CULPA is down and everyone is scared.
Shopping Week is upon us. First-years are frantically emailing their professors, trying to understand why they’re on the waitlist for every class they need to take. SEAS students are complaining about how they don’t even get to choose which classes they take every semester. Upperclassmen are trying desperately to finish their Core requirements without having to take ArtHum at 8:40.
In our hour of need, we’ve been abandoned. CULPA.info, the website Columbia students use to write and read reviews about professors and TAs (most of which are 5+ years old—thanks tragedy of the commons) has been down since sometime today, though Bwog Staff attests it was up and running last night. Students trying to figure out which Beginner Spanish professor or Global Core class is least likely to murder their GPA have been left stranded without CULPA’s famous gold and silver nuggets to guide their way. Class Facebook groups have been trying to locate the website’s moderators, hoping to locate anyone who could possibly remedy the situation before the period ends but as of 2:15 PM, the website is still non-operational.
CULPA, please return to us. Without you, who are we supposed to rely on to ensure that we don’t end up with a tyrannical calc professor who reads directly out of the textbook in every lecture? Our own gut instinct? Vergil+??? No thank you.
