Seniors, Your Professors are Already Saying Goodbye

Written by

It’s only November, but your “most cherished professors” are already bidding adieu. Tomorrow at 10:00, registration opens for the first farewell of the Closing Remarks Professor lecture series. Our very own PrezBo will give the inaugural lecture on December 7th. Seniors from all four schools in Columbia University are invited.

Full email from “The Closing Remarks Committee” below:

Dear Columbia Senior,

You are invited to attend the inaugural lecture of the newly-launched Closing Remarks Professor Lecture Series, an initiative by your peers in the Columbia University class of 2011. Lee C. Bollinger, President of Columbia University and a University Professor of Law, will be the first speaker of the Closing Remarks series. The lecture will take place on Tuesday, December 7, 2010 from 6:00-7:00 p.m. in Low Memorial Library. The lecture will be followed by a question and answer session and a reception.

Advance online registration is required and is open to all seniors in Columbia University’s four undergraduate schools. Registration will open on Tuesday, November 23, 2010 at 10:00 a.m. at

The Closing Remarks Professor Lecture Series aims to give Columbia undergraduate seniors a chance to hear parting words from their most cherished professors. Following President Bollinger’s participation in Closing Remarks, the series will resume in the spring and continue through the rest of the semester. If you have any questions, please send an email to

    what a terrible idea

  3. LOL  

    So will future appearances be made by Jeff Sachs and Brian Greene?

  4. This sounds  

    pretty cool...I've never heard PrezBo speak and definitely want to see what he has to say. But yea, I wanna know who the other professors are gonna be.

  5. Well

    Nice idea. Then again, I'd probably like it even more if you could get my actual professors to care about me. Academic departments and faculty hosting social events with students? Let me know when that happens.
