Nothing says welcome back from spring break quite like the worst part of the Columbia experience — housing. If you haven’t checked already, your lottery number is ready for grand reveal just in time to
brighten up ruin your first Monday back on campus. Approach the Housing Portal with caution, and take sudden breakouts of hysteria all around campus as normal activity. Maybe you just woke up; maybe you’re just leaving class. Either way, your sucky situation is mutual and know that you are about to behold crucial information that will determine where you’ll be living your happiness level for the 2015-2016 academic year.
As usual, Bwog’s prepared for all the coverage you deserve during the worst season of them all, so report back for updates and what your number really means in the grand scheme of Res Life. Simple things to remind yourself as your shaky fingers enter the Housing Portal:
- Numbers go from 1-3000
- Lower is better; higher is worse
- Not every number is used (!)
- 10 means rising sophomore; 20 means rising junior; 30 means rising senior
- Groups’ shared point values are averaged based on the above
Godspeed, and may you remain friends with everyone you were going to live with.
