The University Senate released an online survey this evening aimed to gauge student opinion on the subject of military presence at Columbia. There are general questions about the military’s relationship with Columbia, and there is a question that directly asks: I ______ of a return of ROTC to Columbia’s campuses.

You can access the survey via their web page and log in with your UNI (however, they stress the survey is anonymous). It starts tonight at 8pm and will be open until next Thursday, February 24 at 11:59pm.
