Until Next Year, Columbia

To our readers: it’s been a minute since the academic year began, but you have finally made it to the (halfway) finish. Congratulations! I thank you for standing by us this semester. Though these past four months have been seemingly mild, I appreciate your loyal readership nonetheless. I would also like to take this opportunity […]

Overseen: Historical Revisionism On The Columbia Facebook Page

Like most schools, Columbia has a somewhat propagandist social media presence (like, where do they find all those pictures of smiling students?). Yesterday, to that end, Columbia’s Facebook page posted a “reminder of what a winter day should look like on campus”– you mean, because it’s so warm? Or because snow in NYC seems to immediately turn […]

Bwog’s Resolutions For The New Year

As our semester draws to a close, we (as most Columbia students tend to do) are already looking to the new year. As you make your way home for the holidays, remember to take time this vacation to relax and realign (or something…do we sound like a Soul Cycle instructor?). Here’s a list of our […]

Bwog In Bed: New Level Edition

It’s (technically) the last day of finals, but we’re hoping your professors moved your finals that were supposed to be today to some time last week. Most of Bwog is home by now, and we’re using this winter vacation to relax, recharge, and return to school feeling like we’re “on a new level” (or something). […]

Actual Wisdom: Philip Protter

The outpouring of actual wisdom continues with Statistics professor Phillip Protter, who talks surprisingly little about statistics and surprisingly a lot about football and coffee houses. Justify your existence in 30 words or fewer: I click to save the world, therefore I am. Claim to fame: I took second in the mile relay for the state […]

Bwog Poetry

Now seems like a pretty good time to reflect upon the past year, so we used a website called Poetweet to turn some of our tweets from this year into poetry. Poetweet kindly produced a sonnet, a rondel, and an indriso, and even titled the poems for us. Some of the stanzas are quite apt, and […]

Bunsen Bwog: If This Is The Apocalypse, At Least We’ll Find Love

Per usual, science is terrifying and we’re all going to die. However, supposedly we’ll find love in the middle of [instert crisis here]? It’s a little unclear. Courtesy of the optimistic(?) Phoebe Newton, this edition of Bunsen Bwog is the apocalyptic version of spending an hour on WebMD (only to discover that you are for […]

Bwog In Bed: Is This The Real Life? Edition

Finals are almost over. Your ability to sit in a library for hours on end is running low. You’re starting to wonder if this is really your life, or some kind of hellish vision that your brain concocted during your freshman year of high school and has been punishing you with ever since. But don’t […]

Field Notes: Barely Hanging On Edition

Finals are a trying time – not only for our minds, but also for our hearts, bodies, and souls. But that doesn’t mean we can’t still have fun on the weekend … right? We’re stressed and we’re distressed, but we’re hanging on. At least, we’d like to think we are. And, as always, if you’d […]

Actual Wisdom: J.C. Salyer

With finals bearing down so heavily upon our backs, we could all use a little humor and a little wisdom. J.C. Salyer, term assistant professor in the anthropology department at Barnard, offers both. Also, cats. Justify your existence in 30 words or fewer: I reject the cynical econometrics of your neoliberal biopolitics and its implication that […]

Shit Our Notes Say

Finals is a time of searching frantically back through your notes, fervently hoping that something you scribbled down in a lecture two months ago will help you pass your exam tomorrow. Bwog has been doing the same thing, but unfortunately, instead of stumbling upon useful insights, we only found strange doodles and barely-decipherable comments. Here, […]

“Baking” With Bwog: The Many Uses of Oregano

Back in October, three Baker Bwoggers made “special” brownies – special in the sense that they contained pretzels and caramel. Two months later, after a semester at college and in the midst of finals, other Bwog staff writers decided it was high time to make some really special brownies. And by “really special,” we mean with oregano. It’s […]

Bwog In Bed: Be Your Own Hero Edition

Yes, we know, it’s Monday. And not just any Monday – the Monday of finals week. To get through this trying time, you’re going to need courage, perseverance, and the kind of ridiculously positive attitude that will make all the cartoon villains resent you. Unfortunately, Bwog can’t give you an epic training montage, but we can […]

As finals season comes to a close, the fall term is wrapping up in typically horrifying fashion. For this semester’s final installment of Dark Night, Bwog is bringing you the good, the bad, and the ugly. But, as usual, mostly just the ugly.
