Pottermania: A Retrospective

Written by

Thursday night we gave a forecast of impending Harry Potter madness. Today we follow up with a retrospective of all the wonderful Potter pride that we witnessed. Here are some highlights:

  • Lots of Columbia/Barnard people were spotted at the 3:30 AM IMAX show at Lincoln Square.
  • One gay student on campus wore a t-shirt to the midnight showing that said “Dumbledore Pride!” in rainbow letters.
  • A Dobby donning brown paper ears, a tag that said “SPEW!” and a sock pinned to a cut-up pillowcase was seen roaming about campus.
  • Harry Potter got a special shout-out at the Bad Poetry contest.

A number of students were spotted out in group costumes:

And if you still have doubts about how much Columbia LOVES Harry Potter, the following information should be of great comfort: a commenter tips that the line to the midnight show at 84th Street pictured below broke out in a rousing rendition of “Roar, Lion, Roar.”
