The fine folks of CCSC met, as they are wont to do, last night. Maren Killackey was there.
It was noticeably empty Sunday night in the Satow room; both CCSC President Karishma Habbu and VP Communications Jared Odessky were absent, and some questioned whether there were enough council members present to meet quorum. Those that weren’t there didn’t miss much, though; thanks to a light agenda (and closed section (#transparencymuch?)), the meeting was mercifully quick.
Calvin Sun, CC’08 visited the Council to give a presentation on behalf of the Columbia College Young Alumni. He stressed that it’s a tough world out there once you leave college. Cold and dark. Unless you have a boyfriend or girlfriend (whatever those are), you’ll be all by yourself, and how fast you’ll wish for that floormate who Skyped loudly at 6 a.m. back, just so you can have someone – anyone – to glare at on College Walk! But, there is hope… ifyougivelotsofmoneytoColumbiakthanksbye. Seriously, though, CCYA hosts awesome community service projects and offers great opportunities to get catch up with old friends aka get really trashed at Havana and go to Tom’s for drunk food. Oh, the joys of college.
Filling in for Jared Odessky, 2016 Rep Grayson Warrick presented on the how-to guides, which has been a big council initiative since the beginning of last semester. First supposed to be officially “released” in October… then in November, many articles have actually been live for a while, they just didn’t have their own link on the homepage of WikiCU, making them impossible to find… unless, y’know, you used Google. You can also create an account and edit your own how-to guide. Encouraged topics might be How to Defeat the new Turnstiles of Doom in EC; How to Not Be That Guy in Lit Hum/CC/Lecture/Seminar/Section/Dining Hall/Butler/Anywhere a Douchey Archetype Could Possibly Be at Anytime Within a 10-Block Radius of the School (Sigh); or How to Prepare for a Natural Disaster.
