Spectrum is the blog of Spectator, updated around the clock with the latest bits of campus news, witty commentary, and everything else a Columbia student needs to know. Spectrum is the home for special series like The Shaft, our annual guide to navigating the insanity that is the Columbia housing lottery, and the Freshman 15, our guide to preparing for your first semester on campus. The blog is also where we showcase the best of our multimedia content—like our sports podcast, audio slideshows, and HD videos accompanying sports, news, and arts stories.
