CCSC wants you to recycle your (unused) alcohol
Wondering what’s up with the search for a new dean? Curious about how potential renovations to the Student Government Office are coming along? Ben Gittelson brings you the highlights from last night’s CCSC meeting:
- Dean decisions: The council presented a list of recommendations of what it would like to see in a new dean to CCSC president-elect Karishma Habbu, CC ’13, who was just appointed to the dean selection committee. Current CCSC President Aki Terasaki, CC ’12, said he wants to make sure the new dean meets with the council at least once a semester, which didn’t happen this year.
- SGO renovations: Terasaki, CC ’12, brought a mock-up of his ideas for renovations to the Student Government Office in Lerner Hall, including adding un-bookable meeting rooms and more seating. CCSC vice president-elect of Campus Life Yanyi Luo, CC ’13, said she’d like to see more student input before renovations start.
- Broadway Room blues: Terasaki said a recent Activities Board at Columbia resolution that expressed opposition to converting the Broadway Room to student lounge space should have been directed at the Student Space Initiative, not CCSC. Barry Weinberg, CC ’12, who spearheaded the Student Space Initiative—which is pushing for the changes to the Broadway Room—emphasized that the room will not be converted “until and unless groups that already use the room are found an equal or better space.”
- Gettin’ wasted: The council discussed two proposals to reduce alcohol waste, one of which would allow student groups to sell their unused alcohol to other groups and another which would allow them only to give it away.
- Elections recap: Two members of the CCSC Elections Board came to the meeting to discuss how the council’s elections went. Elections Board Chair Norita Mengu, CC ’13, said she was happy with ending the moratorium on campaigning during voting, but that would like to see candidates use their money more creatively.
