As Seen on College Walk: Stormy Weather

Written by

It may have been the first week of spring, but Mr. Sun had yet to rear his golden head. Lots of rain was in the forecasts this week, and campus style adapted accordingly. The trend seemed to be towards deep tones, heavy fabrics, and dark boots; still, everyone expressed optimism about the warmer weather ahead.

Kim Smith, Visitor, College Walk

What brings you to Columbia? I’m visiting with my sister. I’m showing her around the area—Tom’s, the cathedral. . .

Where are you going? Oh man. Wherever the wind takes us. We’re looking for some good chocolate. . . we just went to Max Brenner; we went to Jacques Torres yesterday. I got a butterscotch milkshake in an Alice cup.

What’s your favorite dessert? Chocolate!

Morgan Jefferson, BC ’13, Barnard Quad

Where did you get your outfit? Topshop

Is it hard to coordinate outfits with the crutches? Yeah, because I have to wear this ugly boot!

What is your favorite class this semester? Anthropology.

Meron Gribetz, GS and Sara Frantzen, NYU; The Steps

What are your majors? Gribetz: Comp Sci & Neuro Sci. Frantzen: Art History & Business.

What inspired your outfits today? Gribetz: I was actually very inspired by Bob Dylan this morning. . . here, I’ll show you the pictures. (Pulls out iPhone and shows this and this). You know, this style of glasses became popular because of Bob Dylan. Frantzen: No inspiration really, I guess Bob Dylan’s sidekick!

What are you two most excited about for spring weather in New York? Both: Central Park, definitely. Gribetz I actually really like that little patch over there, Riverside Park, too.

Are you here for CCO? No—we were about to walk all the way downtown, but we got sidetracked by the performances.

    "The sound of a hundred insecure douches cracking their fingers ready to attack, engulfed Morningside..."

    Aim for the one with the crutches folks, she's weak and will far more easily.

    ooo the second girl is so cute! She has such a sweet smile. I also like everyone's jackets.

    I think crutches looks nice, but the first girl looks foolish. Why was she chosen? Because I really don't see it. The couple is okay, but boring; I think about 60-70% of the campus dresses like that.
