Student councils release statement in support of GS students
The student councils of Columbia College, Barnard, and SEAS have released a joint statement affirming their support for the graduating seniors of GS, and offering $2,012 (get it?) to help pay for the alternate reception being held for students on the original class day, May 14.
Read the full statement below:
In Support of the Students of the School of General Studies
The Columbia College Student Council, Engineering Student Council, and Student Government Association of Barnard College would like voice our collective support for the students of the School of General Studies. We are disappointed that President Obama’s visit will prevent some graduates, and their friends and families, from attending General Studies Class Day.
As a sign of our support, we offer $2,012 towards the alternate reception on May 14 for those graduates and their families who were not able to change their travel plans, pending further decisions about its funding from the administration. We hope that President Bollinger, as well as Dean Awn, Dean Rodgers, and Dean Limardo, will continue to look for ways to help those affected.
