Today was registration day for the class of 2023, and many Barnard first-years found themselves unable to register for their required First-Year Seminar (FYS) or First-Year Writing (FYW) classes.
Columbia Confessions has only been around for a little while, but it’s already generated some weird posts—including one in which a stoner-turned-anti-marijuana-crusader exposes us as alleges us to be a propaganda network.
Bwogger and SoCal resident Nicki Camberg has some questions, namely: what are duck boots? What is she supposed to do when it snows? Is sledding an actual thing? These aren’t rhetorical please help her.
Have you ever wondered whether or not certain less genotypical traits such as mental illness, anxiety, or PTSD can have intergenerational effects? Deputy Editor Vivian Zhou is a Neuro major, so it was only appropriate that
The Lions racked up some serious hardware this week as the winter season comes to a close. Breaststroker and overall swimming machine Katie Meili walked away from the Women’s Swimming and Diving Ivy League Championships this weekend with three individual titles, three pool records, three school records, two Ivy League records, the Swimmer of the […]
Nemo postponed quite a few sporting events this past weekend, but some Columbia teams couldn’t be deterred by the weather in a way that would make the postal service proud. Women’s Swimming & Diving trumped Princeton 194-104 in a home finale honoring seniors. The 200 medley relay broke the school and pool record, and Alena […]
Someone from Columbia is participating in Super Bowl XLVII tonight! Well, he’s not playing or anything, but Associate Athletic Director of Sports Medicine Jim Gossett with be on the sidelines serving as one of two “spotters,” whose job is to look for head and neck injuries during the game. Pretty big gig for an […]
It was a busy break for the Lions with a number of successes to report. Men’s Basketball opened the Ivy League season with a big win over Cornell, and Men’s and Women’s Swimming & Diving added Ivy League wins against Brown and Cornell. Fencing cleaned up at the Penn State Invitational on January 12th, winning nine […]
In some of the final contests before a “break” for finals, the Lions came away with some big wins. In the Men’s Basketball game this afternoon, senior Brian Barbour reached the 1,000-career points milestone, making him just the 25th player in program history to achieve it. Barbour’s 19 points helped the Lions to a 54-42 […]
Even as the impending doom of finals approaches, the Lions remain in action and thankfully move indoors for the winter sports season. Unfortunately, it was a better weekend for individual performances than team results, especially in basketball. In a sold-out Levien Gymnasium, Men’s B-Ball let a 17-point lead slip away against Bucknell, even as senior […]
Though the Football season came to a close this weekend with a disappointing road loss to Brown, CU sports are far from over this semester as winter season contests are already in full-force. But before we leave the fall behind, we should say a few final words about the fall season. Sixteen Lions were named […]
The Empire State Bowl may well have lived up to its grandiose name on Saturday as Football played their best half of the season to beat Cornell 34-17 in the final home game of 2012 – or forever if the Mayans have their way. While Football was the only team that lifted a trophy this weekend, […]
Before what will almost undoubtedly be a record-breaking storm, the Lions made some history of their own this weekend as Football beat Yale for the first time since 2001. After blowing fourth quarter leads in two straight games, the Lions finally made a late-game charge of their own, coming back to beat Yale with a […]
It was a heartbreaking Homecoming weekend for the Lions as team after team fell to Dartmouth by the slimmest of margins, often watching leads disappear. For those 11,127 fans that survived their pre-games and made it into Wein Stadium (not just to the tailgate), probably covered in beer and runny face paint, it was a […]
This week’s sports contests featured a number of nail-biters, keeping fans on the edge of their seats until the final whistle. In Field Hockey, senior sensation Gabby Kozlowski scored a breakaway goal in double overtime to beat Penn and put her one goal away from the all-time career goal record. Unfortunately, not all these close […]
Columbia athletics put up a series of tough fights this week. A tough one for women’s soccer and volleyball, but both cross country teams found victory in the Metropolitan Championships in the Bronx. Field hockey had their ups and downs with a win and a loss, and the football team continued to struggle with a […]
After beating up on the Big Red last weekend, the Lions had a number of tough contests that ended with mixed results. Men’s Cross Country cruised their way to a second place finish in the Louisville Classic. Women’s Soccer took down Brown for their second straight Ivy League match, putting them at the top of […]
It was a tough weekend for Cornell’s women’s teams as they rode the long bus back to Ithaca having lost all three of the weekend’s contests to the Lions. First, on Friday, senior Isabel King’s lone goal in the eighth minute of play was good enough for a 1-0 victory in Women’s Soccer. Then, sophomore […]
Class of 2016, cherish this moment. Your Columbia Lions football team is undefeated. The team opened the 2012 season with a narrow 10-9 victory over Marist, erasing fears that the Lions would have another 9-game winless streak to start the season and undoubtedly taking some pressure off new football head coach Pete Mangurian. The football […]
