Bwog Is Drunk As Usual

  • Bought a bunch of nice groceries to cook for dinner. Went to Mel’s instead.
  • Was cut off by my aunt at a family dinner after 3 glasses of wine.
  • Stayed at 1020 until closing time for the first time. Pounded back seven drinks and only paid for three.
  • Was the only sober person on a bus full of drunks.
  • Got drunk and sobered up on Saturday morning, got drunk and sobered up again on Saturday evening, and went to bed before midnight.
  • Drank more Pabst Blue Ribbon than one person should in a weekend.
  • Realized I’m neck-deep in unrequited love.
  • Went to see A Star Is Born on a date but she left 15 minutes before the end, leaving me sobbing alone in the theatre.
  • Crashed a Model UN party and funneled their full vodka/chaser supply into red solo cups for betchy solo use.
  • Went to Jungsik for dinner and drinks. Created an elaborate fake backstory about us being grad students who are researching “the sociology of food and drink” when my friend accidentally let something slip to the bartender about us being students at Columbia.
  • Went to my first ever frat party and realized it was not the hype I was expecting.
  • Went to my first Carman “party” with a group of fellow WOC and the people at the party were SHOOK as if they hadn’t seen WOC before.
  • Hung out at 1020 and went to Mel’s after and there was a grand total of 3 people there.

a beautiful creation

The weather’s just brisk enough to remind Regan Mies, first-year Bwogger, of fall bonfires and roasting s’mores. She realizes, unfortunately, that it might not be realistic to have an evening bonfire get-together on Butler Lawn, and has instead crafted a recipe for  S’mores Dessert Dip using ingredients gathered strictly from John Jay and Ferris! Share with friends in the warmth of your dorm, or eat it entirely by yourself with a spoon–we’re not judging.

Disclaimer: Make sure you grab your ingredients with a meal swipe—CU Dining offers take-out boxes for you to bring back to your dorm.

This week: S’mores Dessert Dip

Appliances: a microwave


  • 6 packets of cream cheese
  • two John Jay coffee-cups full of mini marshmallows (can be found by the ice cream machine)
  • an almost-coffee-cup of marshmallow fluff
  • a half-coffee-cup of hot fudge (or Nutella, if you’re up to it??)
  • a green take-out box of as many graham crackers as you’d like
  • a pinch of salt

Trying to keep your grades up like

Sports Editor Abby Rubel interrupts your midterm season to bring you the news from the field(s). 

Men’s Soccer: The Lions (5-4-1, 2-1 Ivy) lost 2-1 against the Princeton Tigers (7-4-1, 2-0-1) on Saturday. Princeton now leads the Ivy League, while Columbia drops to third behind 2-1 Cornell. The Tigers scored both goals in the first 30 minutes. In the second half, Columbia first-year Andrew Stevens knocked the ball in from 15 yards away for the Light Blue’s only goal of the game. Columbia had two opportunities to score in the game’s final minutes but were unable to tie it up. The Lions are currently third in the Ivy League.

Football: Columbia (3-2, 0-2 Ivy) remains winless in the Ivy League after a 13-10 loss against Penn (4-1, 1-1 Ivy) this weekend. Despite the presence of Josh Bean, the Lions struggled to put points on the board. The Light Blue’s defense held the Quakers to just two field goals in the first half. Columbia’s first touchdown came early in the third quarter off of a 21-yard touchdown pass from Bean to junior Kaleb Pitts. Senior Chris Alleyne kicked the extra point to make it 7-6 Columbia. With less than five minutes left in the third, Alleyne kicked a 46-yard field goal to increase Columbia’s lead to four. Penn’s quarterback ran the ball in for a touchdown to make it 13-10 with plenty of time left in the game. Columbia didn’t convert on its next possession, but forced Penn to punt with 2:34 to play. Bean led the Lions swiftly downfield, completing a 43-yard pass to Pitts on fourth-and-18. The Blue and White were threatening to score from the Penn 24, but Bean’s pass was intercepted to end the game.

