Prying Open the Doors of Watson

Keenan Albee updates on the ongoing battle between those at the business school and those who want to go to business school.
And so the battle over the Business School Library rages onward. CCSC and ESC have put forth a joint resolution affirming their support for a pilot program aimed at increasing student access to Watson during exam season. Last year, the Business School began to bar undergrads from use of the library during midterms and finals, purportedly over a lack of study space for business students. While this is all well and good, ESC and CCSC have found that Watson is being severely underutilized. Pics below (Look at all of those gloriously empty desks.).
CCSC has approved the proposed amendment, which also underscores a commitment to keeping Watson open to all Columbia students, at all times. ESC will vote on the amendment at their weekly meeting this Monday. The proposed pilot program will open the library from 5pm until closing during exam times, as opposed to zilch access currently.
