This week’s issue deals with entry—in student groups that make up our school’s social fabric, and college bookstores, and trains and big cities, and a little bit of coursework (this is a university, after all). It’s midterms, and we’re feeling a little closed off from it all, so why not talk about it?
Columbia has 500+ clubs, its admissions brochures tell us. We’re a campus of singers and theater kids, pre-med students and writers, engineers and rock climbers. And with that many club opportunities, shouldn’t there be a place for everyone? In this week’s lead cover story, Mary Marsh finds that it’s complicated.
We’re off next week, but we wish you luck with midterms and hope that a restful spring break is in your future. And with that said, we conclude our fifth issue and take our exit.
