While Bwog enjoyed the sunny weather on such a splendid day, several things also caught our attention:
Bacchanal festivities coincided with today’s, er, other special celebrations, including Battle of the Bands, a much-too-limited barbecue, a moonwalk, and a sorority-sponsored “munchies” sale. Columbia’s beloved mascot was also spotted roaming about (pictured to the right), giving hugs and shaking hands with the chilled-out student crowd around College Walk. In the meantime, pre-frosh were abundant for SEAS Days on Campus. Talk about hyperbolic advertising.
- Bwog reader Alex Port brings us news that the Joseph Urban stage models on the third floor of Butler (which have been there for ages) have been removed. What will the Butler treasure chest reveal to us next? Perhaps Robert Moses models instead?
- As if the to-be-built Northwest Science Building weren’t enough, the J-School plans on doing some construction of its own. The Stabile Student Center is scheduled to open in Fall 2007, complete with café space, outdoor seating, and a glass enclosure. Glass is all the rage in these parts, it seems…
- Since we’re on the theme of architecture: SEAS Class Day speaker Santiago Calatrava has designed a 2,000-foot tall Chicago tower that could trump every other building in America. Daaamn. [Insert “ivory tower” joke here.]
- Spectator‘s most recent multimedia project happens to be on the arrest of Robert Williams, although it seems a bit New York Post-ish for the Spec’s image. Really, “Perp Walk,” guys?
