Our, um, highest congratulations to the art history department, who have installed a coffee machine in a lounge in Schermerhorn. They’ve circulated the news like it’s the birth of the Messiah. Or something.
And they’re going to charge!?
Read the gospel email after the jump.
Dear Art History Community,
As many of you are now aware, a new coffee machine has graced the new
lounge space in what was the old slide library on the 8th floor of
Schermerhorn. For those of you who have not had the chance to try it
out, please do so at your earliest convenience.
Currently, we are in a trial phase with the machine and so costs have
been minimal for the department. However, once this period ends at the
end of October, the department expects to incur a level of expense
that must be partially offset so as to be able to continue to provide this
service in the future. Therefore, starting on or around Nov.1, the
machine will no longer be free, but will cost $0.25 per use.
Thank you for your understanding.
Columbia University Dept. of Art History & Archaeology
