    Alex Andresian knows what's up. He's been involved with both student council and Senate before. Let the man do his thing and represent CC!

    According to the faculty handbook,

    "The University Senate was established by the Trustees after a University-wide referendum in 1969. It succeeded to the powers of the University Council, which was created in 1890 as a body of faculty, deans, and other administrators to regulate inter-Faculty affairs and consider issues of university-wide concern"
    (http://www.columbia.edu/cu/vpaa/handbook/organization.html)

    This is a conscious departure from not only administrative power, but also faculty, in an effort to include students in university governance (faculty currently occupy a majority of senate seats).The administration is rightly represented within the university senate with 2 seats for [regular] administrators and 9 seats for senior administrators. While their influence clearly extends beyond the jurisdiction of the senate, there is no reason for students to roll over in the one arena that has been sanctioned for us to to speak truth to a bloating administration.

  9. seriously  

    Dave Kang might be a chill dude, but seriously one of the most power hungry, overinvolved people I know.

    Marc and Alex seem like the top dogs here.

  10. Here's an idea  

    How about everyone show up to the debate on Sunday at 4:30 and judge the candidates based on the merits of what they say? This kind of popularity-contest mentality is exactly why CCSC wanted to avoid holding a direct election in the first place.
