Overheard: What Is John Jay

Overhead in Lerner from one student affairs admin to another: “Do students live in John Jay?”


This is what we speculate PrezBo does in the uninhabited John Jay Hall.

Good question! No, John Jay’s only purpose is JJ’s Place. Just ask the athletes who eat there 4 times a day…The other 15 stories are just used as storage space and other random rooms for PrezBo to do, well, whatever PrezBo does. The freshmen who don’t live in Carman, Furnald, or the LLC have to find really nice park benches every night. In the winter Columbia even gives them fleece blankets!

      @Alum This could have been a new employee who is still learning the basics. Or maybe Bwog’s mistaken, and the person was just a visitor.
