Waking Up With Bwog: Wind Down Wednesday

it won't be tho

This could (kinda) be you at the Health Expo!

Right after your RC@C floor meeting last night, you trolled your dorm for places to prove that you don’t need to alternate cups of beer and water. It was another night of adventure for our quickly maturing freshman class, but your RA probably encouraged you to wake up early to go to yet another group fitness activity. NSOP won’t stop just because you’re still on a summer internal clock. So get out there and hold fast to the spirit of youth! Make friends, make enemies, and tell us all about it at as it happens.

Today’s Highlights: 

  • Health Expo, Lerner Hall Ramps, 10:30 am-12:30 pm. Find out about all of the services Columbia Health offers, from Counseling and Psychological Services to Stressbusters, Columbia’s renegade team of back rubbers. The free prizes will probably be stress balls and condoms, and we think all freshman can use at least one of those.
  • Community Forum, Levien Gymnasium (Dodge Fitness Center), 8:00-10:00 pm. Columbia isn’t known for it’s school spirit, but that won’t stop them from trying! Fill the stands of the basketball and volleyball gym as the four undergraduate schools compete to be the loudest/least asleep. According to the Guidebook, there’s a surprise celebration afterwards! (It’s not a surprise. It’s glowsticks.)
  • Trivia Night, John Jay Lounge, 10:00 pm-12:30 am. Flex your trivia muscles – you’ll need them. No, this isn’t a studying recommendation. 1020, one of MoHi’s bars, is known for its Tuesday night trivia. Your teammates tonight might be your rivals next week.

One Thing To Do Before Graduating: Ride all the way out to the end of a subway line. It’s very easy to never stray from that stretch of the 7th Avenue subway where all three lines run in perfect parallel. Only the 3 and A lines end in Manhattan, so you’ll probably have to go a long ways. Check out Coney Island with your fresh new friends or go to South Ferry and ship off to the Statue of Liberty.

    @hmmm Of all of the things a Columbia student should do before graduating, going on a really slow ride to the outer boroughs never seemed to top the list. My own personal advice for the incoming people– there will always be more things you want to do before you leave.
