Happening right now, in the Lerner piano lounge, an explosion of light-blue frosted baked goods and free Columbia apparel. The event is designed to kick off a season of CC school spirit. “After everything that happened last semester, we want to remind people what they love about Columbia,” explained Michelle Diamond, CCSC Preisdent.
She stood in front of a table overflowing with light blue t-shirts that appropriately advertise “i am light blue.” It’s meta-spirit! Because the shirt is light blue. CCSC officers frantically distributed the shirts to a line that wrapped up the Lerner ramps, nearly reaching Ferris Booth.
Newly be-shirted CCers snacked on cookies catered from Kitchenette. Next up on CCSC’s flourishing cookie distribution agenda? “Frosting with Alexander Hamilton on it,” said Diamond.
Until then, we wait.
Bwog made a detour to the ATM in 212, and on our way back inside Lerner the security guard manning the front desk inquired about the mob scene. “Oh what! You mean this is all about cookies? People are coming out of their dorms just to get cookies?! This is Columbia—you guys pay like 30 grand! Aren’t you fed enough?”
