  • Hi! My name is Teji, I'm a sophomore, I use she/her pronouns, and I'm excited to VP Communications this year! Here's a bit about me: I went to school in the Bronx, but I just moved to Connecticut which I try to keep on the down low. I’m hoping to double major in Computer Science and Visual Arts, so I have some stake in STEM and the Humanities. I hope to meet all of you soon!

  • I'm Mohammad Khalil and I am currently a junior from South Texas majoring in Neuroscience and Behavior. In addition to being your Religion Representative on campus, I also interview people with brain injury for Columbia Synapse, help serve food for less fortunate people at Community Lunch, and participate in Muslim Student Association and Interfaith activities around campus. I also love exploring wildlife, horseback riding, and exotic permaculture (growing tropical fruit/nut trees). As your Religion Representative, my goal is to address any obstacles in the way of practicing your faith and increase relevant activities for religious students on campus.

  • Hey everyone! My name is Elsa and I’ll be VP Campus Life for this coming academic year. I am a junior majoring in Film and Media Studies, and I love taking walks around the city, catching movies at small indie theaters, and spending time on Low Steps.

    We’re planning a bunch of events and initiatives to celebrate being back on campus and to make sure that everyone feels settled, included, and connected. We are thrilled to resume and amp up our favorite traditions like Tree Lighting Ceremony and Glasshouse Rock, yet we also aim to create new events like Fall Fest, Core class reunions, s’mores night, and more! We will also implement initiatives particularly centered around mental health on campus, making tangible steps toward more interconnected and supported life on campus.

  • Hi! My name is Chukwuma but most people call me Chuk. I’m a sophomore in CC majoring in neuroscience. I’m Nigerian, but I have also lived in NYC and London. This year, I’m hoping to improve the communication between the administration and the international community. There are many events, opportunities, and resources which could be beneficial, but most people are not aware of them. One of my goals is to revamp the International Buddy Program, to match incoming first years with upperclassmen, so they can learn more about what it means to be international at Columbia. So excited to be a part of CCSC this year and to advocate for other international students!
