Rats? Don’t know her. Hewitt Dining Hall has an A health rating now. A legend. We don’t deserve her. I always believed in her even when the haters looked down on her. I knew she could make this comeback.
We have reached out to Barnard for comment and will update this post if we receive a statement.
Update July 30th, 2018 9:50 PM: We have received a statement from Barnard:

This past Thursday, a Manhattan federal jury ruled that Geert Bekaert, a professor of economics at the Columbia Business School, is liable for retaliation against Enrichetta Ravina, a former researcher and assistant professor in the department, after she refused his sexual advances.
As reported in the New York Times, Bekaert worked with Ravina on her research, which involved data to which Bekaert had access. During meetings on this research project, Bekaert delayed Ravina’s work and made sexual advances towards her. Bekaert allegedly “told her of his sexual exploits and preferences, touched her inappropriately and asked that she call him ‘sexy.'”
Ravina reported this behavior to Columbia administrators. Columbia first gave Ravina a paid leave for the 2015-2016 academic year and accelerated her tenure process, then revoked that leave and denied her tenure a couple of months later. Meanwhile, Bekaert disparaged Ravina in emails to colleagues, calling her “incredibly evil,” “insane,” “unstable,” “schizophrenic” and an “incredibly mean b.”
Ravina filed two lawsuits in March 2016, accusing Bekaert and Columbia of gender discrimination, sexual harassment, and retaliation and seeing up to $30 million in damages. Last week, a Manhattan jury ruled that Bakaert is liable for retaliation and the university is liable for responsibility in that retaliation. However, the jury did not find Bakaert or Columbia liable for gender discrimination.
In the next week, the jury will hear arguments on emotional and economic hardship Ravina suffered due to Bekaert and the university’s actions, and damages will be determined.

Well, it’s not a literal tree, but there is a whole plant growing in a water fountain in Broadway Hall. It has a stem and leaves growing out of a crack in the fountain. It gets trimmed every few days but it always grows back as a testimony to the strength of Mother Nature and the strong will of life. The persevering spirit of this plant to grow to such an incredible length in a plastic water fountain despite its hardships (i.e. getting cruelly cut every few days) is truly inspirational. Who knows how big the part of the plant that’s hidden in the water fountain is? This plant really serves as a reminder that humans are ruining the planet and it really does not care if the summer residents of Broadway Hall are well-hydrated or not; it’s just going its own way. If anyone has suggestions for what to name this hardy boy, comment them below or send to firstname.lastname@example.org.

May is nothing but a distant, shimmering memory now, and we left even June behind. The best season of the year, Gemini season, is well behind us, and we are deep into Cancer season. Summer is entering that boring lull as the Fourth of July approaches and we are all starting to get tired of whatever we are doing, whether that be more classes, working, nothing, or sweating. Do you miss us yet? We sure miss our readers. Here’s what the first half of the summer has brought to Morningside Heights.
