Digitalia Columbiana, December 2014

These excerpts were culled from documents left on Columbia’s lab computers. We encourage our readers to submit their own digitalia finds to us, via email, at bwgossip@columbia.edu.

My goal is to persuade that an infinite universe would preclude human uniqueness. I have studied many written works on the topic of infinity of space, and I have examined both sides of the argument.

It is time for the human race to return to the optimism of 1957 and once again begin looking into a future illuminated by nuclear light. The atom is, once again, our friend.

[Expand conclusion, cite info in last few paragraphs]

For clarification, I would like to share some of the personal experiences that students have shared with the administration. There have been instances of student residents being ridiculed and scorned for cooking and preparing their own ethnic dishes; the other students had labelled it “weird” or “disgusting”.

We realize that racism cannot be solved overnight, but with everyone’s help, we can set high goals and strive for a better tomorrow.

Thank you.

Madeline Lee,

President of Columbia University

There are two types of people who do laundry: those who read the labels and those who don’t. Some of you will pick it up out of the hamper and automatically throw it in. Others of you will pick it up, read the label, interpret the label, and depending on the interpretation, throw it in or not. But, have you ever thought the bigger implications of the tiny label on the inside lining of your shirt that makes you itch?

From a Lit Hum Final paper:

By posing death as brutal and violent, Owen supports his belief that dying in battle is not as glorious as it is made out to be by those who have not experienced death firsthand…His claim, then, is that dying for your country seems like a sweet thing to do until you actually experience and understand what it really means to die a gruesome death in battle for the sake of some “glory.”
