PSS -- Polish Student Society at Columbia University


About PSS

The Polish Club, also known as the Polish Student Society at Columbia University and Barnard College, exists to promote greater understanding of Polish culture, public affairs, society, and history throughout the Columbia community. One need not be Polish to join, but may simply be interested in the country and its rich and ancient traditions. We are recognized by both Barnard and Columbia. We bring internationally renowned speakers to campus, hold exhibitions, memorials and traditional holiday celebrations in the Polish custom, present screenings of movies by great Polish film directors, hold a regular informal Polish conversation hour for those seeking to get in touch again with their legacy and language skills, and lead gourmet field trips to Greenpoint in Brooklyn. We also march in the annual Pulaski Day Parade with a Columbia banner and keep in touch with our counterparts at NYU to discuss joint projects and to support each other's mission. When all is said and done, we are a group remarkably supportive of each other that has a great time with revivals of a culture that stood at the cradle of the American revolution as much as the French did, and has contributed many heroes to its legacy. Not less than 75 million Americans nowadays claim Polish heritage and descent, and we enjoy reaching out to them in every way we can, as well as to institutions, scholars and organizations in Poland.
