Remember in third grade when neon rubber earrings from Claire’s were, like, the coolest thing, like, ever?
I don’t even think it bears repeating, but let’s just say that this weekend was weird. Like, weird. Random, drunk, and weird. Check out this weekend’s field notes.
Spur of the moment:
Alcohol is weird:

The sea of chairs is coming in handy
For once, reporters weren’t the only audience members in the room—join Bwogger Nadra Rahman in the Satow Room, where CCSC got a little heated last night.
Last night’s meeting of the Columbia College Student Council (CCSC) was “the most populated student council meeting” seen by USenator Jay Rappaport in two years—for once, the audience seats were packed. The audience was mostly motivated by the proposal that CCSC co-sponsor Israeli Apartheid Week at Columbia (described by its organizers as “a week of programming meant to educate about Palestine, its history and struggles, as well as how it intersects with other indigenous struggles around the world”). The audience, which included members of Columbia/Barnard Hillel and Aryeh, were against any CCSC involvement in the controversial event series. The other main event of the night was the brief question and answer session with Deantini and Dean Kromm, which addressed the usual themes: student wellness and space.
“Zionists are Racist” or “Complete Content Neutrality”?
Columbia University Apartheid Divest (CUAD) had asked CCSC to cosponsor Israeli Apartheid Week, which is to take place from Monday, February 27 to Friday, March 3. This cosponsorship could be nominal only or financial ($10-30) and could be for the entire week or a single event.
How did they vote?

Columbia is home to many different perspectives regarding the Israel-Palestine conflict.
Besides the demonstration that will take place on Low Plaza between 11 am to 4 pm, a few events will be happening every day this week relating to Israel and Palestine. Check them out to hear the voices of Columbia students and prominent activists on both sides of the issue.

Good morning, Columbia! Only two more weeks until Spring Break! We can do it! Just keep pushing on!
Happening in the nation: In case you didn’t notice, the Oscars were last night… And there was one hell of a Steve Harvey moment. Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty got caught in an envelope mix-up and accidentally announced La La Land as Best Picture, when the real winner was Moonlight. A day that will live in infamy.
Happening in NYC: If you’re anything like me, you spent this beautiful weekend looking to get cocktails and grub from everyone’s favorite upper west side joint, Jacob’s Pickles. But alas! A fire on Saturday in the apartment buildings above has left Jacob’s Pickles closed indefinitely for repairs. I know, I know, we’re heartbroken too.
Happening on campus: Tonight, Columbia University Women in Law and Politics is hosting New York City Councilman Corey Johnson for a discussion on minority rights under the Trump administration. They’ll be in Lerner 569 tonight from 5:30 to 7:00 pm.
Overseen/Overheard: We found a little ode to the Bwog Slackbot on Saturday night at Beta on the DJ table.
Hey man, rush Beta.
