On Day 3 of Columbia’s housing lottery, rising seniors continued to make (mostly) expected housing decisions.

It maybe not have been the best of times nor the worst of times, but it certainly was… a time. Famously, Columbia seniors have been making some interesting choices in the extended hours of this year’s lottery, and the fun continued today as a variety of singles, suites, and (inexplicably) corridor-style doubles were picked by rising seniors.

In other news, if you’ve been looking out for Columbia’s official list of lottery numbers and group sizes for this year’s lottery, it was finally released this morning!

Looking Ahead

As seniors continue to make their selections, suites are becoming increasingly scarce. However, both EC and Woodbridge are still seeing quite a bit of availability. In general, although a lot of things are gone after the first 3 days of Columbia’s whirlwind, not-like-other-girls housing lottery this year, there are still plenty of great options left going into tomorrow!
