I saw the Morningside Post’s survey about summer love and thought I might share a story in greater detail than the survey allows, despite it not strictly being a summer love story.
Founded in the 1800s as a means of fomenting British support at Columbia University, The Policy Verse has grown into one of SIPA's most a secret, prestigious, poetry collective. Their work centers on struggles with core classes, dealing with subletters, and in this case, not being super good at math. All poetry members swear by blood oath (but, like, not a REAL blood oath) to keep each other's identities secret.
While uncomfortable, swiveling chairs and iconically slow elevators are a nuisance for some, they can be hidden barriers and sources of anxiety for others. One SIPA student shares how EDS, an invisible disability, affects their life and calls on the Columbia community to expand our understanding of diversity and inclusion.
Signing up for classes at SIPA is bananas. Between the number of websites involved and the wild processes you must navigate, most second year SIPA students still have no clue how to do it properly. And while we can’t save those who have already registered, here at the Morningside Post we wanted to help out new students with some quick links to all the information needed to create and upload a schedule for registration.
