It’s official—the sweet ’16ers are here! The international/West-Coast ones, at least… In honor of their arrival, campus is wearing its finest. John Jay got new, temporarily stain-free carpets… until some freshperson vomits on it during NSOP oh wait that’s Carman spills some Massaman sauce from their Wondee delivery whilst making a heated point in a […]
While most Columbians vegetate in flyover states or work long hours in the beige halls of finance, Columbia prepares herself for the Fall 2012 and the arrival of the class of 2016. (We see you!) Like the MTA’s, Columbia’s renovations are a patchwork of quick-fixes intended to squeeze a little more life out of really […]
For Lenny Pridatko, Columbia’s campus is a photographer’s dream. Students lying on picturesque lawns, surrounded by architecture, welcome the lensman to capture both the aesthetically pleasing and the historically significant.

The weather cooperated and spirits were high for today’s improvisational event. Never before have so many poorly dressed kids stumbled around campus blithely unaware of the broader world around them while completely cocooned in the vibrant audio world produced by their ubiquitous white Apple headphones. And that’s an accomplishment considering the quick degradation of all standards during finals season. Nevertheless, […]
The triumphant shouts of eager RA’s echoed around the quad. The sun shined blissfully and the skies were clear. Today was move-in day made in heaven. Irene left hundreds of cancelled flights, blocked roads, and disrupted trips in her wake, so only some freshpeople made it to move-in. The NSOP committee expects the stragglers arrive […]
Gallant procrastinators, clashing in epic, fluffy battle, stormed across the Butler median last night. The annual Sundial v. Butler bash had a more dubious commencement than usual because of the unclear Facebook event start time. A handful of freshmen began fighting around 11:30, but then quickly left––their school spirit forever tarnished… Thus, one can conclude, […]
