Let me get one thing out of the way: I like Butler. And I don't mean "It's the only reason I haven't flunked out of college, so I suppose that would mean I like it" like it. I actually like Butler—its high-ceilinged, dim-lit, academic sort of majesty, the quiet, the community of hundreds of...

For this week's Quick and Dirty, we asked our bloggers to reflect briefly on the semester.

There are many great things about Columbia, but practical and easy-to-navigate student services aren't always a shining example of one of them. That's why it took me almost two weeks to muster up the fortitude to take my broken Columbia ID to Kent. Kent is home to the ID Center, a place which,...

We all have those friends. Those friends who woke up yesterday morning and said, "Golly! Could this curious white substance perchance be snow? I'm from Texas/India/insert humid Republican state here and I've never seen snow before/saw snow once ten years ago/thought snow was a liberal media hoax!"...

For this week's Quick and Dirty, opinion bloggers reveal their dress-up plans for Halloween. Naomi: Candy corn—yellow pants, orange shirt, white hat.

Words are not always powerful. Nothing makes words feel more weak than a reminder of what they can't describe. I think many people felt that way after hearing about Tian Bu's death this week. We try to find words that communicate how sorry we are, whether or not we knew her, but all of them are...

Yesterday marked a milestone that absolutely no one has been looking forward to—all the first-years have finally completed their required AlcoholEdu course. Well, let's not be optimistic. Probably about 85 percent remembered the second part of the three-month-long program was due on Friday, and the...
