She’s Here!

Written by

Update, 6:10 pm: A tipster passed on some photographic proof of Oprah’s visit.

Update, 1:36 pm: According to a tipster, Oprah is officially off campus. She was last seen driving away in a black Suburban in front of Barnard Hall.

The day we’ve all been waiting for has come. Oprah Winfrey is currently speaking on the third floor of Barnard Hall to a group of sixty selected Barnard students in search for their thoughts about what young female students feel about the status of women today. With all the excitement over one of America’s most important women presence on campus, female Columbia College students pose the question: Can they be strong, beautiful women, too?

  4. I NEVER thought I'd say

    Plenty of esteemed and/or otherwise famous people speak at Columbia College as opposed to Barnard and nobody even questions it--we recognize that CC women are just as strong and beautiful as any of us, but please just let us BC ladies bask in Oprah's glory for a moment without making this a competition, k?

    Is it just me or are the like and dislikes effectively a poll of the readership of Bwog.


    To all the Barnard students thinking they are doing any good by "defending" their school here, and to all the Columbia students who think they are being cool, hilarious, renegade badasses by attacking Barnard students

    I love Oprah, but not as much as I love my Barnard friends!

    Like most people on this campus, I judge people by their character, not what college they are in.

    Barnard jokes are for underclassmen, grow the fuck up.

    Guys, it's not about who goes to what school, or who can spell what word, or who is somebody else's cum dumpster. It's about all of us sticking together as one human race. Also, it's about you tuning into the OWN network.

    just because I go to Barnard doesn't mean I have to upvote every Barnard poster...esp. the dumb ones. Come on. Why can't we all just hold hands and be happy?

    It's not like Barnard said this is only for Barnard Students. When Chomsky spoke last semester anyone could attend because the venue was large and he was invited to speak. Oprah invited herself. She wanted to speak with Gloria Steinem (who attended a women's college) and women who have reaped tremendous benefits from her activism. Oprah chose Barnard. Oprah's production team chose the venue and that limited the number of student to sixty.

    Secondly, cut the crap, without institutions like Barnard College all across, the country proving that women are just as capable, and without activists like Gloria Steinem women would not be allowed to attend CC or SEAS in first place. I am so glad Columbia finally got it together and went co-ed AND I am so happy to be a Barnard student. It doesn't have to be mutually exclusive.
