- Greek literature may be so first semester, but The Barnard-Columbia Ancient Drama Group is keeping the spirit strong with their production of The Libation Bearers.

- New campus group, LyricLion, is having an off campus performance Thursday at 11:30 pm at 54 Below (254 W 54th St.). The group consists of seven Columbian musicians and strives to support student composers on campus, including arranging compositions by singer-songwriters for their chamber group. Cover charge is $10 with a two drink minimum, but hey, you were going to celebrate Thursday night anyways, so why get off campus and support fellow Columbians at the same time?
