“By your deeds and not by your words shall you be known.”
Or so reads the Sachems‘ website. Did we think to look for a website? Dammit, no. Frankly, we’re a bit over posting more lists of people who are trying to do cool things for Columbia—like to raise money for ambulances or scholarships, and to help “Columbia University in the City of New York” rival Yale’s pretentiousness. But who doesn’t love a good party?
Enter Sachems.org. You need a login and a password to access the main site, but you can see for yourself the photo album from their “Gala Centennial Celebration,” held at the University Club in Midtown in October 2013—though WikiCU says that the Sachems were founded in 1915. As their website notes: “Password: deedsnotwords.”
We sure do see some of our favorite student leaders in the 569 photos from the party. Here’s a sampling. That alumni base, though.
