It is the worst of times, and the most liminal of times. Reading week snuck up on us with a slap and here we are during finals: broken, disheartened, and yearning for summer (why is it still
Amir’s, the little restaurant on Broadway between 113th and 114th that served Middle Eastern and vegetarian fare, has closed, at least temporarily. There is a sign on the door explaining that Amir’s “must close their doors for now,” but that the staff “feel that this is not a final goodbye”; they “hope to ‘pop-up’ really […]
In a previous Classical Whine, we expressed our love for ReCAP, but this time we’re shouting out a hero closer to home: the Columbia University Library System. This Classics major just really appreciates Butler, what can we say? Whenever I hear people say they have never checked out a book from a library, I pity them […]

My sweet angel Jenny has already written a goodbye post for the old board, but it only seems fitting that the outgoing Editor in Chief also write a farewell post of sorts. My tenure on Bwog’s editorial board for the past year and as Editor in Chief for the past semester (and the summer, I […]
Cooking with Bwog is back! In case you haven’t noticed, it’s cold now, and soup is a good food to eat when you’re cold, so today at Bwog we’re making dumpling soup. I actually made this last week but whatever. You can make it tonight. I got this recipe from Maangchi’s YouTube channel. Ingredients: Beef […]
For this edition of Classical Whines, Editor in Chief and Bwog’s resident Classics major, Youngweon Lee, interviewed Emily Wilson, professor of Classical Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, whose translation of the Odyssey replaced Lattimore’s on the Literature Humanities syllabus this year.
For most Americans, including probably the majority of students at Columbia, Thanksgiving is a holiday to go home, eat as much turkey as can possibly fit in your body, and spend time with your family. Or at least that’s my understanding; I wouldn’t know because I’ve never gone home for Thanksgiving in the past 6 […]
If you’ve ever had a conversation with me, you know that I’m not a woman in STEM™. I’ve never been very good at math or science, and have come to complete peace with that. I can’t even say numbers in French, my actual major, or read Roman numerals past 39, though Classics is my other actual major. The […]
I know we love to hate dining hall food because we get sick of the Ferris-John Jay-JJ’s (plus Diana and Hewitt—if you still refuse to go to Hewitt, it’s literally your loss) rotation, and this might be a spicy hot take, but dining hall cookies are good. They are the beacons of lawful good in this […]
e’s Bar had their highly anticipated grand opening night last Thursday and is stepping in to fill the void left by Amigos. We here at Bwog had some curiosities, as we do, so we asked them some questions and got some answers. (The interview has been lightly edited for readability.)
Today on Cooking With Bwog, we have Korean beef radish soup! Bwog’s resident Korean and EIC Youngweon Lee follows a recipe by YouTuber Maangchi. Do you just happen to have half of a giant Korean radish left over in your pantry from making dried pollack soup a few days ago? No? Just me? Well, regardless […]
