The Shaft

One down, two to go: Senior Day recap

Check out our Barnard room selection predictions post!

Senior day has ended, and it was truly predictable. CG has been almost entirely chosen. Sulz Tower is gone save for two halves of doubles. The last Sulz Tower single was chosen by #285. The last group to pick into the top floors of 620 was #101. The last group to choose a five-person suite in 620 was #39, and the rest of the five-person groups picked 616Ds. After the predictable options ran out, several seniors began grasping at straws. Some picked into Plimpton singles, while others resorted to Hewitt or Elliot. Several studio singles in 110th were chosen but many remain. A few groups picked into great six-person apartments in 600 and 616, but overall the seniors didn’t make a large dent in either building.

Perhaps the biggest shocker of the day was that #1 was not present. The holder of lottery number 1 has elected to pull in underclassmen, making #2 the new #1. The first group to pick excitedly chose Sulz Tower. The rest of the groups to pick early shared in the excitement. Group #6, who chose the coveted 10A suite in 620, said: “We’re really excited for a really big common space, huge rooms, a hallway, and hopefully there’s no roaches.”

Some waiting outside Brooks Lounge from the very beginning weren’t quite as excited. A couple groups with early selection times were trying to find the extra number they needed to fill the suite they wanted. Despite this anxiety, the mood was pretty happy during the early picks of room selection.

Of course, the excitement did not last forever. When it came down to the wire, anxiety levels peaked and seniors could only hope that their dream homes stuck around long enough for their appointment time to come around. After her group snatched up 5D, one of the last remaining five-person suites, Zoe Heisler, BC '15, said, “I’m ready to cry.”

And then it got less happy. As a group of three left the selection room, one of them could only say “sad face.” When asked for further information, her friend volunteered: “I put the team on my back. We’re in Sulz Tower. I’m happy. She’s less happy. I’m really hungry. I’m gonna go lunch it up.” I can only assume that they weren’t able to pick three singles next to each other.

But it wasn’t over quite yet. One girl around lottery number 300 left the selection room practically in tears. Another senior who picked into four Plimpton singles with her friends said: “I hate Barnard housing. I’m literally gonna kill someone and am probably moving off campus.”

The day ended with most seniors happy and smiling. Junior and sophomore day are not likely to end quite as positively. Stay tuned for junior day preview at the beginning of next week!

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
