Next week the student councils will be sending a survey out to the student body, to gather opinion on the proposed campus smoking ban. To provide a little background, tonight we present senior editor Adam Kuerbitz’s feature on the ban, from the new issue of the Blue and White. The cigarette break has changed drastically […]
As the class of 2009 departs Columbia, the bright lights of New York will have at least one symbol of their achievements: CCSC has secured the chance for the Empire State Building to be lit up in light blue and white next Wednesday night. According to CCSC President George Krebs, the project was “spearheaded” by CC […]
Dear underclassmen: When you get to be a senior, Columbia will start dong nice things for you, in hopes that those good feelings will be the ones that stick when you have more money than you need for basic survival. Senior dinner is one of those things, and this evening, many thousands of dollars went […]
Much of last night’s CCSC meeting split two ways was concerned with the CCSC Town Hall and College Days, with George Krebs and Robyn Burgess reminding the council members to come out. Actual news was little in evidence, with one exception: VP for Policy Adil Ahmed, CC 2010 President AJ Pasuca, and CC 2010 VP […]
– Columbia University The Sunday CCSC meeting effectively consisted of one item, and one item only: questioning Senior Executive Vice President Robert Kasdin, Kasdin, who has been described to Bwog by council members as “the man holding the purse strings” and “the damage control guy,” has been PrezBo’s right-hand man going back to Michigan. […]
The weekly CCSC meeting began with a rousing singing of Happy Birthday for the members with February birthdays, and the distribution of free M2M coconut wafers. In a textbook case of crossed wires, a birthday cake appeared five minutes later (with trick candles! Teehee!), and a second round of Happy Birthday singing ensued… On the […]
The deadline may have been pushed back, but candidates have already started to fall into place for CCSC elections, plotting the best ways to invade your life with posters. As usual, only some of the major tickets have received challengers (so far). The most competitive race looks to be for senior class president, with many […]
Procrastinating student politicos might have been surprised to discover that, until last night, the deadline for CCSC elections registration was this Friday. So little time! Now, though, in order to increase the number of candidates, CC’s Elections Board has pushed the filing deadline back to Friday, March 6th, a full two weeks later. According to […]
Bwog-rover James Downie hunkered down in the Satow Room to follow the latest CCSC meeting: The meeting began with a vote on cosponsorship requests: while most of the groups received their requested amounts, the Vagina Monologues did not get money for dildos for the audience (or maybe “dildoes for the audience”–Bwog and Demetri Martin aren’t […]
Satow Room Bureau Chief Martha Turewicz attended last night’s CCSC meeting. It’s that special time of year again, and last night’s CCSC meeting was infused with some of that special holiday cheer. The meeting began, as it so often does, with President George Krebs pounding out a peppy little drumbeat on the desk. Notably absent […]
Satow Room Bureau Chief Martha Turewicz attended last night’s CCSC gathering, during which a move was made toward granting all student council reps voting rights. President George Krebs started last night’s CCSC meeting off with a bit of tough love, declaring, “Like it or not we’ll start at eight o’clock and everyone who’s late will […]
Your (Columbia College) student government is officially functional! The full CCSC met for the first time tonight in Satow, where they’ll be taking care of business every week this year on Sundays at 8:00pm. “We’re going to get in, do what we need, and get out,” said a take-no-prisoners President Krebs of his meeting style. […]
Well, they moved quickly this time. As we wrote about before, the announcement of a joint appearance by Obama and McCain on campus next Thursday took student government and group leaders completely by surprise. Just before midnight, though, the presidents of the student councils, club governing boards, and Panhellenic councils have sent an email to […]
This first issue of The Blue and White was made with Columbia’s newest inhabitants in mind. Dearest overachievers: perhaps the humanities is not the way to go for that A+… If you came to Columbia in search of fat cats, look no further. They are at the top of student government and the campus music […]
Bwog spent the first hour of George Krebs’ presidency with the man of the hour and the rest of his camp in Krebs’ Watt Studio. Krebs bounded down the Watt stairs and greeted us. “Thank you!” he yelled. He ran back up the stairs and slammed the door to his studio open. “WOOOOO!” he yelled. […]
