Shapiro Cum Laude

It’s not only seniors who are receiving diplomas this week, outgoing President and Varsity Show protagonist Judith Shapiro (pictured with her signature sass at right), will be receiving an honorary Columbia University Doctor of Laws degree, presented to her tomorrow by none other than PrezBo. In a press release, PrezBo commends JShap on doubling BC’s endowment, instituting the Nine Ways of Knowing, and launching construction on the Vag. 

Congrats, JShap!

    @CC'09 you’re DUMB. Deal with it. There are a lot of Barnard students smarter than CC/SEAS kids. They offer us more classes, better teams, better clubs & groups, more dining options, and generally more of a collegiate neighborhood.

      @lol do you mean BC’09?

        @lol no I mean CC’09. And I’ll bet my GPA, majors, and extracurriculars own yours.

        @Anonymous I’m in SEAS, jackass.

  • ermm says:

    @ermm I’m sorry, but Columbia’s complete lack of an advising system is nothing to be proud of.

    1. yes says:

      @yes Amen. I’m not suggesting it is.

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous Barnard’s awesome. Their degrees are conferred by our university. They’re in our classes (and us in theirs), they’re in our clubs, our sports teams, our libraries, our social groups. They’re a school of Columbia University. How is that so difficult to accept?

    1. it's quite simple. says:

      @it's quite simple. Perhaps it wouldn’t be if we also had a school exclusively for boys, with a hand-holding advisory system and a substantially higher admission rate.

    2. BC says:

      @BC Thank you. I generally don’t pay much heed to Barnard bashing on Bwog, but still, your comment was lovely to read.

  • strong beautiful says:

    @strong beautiful The BC ceremony was great, coverage asap please!
    JShap is so much like a mother to Barnard, kind of embarrassing (see “signature sass”) but pretty amazing and endearing.

  • cc grad says:

    @cc grad the barnard class day ceremony was much more interesting than cc’s. mike bloomberg actually gave a pretty good speech that seemed well researched. although i’m sure he just has good speechwriters whereas joel klein probably wrote his himself.

  • actually bwog, says:

    @actually bwog, J-Shap was congratulated for tripling BC’s endowment*

    *insert dirty euphemism here

  • I regret says:

    @I regret not being able to spend time in JShap’s Vag. From what I’ve heard it sounds quite lovely.

  • happy says:

    @happy i was never especially partial to her, but after the class day ceremony today, i will miss jshap. the whole bc ceremony was lovely. thank you, barnard!

    1. barnard grad says:

      @barnard grad it really was lovely, despite the rain. i will miss jshap an extraordinary amount.

  • eah says:

    @eah i’m going to miss her.

  • What?! says:

    @What?! Women doctors? What’s next fish firemen?

  • hmm says:

    @hmm More Barnard women flaunting the “Columbia” on their degrees.

    (A joke. Please calm down.)

    What should Bwog's new tagline be?
