Columbia Health will be instituting a new two-path model for its counseling drop-in system: one option for short-term “problem solving” and another one for more urgent mental health concerns....
Week in Review: Increasing tuition, first VP for diversity, equity and inclusion, and Dr. Wallace Broecker
ARTE helps students discover beauty, empathy, and justice in their communities, and within themselves
When one watches a love story unfold slowly in a musty cinema, listens to a singer’s voice build in an unearthly crescendo, or stands stunned before a mural painted with startlingly bright colors, it is possible to pause for a moment, take a deep breath, and step back from reality. It becomes possible to succumb to the incalculability of life—suddenly, one can reclaim the right to feel....
MacArthur Fellowship-winning filmmaker and choreographer Yvonne Rainer never intended for her work to change the world
Student dancers walk in seemingly erratic paths around Studio 305 in Barnard Hall, some of them holding objects like an empty plastic bottle or a cardboard box.

Week in Review: Special investigation into faculty sexual misconduct, Bacchanal, and campus comedy clubs
Prominent Columbia professors Shapiro and McWhorter debate the accessibility of translation at ‘Shakespeare in Translation?’
Early Modern English isn’t too far from contemporary English, but too many “thees” and “thous” can trip up anyone. In this age, Shakespeare’s work is constantly being translated in order to reach wider modern audiences, but the question remains—to translate or not to translate?...
