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,


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
