As the class of 2009 departs Columbia, the bright lights of New York will have at least one symbol of their achievements: CCSC has secured the chance for the Empire State Building to be lit up in light blue and white next Wednesday night.

According to CCSC President George Krebs, the project was “spearheaded” by CC ’09’s Jenni O’Reilly-Jones (also president of CASO). Columbia joins several other organizations playing around with the lights, including NYU this past Tuesday, the FDNY this weekend, and Fleet Week starting next Thursday.
