Wake Up And Learn Things With Bwog, Round 3
Written by Bwog Staff
More advice from old-school Blue & White! Listen and learn! Stop drop and roll!
- Take Art and Music Hum as soon as possible. The further in debt this top-notch education puts you, the more difficult it will be to sit through hours of bull. The topical discussions will rarely satisfy the interested student. That leaves a room full of dissatisfied or disinterested students, who are sitting in the dark, often times literally. Yes, there are excellent sections of these classes, sections taught by the most competent grad students and learned professors. But, good luck finding one of those on a long list of “instructor TBA.” [Editors note: you can get into Art Hum if you say you’re going to be an Art History major. If you’re legitimately musically talented, you can take a test to pass out of Music Hum. If you hate your professor, drop it and do your CULPA research/ask around for a good one.]
- Here at Columbia, there is a well-known fact that, if no other sense of spirit or cohesion pervades our campus, we can all be united in whining. In many instances, the ability to offer a complaint will serve you well as a social lubricant. Here are a few key grumbles The Blue and White suggests you commit to memory:
- “When will those clowns at the Spec learn how to copy edit?”
- “I had forgotten we have a football team.”
- “Those Lerner ramps are a big waste of space.”
- “You actually eat the John Jay hamburgers?”
- “Man, I didn’t realize that advising sucks so much.”
- “My Lit Hum professor blows.”
- If you arrived at Columbia hoping you’d be able to retain and then marry your significant other from high school, think again. For the gentlemen, College is the one shining moment to sow wild oats and bask in the delicious rays of sexual irresponsibility. For the ladies, we’re truly sorry, but your boyfriend is cheating on you.
