Behind The Facade Of McBain

In early June, the New York Times (NYT) published an article about McBain Hall’s safety violations. After citing historical failures in its building maintenance, the piece depicted Columbia as ignoring a “façade so decrepit that city inspectors have issued several violations for the risk it posed to the public.” While this incident might initially seem […]

What The Fuck Is Going On With The Fire Alarms?

Students have been hit with a barrage of fire alarms in the past 48 hours: 4 times in EC. 3 times in McBain. Once in Carman. And the JJ’s sprinkler system is malfunctioning. The latest false alarm happened minutes ago in EC. Is the stress of midterms causing people to toke up at 3:30am on a […]

Waking Up With Bwog: Be My BFF Edition

Is it still a good morning if you’re up past McDonald’s breakfast hours? Yeah they serve all day now, but the rigid 10:30 standard they set is timeless (it’s 11am and you’re just now waking up? We’ve been eating fries for 30 min. Where have you been?). Keeping up with NSOP can be exhausting, whether you were partying […]

Housing Reviews 2017: McBain Hall

Sometimes called Carman 2.0 and sometimes called McNasty, McBain’s short lived geotag on snapchat displaying mice pretty much sums up this fun, whimsical dorm. Its recent renovation may give a nice exterior, but its facilities are still old and ramshackle Location: W 113th St at the corner of 113th and Broadway, New York, NY 10025 Nearby dorms: Watts, Broadway, […]

Not-So-Renovated Bathrooms

Looking forward to escaping the hell of Carman bathrooms by living in a newly-renovated dorm next year? Well, you may not be so lucky. Apparently, some of these nicer bathrooms have already been destroyed due to debauchery/water leaks(?). Staffers sent in evidence of their dorms’ trashy toilets that they were told would be renovated. Drunken […]

Bye Bye, McBocho

This summer, floors 1, 7, and 8 of McBain—the notoriously disgusting but charming sophomore dorm—were completely renovated. A former penthouse resident, Anna Hotter, visited her old home and has a lot of feelings about it. Do you remember that 2007 rom-com with Dane Cook and Jessica Alba, where every woman who sleeps with the Dane Cook character […]

Very McBain 8, Much Captain Underpants

Please tell us you remember George and Harold from the childhood classic Captain Underpants, because it looks like they somehow made their way to sophomore year of college. Personally, we might have preferred “Gila Monsters Meet You at the Airport” or “LOL Ass Wipe Stop It.”

In Defense Of: McBain

Tomorrow morning is the beginning of sophomore suite selection. Rising sophomores, your housing options will pretty much be Schapiro, Wien, Nussbaum, Broadway, or the most notorious of sophomore dorms, sometimes known as Carman 2.0, occasionally called McBizzzzz, often referred to as a pit/dump/hellhole: McBain. The distant noises of sophomore selection are all singing the same […]

An Overheard Before and After

The McBain residence hall is known for a number of astonishing qualities: beautiful views of Manhattan a disgusting ventilation shaft, a grandiose history (Meghan McCain – for real!?), and a sophisticated cultured exciting bat shit crazy party scene. If by bat shit crazy you mean tinged with the faint scent of desperation. There’s no doubt […]
