    '09 Alice in Wonderland

    Is this not a beautiful tradition?

  6. Yay!  

    Thank you, Bacchanal, thank you! Possibly the only campus event that actually brings everyone at Columbia together as a community.

    Please have as few rules as possible for CTF, I want to see people get creative. =)

  8. holy crap  

    super excited for 4/20. Alice!!!!

    also is the concert open to the public or just CUID peeps?

  9. Alum

    Whats the deal with the concert? can you get onto campus with a columbia ID or do you actually need to pay the $25 to columbia arts for a ticket if you're no longer a student

  10. Bacchanal  

    The event is open to alumni and the gates to campus will be open. Although it advertises CUID only, non CUID holders will be able to access campus.

  11. wat  

    500 internets to whoever chose Alice!

  12. Lucy Alice  

    who's bringing the acid
