While reflecting on how the Barnumbia experience has changed in the era of COVID-19, I realized that I won’t be able to host a visiting prospective student this year, and it made me very sad.
Housing registration for Columbia and SEAS students for the 2019-2020 school year closes this Thursday, March 7th. Lottery numbers for each registered group will be available on March 26th, post-spring break. Confused about how it all works? Internal Editor Zoe Sottile breaks it down.
This afternoon we received an email from a self-titled “rapidly crusting alum,” who has imparted some special words of counsel. With a full Spring semester ahead, we share this timely letter. To: firstname.lastname@example.org From: Anonymous Subject: Crusty alum advice Hi Bwog, I am a rapidly-crusting alum writing you from the office. And at the start of this spring […]

Free TimesSelect is here with the wave of your Columbia/Barnard email address. And although you have to give your CU email to the Times, (and to all your professors and Michelle Diamond and Lee Bollinger and Austin [!] Quigley), that doesn’t mean you have to deal with CubMail, Columbia’s the homage to 2002’s latest technologies.
