Bucket List represents the unbelievable intellectual privilege we enjoy as Columbia students. We do our very best to bring to your attention important guest lecturers and special events on campus. As always, feel free to mention any events we may have missed in the comments section (and/or mock our typos) and we’ll add them. Our recommendations for this week are below and the full list is after the jump.

Revamped: Bwog Events

Huzzah! It’s new, it’s now, it’sBwog Events! Please direct your attention to our super spiffy events sidebar, courtesy of Bwog tech guru Hans Hyttinen.

  • Click on the Events on Campus link and, by the magic of the Internet, you’ll be taken to a snazzy Google Calendar of events run by students groups. Upcoming happenings are listed directly above for reference. Submit to the calendar with the online events form, or if you’re still feeling nostalgic for the ol’ backwards days, email events@bwog.com.
  • We’ll keep posting the Bucket List every Monday with recommended academic events and lectures sponsored by departments and other University-affiliated organizations. The Bucket List link on sidebar will lead you to the most recent post.
  • Every Thursday, we’ll post Where Art Thou, a weekly arts round-up with separate sections for on-campus student-run productions, department-run events, Miller Theatre offerings, and off-campus Columbia performances. To get on this list, e-mail editors@bwog.com.
  • “But Bwog,” you say, “my event deserves more than a mere mention on your round-up or a silly spot on your calendar.” So buy an ad! It’s only $10 per day. Buying a Bwog ad is like flyering in a place where thousands of people pass by everyday without wasting paper! And if you want a more official justification, email ads@bwog.com and ask about our uber-fancy media kit.
