Do all emails from the Presidents and Deans sound the same to you? We’ve written before on some tendencies that we’ve noticed in emails coming from campus administrators. Practically the same email comes clogging up your inbox every week, and you can’t even reply-all asking to be taken off the listserv. If they all sound […]
On Monday, student Alix Prybyla brought to our attention a Columbia-released time management chart, which made recommendations such as spending 2 hours a week for personal hygiene, 2 hours a week for exercise, and 49.5 hours a week for homework/studying. In addition, the page normalized 1.5 hours of free time a day, which covered extracurriculars, checking emails, and […]
We admit it — we’ve been playing hard to get. For weeks, we tagged our posts “Bwog needs a baby mama” looking for someone to come along and sweep us off our feet. But little did we realize, NYU Local has been brushing our ankles with a broom all year. They tweeted us nice things, […]

CCSC got down to business at last night’s meeting, formulating what specific requests they would send to Deantini after the results of the recent survey were examined. Joe Milholland, from behind a cup of Starbucks coffee, reports on what CCSC eventually decided were the most pertinent issues. They’ll be easy to guess if you’ve read our […]
Monday man Joe Milholland reports on another encounter—more a skirmish than a battle—in the never-ending War on Fun, in addition to delivering a few updates on academic policy. CCSC never fails to delight us! “This thing makes me sadder than almost anything else,” said Deantini at Sunday night’s Columbia College Student Council (CCSC) meeting, referring to […]
This edition of Night in the Life comes in the form of imagined conversations between Benjamin Makansi and Vivek Ramakrishnan–a.k.a. Ben and Viv, your notoriously fearless leaders of CCSC. 10:59 pm Ben: Oh crap! We forgot to send an email about CCSC! Viv: Are you sure we did anything this week? B: I don’t know! […]

For those of you who don’t know, James Valentini–or Deantini, as we affectionately call him–is the Dean of Columbia College. Unfortunately, he seems to have lost his way.
