The Columbia University Figure Skating Club (CUFSC) is a group of students who are interested in figure skating. We vary greatly in our level of expertise; many of our members have been skating for most of their lives, while others are learning how to skate. Anyone who is interested in skating with us, helping us out with events, or even just attending events is welcome to join our club.
CUFSC was founded both to promote skating at Columbia so that skaters who come to Columbia will be encouraged to continue skating and also to introduce other students to the rewards of figure skating. The club aims to provide experiences for both beginning and advanced skaters through educational and competitive programs. The club will create opportunities that would otherwise not exist on campus for members of the Columbia family. This year our goals include subsidizing the cost of ice sessions at Chelsea Piers, attending sessions at Chelsea Piers together, working with the Figure Skating in Harlem program, obtaining US Figure Skating memberships for all members, distributing CUFSC clothing to all our members, nurturing prospective judges, and attending competitions and other events together.
