Excuses, Excuses: Eyesites Mad Libs

So, you didn’t write your first paper. You misread the calendar, you had one too many G&Ts over the weekend, you really felt that it was better for your mental health to sit in the MoMA sculpture garden. Whatever the cause, the clock is ticking, your eyes are twitching, and you’re not going to finish that essay on The Odyssey by 10:25 a.m. It’s time to send The Email, but because we know you’re low on creativity this week, we’ve made it easy for you. Check out the Madlibs featured in this week’s Eye after the jump. More »

Seriously, Mark?

This week’s issue of The Eye features an open letter to Mark Zuckerberg. Because the man needs to know that change ain’t always for the better.

Mark, we need to talk.

First, it was that awkward second location of Chat. Then, you started sorting my friends into these mysterious “Lists.” Soon enough, my every sidebar was filled with bizarre tidbits of information, ranging from the humiliating (e.g., “More Photos of Person You’re Already Shamelessly Stalking!”) to the just plain hateful (believe it or not, I’d rather not be reminded that, on September 23, 2007, I happened to think my lunch was “awesum!! <3”).

Still, I bore those changes with little protest, because I understand: evolution is as much a part of Facebook as it is of life so, if only for the sake of my FarmVille, I was prepared to tough it out.

But now, Mark, things are getting serious. Now, you’ve come into my homepage. More »

Eyesites: Blast from the past

This week’s edition of The Eye featured an article on the slow death of our nation’s bookstores. So we decided to take a look at the ghosts of gadgets past, from the golden years before your favorite gadget had to start with an “i”.

Create your own adventure: An odyssey of academic proportions

Hey, freshmen! Remember how when you were a kid, Choose Your Own Adventure books were the best? You could run from a creepy haunted house, investigate an old well, open doors and look for secrets…the possibilities were endless.

Luckily, the days of tough choices and turning pages aren’t behind you—college is like its own Chose Your Own Adventure, with every decision you make irrevocably marking the path of your future, turning the pages till the book ends and you’re looking for a job in a thankless economy.

Just kidding! Not every decision made in your first year is life-altering, but that didn’t stop us from taking a look at what it would be like if it were. Choose wisely! Adventure awaits after the jump! More »

How to spend your extra hour tomorrow

You know all those times you’ve been at Columbia and thought to yourself, “If only I had just one more hour…”? Well, good news! This weekend, you do. The end of daylight saving time, or “fall back,” happens tomorrow at 2 a.m., which means we all get an extra hour. But if for some reason you’re lost on what to do, here are five ways to spend those precious 60 minutes.

Take a free yoga class: Yoga to the People offers five 60-minute yoga sessions on Sunday. (Travel time to St. Mark’s not included.) More »

From the magazine: thank God it’s over

By now, most of us have finished up our weeks (my apologies to those trudging over to that Bio midterm) and we can finally say goodbye to this sort of schedule that was printed in today’s Eye.

There’s a first time for everything…

It’s the first day of April and the first sunny day this week (keep your fingers crossed), and if this is the first time you’re reading The Eye, you’re in for a treat. Our very first naked photo is after the jump (and on the back page of our print issue, in case you want a hard copy). More »

All the right questions

Will Briski

As Columbia students, we’re used to being asked impossible questions by professors. It’s a form of torture that supposedly makes us smarter and our college experience worthwhile. Now that it’s basically the weekend, take a mental break and let The Eye answer some questions for you.

The Rejected Names

Wikimedia Commons

Now that we have some time on our hands, it might be nice to answer that one question that has been echoing around campus for weeks now: why the name “Spectrum?” And instead of boring you with our logic, I thought it might be more interesting to enumerate the many names that almost were, and why they weren’t.
