Core Corner

Core Cartoon Caption Contest

Cartoon drawing of several people standing and seated in front of Columbia University's Low Library. Many people are wearing attire from bygone eras, and one person wearing such attire is taking a selfie with young people of the present day.

In honor of the Centennial, we asked four artistic alums to take inspiration from the Core and provide a cartoon in need of a caption — one for each of our four issues this academic year. This installment is by editorial cartoonist R.J. Matson ’85.

The winning caption will be published in the Spring 2020 issue, and the winner will get a signed print of Matson’s cartoon. Any College student or College alum may enter; no more than three entries per person. Submit your idea, along with your full name, CC class year and daytime phone, to cct_centennial@columbia.edu by Monday, February 10.


Congratulations to William A. Teichner ’86, the winner of our Fall issue contest!
