Floorpi loves its events and bureaucracy, if you couldn't tell. We have many hall comms, which are responsible for carrying out certain duties or for managing a few specific events. All the comms can be reached at commcubator@, or email floorpi-[commname]@ if you want to reach an individual comm.

View currently elected comms in Hall Government.

Comms are elected in the fall and spring, see Hall Chair.

MusicComm was originally formed in the Fall of 2012 to buy a piano for hall. By January 2013, it had succeeded! MusicComm's current responsibilities include:

  • Maintenance of the piano, including arranging for it to be tuned once or twice a year.
  • Loosely monitoring use of the piano and resolving any disputes related to hall members' use of the piano.
  • Buying and keeping track of hall sheet music.
  • Organizing Open Mic.


in charge of organizing weekly movie nights and buying snacks for them.


in charge of maintaining tech equipment on hall. Consolidated from AVComm, formerly known as TechComm. The proper way to pronounce it is by making air quotes before saying comm, with the air quotes denoting the empty string, which is the name of the comm.


in charge of determining how the Dragon, which mysteriously appeared in Spring 2019, came to be. Also in charge of investigating other hall mysteries, keeping track of cruft and alerting people when cruft is missing, and for dragging meetings on.
