Check Your Expectations: Chomsky Edition

Looks like the administration is expecting more of the commotion we saw the last time Chomsky was here. The linguist/philosopher/cognitive scientist/activist etc. returns to Columbia tonight at 6 pm in LeFrak for another round of controversy.

Update, 4:20 pm: We hate to be the bearers of bad news if you were hoping to beat the crowd, but…

Well, at least the weather's nice

You were warned

According to the Center for Palestinian Studies’ site, “Seating is on a first-come, first-seated basis. Preference will be given to CUID holders. Doors open at 5:00 PM. Event will begin promptly at 6:00 PM. Barnard and Columbia students are encouraged to arrive early.”
