Popping the Columbia Bubble

The Eye

The Eye knows that housing can be pretty scary. You could be stuck with a totally crazy roommate. But don’t stress too much—we are at Columbia, after all, so even if your roommate has an annoying and unrelenting Mel’s addiction that causes him to stumble in at all hours, he could end up being the next Barack Obama.

If that’s not comforting enough to you, you have a couple more options, one being to get off campus and decompress. Why not try going to East Harlem (we know, we know, crosstown) to check out the vibrant Latino bookstore La Casa Azul? Or rent a bike from a bike share and go for a ride? Or head down to Grand Central Station for its 100th anniversary?

None of that working for you, either? Well, there is one last thing… you could immerse yourself in the forefront of campus creativity, enjoying gorgeous fiction and photo essays. Where can you possibly enjoy all that, you ask?

The Eye, of course!
