Latest addition to the list of rules no one used to care about, but you now cannot break because Columbia is broke: that coffee is for special people only!
An anonymous Computer Engineering student received this email yesterday. (EE stands for Electrical Engineering ; those students got this email via their listserv as well.)
Dear EE/CE students,
Many of you have been taking advantage of the free coffee in the EE kitchen, Room 1307 MUDD. Unfortunately, it has gotten to the point where we can no longer allow this. The area is intended for the use of the EE staff, faculty, and visitors. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
