In a possible attempt to prevent the inevitable devolving morass of first year housing selection today, Columbia Housing along with CCSC, ESC, and GS announced in an email that all students will be granted free access to the New York Times Online. The unlimited access, available if you sign up an account here, to students of CC, SEAS, and GS appears to have had little effect on anxious first years.
“Sure, all I have to do is re-register each year and I’ll have free and unlimited access to a fantastic source of information in the modern age, but what is that really if I just get shafted today?” One first year said. Another first year, leaning back and looking considerably more content than their peers, said “Sure, I’m living in a Harmony double down on 110th, but with access to all New York Times apps—anywhere and anytime—I might not even want to walk up to campus.”
Eligible students, regardless of whether they sign up for the remaining academic year, will receive an email in August with registration information for the 2016-2017 academic year.
