maybe one of the coolest things to happen to Bwog

This weekend, Bwog felt a lot and we bet you did too. Send your own stories and weekend adventures to and we will add it to this list or put it on next week’s post!

Bwog gets Sexy:

  • Made out with four people at a party within maybe 2 hours
  • Received not one but two drunk texts from an ex
  • DID NOT drunk text anyone as part of a “same person, new mistakes initiative” (and in respect to Venus retrograde)
  • Planned my ex-boyfriend’s birthday party.
  • Found out my crush is a tool
  • Got shitfaced at “theta soirée” and hooked up with a gal, which for those of you who don’t know is uncharacteristic behavior
  • I founded a new term: volcel (voluntary celibacy)
  • Got $100 from getting drinks w a sugar daddy
  • Tried going on a Bumble date…dinner went well but then we went to Butler together where he made a big scene, disappeared for thirty minutes, and then came back to take his stuff and randomly left without warning
  • Got in a Big Fight with my boyfriend and I hate to blame my period……..but it was my period.
  • Realized this week that sex is utterly useless

Lauren Oneulm, Barnard ’22, stands outside of Milstein with her fanny pack

Elle Ferguson, new Bwog staff writer and freshman at Barnard College, covers the most important event in the Grand Opening of the Milstein Library: the free fanny packs.

Last week’s grand opening of the Milstein Center was a hit; but not just because of the crazy-rich donors and Barnard fulfilling its purpose to educate future female leaders with their new movement laboratory – no, an unexpected celebrity made an appearance: Milstein Fanny Packs.

In the span of two hours, Barnard staff at the Milstein center handed out 1500 fanny packs to enthusiastic students and faculty. Yes, 1500. The idea to hand out fanny packs came from the communications department. According to David Hopson, the creative director of the department, the tip came from a student who told him that fanny packs were back in style.

“I have fond memories of the fanny pack,” Hopson says, recalling the fanny pack he used in his trip across Europe in the 80s, “but I was also happy to see them die.” When asked about how he felt about the return to the fashion arena, Hopson said he was “ambivalent … But you have to follow the youth in these things.”

What did ‘the youth’ think of the fanny packs?

Today’s Cooking with Bwog is dried pollack soup, or bukgeoguk, a Korean recipe by yours truly, EIC Youngweon Lee. It’s good for hangovers and as a comforting lunch. 

Hangover cure soups are a big part of Korean cuisine, and I love eating them for lunch, whether I’m hungover or not. There isn’t one special recipe for hangover soups; they’re just piping hot, packed with nutrients, and good for your body and soul. Dried pollack soup is one typical hangover soup with a simple, quick recipe. Serve with rice to heal your tired body.


  • Dried pollack (sold at HMart – put as much as you want)
  • Sesame oil
  • Bean sprouts (about a handful)
  • Korean radish (or daikon – just a little bit)
  • Soy sauce or fish sauce
  • Salt
  • Green onion or scallion
  • Salted fermented shrimp (saeujeot – optional, sold at HMart)
  • Minced garlic (optional)
  • Tofu (optional)
  • Egg (optional)
  • Hot pepper (optional)
  • Rice water (optional – this refers to the water you washed your rice in)

In football news, Josh Bean (not pictured) is back at QB!

Bummed about the disgustingly humid weather? Sports Editor Abby Rubel is here to cheer you up with the latest from Columbia Athletics.

Women’s Soccer: The Lions (5-5-1, 2-1 Ivy) lost 1-0 against Penn (8-1-1, 2-0-1 Ivy) on Friday. The defeat drops them to fourth in the Ivy League, while Penn is now first thanks to its non-conference record. Harvard and Dartmouth also have 2-0-1 Ivy records. Columbia had a scoring opportunity early in the game, but senior Emma Anderson could not get the ball past Penn’s Kitty Qu, who has seven shutouts to her name this season. Penn’s goal came in the 51st minute from sophomore Breukelen Woodward, who edged the ball past Columbia’s Sophie Whitehouse.

Men’s Tennis: All three Lions were eliminated from Flight A of men’s singles at the ITA Championships. Sophomore Rian Pandole lost in two sets to Yancy Dennis of South Carolina. Senior Austen Huang dropped his first set against Tennessee’s Scott Jones 6-3 but came back to win the second 3-6. Jones took the last set 6-4. Fellow senior William Matheson won his first match in two sets, 6-1, 6-2. He advanced to face University of Miami’s Bojan Jankulovksi and won the first set, but dropped the final two.

