Orgo Night at Columbia University
In another sweeping effort to release stress, the Columbia's marching band storms the main reading room of Butler Library at 11:59pm on the eve of the semester's Organic Chemistry final, notoriously the most challenging course at the Ivy League's school. A live rendition of the alma mater bookends an hour-long scripted series of jokes (often offensive, per the student protest groups in the video) and musical snippets designed to lighten their fellow students' distressed souls. Then said students return to studying, eventually graduate, and face a cold, hard world where they're forced to deal with stress alone, within, silently.
