The WikiCU how to guides launched in 2013 as a collaboration between the Communications Committees of CCSC, ESC, GSSC, and SGA and the WikiCU management team. The goal of these guides is to centralize information dispersed over a myriad of Columbia websites and to make it easier for students and campus groups to navigate Columbia University, Morningside Heights, and New York City. By hosting the guides on WIkiCU, as opposed to other Columbia sites, information can be kept up-to-date and any member of the Columbia community with a WikiCU account may contribute.
