Gotta get up on Friday
…said your alarm clock, but do you really? It’s Friday! And in Columbia world, that means sleeping late, getting a bagel, thinking about doing work, then taking a nap until your friends text you and ask whether you want to do anything (shudder) social tonight.
If you’re feeling festive, though, celebrate National Read a Book day! Whether it’s “The Iliad,” “The Republic,” or Tina Fey’s “Bossypants” (highly, highly recommended), there is surely no shortage of reading material on this campus and in the city. Maybe you just want to get off campus—why not make a trip to the historic Strand?
Or, if you’re in need of some reading a little closer to campus, check out some of today’s top stories in Spectator:
Read this: Mayoral race frontrunner Bill de Blasio spoke to a crowd of supporters in Harlem yesterday and expressed concern about Columbia’s Manhattanville expansion.
Know this: Columbia’s men’s soccer team is preparing to open its season against Creighton University this weekend.
Consider this: Spectator’s Editorial Board vouches for more opportunities for students to create apps that make Columbia easier to navigate.
Here’s more: In our first Weekend issue of the semester, David Salazar writes about NewFest, an LGBT-centered film festival that starts screenings tonight at Lincoln Center.
