Parting words: the legacy of a truly great student council
Bwogger Nadra Rahman bids CCSC a merry adieu, after, of course, they engage in some navel-gazing.
CCSC’s last meeting of the year began with a standing ovation for 2018 Rep (Lord) Lord Hyeamang, who has received an offer from the Jets—and in general is a much beloved member of Council. Remember when we used to be proud of our losing streak (R.I.P.)?
After the hubbub died down and updates were shared, a quick constitutional amendment was passed with zero discussion: at 2021 VP Ramsay Eyre’s suggestion, all instances of “he/she” in the CCSC Constitution were changed to “they” to remove gender specificity and encourage inclusivity. Then, we got to…
Paper Plate Awards
No other group on campus gets the media to cover their self congratulatory victory lap, but this is CCSC. Here is the (incomplete) list of superlatives awarded to various members of Council, written on flimsy paper plates, but inscribed in our hearts forever:
Most likely to be a real long boi: 2020 VP James Ritchie (from the audience: “We want to know what the long refers to!”)
Most likely to save the Earth: 2020 Rep Grant Pace

Most likely to Venmo request his grandmother: VP Finance Adam Resheff
Most likely to institute a 90 second speaking limit and not adhere to it himself: President Nathan Rosin
Most likely to get into every law school ever: VP Policy Nicole Allicock
After the in-jokes and mild hazing, the E-Board continued a recent tradition by vacating their seats and allowing the new E-Board to take their place and say a few words. Mander (who will be VP Campus Life) affirmed his commitment to Mozzarella Monday; Adam Resheff (who will continue to be VP Finance) said he was “excited to do this again,” to a few laughs. The current E-Board also shared their parting words. Rosin called his tenure “one of the greatest privileges of my life.” Cedar put his penchant for drama on display, declaring, “I love CCSC. Roar Lion Roar!”
And that’s a wrap! See y’all next year (or not)—below are the final updates:
Student Services: The Registrar has confirmed that Hamilton will be bookable in the first three weeks of classes, starting from next semester. Spaces can be reserved after 10 pm on weekdays and all day on weekends.
2020: The class is preparing for its “Roaree” awards, as well as its study break on Wednesday.
2018: Avendano spoke on behalf of his class, saying, “Senior Week is on the horizon. We don’t plan that, but we’re excited.”
Finance: By-laws related to the Open Student Groups project and its accompanying constitutional amendment will be added (or at least deliberated) in the fall.
Policy: Allicock finally received data that suggests there are enough enough seats in seminar-style classes to require a minimum of one seminar to fulfill the Global Core requirement.
Policy also met with administrators to discuss their suggestions for revamping Advising, including the possibility of CULPA-style evaluations for advisors.
Campus Life: Cedar, a pioneer in student council apparel, said he was “dismayed to see ESC copied our idea for bucket hats.” The resulting conversation revealed that Allicock, Khan, and most other members of Council found his retaliatory Facebook post (pictured) “childish.”
