WoMen’s Rugby Club
Our muscles are sore, our bodies are bruised… But we are CHAMPIONS!!!!
Columbia A defeated Wharton A 2-1 for the CUP WORLD CHAMPIONSIP!*
Columbia B defeated Wharton B in sudden death (with only 4 players left on the field!) for the PLUNGER WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!*
It was an amazing weekend filled with memories and friendships that will last a lifetime. Afterward, we toted about ten members of the guys’ team back to Durham and turned the bus into the best club North Carolina has ever seen. Dancing delight magically developed- the likes of which included crowd surfing and real, live rapping by a Columbia MBA student. It was CRAYZAY! We went out to Shooters dressed as “Where’s Waldo,” which was a hit!
*Note: Both trophies are currently in a state of disrepair due to excessive celebration, but I have confidence in superglu
Men’s Rugby Club
Volleyball Club gives CBS students the chance to get to know their classmates in a non-academic setting, relieve some of the stress of the classroom, and, of course, hone their volleyball skills! As a club we have participated in Intramurals as well as tournaments held at HBS and Wharton in the past. We encourage players of all levels to come out and play. We accept people who:
1) Are too delicate to play Rugby
2) Lack athletic abilities to play basketball/football
3) Are not skillful enough to compete in Golf/Squash/Tennis
4) Don’t know how to surf or sail
Note: Be rest assured that your executive board has been chosen in accordance to these guiding principles.”
Snow sports club
The purpose of the Snow Sports Club is to foster an insane love of cold weather, ‘80s winter apparel, hot tubs, and the occasional bit of sliding down mountains, through our annual ski trip (the biggest trip at Columbia Business School) and more snow related shenanigans on some of our local mountains in the Northeast. This year we traveled to Utah in January and easily won the most fun team award at the annual Tuck Winter Carnival in February when we compete against other “top business schools” for best outfits/ dance skills while attempting to race through gates.
The squash club has practices once per week, as well as impromptu play by virtue of an active ladder. The club hosts one internal tournament each semester, and sometimes travels to play other business schools.
Experience and ability vary widely and all skill levels are welcome. This year, we’re looking into having sessions for beginners/intermediate players with a squash pro, so don’t worry if you’ve never played before.
Football (Soccer) Club
Practices are usually held two times per week near campus, and scrimmages with other teams in the New York area are also held. The club competes in tournaments against other major business schools from the United States and Europe. All ability levels are encouraged to participate.
“Futbol is church for me. Playing at CBS with the guys in the Football club has been awesome – it really balances life.” Tim Lorenzo
“I am football player trapped in the body of a CBS student, it’s always been like that, but it’s ok, because I found in this club brothers with the same issue, from the 5 continents, and from the most diverse backgrounds. I tore my ACL in our last tournament, but that only increased my fervor to be part of this amazing club and be closer to my brothers.” Armando Llaza
