The Northwest Corner Building needs a new name. Seriously (“this location of Joe will also soon offer beer and wine”), we can’t just wait around for somebody to donate enough money to change it – we need to take action. So Bwog calls upon you, brave readers, to generate a witticism of the highest order and leave it in the comments! We’ll put the best ones in our poll and then you will have played a part in making something a thing.
@Rusty Shackleford Place That Needs A Slide
(Giant Laboratory And Science Skyscraper)
“where’s that new science class?”
“Oh, it’s in Glass”
“Great, I’ve always wanted to take a Glass Class! What does the building look like?”
“It’s made of glass.”
“Fantastic! That’s so easy to remember!”
@i got it The When We Used Eminent Domain to Seize Land for Our Private Institution, We Built a Huge Building On The Last Vacant Lot On Campus So That We Didn’t Look Greedy Memorial Tower
@or the lookout station
@i think the iron maiden
@Anonymous The iron grid.
@Anonymous Office Max.
I thought when it was finished it would look less like a giant advertisement for staples and other assorted metal office-ware, but alas…I was wrong.
@Anonymous NoSci. To go with FroSci.
@Anonymous The Dodge Fitness Center Tower
@... the leonard c bollinger center for kids who can’t times good and wanna do other stuff good too.
@Anonymous the should call it ricky’s
@... No, why?
@Dear Bwog Uris 2, because that’s exactly what the building will be in 10 years. At least its not as putrid as the Diana Center
@Anonymous what’s putrid about the diana center?
@Obama You could name it after me. Maybe then I’d come to your damn graduation.
@anonymous someone did pay money to name it. everyone knows this building was made possible by a generous donation from Mr. and Mrs. Northwest Corner
@emma watson why can’t we just call it the Ministry of Magic?
@... booo lets call it the burrow, or Grimmauld place, godric’s hollow, little whinging or you could stop being five years old.
@Come at me, bro It is way too expensive to be the Burrow and is not nearly sketchy enough to be Grimmauld Place. Godric’s Hollow and Little Whinging are both towns, not buildings. Your argument is invalid.
@anonymous the Antiobservatory
@Indy The Temple of Doom
@Nip/nipl I will call it “the nip” or “niple” (pronounced nipple…)
so vote up on those.
@Anonymous there’s a geology major?
@Anonymous the Airvent. that’s always what i think of when i pass by.
@chael David Epstein Center in honor of professor David Epstein
@... Whoops just meant ISB
@Anonymous Stephan Vincenzo Hall
@hmm Dear non-science/engineering majors,
Please don’t come to science/engineering library. Go to library of your major or Butler. We don’t want to wait in line to use kick-ass win7 computers because of you guys.
@hey! the geology majors don’t know what they’ve got, in Scherm. it’s so quaint and pretty.
@Geology Major Oh, we know. And we love it. We also all think our department is the best thing ever.
@Anonymous huh there’s a geology major?
@uhm geology majors are parasites living in psychology building
@Anonymous U MAD?
@thegraduate Isn’t there a quotation above the entrance to Schermerhorn that makes reference to the Earth? Now I remember it: “Speak to the Earth and it shall teach ye… ” So perhaps they, and not you, were in fact the originally intended residents.
@Uncommon name It was the biology building til they got relocated.
@Rawree DEES FTW
@Geology Major Not as such; it’s part of the Department of Earth and Environment Science. One graduates it with either a degree in earth science or in environmental science (or both, if you’re particularly ambitious).
@Maybe Just “NewScience” one word, simple straight forward.
if not, I am going to second NIP as mentioned from above.
@Anonymous okay, but can you get your hand out of your underwear?
@A concerned citizen in McBain 5 ehm….let’s see.
It’s okay But and Vadge, you’ve got company.
@Anonymous The Heat Sink.
@The ID as in freud’s id… for Interdisciplinary science. Or the ID or ID Building as in CU ID
@Anonymous “Mission Accomplished”
@Anonymous the panopticon.
@ryan jesus that’s awesome
@Pop Tarts Oh yes.
@already taken broadway is the panopticon. check it out for yourself.
@blasphemy? the office of the corporate board (EIC, ME, publisher) at Spec is the panopticon too…
@Anonymous The Radiator
@MYL The Terrarium
You know, where you can see all the engineers in their natural habitat.
@Rawree ultra likeee!
@i think the vag needs a friend on campus – plus i really want to call something “the peen.”
@I think I understand Poopin’ (Pupin) and Peeing? Scoopin’ and Poopin’?
@we could do the “Ween.” it will follow in the same vein (sorry) of Shapiro and Claremont, with both a res hall and a classroom building.
@Make it “The Wein” so that instead of spellingfail, people are just guilty of misdirection.
@Spellingfail The dorm is “Wien”, not “Wein”
@Anonymous pretty sure that’s the point.
@i think somehow my suggestion didn’t make it into the poll. WE WAS ROBBED.
@Anonymous Do we seriously need more buildings that only have coffee shops in them (as far as food/beverages go)? I mean, coffee is nice and all, but when my ass is hungry, I want FOOD OPTIONS on campus. And I don’t just mean a scone or something.
@Anonymous You can use the new 120th street entrance to head down that deli down there somewhere.
@ZACA 4local ftw
@I got a name We can call it “proof this school has too much money”
or wait, wait, why not: “why financial aid isn’t better” Or maybe that can be the name for the top 8 stories that.
I swear I’m not bitter, NoCo sounds cool.
@Anonymous The ACU, as in Air Conditioning Unit
@My thoughts exactly Which is funny because a longer official name also works: 2ACU, for Air Conditioning Unit At Columbia University.
@Anonymous The Cheesegrater
@Sean Parker (played by Justin Timberlake) Lose “the.” It’s cleaner.
@Lol I’ve been calling that building a “cheesegrater” ever since they put up those unsightly panels on the outside. Here-Here!
@Lysistrata “I will not adopt the Lioness-on-a-Cheesegrater Position!”
@Joe Mama the AC (big ass Air Conditioner)
@Joe Star Wars
@At least go a little further... …like, R2D2
@alum Kluge Hall.
@Anonymous that guys pays for poor kids to come here
@Anonymous receiving financial aid doesn’t necessarily mean you’re poor.
@how about NoCo. It’s like SoHo, but different.
@uhh Someone already said that
@Science facility Cause there’s a Physics lab connected to it
Now, all we have to do is BC rush Princeton and we win.
now that’s simple
@Sounds fine How are the floors numbered? As long as there’s a fourth floor…
@The N.W.C. Because it’s where Niggaz Wit Class go.
@Anonymous the newck
@ryan the thing
@Anonymous charlie and the great glass elevator
@Anonymous Bad porn flick?
