It’s day six of NSOP, which means the wildest week of freshman year (for some of you) is winding down to a close. You’ve made new friends, have already switched majors (?), and are now almost ready to make the transition from prefrosh to official Columbia freshman. Congrats! Shockingly enough, you’ll actually be in classes […]

If you haven’t yet had a totally normal, non-awkward social interaction with anything on this campus, this byline can be your first one: what’s up! Welcome to Columbia, 2021! As move-in continues and you begin to settle in, you may realize that making friends can be an annoying process. Asking people their name & origin will […]
NSOP is the perfect time to get settled in your new neighborhood, which includes finding your favorite dealer. Deciding who to pick up from can be easy: Birth control? Duane Reade. Grapes? Westside Market. But for other drugs, like caffeine, the choice can be much more complex. During your time at Columbia, you will develop […]
Today is the fifth-going-on-fiftieth day of NSOP, and while your mandatory events and forced friendships seem to be killing you softly, don’t give up hope! Use this time to familiarize yourself with your campus, your peers, and your uni (seriously, memorize that ASAP). Other don’ts for the fifth day of NSOP: hook up with a floor-mate, visit home, use all […]
Sure, NSOP is supposed to be a fun time for all first-years, but admit it – you didn’t really do it right. Whether you were too clean or too sloppy, you probably missed out on some stuff you really hoped for. Did you screw up, or did you achieve the elusive Perfect NSOP?
“Come, [NSOP bracelet], you too must die. Why moan about it so? / Even Patroclus died, a far, far better man than you.” – Homer, The Iliad If we had done our Iliad reading when we were actually supposed to, maybe we could have found comfort in the wise words of Homer. Instead, we found this […]

Drumroll, please.

Tonight, many of you will discover another difference between Columbia and all the rural/”college town” schools your friends are currently at: while they will make it through all four years being entertained by frat parties and “college bars,” if you want to experience all the nightlife New York has to offer, you will need to […]
