From Columbia/Barnard Hillel's Facebook yesterday:
This evening at 8:00PM, Columbia University Apartheid Divest (CUAD) will present a referendum to Columbia College Student Council (CCSC) urging Columbia to join the movement to boycott, divest, and sanction Israel (BDS). There will then be a vote about whether to put this referendum on the ballot for CCSC's general elections in a few weeks.
Here is a series of tweets from last night by Daniella Greenbaum about the proposed BDS resolution being presented to the student council:

Students at Columbia have been debating whether to put #bds on ballot for last 3 hours. No decision as of yet— daniella greenbaum (@DGreenbaum) April 3, 2017
Very proud of @DoreFeith and the rest of the pro israel students at Columbia. Student council vote is in-- #bds will not go to a vote— daniella greenbaum (@DGreenbaum) April 3, 2017
I have heard that Scripps College also blocked a BDS motion last night, but cannot confirm.
