They’re Watching

Written by

To those who studied in Butler 210 last night— you were being watched!

Silently observing your every move

The reason for filming is not nearly as sinister and panopticonny as it seems. A JSchooler was getting some stock footage for a documentary about a sober house built specifically for college students. She’s investigating what drives students to alcoholism, and plans to juxtapose the film of Butler monks with footage of binge drinking on St. Marks Place. Apparently, nothing says “I want to get wasted” like cracking some Rousseau and firing up the MacBook.

      I'm surprised Columbia doesn't make you submit a form to the Office of Liquid Redistribution in order to drink from the water fountains, apply for a permit with the Office of Atmospheric Resource Management in order to breathe, and get licensed by the Lee Bollinger Memorial Toilet Authority in order to take a shit. I hate how you have to get permission for everything around here.
