the one day a year Columbia tries to be happy

Any visitor to Columbia during Bacchanal will see campus completely transformed. Check out the fun, fresh, (and sometimes questionable) activities that your fellow Columbians engaged in!

New Places:
– Went to Carnegie Hall mildly drunk
– Declined an invitation to KDR
– Walked into sig nu and immediately left and went back to bed for a few hours
– Went to a frat (Beta and KDR) for the first time ever

New People:
– Went to a frat (sig nu?), made out with a guy that was my architect arch nemesis last semester. Tbh kinda hot
– Got many compliments on my shirt with a picture of carravigio’s bacchus with marijuana leaves in his hair
– Officially became the mom of my friend group/fraternity
– Made friends with a lovely security guard named Valentine. In general the backstage staff did phenomenal work for such a difficult job and I have so much love for them!
– Met my celebrity crush, Almand

New Experiences:
– Tried to do some reading on the lawns but ended up taking a nap instead
– Waked and baked
– Started drinking at 7:30am
– Was decently drunk by 9am
– Was fully asleep in my bed by 2:30pm.
– Slept until 7:30pm. Missed the whole concert
– My friend was carrying my bottle of tequila in a canvas bag and it ripped open and smashed on the ground in front of ec during holi. Me and my friends left as fast as possible.
– Blacked out. When my friend came to check on me I was peeing in my trash can
– Tried a new drug
– Danced onstage with AlunaGeorge

everyone get ready to partaaaaaay

Happening in the United States: On Friday, California Governor Jerry Brown ended the drought emergency for the vast majority of the state. His announcement is a formal announcement that California’s six-year drought has finally ended. (The New York Times)

Happening in New York City: The New York Police Department (NYPD) will be starting the use of body cameras on 1,200 of its police officers by the end of the month. (CBS New York)

Happening on Campus: Unless you’re living under a rock (or in Carlton Arms), you know that today’s Bacchanal! Pick up your wristbands by 12pm at your designated area, and get to the concert by 12:30pm! Be safe and have fun!

Overheard: “I dare you to only speak in adjectives for the whole day.”

Helpful Bacchanal Tips: If you haven’t already, check out Bwog’s compiled list of advice for today’s bacchanalian festivities! Here are our three of our favorite tips from the list:

  • Stick with friends. Have fun, but make sure to keep your friends close. Don’t get separated, keep your phone on you (make sure it’s charged!), and keep an eye on how much you’re all drinking to ensure that everyone will make it to the concert later.
  • Drink water and pee beforehand. You can’t bring water into the concert (but you’ll probably need it), and you’ll lose your spot in the crowd if you need to leave to pee. Make sure to chug water and use the bathroom beforehand.
  • Don’t be fucking rude to the other people in the crowd. Don’t push, don’t elbow, don’t snap at people. We’re all excited, and we’re all trying to have a good time–no need to bring that competitive Columbia spirit into the only day of the year devoted to fun on this campus.
