Happy Half Semester Day!

Whether the news brings you excitement or regret, today marks the official mid-semester mark. However, that’s not all there is to the story. If we dig a little deeper, we can find a hidden message within this seemingly arbitrary academic calendar date…

Today is 10/18/2012. 10 + 18 + 2012 = 2040.

Today is the half semester day, which makes us a quarter through the academic year. 2040/4= 510

Now, if we search CU (Columbia University) and 510 in CLIO, we find a recording of Artie Shaw:

Congratulations on making it through half a semester.
