Don’t look now, but it looks like the Uris Tumblrgrad is no more.
The blog, undergradsinuris.tumblr.com, featured presumed undergraduates—and other non-Business School students—using Uris Hall’s Watson Library inconsiderately. It’s been causing quite a bit of controversy lately, especially since we broke the news last week that undergraduates (except for economics majors) would be banned from Watson Library during Business School finals.
While the Watson ban is still under effect today, the Tumblr is now completely blank. No more pictures of students sleeping, eating, taking up too much space, or failing to wear sufficient clothing.
Katherine Cutler, a CC and SEAS Student Affairs spokesperson, told Spectator on Friday that students had contacted Student Affairs asking the office to get the blog taken down. Cutler said she directed the students to Tumblr’s Terms of Service, which contain information about how to report a blog or ask that certain information be taken down. Student Affairs inquired with Tumblr, which responded with step-by-step instructions on how to request that certain pictures be removed.
We’re not sure if the blog is down in response to a request, but we’ve reached out to Tumblr and will update if we hear back.
There’s a lot more to tumblr than low-angle pictures of buildings, grainy shots of New York, and Doctor Who gifs—although those make up a really big majority. There are also people who use tumblr for good (or, at least for entertaining others).
What follows are some of the best tumblr blogs out there, some run by famous celebrities, others run by folks like you and me. Rest assured, all of them are high-quality. Feel free to recommend tumblrs to follow in the comments, as everyone could use some more variety on their dashboard. More »
