      @Anonymous but he’s too critical…

        @Anonymous Critical is definitely not a bad thing.

        1. Anonymous says:

          @Anonymous yes it is. critical people stand in the way of the agreement that we need for progress. If we elect someone who is critical, they won’t cooperate with administrators which will be bad for everyone

            @Anonymous No. Agreeing with administrators does not further student’s interests. Columbia is supposedly a faculty and student run school and is very special to have a senate. However the senate has devolved into a total joke. Let’s elect someone who is not afraid to challenge the status quo.

      @CC abroad …Conor Skelding is the kid that trolls private fraternity emails from other schools to leak them to gossip websites. That doesn’t sound like he cares for other students. That sounds like he’s a sensationalist who is more than willing to be the point of the spear for an administrative witch hunt into student life. This shouldn’t just be scary for greeks, but for anyone who thinks that the administration shouldn’t be judging you based on your emails.

    @Anonymous 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.

    @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.

      @Anonymous Don’t blame me! I’m voting for Dave Kodos!

  • Here's an idea says:

    @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.
