Lerner gets a student lounge, and more space in Butler
By Sonalee Rau
Highlights from Monday night’s meeting:
- Columbia Libraries are piloting a program in graduate reading rooms to keep the spaces open during finals. Rooms on the fifth and eighth floors of Butler will be open, adding an additional 150 seats in the library.
- Wilfred Chan and Karishma Habbu spoke representing the Student Wellness Project, as they did at the CCSC meeting. Join the CU Student Forum Googlegroup at http://groups.google.com/group/cu-student-forum to be notified about meetings and take part in discussions.
- The council passed a resolution about renovating Lerner to provide more free student space. This lounge must be non-reservable, accessible to all Columbia and Barnard undergraduate students, student enterprises should be given the opportunity to open a food provider in the space, and there should be space available for student artwork to be displayed or performed. The Student Space Project will make decisions about furnishing, decoration, lighting, and all other design specifications in conjunction with the councils.
- Tree lighting is almost here! The ceremony will take place on Dec. 1 from 6-7 p.m. and will feature appearances by all four undergraduate deans.
