Bacchanal is mere days away. While some may be preoccupied with what they’ll be drinking or where they might find a toilet on Saturday, Anna Hotter is just worried about keeping up with the crazy kids and their music.

As you’re rushing from Hamilton to Pupin and back again today, keep an ear out not just for midterms and finals information, but for what those old people in front of the lecture hall are actually saying in between the course requirements.

You may have noticed this dope ass coffee cup at Blue Java this past week. Columbia is no stranger to ’90s throwbacks, or puns. This cup seamlessly integrates both. According to Rosie Fernandez over at Dining, “This is a vintage blue java cup that we brought back for finals.” Can we keep ’em Pa, please? Cup […]
