Dining would like to remind you that the heady days of freshmen’s Columbia Points are no more. This year, the points were abolished in favor of Dining Dollars for all. Really! The dining website says so.

Besides having a marginally less embarrassing name, the only advantage of Dining Dollars is that they don’t expire at the end of the year. But that’s a pretty important advantage. Freshmen, let it be known: you don’t have to spend your 200 remaining dollars over the next ten days on an unhealthy amount of sushi and those godawful apple cinnamon rice cakes from JJ’s. Save it for next year’s sophomore slump, when choosing a major drives you to eat your stress away.
