Overseen: Historical Revisionism On The Columbia Facebook Page

Written by

Like most schools, Columbia has a somewhat propagandist social media presence (like, where do they find all those pictures of smiling students?). Yesterday, to that end, Columbia’s Facebook page posted a “reminder of what a winter day should look like on campus”– you mean, because it’s so warm? Or because snow in NYC seems to immediately turn to grey sludge?

Alums responded to the “reminder”, reminiscing about the days when people would go sledding down Low Steps…on food trays from John Jay? And they didn’t get fined by Public Safety (one fee for sledding down the steps, and another for vandalizing school property)? We at Bwog take this to be further proof that the War on Fun is real, and that Columbia is trying to rewrite its historically more fun past.

    A good Bwog 06 post was "tray spotting," which was lots of funny, brainy graffiti etched into the John Jay trays.
