QuickNoSpec: Reading Week Edition

Written by

As the spring semester came to a screeching halt all too quickly yesterday, levying reading week and an ignominious batch of finals upon Columbia students quite eager to enjoy the pre-summer sunshine, Columbia Daily Spectator production also came to a halt yesterday, with an equally cheery promise to resume coverage in the fall.  While Bwog has very much enjoyed offering you a daily dose of Spec this year, sadly today there is no Spec over which Bwog editors may voraciously pore. 

Therefore, in lieu of QuickSpec this morning, Bwog invites you to have a gander at its very own Columbia news roundup trawled from a Gmail inbox chock-full of Columbia University Google Alerts.  Speaking of Google, Bwog also recommends that readers check out Google’s device called Google Reader to stay caught up with and organize all of the blogs, news, and gossip that might ever suit your fancy.

Wait, Columbia doesn’t already own the NYT?

How hard is it to get a Columbia degree?

City Journal is still silly over 1968

Graduate!  It’ll do the economy good.

Superhumans and Columbia’s supercomputer.

Save water to avoid eating your neighbor.

Did Lindsay Lohan steal your $11,000 coat?

  1. unless  

    it's some pun that i'm missing... "chock full," please!

    heh, columbia's giving judith shapiro and honorary law degree. bitches!

  3. lohan article  

    It's weird how there's a small subset of the Columbia population made up of wealthy people who model and go to clubs with famous people, and it's hard to relate to them. That Masha girl may as well go to NYU.

  4. Hmm  

    Did anyone else think the conspicuously wealthy would be more prominent when they came to Columbia, and were surprised at the absence of jetsetting to Paris on the weekend?

    Did anyone else formulate this thought, then realize it probably exists and just doesn't intersect at all with his or her experience, and then feel chastened? Anyone?

  5. well  

    its a really big school, and the uber-wealthy kids don't even need to live with the normal ones most of the time. Besides, there aren't that many ways a college student can be obviously rich when going to class, and most recognizable signs of wealth (shoes, bags, etc) are used by upper-middle class pretenders trying to look rich to the middle/lower class kids.

  6. Egotistical?  

    Is it weird that I have a Google Alert set for my own name?

  7. Only  

    If your name is Masha Markova

    There are a lot of sites out there showing book video. BookVideoTV, BookTelevision and of course CSPAN, but I like how BN.com and Reader's Entertainment TV have specific genre channels and original shows. There's just more to see and I can be specific in what genre I'm interested in. Anyone else watch online tv?
