Breaking: Lottery Winners Contacted!

Written by

The luckiest student in the whole world just forwarded Bwog The  Email sent from Student Programs and Events just a few minutes ago.

So, start checking your mailboxes and start the morning off with an inbox full of (or should we say empty of!) disappointment.

Email that you will never receive after the jump.

 


Dear student,

Congratulations!

We are pleased to inform you that your name has been selected in a random lottery for one ticket to the ServiceNation Presidential Candidates Forum.

To claim your ticket, please come to the East Ramp Lounge on the campus level of  Alfred Lerner Hall on Tuesday, September 9 between 2:30 and 5:00 p.m. or on Wednesday, September 10 between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.  You will be required to show a valid student ID card with the matching name and uni as that selected in the lottery. Tickets are non-transferable.  Only the ticket winner may pick up the ticket (i.e. your friend/family member may not pick it up for you).  If you do not pick up your ticket during time period stated above and do not make alternate arrangements with us ahead of time, your ticket will be forfeited and reassigned to an alternate lottery winner.

Admission to the Forum will open at 4:30 p.m., and will close at 6:30 p.m. Columbia student ID along with ticket verification will be required. No one will be allowed into the auditorium after the doors are shut. No bags, briefcases, purses, food or beverages, banners, signs, or electronic devices of any kind (including laptops, cameras and cellular phones) will be allowed into the building. Guests will be required to enter through a metal detector. Re-entry will not be permitted.

Please REPLY TO THIS EMAIL to confirm receipt. If you are unable to pick up your ticket during the arranged period or have other questions, please contact Koren Manning at 212-851-7423 or [email protected].

Sincerely,

University Programs and Events

    I GOT ONE AN EMAIL TOO. I FEEL LIKE A JUST GOT THE GOLDEN WRAPPER IN CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY. sorry caps WERE needed this morning

  5. awwwww  

    ivygate can't get in? but you're so important!

    with this many students trying to get such a limited number of tickets, i can see why people would try to pull whatever strings they can to get in, but there'd be no way to justify half the student audience comprising kids from the plethora of relevant student groups. i don't think being a member of something media or politics related should make you somehow more qualified to see this event up close.

  6. ...  

    here's an idea. at the end of the day, the difference between sitting inside and outside is whether or not you'll be able to annoy friends and strangers with stories of when you "saw barack and john at columbia university," right?

    well so here's what you do. stay out of sight on the day of the event, watch the thing on cnn.com. pretend that you saw it live, and annoy everyone anyway. no one will be the wiser! (and, if you get bored, you can always search youtube for "freaks out" during the boring bits about service or whatever.)

    IMPORTANT: make sure your IM clients are closed and stay off facebook or any other application that reports your status as online.

    Feels so much like a college acceptance letter, don't it?

  8. wait  

    Did everyone who didn't get in receive a "rejection" e-mail? I didn't get either messages.

  9. ewww  

    Who else thought that was a picture of a dirty tampon?

  10. ...  

    Regarding reservations in Hamilton, on Wednesday night:

    "Your event has been relocated to an alternate venue due to a University supported event of national significance."

    • haha  

      woah they are doing that for hamilton too? I thought it was just lerner.
      This is what mine said.
      "Your event has been relocated to an alternate venue due to a University supported event of national significance. This planned event will be large and with security. "
      haha in case we live under a rock they don't even tell us what the event is!
