CCSC Comes Home
Written by Bwog Staff
Now that 2011 elections are over, the Columbia College political machine is gearing up for Homecoming, initiating new members and even passing resolutions.
First and foremost: this week’s Class-sponsored free food opportunities.
Monday: At 1:00 PM on Low Steps, Seniors present Texas BBQ and Pie Your Favorite Senior (Spectator editor-in-chief John Davisson and Dems president Josh Lipsky will be in attendance, among others).
Tuesday: Juniors present Quaker Oats in honor of UPenn’s pacifist mascot while thumb-wrestling with ’09 football players.
Wednesday: Sophomores present more Texas BBQ, as well as Paint Yourself Blue, in which Columbia’s bluest student wins a free Jet Blue ticket anywhere in the world. We think it may have something to do with this product placement.
Thursday: The freshmen (who didn’t know what was going on and sat awkwardly at today’s meeting) present something involving popsicles and flag football on South Lawn. Details to follow.
Friday: Homecoming Carnival with funnel cake and other assorted goodness.
In other news, the council confirmed three new members to the Committee on Manhattanville Expansion, which is set up to educate and reach out to students and create a website containing news and history about the controversy.
It was resolved that students want JJ’s open longer (really?) and because “WHEREAS, students of all years utilize Friday nights as a productive work night” and “WHEREAS, JJ’s Place offers a variety of culinary options, as well as serving as on-campus grocery store.”
It was also resolved that John Jay take out containers should be extended to weekends.
By the way, Lerner bathrooms are not going to be renovated after last year’s “Sexify Lerner” resolution (which requested better lighting in the lobby, computer lab improvements, faster elevators, opening up the Broadway room, and other amenities) was amended by the administration because of budget restrictions. Don’t worry though, the CCSC bulletin board is getting a glass case and there will be a large map of Lerner so that you can avoid the toxic toilets.
