It’s the beginning of a brand new semester. The days are long; you’ve got goals as lofty as Riverside Church; your A/C is your only true BFF.
Best of all, though, it’s still early enough in September that you haven’t become too snug/busy to leave Morningside Heights.

Alexander Hamilton: Striver, Statesman, Scoundrel is today and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Don’t throw away your shot to learn more about this CU alum. Spectrum recommends playing the Hamilton soundtrack and pretending to be Lin-Manuel.
Do yourself a favor and get outside of the bubble this weekend. You’ll be spending way too much time in MoHi very soon, after all… Winter is coming.
