Columbia University
COST: 6 energy
DISCARD
Buy this card for 1 energy less if you are in MANHATTAN.
+4 victory points, and take the next KEEP card revealed, for free.

What if after buying this card, the next revealed card is a DISCARD card? Does the player still take the next KEEP card that becomes revealed later on in the game?

You wait for a KEEP card to be revealed, then you get to take it. If a DISCARD card is revealed, then ignore it and patiently wait for the correct card to appear.

There's more ways of getting energy in KoNY.

We were wondering when to take the Keep card too, if a Discard is drawn first. With respect, Alistair, are you sure you're correct? We were going to play it the same way you stated, but this led to the question of when a new Keep card is revealed, when does the holder of the Columbia University card get to take this Keep card? Immediately it appears, or on their next turn? To keep things simple, we decided that a new card should be placed until a Keep card appeared. If any Discard cards were revealed prior to that, there were removed.

I'm not saying we're right, just a different interpretation.

So you take this DISCARD-card and flip up a new card in its place. If it is not a KEEP-card you let this DISCARD-card stay in front of you until a KEEP-card is flipped either by someone buying another card or clearing the row with 2 energy?

What kind of frikkin DISCARD-card is that?

If that's how it should be used then wouldn't it be better written as
Columbia University
COST: 6 energy
KEEP
Buy this card for 1 energy less if you are in MANHATTAN.
Gain +4 victory points as soon as you get this card.
The next time a KEEP card is revealed, discard Columbia University and take the newly revealed card instead.

?

Would love to see some official clarification on this card (and a few others). Too bad no official people seem to answer questions here.

I think it should have been a keep card, but the way it's worded, I can't see any other way it could work.

We just continue revealing cards until a keep one comes out. Then remove the extra discard cards. Its a fun card!

I thought the reasoning for it to be a Discard instead of a Keep card was that you have to take the next Keep card that shows up, instead of holding on and waiting until way later in the game to redeem it.

And in our group, if the next card is a Discard, we wait until the next Keep card shows up.

There is nothing in the card text stating that you must keep it in front of you.
You can optionally keep it in front of you purely as a reminder, but nothing requires you to do so.

Keep cards are just under 3/4's of the deck, it shouldn't (usually) take that long for one to show up.
46 Keep cards out of 64 > ~72% Keep cards. A couple purchases, or one Sweep is all it should take most of the time.

All relevant text is in the initial post (except the +VP are actually only +2, not +4).

See above, card is only worth +2 VP. Also keep in mind that there are some "drawback" (cursed?) Keep cards that you don't necessarily want.
