A Ruggles resident, also responsible for last year’s inflatable tube man meets party streamer french fries, created another art installation. It kind of reminds us of an an iridescent worm or a rogue shower curtain. Maybe a wisp of pensieve escaping as our beloved dorm dies, while its windows trap its noble spirit to linger […]
Does this hyperambitious SAT beasting, global citizen remind you of… you? At the very least, it probably sounds like one of your suitemates and the guy you’re sitting next to in class right now, too. You are all participating in aggressive intellectual capital hoarding, FYI. (NYT) Now that doesn’t mean we don’t understand it was a […]

We’ve had some technical glitches with our Favorite Comments system, but through the magic of “CS majors” they’ve been fixed. Finals are coming up soon, […]

Drug busts don’t just happen at our school! These guys stepped it up a notch, and now they’re down $8 million and 8,000 marijuana plants. (NY Post) And it looks like we’re not the only ones with new admissions stats—kindergarten hopefuls continue to wait for a spot at their elementary schools, but the lists just keep […]
This armored vehicle is currently parked outside Harmony on 110th St. Several veterans and this tank-like vehicle are here for ‘Support Our Troops Day,’ at Congregation Ramath Orah, an orthodox synagogue next door to the dorm.

Columbia’s own Brian Greene has just released his 4th book of popular science, titled The Hidden Reality. In it, Greene provides the latest theory surrounding the multiverse.

Woosh! Before finally bidding farewell the most awkwardly named decade ever, please allow a moment to reflect on the madness that was these past few months.
