    This is the most school spirit this school has ever seen.

  3. 3:16  

    was the best part of the whole series. I'm terrified.

  4. Anonymous  

    i'm confused. is this the last hardcore episode?

  5. So much love  

    Absolutely the best of the series! Some of the others had no focus and were too full of gimmicks, but this video makes me genuinely happy I'm at Columbia!

  6. Let's be honest...

    This is the new school song.

  7. Underwhelming  

    But still damn, that was a hell of a lot of school pride, and it made me smile. Love you guys.

    For a moment I thought I loved Columbia; then I realized, yes, I actually do. Forget the cynics, just get on campus, and dance! Good job, Pat. =]

  30. Bombed my CC final  

    but this made me feel so much better! Thank you to all involved!

  31. I watch this  

    And I realize there are people around me who wouldn't get it - who don't know who EKG is, what 'Ke$ho' means, what Amy meant to us, who the Spicy Special people are, or what shirts those CCO people were wearing...


    ...and I become SO grateful for all the amazing people I know here.

    Its 5AM, I'm still working on this paper, but watching this video made me smile in a stupendous way and my spirit lift a few inches off the ground. Amazing work. THANK YOU Pat Blute and everyone involved for making this week all the more tolerable. From Kasia's lovely singing to Aki's split screen charm to Dean Shollenberger's impeccable delivery, this was just excellent.

    I realize this was posted a couple days ago, but I didn’t think it worthwhile to watch it until I got to this point trying to completely reorganize a 10-page paper when I should be studying for the two back-to-back information-heavy exams I have tomorrow, and I have to say it seriously made me feel a lot better and put a little Columbia pride into this direst of finals weeks. Thanks guys!

      Exactly how I feel. I'm writing a 12-er right now and I have two finals tomorrow I haven't studied for (oops). But this made me smile and made me happy to be at Columbia. We need more school spirit like this!

  47. Amirah Sequeira is a goddess!  

    Lyrics + 3:10-3:11 = 'nough said.

    I have two finals today and I woke up with this song stuck in my head. However, instead of making me want to rip my own ears off in a fit of rage, it just keeps making me happy and optimistic about my finals. So thanks.

    This was an awesome video. References were right on.

    But there were definitely some issues with the vocals... I've heard Uptown Vocal before and they sound good, so this is no insult to them. But maybe it would've helped to do another take or something... especially on the choruses with the male vocalists.

  50. Dude...  

    I'd see KeSho over Seacrest any day.
