Columbia is UNSAFE. Yet another robbery, but this time the student dies. These types of crimes are common place. Thefts, rapes, and harassment are completely ignored when reported to Campus Security. I don't feel safe here, and I leaving for good at the end of the term. |
Dear GS Students,
It is with great sadness that I share with you the news of the tragic
death of a Columbia student enrolled in the Graduate School of Arts &
Sciences. On Friday evening, a graduate student from GSAS was struck
by an automobile at W. 122nd Street and Broadway while apparently
fleeing an attempted robbery. The student passed away as a result of
the injuries sustained when he was struck by the vehicle.
A police investigation is underway and is being supported by
Columbia's Office of Public Safety. At this time, there are no
suspects in custody for the attempted robbery. The Office of Public
Safety has posted a security alert relevant to the alleged robbery,
which is attached to this email.
We grieve the loss of this member of our community and send our
condolences to his family, friends and colleagues. Such tragic
incidents trigger all kinds of concerns and emotions and thus I want
to remind you that your GS advisor as well as staff at Counseling and
Psychological Services are at the ready to listen and talk with you.
Please note that Counseling & Psychological Services will have staff
working special hours in Lerner Hall today from 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Students seeking support are encouraged to drop by during that time,
or to call 212-854-2878 at any time.

| They just cut down the two largest and most beautiful trees on the campus. This act eptiomizes how the administration feels about anything that is growning, alive, and life sustaining. In short, the school doesn't give a damn about those trees, nor do they give a damn about students. It's a political, money making, sham of a business, nothing more. Therefore, if you want to attend an overpriced, over rated, unsafe, and aesthetically ugly school with elitist snobs, unethical administrators, and a greedy bursars office, then congratulations, you have found your school. I'm sorry I even thought about applying to this dump. |
