The Other Councils

Well, Barnard and GS students voted yesterday for their new student councils, both comfortably missing the Spec news cycle, although they’ve now got the SGA results online (all hail President Stoffel!). We’re all going to have to wait till Monday to learn who emerged victorious from the Niko vs. Gabby dogfight–which had some fun shenanigans–while […]

The People Click

The results of ESC’s virtual election are in, and the winner is…online voting. In contrast to last week’s abysmal turnout at the CCSC polls, over half of SEAS undergrads participated in this year’s contest (well, barely…exactly 50.9% voted). And that’s without the ability to directly choose SEAS’ highest leaders! Of course, the above figure is an average: […]

One Columbia, Go parties triumph; Democracy takes a whuppin’

Finally, it’s over: CCSC election results are in, and the victory parties underway (continuing 2009 President George Krebs planned a big one, the Sophomore Semi-Formal in Low, at which he was spotted breaking it down with a crown on). Bwog’s poll of earlier this week proved a mostly accurate indicator, and there were few surprises: […]

Promises, Promises

The debate among e-board candidates Tracy Chung, Michelle Diamond, and Natali Segovia took place Monday night in Carman lounge, redolent with the scent of JJ’s chicken fingers. All parties presented initially campaigns centered around a rhetorical motif of sorts. Chung’s Rebel CC campaign spoke first, with the theme of “rebelling against the status quo and […]

Bwog’s CCSC Strawpoll

Hey CC kids, who’re you voting for this week? (No, our voting technology can’t tell if you’re running around to different computers to vote multiple times, but we hope you have better things to do). Polls after the jump.

Chung Slings Mud at Diamond Over “Secret Deal”

Having garnered seven big-name endorsements, including that of the Columbia Political Union, Michelle Diamond ’08 is widely considered the frontrunner in the upcoming CCSC elections. However, it is just those endorsements that have placed her and her party, One Columbia, under fire for accusations of wrongdoing. Rebel CC Presidential candidate Tracy Chung ’08 filed three […]

Natali Segovia: “It’s not just one perspective Columbia has.”

Bwog presents the third of three CCSC Presidential candidate interviews, with Voice’s Natali Segovia. How is campaigning going? Campaigning is going well. An interesting aspect of it is hearing perspectives of other students. It’s inspiring seeing people mobilized about Student Council that haven’t normally been. What do you mean by that? Certain groups on campus […]

Michelle Diamond: “We can really hit the ground sprinting.”

Bwog presents the second of our three interviews with CCSC candidates – tonight, One Columbia’s Michelle Diamond (pictured, third from left, with running mates). How have you been doing? I’m doing very well. It’s a crazy, crazy crunch time – but the part of the campaign I really like. I get to present to different […]

Tracy Chung: “I’m a complainer who gets things done.”

  Bwog presents the first in a three-part series of interviews with CCSC Presidential candidates, Rebel CC’s Tracy Chung ’08. How have you been doing? I’m tired but good – I’ve been up late revamping our website, www.voterebel.com. How has campaigning been going? It’s going well. We dorm-stormed John Jay and Carman; freshmen are so open […]

Kick ’em while they’re down: the CC 2010 Debate

Last night, a sizable and enthusiastic crowd gathered in JJ’s Place to see the three parties running for 2010 Class Council debate (and eat free chicken fingers). While Mark Modesitt’s reconstituted Alma Matters [Remix] Party has the advantage of incumbency, the other two parties, AJ Pascua’s Go Party and Maximo Cubilette’s TOGA Party, seemed to […]

Spring Gleanings

A few items have come over the alias recently that we thought we’d share. To wit: University Senate candidate Eric Wang has scored again on the campaign publicity. Although his website seems to be inactive and posters alone don’t quite measure up to last year’s brilliance, somehow, it works. One tipster unaccountably roaming Hamilton this […]

Hate Graffiti Mars First-Year Campaign

First-year Class Council candidate (and incumbent President) Mark Modesitt is going through some rough times. He has been accused of being  a “rapist” in that most literally indelible of media – Sharpie marker on his dorm room door. Modesitt (as will be revealed in a Spec article Wednesday morning) has contacted Public Safety to launch […]

Dispatch from CCSC

Bwog occasionally likes to sit in on CCSC meetings, just for kicks. Things of note: – The meeting commenced with a furious marshmallow fight, during which Bwog nearly got beaned while tapping away in the audience. President Flaxman had to bang his shoe on the table to halt the crossfire. –  George Krebs, on the […]
