It's late. You're up. We're nearing the final stretch, but that doesn't mean we can't be whimsical, like when we wondered if Morton Williams' new plastic bags meant cheaper grapes, or when we had an imaginary conversation with the Commencement bleachers.  The Snapchat Revolution: Everyone's...

Hooray, Tuesday morning. Now's the time to make your runs to Ferris! As of today, most of us on campus will have experienced all of our classes twice. Still shopping, you say? Now you have to be careful not to take anyone's seat when you first walk in. It's serious business: I enter Lit Hum at 8:...

Good morning Columbia! Even though it feels like the spring semester started ages ago, today is in fact the first Monday, so soak that in. Here's a song to help you up, à la last week's "SNL" musical guests: Today it'll be a balmy 38 degrees, but before you reach for that beach gear, we should...

Good morning, and a happy first day of classes to you. Go shop a class that's completely unrelated to your major.

It's the primary for the mayoral campaign and I, as an educated political science major and proud New Yorker, could not have less of a clue who I am voting for. Moreover, I know nothing about the array of Democratic candidates I have to choose from. Well, I know about Anthony Weiner, and that is...

As Columbia students we are lucky enough to have the opportunity to study abroad. It is during this time of year that studying abroad is a common topic of conversation. The decision to go abroad has already been made for those going in the fall, but it is still in the works for those debating...

Walking down Broadway last week in the midst of my midterms, I did something I don’t normally do: I looked up. Maybe the stress made me feel like acting a little crazy. Maybe I needed to stretch my neck. Maybe I suddenly became curious about what the tops of the buildings in Morningside looked...

It’s late. You’re up. It’s officially spring break. Unless you have Friday classes. Sucks to suck. Everyone else is leaving the city to go on epic adventures in Miami or Milan or Vermont. While you’re stuck with the rando you asked to share a taxi with to JFK or you’re on the nine-hour flight to...
