While You Were in Jamaica

Written by

Aside from the lethal shooting of an NYU student, the burial of the kids and adults who didn’t make it out of that Bronx house fire, and about two days of above 65 degree weather, you didn’t miss much
in NYC. But at Columbia, on the other hand…just look at all of the exciting things that happened while you were gone:

The novelty of the Christmas decorations wore off halfway through the Yule Log bash, but the lights twinkled on for several snow-less months anyway. Yesterday, the holiday cheer was spotted bagged up and waiting for storage in Columbia’s musty attic until next year’s festivities.

Further down College Walk, a horde of baby journalists here for a Columbia Scholastic Press Association conference, wearing name tags and eager smiles, colonized Alma Mater. They’ve been crawling around campus all week. Go away!

And speaking of nuisances, Low Library is undergoing a “bird control project.” Luckily, the ugly scaffolding you may be able to see if you squint and look at the back of the photo at left, should be gone by tomorrow.

  1. i'm pretty sure  

    they just throw away the christmas lights, and buy new ones every year. they literally CLIP them off the trees with shears each spring, which renders the lights useless

  2. talk about

    a green campus. YEAH RIGHT COLUMBIA.

  3. wirc  

    Because the energy used for all that pretty lighting was not enough already?

  4. feeling old

    Look at those high schoolers. Practically an orgy with alma mater as the centerpiece.

    "Let's play lava! Don't sit on the steps or you'll die a terrible death! Like that guy in Volcano. With Tommy Lee Jones? Didn't see it, huh."

  5. think before posting  

    that's a pretty tasteless lead guys.

    Well, you know what they say....Whenever an NYU student is lethally shot, a CC student gains a greater sense of self-satisfaction

  8. Facebook Group?  

    Eventually NYU Students Will Occupy My Body Bags?
