Broke? Hungry? Luckily, you’ve got quite a number of options to chose from tonight and we’re here to help you navigate the smorgasbord of free food at your fingertips.
At NYClash, teams from Columbia, Fordham, NYU, and Rutgers square off on an eternal question that has perplexed many a puzzled pre-frosh: Liberal Arts or Engineering? For everyone else, there will be free snacks and refreshments from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at the Roone Arledge Auditorium in Lerner, provided by event hosts Columbia Debate.
If your hunger (or intellectual curiosity) can’t be satiated by a mere snack, the free food and profound moral questions continue at the Undergraduate Philosophy forum. Pick up free pizza and soda at 8 pm in Philosophy 716 and tackle topics revolving around ethics, Western society, and their place in the American liberal arts education.
Finally, if that’s sounding a bit too intellectual for you (or if you still have room for more), get a different, but still completley free, taste of Columbia at the Bollywood Antakshiri Night. Ahimsa and the Organization of Pakistani Students will be providing a wide variety of free foods on the menu tonight, including dosas, samosas, spinach and cheese naan, and mango lassi. The event will be held in Lerner’s Satow Room on the fifth floor, starting at 8:30 pm.
Update: Even more free food! Election-Ready will be having free Havana Central empanadas (in addition to other undisclosed snacks) in the Lerner Broadway Room from 7 to 9 pm. The event is sponsored by Latino Heritage Month 2011, Caribbean Students Association, Barnard Organization of Soul Sisters, and the Columbia Political Union, to ensure that we won’t be making uninformed decisions in 2012 on an empty stomach.
