As our tipster notes, today is the first of two Days on Campus, and Columbia’s crawling with prefrosh and their parents. Here’s a choice quote from the activities fair held earlier today in Lerner:
Columbia Student to a prospective student, while convincing him to sign up for a student group: So, where are you from?
Prospective Student: New Jersey.
Columbia Student: All right, dirty Jerz!
Prospective Student: Haha… yeah.
His mom, as the prospective student cringes: Actually, we’re from one of the most desirable counties in the nation.
