Under the Big Tent

Dear underclassmen: When you get to be a senior, Columbia will start dong nice things for you, in hopes that those good feelings will be the ones that stick when you have more money than you need for basic survival. Senior dinner is one of those things, and this evening, many thousands of dollars went […]

Outgoing Dean of Columbia College Austin Quigley has just issued a goodbye letter to the students of Columbia College. He wants us to know what an impact we have all made, “individually and collectively,” on his life in the past fourteen years, and so he has copied and pasted his own statements from a previous […]

 – Via the Cornell Chronicle An hour ago, Spec was forwarded an email from Dean Kevin Shollenberger announcing that Cornell Vice-Provost for Undergraduate Education Michele Moody-Adams will be the next Dean of the College. Moody-Adams, who will replace the retiring Dean Austin Quigley, will be the first woman to hold the post. Moody-Adams (whose last […]

The cast of the 115th Varsity Show entered to raucous applause from the crowd of 100 packed into the back room of the West End (as it will forever remain, at least for V-Show purposes). Our host for the evening was this year’s narrative patriarch, retiring Dean Austin Quigley, caught up in reading his own […]

Holiday merrymakers braved the drizzle this evening to drink hot chocolate, listen to a capella, and bask in the warmth of Austin Quigley’s valedictory address. The departing dean – who said he was looking forward to teaching next semester – waxed eloquent about the meaning of holiday time as a period of renewal, and a […]

Maintenance was out early this morning prettying up the trees on College Walk, in preparation for everyone’s favorite holiday ritual: tree lighting! We know, the lights have been lit for like a week, but it’s really just an excuse for Dean Quigley to preside (for the last time!), hot chocolate to be consumed, and a […]

Bwog’s inbox is abuzz with declarations, communiques, and plans regarding the encampment on Striker Lawn (although the strikers themselves are now tucked away in Malcolm X lounge, safe from the damp).  You should have all received the first tidbit, from Deans Quigley and Dirks: an enumeration of what they’re already doing to address the general […]

A smattering of students and a sea of empty chairs confronted Deans Quigley, Colombo, and Friedman (SEAS) about the noose incident at an event this afternoon sponsored by the Columbia Queer Alliance. The small showing was probably due to the time – noon on a Thursday – and also because the admins agreed to show […]

Want extraneous ephemera? We’ve got extraneous ephemera! Bwog missed it while QuickSpecking, since the classic headline “Penn to Teach at Penn” ran under today’s College Briefs in the print edition only. “Sean Penn?” one student was overheard wondering. Not quite, and if seniors here are upset about Matthew Fox speaking on Class Day, we wonder what they’d think […]

Columbia College Dean Austin Quigley is hosting a senior class reception tonight at 5:30 in Lerner’s Satw Room. The event announcement mentions a “SUPER SECRET-HUGE-AMAZING announcement at 6:00pm sharp,” which, Bwog hears, is the identity of the 2007 Class Day speaker. We’re hoping for a speaker who’s a bit more Tony Kushner than John McCain […]

Bwog correspondent Addison Anderson was there.  I couldn’t stay for the whole thing, but Dean Quigley read an (the best) excerpt from Dylan Thomas’s “A Child’s Christmas in Wales” for about fifteen minutes to a rapt audience, and repeatedly told us to keep an eye out for friendly ghosts of Columbia’s past.  Then some administrators […]

Dinner with Austin

This evening, twelve lucky EC residents— and some prisoners of Wien —were invited to supper with the chipper, quick-witted dean of Columbia College himself, the venerable Austin E. Quigley. Bwog editor Chris Szabla was there and recounts what he learned about the origins of the major system, the progression of globalization, and British playwright Harold […]

QuickConvocation

In which Bwog allows you to feel like you were there without actually having to sit through it. Chris Colombo, Dean of Student Affairs: lived up to his Sopranos-worthy name by welcoming all ’10-ers to the family. Cindy Horowitz, head of NSOP: do we even have a pre-law major?  Sweet, but why is there a […]
