Peer Adviser Post: How to Plow Through the Never-Ending Midterm Season

Peer Adviser Post: How to Plow Through the Never-Ending Midterm Season
by Dylan Cooper, CC '18

I remember reading the syllabus in my General Chemistry class during my first year. I remember that awkward moment when I asked the student sitting next to me if our professor had made a mistake in scheduling the midterms, which spanned from the third week of classes till the day before reading week.

He hadn't, and soon after I discovered an old Columbia adage:

There's nothing middle about midterms.

Art Humanities and Music Humanities in One Semester

 In Spring 2017, a class of 22 students will have the opportunity to take both Art Humanities and Music Humanities in the same semester as part of an initiative to enhance connections between the classes. The instructors of both classes will be present at every class meeting; together, they will accompany the class to all the required musical performances and museum visits. Students and instructors will have a shared experience of Art and Music Humanities.
