We hope you enjoy this op-ed from a HC Columbia guest writer. Months of mixed signals and somehow they all point in the same direction: the friend zone.  A hell-like purgatory full of reading into texts and body language, frustration, and comparing yourself to Duckie in Pretty in Pink.  To expose your feelings would “ruin everything”, and to keep them in is torture.  And since this is Columbia, there is no prom or ball where it all comes out.  READ MORE

Oh Bacchanal. The one glimmering day of happiness before Columbia grinds us down again. Last year was my first year atBacchanal and based on my experiences I hope to provide some advice so everyone has a jolly good time. While the day is focused on having fun, things can get pretty crazy. I didn't understand how cray cray Columbia kids could get until I was in the middle of the crowd getting trampled into the ground and watching the opening of sky close in as the crowd swallowed me… Thankfully I got out alive with only some scraped knees but I was definitely not prepared for that level of insanity. So here is my checklist of Bacchanal essentials to ensure that everyone has the best time possible. READ MORE...
