Good morning, Columbia. If you're in a rush this morning, all you need to know is that today's weather can be best described as a shin-bruising obtained outside of Pupin. We'll be cruising through the 20s today with clear and sunny skies, but the temperature will hit a low of 11 tonight.
In Columbia news:
- Out of roughly 500 submitted pieces, author Joyce Carol Oates chooses the winners of 4x4's literary contest.
- CCSC Academic Affairs Representative Nora Habboosh, CC '14, discusses her high hopes for the council's new departmental advising initiative.
- Teacher's College has announced an allocation of $10,000 toward a one-year scholarship for master's and doctoral students following their $300 million fundraising initiative last semester.
Outside the bubble:
- Shirley Temple Black, largely considered America's first iconic child star, is remembered after recently passing at the age of 85.
- Apparently, welding is the new hot job prospect that manufacturing markets are persistently urging women to pursue.
- A recent Stress in America survey found that the levels of stress in teens are higher than those in adults.
Looking for a fruitful discussion about romance later in the evening? The Student Wellness Project, the Veritas Forum at Columbia, and Columbia Anscombe Society have organized an event entitled "Finding Love in a Hopeless Place: What do you want romance at Columbia to look like?" It will take place in Broadway in the 14th floor lounge between 8 and 9:30 p.m. Check out their Facebook event for more information. Oh, and there will be free Insomnia cookies!
Have a great day!
