Columbia College Website May Now Actually Be Functional

While the Obama-McCain registration page appears to be broken at this time–most likely overwhelmed by all of you constantly refreshing the page–the unchanging black-and-blue interface of Columbia College has undergone a makeover. Here’s hoping it’s more navigable than the last.

Morning Gossip: Moyn on Class Day, JTT Here to Stay?

Wipe that crust from your eyes, Columbians. It’s the second day back from Spring Break, and jetlag is no longer an excuse (unless you’re just returning from some three-day hell of flight cancellations and missed connections, in which case…good luck!) While you suck it up and drown yourselves in coffee, here’s some more stuff we’ve […]

Stalking—It’s Never Been Easier!

All Columbia staff received an email yesterday alerting them to changes in the online directory; evidently, changes are not limited to the new antifreeze-blue “search” button.

The Second Coming?

There’s something different about Columbia’s homepage, and it’s not wittier news headlines. A few days ago, eagle-eyed website watcher Chris Szabla noticed that the two spades on Columbia’s crown logo have morphed back into crosses, prompting our tipster to wonder whether the Campus Crusade for Christ had paid off or if there are more divine […]

Portman Redux

The ever-so-helpful Columbia homepage has a story about Natalie Portman’s legendary visit to Stuart Gottlieb’s Terrorism & Counterterrorism class. Most important, however, is a link to the video footage! See Natalie on Van Am Quad! See Gottlieb looking hot! See yourself, unshaven and weary-eyed, totally unprepared for contact with Hollywood royalty! Also, there’s a full […]

Outsourcing Expansion?

An empty puff piece on South Asian studies at Columbia (“Of Columbia’s many ties with South Asia, India is probably the strongest”) ends with a dazzling flourish of geopolitical hubris: “the buzz about Columbia’s newly revitalized South Asia program will soon be spreading all over the Subcontinent.” Just like militant Islam!
