Use Flex At A Drugstore…20 Blocks Away

There’s now a drugstore option for your Flex points, but you’ll have to walk to 96th Street (aka “the ends of the Earth”) to use it. According to an email from Student Services’s Michael Novielli, the CVS at 96th and Amsterdam will be accepting Flex “by the end of July.”  As for other, closer options, […]

AltSpec: Something’s Happening in Tehran

If this new-fangled Twitter thing is to be believed, there’s some big things a-poppin’ in Iran, and the world media has been calling up Columbia professors for their reactions.

The Budget’s Gone Up?

Yes, the endowment may have taken a plunge in recent months, but you may have noticed the news was largely lacking in stories about spending cuts around Columbia. Contrast that with our friends in places such as New Haven, Princeton, Ithaca, and (especially) Cambridge, all of whom knew long ago that cuts were on the […]

The Neighborhood Loses A Pot Dealer

We’re a week behind on this one, but we hope that the hippies among our readers will appreciate the news nonetheless (and that everyone else will be amused). Last Tuesday, the Daily News reported that a “aging hippie with tenuous ties to Columbia University” was arrested on drug selling charges the day before. 49-year-old William […]

Cafe Fresh Closed?

A Siberian location and even chillier service appears to have put yet another Morningside Heights business on ice. Café Fresh seems to be the latest victim of These Economic Times. With its windows covered over with butcher paper and all signs removed for the exterior, the brusque coffeeshop looks vacant from the sidewalk. Some patrons also […]

John Bzdil, former manager of the Pediatric Neurosciences Department, and his wife Heather Rinehart were accused of defrauding Columbia out of thousands with fake bills.

When Traveling with the President Is The Least Important Part

Over the weekend, the Los Angeles Times covered former Dems president and current White House staffer Josh Lipsky, CC ’08, and his trip to Buchenwald as part of Obama’s team. Lipsky, who worked on Obama’s advance team during the campaign, did not volunteer just to get out of the Visitor’s Office; rather, he wanted to […]

AltSpec: Alterations

An incoming 2013er whose father is incarcerated writes about her path to Columbia. James Franco drops out of speaking at UCLA’s commencement. Jeff Sachs wants the US to send water, not money.
