Ideas on Campus
Happy Holidays! This month, Columbia University offers you warm greetings along with a host of post-holiday events to keep the cheer going strong. Come out to Madison Square Garden to root for the men's basketball team; join us in India for a panel with Nicholas Dirks; celebrate the traditions of African music at Miller Theatre; watch a clip about new media online; join us for drink and a schmooze at Sundance; read President Bollinger on the new Committee on Global Thought; and celebrate your own artsiness at My Columbia. There are many ways to stay excited—in a restful way—in January.
