You probably don't want me to talk about the weather, I know. Stepping outside yesterday was a shock for all of us. Things are looking up a bit today with temperatures ranging from the high 20s to the mid 30s, and there will be no snow blasting you in the face to worry about between classes. On the other hand, the chances of snowfall will rise to 100 percent by 2 a.m. tonight. Plan your desperate Butler trips accordingly.
In Columbia news:
- A SEAS junior is piloting a convenient app that will allow for students to quickly get information about Columbia dining hall hours, nutritional facts, and menus. How exciting!
- In her biweekly column, Chayenne Mia, CC '16, discusses the tendency to attribute negative interactions to racism and sexism.
- Yesterday afternoon, a group of students delivered a letter to President Bollinger’s office that demanded the end of Columbia's investment in private prison companies.
Outside the bubble:
- In the next few weeks, smartphone watches are to be released by various companies. Will they take the world by storm?
- In the Super Bowl aftermath, Coca-Cola's ads are still sparking debate. Sigh.
- New York braces for another stormy night. If you're traveling tonight, check out the subway delays and more.
Finally, if you're interested in doing something incredibly productive tonight, the Center for Career Education and Columbia Women’s Business Society are holding a panel and networking session for organizations with opportunities in advertising, marketing and public relations. AOL and PepsiCo are among the attending companies. It takes place from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in Lerner's Broadway Room.
That's all for now!
