Remember that day when we all maybe thought that Barnard would be written into the Gossip Girl plotline and they’d film at Barnard all the time and everything would be pretty much the same, except some people would be excited but most people would be annoyed?

The sun has set on that day, friends. After consulting with the Admissions Office/some Barnard students, the Barnard administration has decided not to allow the Gossip Girl team to film on campus. The students who helped decide whether GG should film at BC received an email explaining the no-go: “During negotiations,” the email read, “it became clear that the interests of the producers and the interests of the College were likely to conflict at some future point.”

Take solace in the fact that Gossip Girl films on Claremont every five minutes, and that the cast pretends they go to Columbia.