Volleyball: The Lions (9-8, 3-4 Ivy) lost both their matches 0-3 this weekend. They lost the first two sets against Penn (5-13, 2-5 Ivy) by 7 and 10 points, but battled back in the third, only to lose 25-23 after two consecutive Penn kills. The Light Blue’s matches against Princeton (13-5, 6-1 Ivy), the reigning champion, were even tougher. After hanging in on the first 25-20 set, the Lions couldn’t come back, and dropped the next two sets 25-15 and 25-16. Princeton is now second in the Ivies, behind Yale, while Columbia hangs on in fourth just ahead of Harvard.

Field Hockey: Lost 0-2 at Penn, won 5-4 against Fairfield
Women’s Golf: Lost at Richmond, Columbia’s Qingyi Symba Xu finished in 2nd place as an individual
Women’s Soccer: Lost 0-1 against Princeton

Order among chaos.

Staff Writer Henry
Golub wrote about Lerner
using six haikus


Time, time, who needs it?
When I schlep up your long ramps
My beating heart aches


Ferris is crowded
Lines last for thirty minutes
A bagel for me


I like nothing more
Than placing my pencil down
And seeing it roll

The ramps are actually lines of poetry.


If I had to choose
Between stairs and many ramps
I’d choose the wrong path


So many doors closed
A gap opens on the left
A crowd blocks the way


O elevators! <3
You are for decoration
And you never work

the real question is why do SEAS kids get 10 dollars a week when all they do is online problems sets?

Bwogger Nadra Rahman sits in on an unexpectedly short CCSC meeting, bringing you all the printing quota and letter-writing info you desperately seek.

CCSC operated efficiently last night, beginning the night with a brief printing quota Q&A with CUIT representatives. This was followed by a sort of re-enactment of last week’s meeting—at which UndoCU and the Native American Council (NAC) had both appeared to ask for event funding and support. This week, both groups appeared again to further their engagement with CCSC, with better results.

I Got $85 In My Pocket

Three adults (and CUIT leaders) spent a chunk of their Sunday evening in the Satow Room: Gaspare LoDuca, Chief Information Officer and VP for IT; José Santiago, AVP of Client Services; and Scott Miller, Associate Director of Strategic Communications.

A Q&A with the trio was prefaced by International Students Rep Nikola Danev’s recap of the history behind the printing quota changes. Danev stated that the printing system was switched over to a semesterly (from week-by-week) configuration due to a student council initiative last year (true) and that the lower quota came along with that switch. All the changes are to be seen as part of a pilot program, and data will be analyzed at the end of the semester to help shape future printing policy. According to Danev, Columbia still has the highest printing quota of all the Ivies, even with the reductions.

I wonder what they had to say

I knew it was too good to be true rip

Editor’s note: This article has been updated to accurately reflect Alqesem’s status. Her deportation has been suspended and her appeal will be heard by the Israeli Supreme Court this week. 

Happening in the World: American Lara Alqesem, 22, was barred from entering Israel for being a president of a small chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine at the University of Florida. The Tel Aviv district court rejected her initial appeal, but Israel’s Supreme Court has suspended her deportation and will hear her case this week.

Happening in the US: Whirlwind romance between comedian Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande came to an end this weekend, as the couple broke off their engagement with both parties acknowledging that it simply was not the right time for their relationship to take off. Sources said the two still have love for each other, but things are over romantically.

Happening in NYC: Violence erupted at a male-only far-right event for the Proud Boys at the Metropolitan Republican Club. After a speech by Gavin McInnes, the founder of the Proud Boys, someone began committing vandalism with swords. Three white supremacists were arrested for the crime, including founder McInnes himself. https:

I have often been haunted by the mystery of what is going on with the woman on the left’s interesting “hat”, dominating the blow-up photograph in Lerner 510, feat. Levi. 

I am tired of mulling over it at 3 am every single night and thusly have decided to solve this great enigma.