Men’s Soccer: Columbia (5-3-1, 2-0 Ivy) advances to second place in the Ivy League with a 2-0 victory over Penn (2-3-3, 0-2 Ivy) this weekend. The Light Blue’s goals came within minutes of each other in the first half. Senior Dylan Mott scored off a deflection, and four minutes later Nike Azume knocked one in from almost 25 yards away. Columbia had five shot attempts in the second half, but none were successful. Goalie Dylan Castanheira posted his third shutout of the season, tying Gary Escher for the career record.

Women’s Golf: 12th/12 teams at the Bettie Lou Evans Invitational
Women’s Tennis: 1 singles champion, 1 finalist, 4-0 in doubles matches at the Wildcat Invitational
Field Hockey: lost 4-0 against Princeton
Volleyball: lost 0-3 against Yale, won 3-1 against Brown
Football: won 34-24 against Marist

This entire article was inspired by my weird distaste for the new green smoothie

True fans of Bwog will know how much we love arbitrarily casting inanimate objects as stereotypical Myers-Briggs personalities. And, with the introduction of the new smoothie flavors in JJ’s, this classification of the smoothies as Myers-Briggs personality types is way overdue. 

Green Apple = ISTP. Weird as heck, but like, an exciting kind of weird. Has an interesting personality to compensate for a definite lack of emotion. The shady student who transferred from Bard College or something into your LitHum class that leaves you asking, “Where did she even come from?” Probably plans to do their own version of the water bottle guy’s performances on College Walk. Also probably a narc.

Raspberry Lemonade = ESFJ. New, kind-of-attractive kid on your floor who just moved in. Relentlessly offers to host pregames in their suite because they want to be accepted. Kind of vapid and shallow though. Probably won’t remember your name after the first week of knowing you.

Strawberry Banana = ISFJ. A good person, through and through. Will bring you a dessert from But Caf after you Snapchat them about your existential dread induced by midterm season. Attends all those study breaks involving puppies on campus. Also attends all the CCSC-hosted events throughout the semester.

Mango = ESTP. Thinks about sex, a lot. Intentionally blocks your way when you’re trying to move from the food area to the seating area of JJ’s. Interests include having loud conversations with friends in the middle of Butler 209 or taking phone calls while auxing for a pregame. Chaotic neutral who probably has some sociopathic tendencies. Definitely takes off shirt at EC parties.

Berry = ISTJ. Who is she? Can go for hours unnoticed, and actually doesn’t exist anymore. Was actually a great flavor/personality type, until everyone forgot about them.

Mondays are for music, motions, and mastery of the CCSC reserve fund. Nadra Rahman reports from the depths of the Satow Room, her view obstructed by tall club representatives. 

Last night, CCSC had a packed agenda, fielding requests for money or support from UndoCU, the Native American Council, Every Vote Counts, and even our merry friends from the Manhattan School of Music. Though time allotments were artfully planned and notated, a circular conversation about UndoCU’s co-sponsorship request took up most of the meeting time.

UndoCU & Austerity (Overture)

Representatives from UndoCU arrived with a snazzy Powerpoint, highlighting their plans for two major events this semester. The first would be an info session intended to provide undocumented high school students in New York City with insights into the college admissions and financial aid landscape. The second would be a college clinic during which trained volunteers will help high school students with college applications, personal statements, and financial aid applications.

Because UndoCU is not yet a recognized student club, and as such receives no funding from club governing boards, it is dependent on co-sponsorships and grants for funding—as a result, the club asked for a large financial co-sponsorship from CCSC, presenting tiers that ranged from $900 to $3,910.

But the reception was not v positive

honestly, mood

Happening in the World: In Brazil, far-right Jair Bolsonaro will face the left-wing Workers’ Party candidate, Fernando Haddad for presidency. Mr Bolsonaro, a Catholic, won the support of many evangelical Christians by saying he would defend traditional family values. He has also won over many Brazilians who think his law-and-order stance will make Brazil safer.

Happening in the US: Melania Trump, while touring Egypt, is in a video in which she states she supports Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation as Supreme Justice, and that she does not always support her husband’s tweets.

Happening in NYC: Mayor Bill de Blasio was caught on camera on Thursday brushing off a homeless woman who confronted him at a Brooklyn gym and interrupted his stretching routine to demand housing reform. He replied, “I’m in the middle of doing my workout. I’m sorry. I can’t do this now.”

Happening on Campus: There will be the first part of a three-session workshop at Lerner Hall in the Counseling & Psychological Services’ Conference Room on the 8th floor called “Enhancing Your Relationship: A Workshop for Couples.” The sessions will provide practical tools for couples who wish to strengthen their relationship, including understanding relational expectations and beliefs, how to nurture the positives in the relationship, and
how to improve problem-solving ability and communication skills.
