Classes To Make Your Spring Semester Bloom

Gotta keep the admissions student-teacher ratio alive

Spring registration season is upon us, which is only the beginning of you spending more time stalking unknown professors on CULPA than stalking your best friends on Facebook. And we applaud you for your valiant efforts to attempt to handpick a perfect batch of professors, but remember your Courses by ADI will only look cool if your classes have cool titles. Because Bwog’s always got your academic back, here is the Spring 2015 list of classes to take before you die (because we sense that’s not how you’re already approaching selection of your classes).

      @curious george can you elaborate on why I shouldn’t take the class? is it the grading or the workload or the subject matter itself?

        @also curious I got really excited about this course upon discovering it, but I’d be really interested in hearing why you/anyone else didn’t like it. Any comments would be super helpful, thanks!

  • anonymous says:

    @anonymous Milnor teaches a class on Martial–I’m not sure she teaches one on “Marital.”

  • English CC'15 says:

    @English CC'15 Took a class with Mendelson once. It was the worst English class I’ve ever taken. so bad. If you’re an English major you know how good the department is, don’t waste your time. If you’re not, even more reason to not waste your time.

    1. anonymous says:

      @anonymous I’m not an English major, but I took one of Mendelson’s classes and I loved it. Not sure why it would be considered the worst.

      1. Also English CC'15 says:

        @Also English CC'15 He once said something like “the person who hates the class most is the person getting the most out of it.”

    2. CC15 says:

      @CC15 I’m a senior and I still think Mendelson’s LitHum had more impact on me than any class I’ve taken at Columbia. In a good way.

  • F says:

    @F Sonam Singh in Barnard’s English department! He only teaches first-year classes right now but if you can pretend to be a first year and pull it off well–maybe he wont notice!
