CU Personality Drinks
Written by Mary Welsh
Bwog staff brainstormed to match the personality of Columbia colleges to their respective alcoholic drink.
CC students are overwhelmingly vanilla. Think gin & tonic and vodka cranberry. Basically, anything of which Ron Swanson would not approve. The language kids, however, are known for the unremarkable red and white wines served at every open house. We like to think that these bottles are from treasure-trove shipwrecks in the Mediterranean, but in reality they’ve probably been lurking in the dusty cabinets of the Classics professors for decades.
SEAS students rarely get wild because they’re on that 24/7 study grind. They run on sole adrenaline. Virgin cocktails only– Shirley Temples are favorites. Stay on high alert for wasted SEAS students– they’re an endangered species.
One of our Bwog staffers nailed Barnard. “Coconut rum & hibiscus tea: perfectly reminiscent of the classy / trashy barnard girl dichotomy AND effectively mimics every white barnard girl from new england’s fake tan bc she wants to seem well-traveled.” ‘Nuff said.
GS students like people to think that they’re gruff and old-school. Prefers neat whiskey/jagermeister concoctions. Alternatively, whatever’s on tap at Arts & Crafts.
