On Tuesday afternoon, a pigeon flew into a Bwog Staffer’s window and stared into their soul. The moment was so moving the young writer eternalized it in the poem New York Times critics have called

Despite the erratic progression of this year’s student council elections process, Bwog believes we have finally reached a time of peace. In this calm before tomorrow’s 10AM election storm, we would like to take the time to endorse both Jay Rappaport, CC ’18, and Josh Schenk, CC ’19, for the two open Columbia College University Senator positions. After many discussions with […]
Earlier this evening, an anonymous source on Bacchanal confirmed that Rae Sremmurd, Marian Hill, and Bibi Bourelly are headlining this year’s annual spring concert. This marks the first time in recent Bacchanal history that the headliners have included female performers. Today, the Bacchanal Committee met with Public Safety for another formal event review concerning the layout of the […]
We have received information from a Bacchanal committee member confirming multiple tips that Rae Sremmurd, Marian Hill, and Bibi Bourelly are this year’s headliners for the annual Spring Bacchanal concert. According to our source, Public Safety and administrators in charge of planning Bacchanal are stonewalling the Committee from sharing any information about this year’s headliners with the student body until after all the tickets […]
Today the Bacchanal committee released information regarding this year’s ticketing policy. In case you weren’t here for last year’s (lupe) fiasco, Public Safety limited access to the concert to only 4,000 undergraduate students at a cost of $7/ticket, the first time the committee charged to attend the concert. This year’s concert will still be limited […]
Fuck fuck fuck. In case you haven’t already heard, your (presumably shitty) lottery number is available just in time to fuck up your first Monday back on campus. Approach the Housing Portal with caution, and take sudden breakouts of hysteria all around campus as normal activity. Maybe you just woke up; maybe you’re just leaving class. Either way, your shitty situation […]
Come get (coffee) buzzed with Maddie and me outside of Butler today! Our generous publishers James and Nik accidentally left me the Bwog credit card this weekend, and so I thought, “what better way to celebrate than by giving away coffee and racking up some serious Starbucks stars along the way?” In honor of midterms, Bwog will be giving away […]
For those of you in SEAS not active on Facebook, you probably haven’t seen a new meme circulating News Feeds. The “This is _____” meme became popular over the weekend, gaining traction most likely due to Winter Storm Jonas-related boredom. The meme consists of a stick figure depiction and a short truism about the Facebook user. Meme Maniac Mason Amelotte took […]
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 […]
After dabbling in déboulés (amongst other things) last year, Deputy Dance Dynamo Mason Amelotte couldn’t help but lunge at the opportunity to review Columbia Ballet Collaborative’s annual fall showcase. He thusly offers his thoughts and opinions on last night’s opening performances. Avid balletomanes took to Lincoln Center last evening to see the first of two […]
This year, we decided to follow up on Alpha Chi Omega’s annual fall philanthropy event ‘Runway Warriors.’ Deputy Editor Mason Amelotte reports once more on the fashion show. This Friday, Alpha Chi Omega held their annual fall philanthropy event—a fashion show and raffle to end domestic violence—called Runway Warriors. The Theta Psi chapter of the sorority partnered […]

We were recently tipped a photo of the community contract made by a floor of first-years in the Barnard quad, so we decided to investigate some of the dumb guidelines, deliberately ambiguous rules, and just plain weird shit freshmen write in their floor lounges during their first week at Columbia and Barnard. Columbia students and parents–this is what your “young […]
Like a preteen’s young, supple body, our campus is always changing. For the better or worse, this semester alone has seen plenty of changes brought to MoHi, which is why we’re here to help you determine which new on-campus feature best aligns with your ever so charming personality.
In keeping with the theme of making our baby Bwoggers cover events they have no contextual knowledge of, we sent our Sunday daily editor to Monday night’s roundtable discussion of dance criticism at Barnard titled “Team Dance: The Dance Critics of the New York Time.” Mason Amelotte shares his thoughts below. I entered the unfamiliar […]
This year, we ignored our haphazardly implemented tradition of making the outgoing EIC review the semi-annual Latenite comedy show, and instead we sent an under-qualified daily editor to check it out. Mason Amelotte thusly brings you his review of Latenite Theatre: Spring 2015 Anthology. This year’s three night spring anthology showcased nine short plays that were written […]
