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 […]

We weren’t sure what this “reading week” stuff was all about, so we sent staff writer Phoebe to find out. Turns out, we’re actually expected to study this week! Well, that wasn’t going to happen, so instead Phoebe compiled a list of 10 alternatives to this “studying” nonsense to get you through the next seven or […]

Thanksgiving is soon upon us. Some of us will go home, others will stay here and enjoy extra Columbia FLEX dollars or a free meal at a Barnard alumna’s house. But what about pre-Thanksgiving Friendsgiving? You probably spend more time with your friends than your parents or family. Plus, we’re basically adults, and group cooking […]

As the semester pushes onward, most of us have stopped caring what we wear to class (or what we wear to the dining halls, or the libraries, or what we look like altogether).

Stargazing, astronomy, science, math, dark matter, and ghost galaxies, all on Friday, November the 13th? Sounds almost too spooky for life.

Droves of locals and Columbia students gathered last night for […]

Bwog staffer Phoebe Newton bravely faces capitalism and the masses to stand up for what she believes in–what is truly right–the eradication of Halloween. Of course I hate Halloween. I can understand the overwhelming […]

On Monday night, members of the Barnard and Columbia community gathered to create an artistic farewell tribute to the well-loved (and well-worn) Lehman Library. While doodling on the walls, many students fondly recalled long nights spent in a stress-induced panic before a big assignment. Or just pretending to look studious while secretly texting under the […]

Ever noticed the creeping band of children’s rhymes the scroll along a wall of Morton Williams? Well, we have, and we were curious. Bwogger, part-time exorcist, and pumpkin enthusiast Phoebe Newton checks it out for us. Morton Williams was not always a grocery store. Long ago, before the food, before the ubiquitous franchise, the brothers […]

Every September since 2012, the Processional Arts Workshop has orchestrated an annual event known as Morningside Lights, and this year the procession returned to the Columbia campus. Staff Writer Phoebe Newton scoped out the scene for us this Saturday night, to see if it truly was, as they say, lit. Many Columbia University students argue that […]

First years bring with them alarming enthusiasm, an adorable naïveté, and healthy egos (soon to get knocked down a peg to be rebuilt over their remaining years). They also bring an interest in all things, which, when paired with a sense of scientific discovery, yields the truly remarkable: a first year with something new to teach […]
