CCSC was a blast this week, with a guest appearance from GSSC, VP Communications’ enthusiastic cursing, and an Among Us celebration!
With midterms (mostly) over and finals yet to start, I took on my biggest Cooking With Bwog challenge yet. (Previously, I have Eaten My Way Through the Core.) Follow along as I recount four perilous
Steve Coll, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and former Managing Editor of the Washington Post, has been named the new dean of Columbia’s J-school. Like outgoing J-school dean Nick Lemann, Coll is a staff writer at the New Yorker, which is apparently a farm team for Columbia J-school deans. Before being named as dean, Coll served […]
