Love Means Never Having to Walk to Fairway

Written by

Yesterday, we received an email from Scott Wright, the Vice President of Student Auxiliary and Business Services. Some of you, Bwog guesses, may not be in the habit of reading every email you receive from the Department of Student Auxiliary and Business Services. In fact, some of you may actually delete these emails on a fairly consistent basis.

However, yesterday’s correspondence was actually quite informative. Besides announcing the old-ish news about the ability to use Flex points off-campus, Wright includes a link to Transportation Services’ website, specifically a map of the Studebaker Shuttle. To Bwog’s delight (and surprise) the shuttle runs from the Columbia campus (picking up students in a few locations, including Lerner and the Amsterdam side of the gates) to the Studebaker Building on 131st street, which, Wright points out, is a short walk from Fairway. Fairway, which Wright also points out, now accepts Flex points. Everything comes full circle, much like the Studebaker Shuttle, which will drop you and your heavy grocery bags back at the Columbia gates.

The email also includes this titillating parenthetical: “(We are also exploring the possibility of operating a shuttle directly between campus and Fairway Market.)”

    is great. Students would be a lot happier if more staff took customer service as seriously as he does

    Gmail custom time:

    "Yes. You'll only be able to send email back until April 1, 2004, the day we launched Gmail. If we were to let you send an email from Gmail before Gmail existed, well, that would be like hanging out with your parents before you were born -- crazy talk."

    haha. The custom time idea is a cool but whacky idea though.
