Overheard: Closing Remarks

Yesterday was the final day of classes and with that teachers everywhere did their best to be inspiring and really leave a mark on their students.  You may not remember everything Hegel ever said, but you will remember that one time your teacher said something that completely changed the way you look at the world.

Foner, Cupcakes, Wisdom

Need we say more? We’re doubtful, but will continue nonetheless. Tonight at 8 pm in Hamilton 602, the one and only Eric Foner will be doling out “Words of Wisdom” to the class of 2012 over some Baked By Melissa cupcakes. We can’t help but feel that March 6th is a bit premature for closing remarks, […]

Closing Remarks: Poison, People, and Plato

Happy mid-December! Celebrate the end of classes with some pithy phrases your professors say that we call Closing Remarks.  Bruce Robbins, Modern Comparative Fiction: “You don’t have to express yourself. People don’t give a shit, they never have.” Randall Balmer, Evangelicalism: “Thank you so much for being interested and coming to this class. If you […]

It’s Over (Not Really)

Here it is, the last day of classes of the semester. Fun, wasn’t it? We thought so too. As they are wont to do, your professors may end class with a delightful tale, some words of wisdom, or an awkward, abrupt silence. Or if you’re in SEAS, they’ll rush to finish that last example then […]

You Deserve Closure

Tuesday-Thursday classes for Fall 2011 are done forever. They are in the past. Depending on what you study/believe, the past, and those classes, might not strictly exist anymore. Passing over that—and any of the impending existential crises that tend to come a’ knockin’ late Thursday night—you should tell us the notable things your professors said to […]

Procrastinate by checking out all of the ridiculous things professors said before ending class. If you forgot to send one in, or we just foolishly overlooked it, feel free to share it in the […]

It’s the last day of Tuesday/Thursday classes. Before you abandon them forever, let your professors’ wisdom/ejaculations come in through one ear (see right) and onto Bwog.

Professorial Farewells

“How much of what I’ve told you about myself over the course of this semester do you think is true or valid? Absolutely none of it…”* It’s that time of the year again, when your professors make sardonic, life-changing comments because they are glad to be rid of you and your smartphone and your youthful […]

Beloved KJ at Closing Remarks

Tonight’s installment of the Closing Remarks Senior Lecture Series features Columbia’s favorite educator to take bike rides with, Professor Kenneth Jackson. For those who are unfamiliar, Jackson has edited two volumes of a New York City encyclopedia, and teaches a class called History of the City of New York (which you should take before you die-we-mean-graduate!). […]

Closing Remarks: Sex, Drugs, Crimes

And so it ends—not with a bang, but with a whimper—the last semester of the first decade of the new millennium. And if you needed more roundabout and somewhat forced catharsis than that, we asked for your professors’ closing remarks, and here is a collection of the most outstanding. Feel free to leave any we […]

Last Call for Closing Remarks

Today is the last day of class. Nuggets, CULPA and otherwise, abound! As per tradition, at the end of the semester we want to hear your professor’s closing remarks. Your professors will say something (they read Bwog! they know what’s up). If it’s mundane/erotic/humorous or pithy in any form, pass it on to tips@bwog.com, or […]

Call for Closing Remarks

It’s the last day of (okay, okay, Tuesday/Thursday) class! As we bid the fall semester farewell, your professors may seize the opportunity to impart their words of wisdom/insanity/insight. Whatever they have to say, we’d love to know. Send quotes (please include the names of your professor and course) to tips@bwog.com or post them in the […]

Closing Remarks: Out of the Bubble Edition

You know the drill: the semester’s ending, strange things are coming up on our lawns, and your teachers are saying even stranger things. We asked for your professors’ closing remarks, and here are a collection of the most outstanding: Sam Moyn, Historical Origins of Human Rights “Well, it’s been a sheer delight. Have nice lives.” […]

Last Call for Closing Remarks

Tomorrow is the last day of class and therefore probably the first day on which you’ll actually be paying attention in class, and Bwog would, again, be most appreciative if you could keep your ears peeled for anything funny, sappy, or just plain bizarre that comes out of your professors’ mouths. You can send in […]

Call for Closing Remarks

Yes, it’s getting to be that time of year again. As classes wrap up, your professors will undoubtedly have interesting things–or maybe just things–to say. As per usual, we want to hear about it.  Send anything particularly funny/shocking/melodramatic/actually dramatic/inspiring/etc. to tips@bwog.net, or just leave ’em in the comments.
