I guess balcony seating and made-to-order food lines just weren’t bougie enough for #TeamFerris, because guess which dining hall just got a brand-spankin-new Nescafe machine? Yup, that’s right. Coming to you straight from a first-year’s dorm coffee machine that they will only use twice this semester, it’s CoffeeHop: Ferris edition!!!
We sat down with a student who got really tired after exclusively eating Ferris food for a week. The story is the latest in a trend of food-related debilities.

The Coke Freestyle machines in the dining halls are confusing. Ever since their latest UI change, getting something as simple as water is harder than ever.

Recent months have brought low-income students’ straits to the attention of the greater campus and administration. Bwog Editor in Chief Taylor Grasdalen reports on the issue of food accessibility and what Columbia University students are doing to fix it.
