Chris Kulawik, CC '08, is a well-known conservative student.
Kulawik would be considered a "normal" at most universities, but is viewed as an extreme right-wing fascist at Columbia. In an interview with the New York Times he referred to himself as the "most hated person on campus".
Kulawik also write a column called "Chris Shrugged" for the Columbia Spectator. During his first year of writing the column, he would often write columns to provoke campus leftists, for example calling for the renaming of the Malcolm X Lounge. In the past year, however, he seems to have moderated his rhetoric somewhat.
