That’s why we’re bringing back BwogSalon, a feature in which we invite other publications to share an article from a recent issue. So sit back, don’t relax, and procrastinate your studies with the following […]
Columbia scientists take no vacations! Defying conventional medical technology, one Columbia engineer has decided to build his way out of the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Africa. The mChip, now passing its fourth year of testing, aims to deliver the diagnostic capabilities of a full-fledged lab to patients on a hundred-dollar chip. In case that’s not impressive, […]

The CU Dance Marathon finally wrapped up at 4:00 PM today after 28 hours of the “Cha-Cha Slide,” a bhangra lesson, and pretty much every Top 40 dance hit since 1985. Sadly, Bwog missed the rumored Judah Friedlander appearance. But the good news is the grand total raised: $50,020 by over 80 dancers for the […]

Meanwhile, it’s the last issue for the magazine’s current staff. Round of applause! “Hipster rag” no longer? (page 2) But always […]
