GSSC Announces New Student Health Ambassadors Program

GSSC Bureau Chief Andrew Chee brings you the recap of the latest General Studies Student Council meeting.

Student Health Ambassadors

GSSC kicked off last night by announcing a new program coming this fall called Student Health Ambassadors. Aiming to be a bridge between the student body and Columbia health services, it will consist of four to eight students who will hold office hours from 7 – 9 pm, during which students can walk in and inquire about any issues or questions regarding health services on campus. For individuals interested in serving as a CU Well Peer Leader, applications will go out in the GS emails, and will also be available on the student council Facebook page as well.


GS will finally be starting a senior fund, something which the other undergraduate schools have already established. The current goal is for 100 students to be committing $19 each, with the aim of establishing a firm base for giving back to the future community.

Leadership award nominations are also out! Nomination pages can be found in emails; see your emails for further information.

Upcoming Events

  • Movie Night – Tonight, February 27th, 6:30 to 9:30 pm. The movie will be If Beale Street Could Talk, one of the top 10 films of 2018 chosen by both the National Board of Review and the American Film Institute. The story follows a young African-American woman who, with her family’s support, seeks to clear the name of her wrongfully charged love interest and prove his innocence before the birth of their child.
  • Midnight Run – Thursday, February 28th, 6:30 pm at the Kraft Center. Donations for travel sized toiletries, winter jackets, hats, gloves, and warm clothes will be collected at the Kraft Center, which will then be distributed, along with sandwiches, to those in need around campus. Running is not required, but volunteers are required!
  • Snack Attacks during the week of March 11 – 14 for midterms season! Breakfast will be at 9 am and lunch will be at 12:30 pm, and it will take place in the GS lounge.
