They’re All Dead White Men, Anyways

Written by

Earlier today, the Columbia College Fund sent out an email to young alumni, hat in hand. Opening with a stirring description about we lucky students who are “experiencing life at Columbia College,” the email made a huge mistake. In a zealous sentence devoted to the Core, the Alumni Center gushed about “comparing the Republic to the Leviathan in Lit Hum.” Oops.

  1. that's ok  

    if alumni are anything like most current students, it's not like they read either of those books, or cared at all about their core classes, anyway.

  2. um  

    that is not true. some of us read both of those (and all of) the books and did care about them.

  3. but  

    what a great picture on the top of the email

    That's what happens when you are zealous about anything. That's what the Core should really teach you.

    I haven't read The Republic or The Leviathan. What's wrong with comparing them?

    • Uhh  

      you read them in CC, so it’s…

      a) unlikely you’ll compare them in lit hum
      b) unlikely you’ll compare them freshman year
      c) oh, and let’s be real, unlikely you’ll compare them directly ever
