What If Departments Texted You Like Public Safety? A Collective Imagining
Written by Bwog Staff
We don’t need to say that the absolute most annoying thing that this school does is all of those goddam unnecessary messages informing us that we have school tomorrow, or, as one Bwog staffer put it, texting us, “LOL yes we still have school.” In a moment of collective catharsis, we thought about what other Departments’/Columbia entities’ versions of such texts would look like:
Good morning, you have an 8:40 class on the 7th floor of Hamilton today. Please plan to climb five flights of stairs or wait 20 minutes for a tiny elevator.
Columbia Libary Notice: Butler Library is crowded tonight.
Today John Jay Dining Hall will serve Chicken With Arbitrary Sauce and Fishless Sushi. Ferris will serve Breakfast and Sandwiches
