about. If we missed your group or said something you don’t like, scream at us in the comments.
The EcoReps are there to make you feel shitty about how you treat the environment. They compost, they gave you your fridge, and they’re getting you a bike.
CUPAL is a collaborative head group for performing arts groups on campus. They run shit. We’ll let them explain the functions of CMTS, BTE, KCST, Latenite, Orchesis, NOMADS, CU Players, and CUWE.
CUDems likes Democrats. CUCR likes Republicans. CPU likes to talk about them. They all like a good party.
Student Wellness Project is a highly debated newish group all about promoting student wellness, mostly in terms of decreasing student stress. You might get a free snack or pat on the back from them during finals. Sometimes they try to push through some resolutions, though the impact has not been well analyzed yet.
FeelGood CU gives you grilled cheese!!!!!
Student-Worker Solidarity (SWS) likes to yell about things, a lot. In all seriousness, they support workers in Morningside Heights for decent rights and stuff.
