A Call For Opening Remarks

Like High School Musical put it so articulately, this could be the start of something new (and by something new, we mean the new semester)!

As per Columbia tradition, professors will inevitably say something funny, sweet, wild, or weird on the first day of classes, in an attempt to make it seem that they’re not just any professor….they’re a COOL professor. As per Bwog tradition, we want to hear them!

If your professor makes a remark worth sharing, email us at or write it in the comments below. We’ll make a post with all the remarks later in the week.

Sit back, relax, and listen to the weird sh*t your professors say via Pixabay
