    @but are classes happening tomorrow? i am sure columbia will be its usual self and open tomorrow but seeing as many professors probably won’t be able to get to campus (flooded subways, flooded streets), are we assuming it will be a class-by-class basis or will the university shut down (NYU is shut down for tomorrow)?

      @CC'14 I think Columbia might be reluctant to cancel classes again tomorrow because of our long weekend coming up.

      @Anonymous According to the GSSC facebook group, Dean Awn told a student we’ll have class Wednesday.

    @darts or no darts? Wait — is 1020 open or is it closed?

    @Anonymous … is Columbia open tomorrow?

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous @+: Not today, unless you’re kosher. Hewitt is on an emergency schedule, so even Barnard students can only go during limited hours, and it’s based on housing.

    @Anonymous strokos and artopolis are also closed.

      @Anonymous Also – do you have any idea if buildings on campus (besides Butler and the dorms) are open?
