A long, long 14 years ago, in the bowels of the Blue and White’s offices, a small campus news blog was born…
The teen years are hard. You have to deal with a changing website that doesn’t always work the way you want it to, the occasional outbreak of trolls in your comments section, and embarrassing yourself in new and exciting ways in front of your teachers and peers. But the big 1-4 also brings with it new friends (in the form of our always-growing staff), the chance to explore new interests (whether you’re entering high school or hopping some clubs), and learning from the wisdom of your predecessors, whether you listen or not.
We want to thank you for sticking with us for the past 14 years of campus news, gossip, shitposts, and more! In honor of the Columbia community’s years of support for this beautiful, wonderful, original, grandiose publication, Bwog proudly presents a random, vaguely birthday-themed video for every year we’ve been alive, along with an iconic post from the Bwarchive. We hope you’ll stick around for the next 14, or until our site/the entire island of Manhattan falls into the ocean!
