JJ5 Sends Chills Down Polar Bears’ Spines

Some funny business on JJ5–fliers were posted for the non-existent “Columbians For A Cold Earth” with the slogan “Promote, Protect, Preserve, Provide, Procreate, Prokaryote.” The fictitious faction of conservationist folks were planning the “Polar Bear Vigil” when, oh the irony!, it was cancelled by recent snowfall. Keep on keepin’ on JJ5!

Columbia Beats Yale!

Finally, finally, Columbia has gotten some recognition for its dogged drive towards greenishness: a good-enough-everywhere-but-Columbia grade of A- on the third annual Sustainability Report Card for American colleges.
