As finals week begins and the overwhelming stress that looms over our campus grows, it’s important to remember that students who struggle with mental health issues are everpresent members of the larger Barnumbia community.
We need all the comfort we can get with finals (and snow!?) around the corner. Enjoy a gooey, chocolate-hazelnutty, warm mugful of goodness as you study.

Columbia is filled to the brim with unique and interesting people. But let’s be honest, how many of them can say they have 13 solo albums and are a superstar in the world of Hasidic music? Probably only Lipa Schmeltzer, a GS student and father of four. Music mavens Tom Kicak and Dylan Cooper interviewed […]
The hyper-talented Taylor Simone, CC’14, has been entertaining Columbia with her soulful voice since she arrived on campus four years ago.

While we’ve come to realize that Columbians may not be the most athletically inclined people, no one can deny that the Olympics are something that the whole world can come together for (mainly because they’re on TV). This year, at least 10 former and current Columbia students and coaches will be competing. Check out who’ll be […]
As you may have heard, the Columbia fencing team is pretty freaking baller. This summer, four of our own fencers will be going to London to compete in the 2012 Olympics. James Williams, CC ’07, was an alternate in Beijing in 2008, where he was called in to help the US win silver. He is […]
