Gates at 117th Now Open Until 10 on Weekdays

Pictured: Bwog’s nightly prayer to Facilities

Facilities can be a cruel God, but today they have deigned to answer our prayers. Bwog is ecstatic to report that the Earl Hall Gate (117th Street and Broadway) and the Chapel Gate (117th Street and Amsterdam Avenue) will remain open until 10:00 p.m. on weekdays.

No longer will students who live above 116th have to walk all the way to the main gates after 6:00 to get on campus! No longer will you be embarrassed when you sprint to Earl Hall Gate, only to be met with its unforgiving lockedness! You can skeedaddle straight to Barnard after your classes for four extra hours! Hallelujah! Praise be to Facilities!

      @Anonymous It’s cuz the university is too bust trying to get people to sign a sheet of paper before taking tests.

        @Anonymous the thing is, i feel that the honor code only works for people who wouldnt normally cheat…not serial cheaters who dont care anyways. So if we want to get one to say we have one or whatever,…by all means…but i honestly don’t think it will solve the cheating problem unfortunately

          @Anonymous There’s a grey zone between serial cheating and feeling overwhrlmed and therefore doing so and I’ve been there.

          @Anonymous Yeah, Policy team went to work after it got up votes on the site. It was super useful to have the data to back it up.
