Bwoglines: Alumni Do Things Of Merit

Written by

Huzzah, Jeff! Photo via gocolumbialions.com

CC’10 Salutatorian and baller fencer Jeff Spear has been named the Academic All-American of the year by ESPN.

B&W alum Marc Tracy talks to B-Baller Bruce Robbins about the sacredness (and Jewishness!) of Ulysses. More for Joyce-devotees and regular people: Tablet is hosting a Bloomsday celebration next Wednesday.

Six CU alumni and faculty pwned The New Yorker‘s “20 Under 40” fiction writers worth watching list. (Click for Q&A’s with authors) That’s about 25% 30% of the whole list.

See Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg talk about nuclear proliferation! Tonight, 1501 IAB, 6PM. Facebook event here.

PSA! Click your way to a good conscience: the Nourishing Kitchen in East Harlem, a longtime friend of Columbia’s, is eligible to win a $25,000 grant. The Kitchen “works to alleviate the strong correlation between poor nutritional health and low-income status through health hot meals, produce distribution, community nutrition classes, and yoga classes.”  All you have to do is vote to secure $25,000 for the program. Do it do it, kids.

    Six is 30% of 20, not "about 25%".

    (My catchpa is "the rereads", which seems apt.)

  2. ALSO  

    Kate Berthold, CC'06 (and was in 3 V-Shows in her day), is in this HILARIOUS College Humor video about the BP Oil Spill

    Tolja. J Spear is a good hero to have. The fencing team is gonna suffer hardcore without him.

    Much love for Karen Russell and Wells Tower! So glad I got to have them as professors!

    • Pfft  

      Love them both but it's truly Rivka Galchen for the WIN!

      If I'm a creative writing major now it is in large part because of her beginner's workshop....Hell of a shift from Pre-med and bio. Sorry mom and dad.
