Have a question? What about a hundred of them? Pretend like you’re not even curious all you want, but we’re on the class of 2021 group pages; we see you guys trying to peep out the scene at Columbia before even rolling up to MoHi. (Wait, what’s that again?)
It’s one thing for us to publish content that will help you ace your exams, but what are students to do if they can’t even find the motivation to drag themselves to Butler? It’s been a long semester, and with the summer on the horizon and the weather getting warmer, we know it might be hard to find the inspiration to do the work required for you to do well on your upcoming exams.

Sleeping ballerinas: The Columbia University Ballet Ensemble made skill-level inclusivity a priority at its presentation of “The Sleeping Beauty” this weekend, with a full range of soloists and ensemble pieces.
