Windows Into Columbia’s Soul

With only a month of school left, this is a sad time for many seniors, who look around them and can’t help but feel waves of nostalgia issuing from all corners of this revered, and remarkably architecturally homogeneous campus. Soon-to-be graduate David Roche sent us this gem, and we were so touched that we thought we would send out a call for any and all nostalgic photos of the Columbia campus, the best of which will be posted closer to the time of graduation. Please send photos to Happy (sad) snapping!

    @alumnus Graduated last year and still miss Columbia every day. Enjoy it while you can, even if it sucks the life out of you. There’s no place like it.

    @hmmm... Cute, but definitely not blog-worthy. Sorry.

    @Anonymous I’m no photographer or Photoshop wizard, but I get the feeling that a simple black and white would have worked in place of the underwater vibe.

      @Dave Yeah, I am certainly not a photographer. I was just going for a hint of Columbia blue, and it is now evident that it comes off looking like a scene from Deep Blue Sea. Apparently, Sam Jackson might have to kill some mother-f***ing sharks on this campus.

        @Anonymous I like the photo!

      2. I am light blue says:

        @I am light blue It the color fits in with today’s bwog theme. On all other occasions, use

      3. It works says:

        @It works People who criticize art just don’t “get it” yet. You were clearly echoing the bluish-green tones of the corroded copper roofs of many of our oldest buildings.

  • hmm yes says:

    @hmm yes I will be quite nostalgic about my college days when Columbia is underwater, thanks for the insight Bwog

      @Dave The picture is social commentary on the swim test.

  • typo? says:

    @typo? You typed Columbia’s soul?

    Did you mean Columbia’s foul?

    Just read the bloodbath on ASOCW.

        @Anonymous you support my point.

          @Anonymous that you don’t have a sense of humor? I’m confused.

            means nothing in the end.
