A tale of SS-LOL and the bulletin
For today’s Quick and Dirty, we asked our columnists and bloggers for their thoughts on course registration:
Derek Turner, Blogger: As a senior, I didn’t have to live through registration, but I must say I’m happy to see some of my junior friends signing up for Nobility and Civility, by far the best course at Columbia.
Samuel Roth, Columnist: College is the only time in your life that you can study whatever you want, just because you want to. Choose unwisely.
Esfandyar Batmanghelidj, Canon Contributor: Class registration is a funny thing. It’s really about squeezing all the knowledge you could possibly want to gain into a series of temporally and spatially constrained decisions. Things get left out. Roads are left untaken. On second thought, class registration is a really depressing thing.
Caroline Blosser, Blogger: Random registration tip #42—browse the course offerings under comparative literature and foreign language departments, especially if you don’t speak the language! Most of these departments offer courses in English that are riveting and unfamiliar, but also very approachable. The epitome of a great class, in my book!
Alex Collazo, Columnist: Creative Writing still hasn’t finished their schedule, so registration’s a pretty pointless exercise for me. They should have blocked off all the classes in the major until they had days and times—it’s going to be a bigger mess than usual.
