Like all CC students who pretends they actually read all two-hundred-something pages of Plato’s Republic, we here at Bwog like to say that we have a passion for civic duty.

Professors Gone Wild: Call For Opening Remarks

The only thing that might be wackier than the aggressiveness of the cold wind outside, the still-mediocre SSOL redesign, and this season of The Bachelor combined…..is syllabus week.

Bwog Love: Goodbye To Our Bwog Board/Parents

When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one Bwog family to dissolve the political board which has connected them with another, and to create among the powers of Bwog, the separate and equal new board to which the Laws of Nature and of past Alma Bwoggers entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that […]

Campus Dining Halls As Plato’s Five Regimes

I’ve spent a lot of my time here on Bwog (perhaps too much time) writing about my favorite campus subject…the dining halls. This article will be no different. This time, we’re having a go at classifying each dining hall under the framework of Plato’s Five Regimes, which any CC student might be all-too-familiar with.

Behind The Facade Of McBain

In early June, the New York Times (NYT) published an article about McBain Hall’s safety violations. After citing historical failures in its building maintenance, the piece depicted Columbia as ignoring a “façade so decrepit that city inspectors have issued several violations for the risk it posed to the public.” While this incident might initially seem […]
