Orgo Night Is Canceled

In light of the fatal incident in Morningside Park last night, CUMB has announced that Orgo Night is canceled.

According to a statement posted to CUMB’s Facebook page, they will not be holding Orgo Night as scheduled tonight. This announcement comes just hours after McAC also canceled their semesterly Midnight Breakfast.

Read the CUMB’s complete statement here:

To the Columbia University Community:

We are deeply saddened by the passing of first-year Barnard student Tessa Majors and stand with the entire Columbia and Barnard community in mourning. Out of respect for this tragedy, the band will no longer be holding this semester’s Orgo Night.

We encourage students seeking support to attend Barnard’s community gathering tonight at 7 pm in the Diana Center and to reach out to any available resources.

      @Jeff The season premiere of SNL that year was September 29, more than two weeks after 9/11. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saturday_Night_Live_(season_27)

      Anyway, no idea what your point is or what cowardice has to do with cancelling the event. Honestly, do people have nothing better to do than write insults online?

        @fellow jeff “do people have nothing better to do than write insults online?” yep

        also, imagine comparing a internationally televised show that’s become a symbol of NYC in and of itself… to one campus’s pre-finals tradition – wild, huh
