ESC: CAVA Moving to Nussbaum, Co-Sponsorship Changes

  • The administration will relocate CAVA to the basement of Nussbaum over the summer. CAVA’s move to Nussbaum surprised many, especially after undergraduate student councils had issued a joint statement supporting CAVA’s bid for space in Broadway. Farther away from campus than Broadway, the larger space in Nussbaum had never been discussed as a possible location for CAVA. Members of the council raised concerns that the increased distance would slow CAVA’s response time. 2012 Class Representative Spencer Almen added, “I’m glad they have a bigger space, but I’m worried about the safety of the students.”

This would allow student groups seeking co-sponsorship to only apply to the new committee, instead of applying to each governing board individually. Since the new co-sponsorship policy violates part of the current ESC constitution, it will be amended in a spring review session.

      @p.j. I would think fire safety regulations would require at least one staircase exit, if not two.
