Written by

One of the greatest perks of an Ivy League education is having all sorts of guest lecturers and talks hosted right on campus. Yet many of these great talks are not publicized enough.

  8. WOOT  

    Oh please tell me this was inspired by the comment I left on the post about the sleep/dreams lecture, because if this was totally my idea it will make my day.

  9. this feature is great!  

    thanks!

  10. Cool feature  

    I worry about it becoming a bloated rehash of the events calendar on the left, but good idea nonetheless. It would be really helpful if you included links to the event websites or something for more information. Sure, I could Google it myself, but if I were that proactive I would already know about these events and wouldn't need the Bucket List...

    "my hatred for the institution of Barnard is only tempered by my hatred for women, which occasionally requires manipulating them into thinking their ill-conceived defenses of the pathetic excuse for a shadow across the street are reasonable, though clearly not, insofar as it makes the pussy-chase easier. Consequently, the least traces of tolerance for the place follow from the quite venial ruse, vis-a-vis its unavoidable nature, to degrade women more fully."
