Your RAs are sick and tired of everyone being so darn unfriendly around here! Their solution: cold hard cash.
"The Social Experiment," which cryptic fliers have been advertising for the past few weeks, is a new program sponsored by Columbia's Residential Programs. It will start next Monday the 15th and end on Friday the 19th. It's a contest kind of thing! Here's how it works:
- Certain people will be chosen to be "password holders." Any student could be one.
- Each day next week, "The Social Experiment" will put out a new "prompt" on its website (which doesn't seem to be working yet UPDATE: It works ok now!). When you say the "prompt" to a "password holder," you get a password! "Gotta catch 'em all," etc.
- Then you go to the website and type in the passwords you've collected. There will be several correct passwords per day.
- The 10 people who have collected the most passwords will win things. The winner gets $500!
So, yep. It's come to this.
