CCSC releases Fall 2013 Report
“The goal for CCSC this year was very simple and perhaps a little creepy—to touch people.” This is how Columbia College Student Council President Daphne Chen, CC ’14 and a former Spectator news contributor, starts the council’s Fall 2013 Report.
The 17-page, 124-megabyte report, released yesterday, reminds us what CCSC has done this semester—everything from the honor code rollout to changes to Health Services scheduling procedures to class council events are presented with colorful graphics and plenty of photos of Columbia students smiling and laughing and not being stressed.
There’s also lots of pretty graphs about CCSC’s budgets and an attendance sheet for all of the members.
You can find the report here.
A few things that stuck out to us:
- CCSC’s fall 2013 budget was $850,194; $118,000 of that was spent on the “Facilities and Securities Fund.”
