Columbia GS Also Shut Down on Sunday, Management Announces

Columbia University’s School of General Studies (GS) announced that the school has closed its doors for good this Sunday. This sudden shuttering has sent a wave of disbelief and confusion throughout the Columbia community.

“Management announced the closure in a brief, almost cryptic message, leaving students and faculty scrambling to make sense of this unexpected turn,” reported a GS insider. The undergraduate school, long celebrated for its unique contribution to the university’s academic tapestry, bid farewell in a manner as sudden as it was mysterious. 

In the wake of this announcement, the Columbia College Student Council (CCSC) is mobilizing to organize a farewell event in the GS lounge at 2850 Broadway, between 110th and 111th street. Scheduled for Monday evening, the event, aptly named “A Final Toast to GS,” aims to provide a platform for students, alumni, and faculty to share memories, celebrate the school’s legacy, and perhaps even shed light on the abrupt closure.

“The whole situation feels surreal,” said a senior GS student, who preferred to remain anonymous. “One minute we’re planning for finals, and the next, we’re planning for a life without GS.”

As the Columbia community grapples with this news, questions abound about the reasons behind the closure and what the future holds for the students and faculty of GS. “We’re hoping to get some answers at the event on Monday, but for now, it’s a mix of shock and speculation,” added another GS student.

This story is still developing, and the Columbia Federalist will continue to provide updates as more information becomes available.
