Tipster and video game enthusiast Nick Camp directs Bwog’s attention to the new Grand Theft Auto IV, specifically the Varsity Heights neighborhood of Liberty City. Buildings eerily similar to Low, Butler, and Hamilton are located just off Ivy Drive—there’s even a College Walk.
Bwog daily editor Paul Barndt pointed out that this homage to Alma Mater is much more accurate than Columbia’s representation in the Spiderman games, “where Low is like 15 feet tall.” Bwog contributor and resident GTAIV expert Alex Weinberg was kind enough to snap some screen shots as “he” stood on “Ruggles” with a sniper.
