So many white people...

“So many white people…”

“Four score and seven years ago…” – (Former) President Abraham Lincoln, 1863

“Imma let you finish…” – (Future) President Kanye West, 2009

These are just some of the great opening lines of our great history.  Who knows what might be penned among them during this remarkable time: the beginning of 2015 fall classes at Columbia.  Send us the good, the bad, and the ugly of whatever your professors—eager to impress or depress their students—have to say upon the beginning of their first class.

Send your professors’ opening remarks to or post in the comments below.  We’ve got no work this week so we’re dying for entertainment at the expense of distinguished scholars and academics.
