The CCSC meeting outlines probably look something like this
Apparently, it’s not too late to make New Year’s Resolutions – or, at least, it’s not too late to announce them at a CCSC board meeting. CCSC is determined as ever to do hard work and accomplish important tasks, even in the face of last weekend’s blizzard, and Bwogger Joe Milholland is determined as ever to report on them.
Columbia College Student President Benjamin Makansi was absent from Sunday night’s CCSC general body meeting, as he had a job interview in Madison, Wisconsin.
In his stead, VP of Policy Vivek Ramakrishnan lead the meeting. After proposing to impeach Makansi, Ramakrishnan asked each of the council members present who were not on the executive board about their single goal for the semester. Ramakrishnan said he wanted to ensure that CCSC members were not getting distracted by mutual projects.
