It’s about time that one of Columbia’s ugliest buildings had some work done on its exterior. According to a cedilla-containing email sent to Carman residents:

Please be advised that, beginning tomorrow, Wednesday, February 12th [sic], an overhead structure will be put up over the entrance to Carman Hall. This is in preparation for work that will be done on the façade of the building. At no time will the building entrance be closed. We apologize for any disturbance this construction may cause. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.


Maybe the Victorian reformatory will finally look like it belongs on this campus. Carman likes to party, but the gangly red-head brick has always been self-conscious about his looks.
