Several teams, including Columbia Football, have posted their game schedules for the 2021 season, confirming that the Lions are ready to jump back into intercollegiate competition after being on hold due to the pandemic.
Bwog uncovered that President Lee Bollinger as the head of the University administration suggested the possibility of pressuring non-tenure-track instructors, in particular, to teach in person for the Fall 2020 semester. Additionally, we uncovered deep

And are you sick of real estate tycoons conspiring with major universitites in order to mind-control unsuspecting students using electromagnetic satellites? Then you, my paranoid friend, have something in common with a former SIPA student who has spent the past week spamming dozens […]
One week from the infamous day, we offer this SNL original. It’s no “Dick in a Box,” but it’s pretty close. Andy Samberg and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, together at last.

…or is it? The last news van has left Broadway, and the time has come for the national media to postmortem fair Alma’s latest tryst with controversy. Predictably, the Weekly Standard has nothing but nice things to say about the outcome of today’s event. Meanwhile, Salon’s Michael Grieve predicts that PreazBo’s speech (relive the moment […]
Find CNN’s Live Feed here! The speech is starting, and it’s like a movie: Coatsworth asked everyone to turn off their cell phones and to stay seated, lest the Secret Service get all up on their asses. 1:50: Bwog has been chased out of Hamilton. Unbelievably, people are still in class. Inside, someone threw a […]
Everyone from firefighters to Yeshiva University to guys in kilts playing “God Bless America” on bagpipes are thronging outside the gates.
