Field Notes: Unmet Expectations Edition

This weekend was in the wake of midterm season – and what did we do to work off some steam?

For The Aspiring Raskolnikov: Nussbaum “Lounge Rooms”

After receiving not one but two ominous mysterious tips about so-called “lounge rooms” in Nussbaum, “This summer they made all the Nussbaum floor lounges into rooms.

We thought only McBain was vulnerable. We were wrong. In the spirit of finals, the ceiling of Carman 714’s bathroom decided to just give up.

Wallach Residents Are All Fired Up

On September 28th we received a tip from a heated Wallach resident who had been on the 9th floor of Wallach when a fire alarm didn’t sound. Now, we know that sounds like great news. Fire alarms go off on this campus so often that a solid few days without an alarm is kind of like […]

The Sky is Falling in McBain

Oh wait, no. Sheetrock is falling. Late this past Friday night, the ceiling of a McBain double inexplicably fell while one of the room’s occupants watched in terror. The sheetrock fell onto one of the roommate’s desk, bed and shattered her phone. Luckily, both of the sophomores are alright, though probably traumatized by McBain doing what […]

Community Building and the Curious CUE Quandary

CUE, that community service pre-orientation program, is facing some unwanted changes. The school cut the group from 84 students last year to 54. Historically Barnard subsidizes dining, but this year they’re providing a “small, kind donation” and office supplies. The biggest change, though, is housing. Typically, CUE lives together in McBain, taking up two to […]
