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.

Everyone talks about that Juilliard-Columbia Exchange student who died in his 13th hour of practicing on Halloween night many moons ago.

CCSC cooked it up. Brian Wagner ate it down. The Council talked about granting Barnard swipe access to Columbia dorms. In the past, insurance and other legal matters have barred student government from changing the current system. The Council resolved to investigate these barriers and to see if any additional ones existed. They also plan to discuss […]
Once again, many a wooden chair has gone missing from the Schapiro lounges, and Housing is prepared to take action. Darleny Cepin, Associate Director of the Office of Residential Programs, warned residents that all of the furniture must be returned by 9am this Friday, or else a team of Res, Housing, and Facilities staff will open […]
