Update on the Class Day situation?

12 Mar

Spec has the skinny on the short list for Columbia College’s class day speaker.

  • Kofi Annan
  • Ben Jealous (NAACP President and recent John Jay honoree)
  • Julia Stiles (also a recent John Jay honoree)
  • Bill Clinton  (father to Chelsea, a public health student)
  • Sonia Sotomayor, who has taught at Columbia’s Law School

We’ll find out on March 24, Spec says. I’m thinking Kofi, since it seems more convenient. On the other hand, Columbia did fix Bill’s heart. But who knows?

(Yes yes, my interest in this is sort of irrational, since I don’t even go to CC. Still, having heard CC Class Day speakers for the last three years, I feel like this one brings me full circle. Yikes).
