We heard that there was a war over milk on campus, and rather than coming out as explicitly for or against milk-shaming, we here at Spectrum decided to take a hint from Aristotle and follow the middle way. There’s no denying it: While milk is (generally) a healthy and delicious beverage, the dairy industry that produces it is not so easy to stomach. Making one 200-milliliter (about a 6.7-ounce glass) of dairy milk requires over 100 liters of water and 1.5 square meters of land—and produces over 0.5 kilograms of carbon emissions. While you should, by all means, enjoy your beverage of choice in the dining halls, we here at Spectrum have decided to review all of the alternative milk options in Ferris and John Jay—just in case you’re lactose intolerant, vegan, or are considering reducing your dairy intake for environmental or ethical reasons....

Of all my indulgences, weaknesses, and downright misuses of money, I prefer my penchant for coffee: a habit I only developed at Columbia. A cup of coffee is mundane.

But now that I have graduated, I cannot help but realize how essential coffee was to my social life and, more importantly, to my mental health....

This school year saw a handful of new restaurants and eateries opening in the Morningside Heights neighborhood that were instant hits among students.
On this campus stress culture runs so deep that many of us may immediately associate coffee with midterms and lonely late nights working, but I believe that coffee can be as much of a treatment for our stress-induced habits as it is an enabler of them. It is well known that stress culture has detrimental implications for the overall well-being of the student population, and that Columbia seems to be taking steps to improve this on the large scale. But since this large-scale fix remains distant, surely we must also dedicate effort to improving things on an individual level. Coffee, under the right circumstances, is one way to address the isolating implications of stress culture on a more personal level....
