  • The men's soccer team plays in the NCAA championship

Spring

  • May: Mortimer Adler earns an honorary bachelors degree from Columbia despite refusing to take the Swim Test six decades earlier

Fall

  • The football team ties a game with Bucknell, giving rise to a streak of 44 consecutive winless games that lasts until 1988.
