Namely, that it has flooded the machine room. So that’s the bad news: due to a flood in the basement machine room, all the building’s bathrooms are closed until further notice. In an email to a whole bunch of humanities departments, Lisa Seales, Columbia College’s Director of HR, also mentioned that the flood has also […]
