V114: Morningside Hates (2008)


Synopsis

Whether it’s school, their peers, or of course, Barnard, there’s nothing Columbia students love more than finding something to hate. So when optimistic Cornell transfer David meets idealistic Barnard eco-rep Lizzy, the penchant for positive thinking that sets them apart from the rest of campus draws them closer to each other. 

After a “bias incident” at Columbia’s all-female counterpart, however, head of Public Safety James McShane attempts to consolidate control over Barnard’s campus. When President Judith Shapiro realizes that this is more about hate and less about crime, she bites back, setting off a bitter conflict that pits the two schools against each other. 

As Barnard stands her ground and Columbia refuses to give in, David and Lizzy struggle to stay together, finding it harder than they expected to keep cool in the hate-wave.

“Friend-less and a liar? How Columbia.”
“But the Nexus is the future of Barnard!”
