SSStrange Markings Behind Earl

Written by

It’s that time of year again when many of ’09’s student leaders, activist types, overachievers, and masthead ascenders will be tapped and asked to join a senior society. A tipster sends evidence in the form of a photo of the sidewalk in back of Earl Hall: Three S’s, the (dark?) mark of one of Columbia’s two (secret?) senior societies, the Sachems.
