Things That Happened On Thursday
Written by Bwog Staff
A few things of note happened on campus today.
First, a man named Bryan sat in a kiddie pool and splashed around outside Hamilton. Why’d ya do it, Bry?
Then, embattled Congressman Charlie Rangel provided the keynote speech at the NYC Economic Development Luncheon in Roone. His speech was entitled “The status of the National Small Business Legislation,” but he spoke mostly about Wall Street greed and about the controversy surrounding his 13 ethics violations. Robert Kasdin, Senior Vice President of Columbia, was there too, to talk to small business owners in Harlem about Manhattanville. The audience applauded with each statistic: 6,000 new University jobs, 1,200 construction jobs, and so on.
Next, a bunch of campers ran up and down the Lerner ramps sending orange paper airplanes to the lobby.
