But This Is Like A Tradition!

Written by

Bwog wouldn't be surprised.

Bwog has seen Butler camping and even orated on its behalf.  But if you’re in CC or SEAS, today you received an email from your senators which may threaten that sacred masochistic rite.

Amidst standard student government “we want to hear what you want” business-as-usual, Bwog found this bit:

Libraries and Technology – Contact: Kenny Durell
We are working with CUIT to set the groundwork for a program employing student programmers for University projects. We are also a part of conversations regarding a switch to Gmail or another outsourced email provider, pending legal and privacy concerns. We hope to find a solution that works for everyone. In the Libraries Committee, we are working to extend hours on the upper floors of Butler and perhaps implement a peer-enforced anti-camping program.

“Peer-enforced” measures against camping?  Could this be politico-jargon for “We can’t do anything about this so we’ll put it on you students” perhaps?  Bwog isn’t sure, but warns you–stay vigilant!

  2. yay  

    I'm in favor of this, seats are too scarce for people to get to save seats forever. It's unfair.

  3. just great  

    "peer-enforced anti-camping program"?

    Just what we need, self-righteous busybodies empowered by the administration to bitch at us. Seriously, there's a reason we don't have an honor code. The last thing Columbians need is an excuse to judge one another!

    "peer enforced anti-camping program" sounds like antsy people moving your stuff the second you get up to get some coffee or go to the bathroom.

    Not that I don't want the chance to get a seat that has been unoccupied but reserved for 2+ hours...

  5. YES  

    just give me a reason balcony folks; just one goddamn reason.

    Better pee while washing your hands because I'm coming for yo shit.

    how the hell would that work?

    Butler only gets really crowded during Midterms and finals. Even, then it's not really that crazy but for peak hours. If we need more space, which we really do during those times, then open up classrooms and keep other libraries open later! We have the space, just let us use it! Instead of peer-enforcing camping, just peer-enforce the usage of Hamilton, Kent, and Pupin.

  7. Hogwarts  

    Hogwarts Inquisition Squad much?

  8. Dumbledore's Army

    Watch out for the Inquisatorial Squad... Soon we won't be able to assemble in groups of three or more.

  9. just  

    dont let barnard people into columbia libraries and we wont need to worry about any of this

  10. ...  

    fuckit. just setup tables, chairs, extension cords and surge strips in the lerner party space and leave it open 24 hours.

  11. what  

    email was this associated with? could Bwog post the whole thing?

  12. this is awesome  

    I want to make a peer anti-camping task force (PANT..F). Fire hoses, tear gas, batons - anything we need to get these rascals out of the library. Who's with me?
